I’m excited to share with you a few images from this very sweet wedding. Olivia and Jacob were married in the Tway House, a charming venue with a ton of character, on a beautiful September day. For the majority of the flowers, we kept things very simple using baby’s breath, snapdragons, and some pretty awesome paper flowers made by the bride’s crafty mama and sister. For the bride’s bouquet, we used an array of succulents in varying shades of green. Olivia wore a long veil for the ceremony, but wanted a fun headpiece to match her bouquet for the reception. I had such a fun time working on this wedding and getting to know this sweet couple.
Thank you to Olivia and Jacob for allowing me the honor of being a part of your most special day!

With fall officially in the air, I thought it would be fun to do a little post with a bouquet recipe using rich colors and textures to go with the season. When creating bouquets, I usually start with an idea in mind, but I also let it grow organically as I am putting the flowers together. When this particular bouquet was coming together, it felt decidedly like a bouquet for the bridesmaids. All of these flowers were gathered from local flower shops and would be a great DIY option for a budget friendly bridal party. Special thanks to my dear friend and amazing photographer Aubrey Fingerson for capturing this process in these beautiful photos.

For this particular shoot, I worked with my dear friend Aubrey Fingerson, of Aubrey Renee Photography. For the florals, I created a crown and bouquet or ranunculus, waxflower, spray roses, and carnations. In deciding the colors, I used peaches and oranges to really pop against our model’s blue eyes and the gray colors of the mid-March day. You can view the full gallery here.

While the bulk of what I do is wedding related, I always enjoy a good baby shower. Especially when I get to help plan and play with flowers. This baby shower for a friend was incredibly adorable, and with its camping theme, it was so different than most typical baby showers. I was super excited to be involved and also to get to stick around for the festivities.
Because the theme was centered around summer camps and camping in general, I wanted the florals to have a wild, natural feel with a lot of texture and organic flow. I used flowers that felt like they could have easily been picked from around a camp site and arranged them in a way that kind of let them go wild. They needed to reflect the atmosphere of the shower, and the personality of the mama-to-be.
