Chester County Wedding Florist: Nature Inspired Editorial Shoot

Having you ever dreamed of frolicking in a field of flowers?!  If so, you’re going to love this editorial shoot!  The picturesque venue was the fields of The Farm at Oxford in Lincoln University, Pennsylvania.  Mara, the owner of The Farm at Oxford, grew all of the flowers and greens used in this photo shoot.  I love being able to work with Mara to use locally grown flowers and greens in my floral designs!  Being to get unique varieties of flowers is an added bonus to buying from a local flower farmer.

Kylene of Leave It To Me Photography is the talented woman behind the lens for this editorial shoot.  She is amazing at being able to capture the perfect light in a picture!  Jen of Jen’s Hair Creations used her skill with hair and make-up to enhance Sarah’s beauty.  Our gorgeous model Sarah is one of the ladies from Jennifer’s Bridal, who provided the dress and jewelry.  Can you believe that Sarah’s boyfriend proposed to her shortly after this shoot?!  Congratulations Sarah on your engagement!  We all know that you will be a beautiful bride!

My inspiration for this editorial shoot came from a girlhood dream of wandering through a meadow of flowers.  My grandparents used to live on a large property.  When I was younger, I loved to venture through the woods to the meadow that was on the other side.  If you haven’t figured out already, my obsession with flowers started at an early age!

I wanted the style of this shoot to look as if Sarah was walking through this field gathering flowers.  I used a variety of greens and white flowers to create this bridal bouquet, floral crown, cake, and candelabra centerpiece.  I chose to use white to accent the stunning gown by Jim Hjelm designed by Hayley Paige.  This is the gown for you if you want to stand out!  It is a classic style but with a punch of spunk!  To add a small pop of color, we added these fun earrings and bracelet from Haute Bride.

Delaware Wedding Florist: Alyssa & Ian’s Engagement Shoot

Alyssa and Ian are about the cutest couple I have ever seen.  Megan of Honey Bee Photography captured their love in their magical engagement shoot at the enchanting Gibraltar Gardens in Wilmington, Delaware last fall.

Alyssa and Ian got engaged at Disneyland in California.  How awesome is that?!  I absolutely love the touch of Disney with the carved Mickey pumpkin they used in their engagement photos.  They wanted to have their pictures taken in a beautiful garden that was kind of reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast.  I think that Gibraltar Gardens was the perfect site!

I loved designing and creating a whimsical floral crown for Alyssa with grapevine, ranunculus, and succulents.  I think that it looked gorgeous on Alyssa!

I wanted to design unique and spunky floral accessories to compliment these incredible gowns at the Hayley Paige Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal.  Most people don’t think about the endless possibilities of how to use flowers within their wedding.  I suggest going against the grain to make your wedding memorable.  Have you ever thought about wearing floral jewelry?!  Or even a floral crown or hairpiece?

Rehoboth Beach Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Hannah & Giannah

In anticipation of the upcoming wedding season, I wanted to share this floral stylized photo shoot of Hannah and her daughter Giannah.  It was a damp and breezy day at the beach, but any day at the beach is wonderful!

The pictures were taken at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.  Seeing this boardwalk always brings back fond memories from my childhood.  Once I can see the Dolle’s sign, I get filled with excitement just like I did when I was a little girl.

The inspirational bridal bouquet and floral hairpieces warmed this day right up with their vibrant color scheme.  Red dahlias, orange protea, yellow roses and coxcomb bursting with greenery make the perfect selection for beach wedding flowers.

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me to schedule your own bridal consultation.

Wilmington Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Cassidy & Riley

Fall is my favorite time of year.  The leaves on the trees are changing colors and there is a crispness in the air.  I love the feel of this floral stylized photo shoot at Carousel Park and Equestrian Center.  Cassidy and Riley were the perfect little models.  Between the white lace and cowboy boots, they captured what makes autumn weddings so incredible.

I adore working in this color palette of reds, oranges, and yellows.  It just makes my heart glow.  I created floral headpieces and bouquets with a rustic flare that included mums, zinnias, solidago, sedum, nine bark, ivy and seed eucalyptus.  I hope that you enjoy these two girls as much as I enjoyed them.
