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.

One of my favorite things about Spring is that my garden begins to bloom.  All of the flowers and greens are from my personal garden.  Who doesn’t love clematis, columbine, hosta, and ninebark?!  I think that you can tell that I’m still obsessed with floral fascinators and floral jewelry.

Pennsylvania Wedding Florist: Tara Keely Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal

Can I tell you how much I love springtime?!  Flowers are finally in full bloom.  It just makes me so happy.  One of my favorite things is working with locally grown flowers and greens, especially from my own garden when I can.

Have you ever thought about using only locally grown flowers and greens for your wedding?  Buying local is a big trend right now, and one that I support.  The flowers and greens from these arrangements came from The Farm at Oxford which is a flower farm in Lincoln University, Pennsylvania.  I love working with Mara and all of the beauties that she grows!

Tulips, azaleas, daffodils, wisteria, and a mix of greens were used to create these light and airy centerpieces.  I even mixed in some hosta leaves, boxwood, and vinca greens from my own garden!

Elkton Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Grace at Milburn Orchards

What started out as a chilly and windy day, changed into sunny and beautiful weather for this floral stylized photo shoot at Milburn Orchards in Elkton, Maryland.  Grace would have made a picture perfect flower girl in a wedding.

Her floral crown and belt were designed and created with flowers and greens out of my garden including hostas, zinnias, ferns, pompom mums, and buds of rose of sharon. I love the soft golden glow that emanates from these pictures. She was so cute in her dress that was accented in gold sequins.  I wanted to bring this element into the flower crown and belt.  I also added some lace to round out the vintage feel.
