Colorful Styled Shoot


Earlier this year I said I wasn’t going to do any styled shoots because I didn’t want to spend the money or invest the time into them. Fast forward 6 months to the present day, and I’ve completed two with two more on the docket. Eating my words because they are SUCH an excellent way to push yourself to design in a different style and/or use ingredients you normally wouldn’t.

We wanted something wild and colorful this time around. I am totally having a proud plant-mom moment looking back on these photos. All of the greens and vines are from my home garden. Hopefully next year I’ll have some bulb flowers and other blooms to add to my orders. Until then, I’m just going to sit back and admire how well all of these colorful flowers came together for these photos and how they are accented by my baby greens!


Jasmine vine, gardenia branches, mondo grass blossoms, lady ferns, bupleurum, yellow stock, pink and white spray roses, purple lisianthus, white peonies, and hot pink tulips.

Springtime Bridal Portraits

A few weeks ago I was asked to design a bridal bouquet and boutonnière for a styled photo shoot at Savannah Rapids, in Augusta, GA. Little did I know, I would be working with a real couple! 

These two lovebirds absolutely worked it, and I'm overjoyed I was able to participate as they recreated their wedding day. I might be biased, but I think there's something so special about couples that can renew their commitment weeks, months, or years after the fact. It was colder down at the river than any of us expected, but you definitely can't tell from looking at these! *insert fire emoji here*

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Ohara & spray roses, anemones, wax flower, gunny eucalyptus, bear grass, and dusty miller & snapdragons from my garden. I loveee adding in home-grown elements!
