Whimsical Floral Accessories Shoot

Wearables-156.jpg

Spring is here and I thought it would be the perfect time to share these fun photos from our floral wearables shoot earlier this month. I wanted to take a break from the bridal side of styled shoots for this one and focus on some of our smaller pieces that are also great for prom, socials, the bridal party, and the parents.

We were watching the forecast all morning because Augusta looked like it would be dreary and wet for most of the afternoon. Luckily, the drizzle stopped right as we all met at Savannah Rapids to start shooting. The lighting was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to help me pull this off!

Click through (or sit and watch, it’s on autoplay for the patient people) to see the photos from our springtime photoshoot!

"Girl's Night Out" Styled Shoot

IMG_4465.jpg

Oh, what fun this was! It’s always a treat to be involved in collaborations that aren’t strictly wedding-related. A girl’s night out at Marion Hatcher Center? Uhm, yes please, where do I sign up? Ohhh you mean you just want me to do the flowers…? Ok, I’m cool with that, too!

This was such a great collaboration between local businesses, which (I just have to add) all happen to be woman-owned &/or operated. The venue was perfection, models were b-e-a-utiful, organization was top-notch, and the photos are gorgeous! I hope you enjoy viewing the full set-up as much as I enjoyed putting all the blooms in those cute little golden, geometric shapes.

"Something Blue" Styled Shoot

KG1A8367.jpg

My-oh-my, I am in love with how this turned out. I mean, you can't really go wrong with a beautiful venue, well-chosen decor, and pretty people, but the way this came together was near perfection. This shoot has also been published on The Southeastern Bride. You can find their feature here.

Not pictured: climbing over fences and horse gates to get to the ideal location on the farm for the dining experience I've only seen in my dreams. Okay, that might have been a little dramatic. I mean, there was some fence hopping... but, anyway. 

I went for a light and airy feel in the florals for this one. Browse through the gallery below to see how it all came together.  

I N G R E D I E N T S:

Silver dollar, seeded, and gunny eucalyptus, plumosa fern, Queen Anne's lace, roses, spray roses, carnation, and garden-grown dusty miller and pittosporum.

April Showers Photoshoot

_DSC3569-Edit.jpg

Not sure what to do with all of your garden flowers when they start to wilt away for the season? Stick 'em on your face! Pressing flowers can be a great way to keep some color around once the fall foliage fades, and all it takes is some patience and a heavy book or fancier flower press you can make yourself or find online.

This was one of the coolest photoshoots I've been a part of. I spent a few weeks pressing and drying flowers before we met up, and was so happy with the result. Talk about bohemian chic! Any brides want to try this look for their wedding? Bueller... Bueller?

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Pressed daisy, larkspur, hydrangea, snapdragon, rose, and dried statice. Affixed with vaseline, eyelash glue, and elbow grease.

Botanical Wedding

stephens-1047 (2017-10-28T12_56_57.491).jpg

These photos are scattered throughout the site, but there's something special about seeing them all together. We took a buggy and botanical leap to set up the ceremony and reception space to reflect a nature-inspired and down-to-earth theme. 

This wedding has also been published on The Overwhelmed Bride Blog and Aisle Society, but we kept a few photos hidden for ourselves ;).

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Lotus pods, craspedia, scabiosa pods, leather leaf fern, plumosa, seeded eucalyptus, white wax flower, dried zinnias, vintage amber and glass medicine bottles, and bugs of all sorts encased in acrylic (my apologies to those that were grossed out at the dinner tables).

"Into the Woods" Styled Shoot

styleds-1068.jpg

Last month the Honeycomb team trudged into Hitchcock Woods in Aiken, SC for an afternoon of styling with Dailey Alexandra Photography and Baked by Lex. We ran around in the mud (aka horse poop) for about 3 hours while Dailey brought my floral designs to life with her gorgeous photography. Shoutout to Alexis for running around barefoot in that as our model, and to all the equestrians we confused with our 'pop up wedding' in the middle of their trails.

This day was one for the books. Whose idea was it to fashion a real-wood arch, sweetheart table and its fixings, bouquets and arrangements and lug all the supplies about a mile into the woods? Certainly not I........... (sarcasm goes here). I am oh-so-thankful my husband knocked some sense into me and talked me out of carrying our 6-seater pine dining table back there! Although that might have been selfishly motivated on his part.... hmm. Moving on.

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Sahara & spray roses, curly willow, bupleurum, brunia, scabiosa pods, dried yarrow, ruscus, wax flower, and alllll the eucalyptus you can think of (silver dollar, willow, gunny, & seeded eucs)

Moral Support: Our dear hubs that helped wherever needed. I'm sure it was just what they wanted to do ;)
