Hot Hot Heat: Romantic Summer Styled Shoot

Another amazing Rising Tide Society collaboration to share with you all today! Earlier this year, South Carolina photographer Victoria was on the hunt for invitations to suit a burgundy and gold styled bridal shoot she was planning. Luckily, she thought my burgundy and blush watercolor florals were the perfect fit!

I especially love that she incorporated other items like DIY place cards and signage throughout the shoot. I simply sent her blank pieces with coordinating watercolor graphics, and they used a gold pen to fill them in on-site.

Borrowed and Blue thought the shoot was pretty awesome too, as we were featured on their blog last month!

Yes Way Rosé Inspiration

A few months ago the lovely and talented Julianna over at The Newport Bride asked if I’d send a few goodies for some upcoming styled shoots. Having seen her work making the rounds on social media for a few months, my answer was of course a resounding “YES!”

I took the opportunity to create a project I’ve been pitching to clients for months now: Plexiglass signage and invites hand-lettered with white ink. I’m completely obsessed with how they turned out!

Here’s a sneak peek of a few of my favorite shots, and make sure to click through to Yes Way Rosé Inspiration on the Newport Bride for more!

Boho Bride

I’m sure you all have been holding your breath since I first wrote about my Boho Watercolor Floral Wedding Invitations, so inhale deeply, because this shoot will take your breath away. Based on the inspiration, I wasn’t quite sure how this shoot was all going to come together, but I am just so impressed with Alex Perry‘s coordinating and every last one of Morgan Anderson‘s photographs.

Apparently, so is The Perfect Palette, who featured the shoot in November. This was my first time on the popular wedding and event blog, so I was very excited! Check out some of my favorite images and all the vendors below, and order invites in my shop!

Bouquets and Bunches

bouquet_large_5r0a7725

Is there anything better than an armful of colorful blooms? I don’t think so, especially when they are lovingly handmade and last forever. So when I got together with Adi of Ballyknock Photo, I brought a bunch of bouquets along with the crowns from my last post. white_arrangement_5r0a7572

This monochromatic arrangement was actually a commission for a wedding show and was shipped out the day after it was photographed. Since the blooms were all whites and creams, I wanted to create interest with a variety of flower types and textures, especially in the foliage by incorporating paper evergreens, succulents and branches berries in with my hand-dyed leaves.white_arrangement_5r0a7606

burgundy_bouquet_5r0a7372 When I was home this fall, I splurged on a super fancy Italian crepe paper in a gorgeous merlot color. It looks so beautiful with reds, fuchsias, purples… pretty much everything. I love this bouquet! bike_5r0a7851I wanted to try a few shots with my scooter, and they turned out even better than I imagined! My model thought I was crazy, but I just love these funky boots with her beautiful lace tea-length gown. bike_5r0a7796

While I love color, I really enjoyed putting together this more traditional bridal bouquet of whites and pinks. Shop all flowers here!

Still Alice

I mentioned my upcoming Alice in Wonderland styled photo shoot in my last post, but I realized I didn’t give you very many sneak peeks! So this post is where I spill all the beans.big_rose_5R0A4029

The first rose I tackled was actually the giant number above. The planner for the shoot envisioned the bridesmaids with two huge individual white roses instead of a bouquet. They were time consuming and between two of them used up an entire roll of crepe paper, but super fun to make and turned out beautifully! I’m so excited to see them worked into the shoot.

The bride’s peony and rose bouquet is a little more my style, but I also put quite a few Alice-esque twists on it. Lots of red and white roses—of course—and I also worked in a few “leaves” made from playing cards, with the Queen of Hearts featuring prominently. This photo is just a quick phone snap—can’t wait to see what the professional photographer does with these!
