Just a few quick photos of this weekend's highlights preparing for a beautiful blush pink and white wedding at the gorgeous Colony Club in Detroit... I found a new friend - the garden rose 'Kiera'! Love this perfect pale blush pink color and ruffled edges!
And here's a quick snap from my phone of the bride's bouquet of white peonies and pale pink astilbe - love these peonies!
I am so, so excited to share this styled shoot at Cottonwood Barn this past autumn, with a vintage to vogue theme, reflecting Cottonwood's amazing renovation. Cottonwood Barn is truly amazing and unique - it has the vintage feel of a loved and used barn, and its renovation is incredible. The gorgeous chandelier in the main reception space is truly jaw-dropping (even for us wedding pros, we couldn't stop talking about it!), and everything has been finished beautifully and thoughtfully. It's modern and practical in the right spaces (beautiful bride's suite with floor-length mirrors and adjacent to the modern ladies' room) and vintage and charming in the right ways, too (bar in a silo - how neat!). I can't say enough about how impressed I was with Cottonwood! Melanie Reyes and Dayna Mae did such an AMAZING job capturing every thing, and it was a wonderful team of vendors lead by Luna Soiree, including a fabulous vintage ice cream truck by Hello Ice Cream! Melanie captured all the highlights and vendors in a full blog here - I just wanted to post a few more of the flower photos here because there were so many I loved! Thank you so much to everyone involved - so great to be a part of this!
What an incredible image!
There were a couple of different bouquets for this shoot, each featuring blush and peach tones with a few highlights of blue or purple and lush foliages and textures. This bouquet featured peach juliet garden roses, seeded eucalyptus, cafe au lait dahlias, lotus pods, blue viburnum berries, queen anne's lace and white avalanche roses.
The centerpieces for the shoot also included ornamental kale, larkspur and purple mathiola atop a gold-colored glass compote to compliment the gold candelabra.
