This styled shoot was recently featured on Kentucky Bride
"From the photographer: When planning this shoot, I was really inspired by the refreshing feeling you get when spring rolls around, and I wanted that freshness to be portrayed in this shoot. Between the soft pinks and greens to the blossoming flowers in the greenhouse, this shoot was the epitome of the blissful spring season. What I think stands out the most about this shoot are the floral wearables, designed and crafted by florist, Tracey Parriman. I truly believe that there will be a fun boho plant-loving bride that will want to incorporate the floral wearables into her big day! Tracey even provided a floral wearable for the groom.
We were so thankful for beautiful dresses that tied the entire fresh and flirty look together that we were trying to achieve. We wanted to incorporate two dresses to showcase a more sophisticated and bold bride (lace dress) and also a fun, flirty bride (sweetheart neckline). Another fun detail that all brides can do is to incorporate traditional household items for unconventional ways in their wedding. Who would have thought that a vintage dresser with flowers overflowing would be the perfect cake stand? This can be done on any type of budget! We wanted to set a tone for brides that seemed realistic and possible to achieve. At the end of the day to get a similar look all you need is pretty florals, pops of color and a dress that fits your personality as a bride!"
My favorite parts of this shoot are, of course, the spring blooming trees, which you can almost smell. I also love the combination of Blossom and Petal Pink Silk Crepe de Chine Ribbon on the bouquet of gorgeous springy flowers from Tracey Rae Farmer Florist.
For this shoot, I also made a petal pink silk gauze runner, which blows soft and billowing in the breeze during the shoot.
