Late Summer Bridal Inspiration with Peach, Yellow, Orange and Red Wedding Flowers at The Farm at Dover, Wisconsin

I really love working with warm color palettes. There's just something about these colors that make everything seem so comfortable and home-y. This late Summer bridal inspiration shoot took place in Wisconsin with some of my favorite vendor friends.

We worked hard to get that "realness" that you don't always see with editorial shoots. Our goal was to showcase the intentional moments spent by our bride before she was dressed and ready for her big day, followed by a few bridal portraits too. It was fun to dream up a morning routine for a bride to be at such a beautiful venue.

Hope you enjoy!

Huge thanks to Magnolia Rouge and Hochzeits Guide for featuring our shoot on their blogs too! :)

Botanical and Organic Inspired Celebration at The Kitchen, Chicago, with Peach, Pink, Cream and Burgundy Wedding Flowers

This botanical and organic inspired wedding was another favorite from last fall. Christina and Howard were one of the sweetest couples and had such a unique and special vision for their wedding day. What a joy to work with couples like them!

Their ceremony took place at Bond Chapel, on the University of Chicago's campus, with their reception following at The Kitchen Chicago. At the time, The Kitchen was a brand new restaurant and we were the first wedding they hosted. :)

Everything about their celebration was carefully planned and thought through, including their flowers. I loved using local Midwestern dahlias, garden roses, a mix of foliages and much more to create their fall, botanical look.

Christina and Howard's wedding day was featured on Style Me Pretty and Carats and Cake, too! On top of that, their celebration was chosen as a part of Style Me Pretty's March Madness competion and was crowned "Best Modern Wedding of All Time" by Style Me Pretty. Such an honor!!

Behind the Scenes with a Florist, Foraged Floral

I traveled to a farm in Wisconsin to do some head shots about 1.5 years ago with my good friend, and photographer - Kate Weinstein, and this is the outcome. A little snow (it was 14 degrees!), lots of laughter, and even a bouquet tutorial feature on Style Me Pretty. It was a super fun day playing around with flowers!

These photos are some of my favorites. I've never been happy with any photo taken of myself, until these! Kate really knocked it out of the park and made my awkwardness into something I will cherish forever. I felt like I was a total spaz the entire shoot, too! I don't know how you did it, Kate.

Thanks to SMP for the feature and to Kate for dealing with the cold with me on this crazy cold November day!

Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum Wedding Editorial Shoot - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

It's been a while since I've shared any of these photos. I wanted to bring them back because this time of year just reminds me of them! This was one of my first photo shoots as a florist, so it has a special place in my heart. It was also the first time I was able to work with Miya, Kate, and Grace, who have quickly become some of my favorite Midwestern wedding pros. We have all become great friends!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our time at Villa Terrace. This shoot was also featured on Style Me Pretty a while back.
