Welcome to my favorite styled shoot. I’m sure I’ve said that before at some point, I’ll probably say it again too, buuut this one is really really good. I absolutely love working with Korie, she cares about the little details just as much as I do and has a really wonderful eye. Plus the fact that she whipped up all the paper because she is a calligraphy wizard is also kind of perfect.
Korie collaborated with Fox Hollow Design who did the beautiful watercolor. Styling all of their beautiful hard work was such a treat.
The bouquet was a mix of garden roses, ranunculus, anemones, dark hypericum berries, foraged greenery, and carnations. I usually leave carnations out of a description, but they are a flower I’ve started using more and more, they are quite perfect for installations or filler when you need A LOT of something, they are obviously inexpensive and when mixed in with really high end arrangements they don’t typically end up looking like carnations.
Our makeup artist Erica (Hey Lovely) typically rounds up our models for us and she did not disappoint, quite easily the most beautiful models we’ve ever had. Made even more beautiful by the wonderful hair and makeup- Erica always seems to completely knock it out of the park.
That black ribbon is just so dreamy, I recently used it at a real wedding as well and it’s just really inky and dramatic, I actually purchased it on Etsy too and it was much more inexpensive than a lot of the ribbon I have bought in the last year.
I love this table. We had a Silk and Willow runner and topped it with those black taper candles for days, I have a love hate relationship with taper candles. I LOVE them so much, but I HATE that they are not allowed at most venues. Most flames have to be contained, BUT wedding venues- they are SO pretty, start allowing these please!
The day we shot this was so exciting seeing everything come together. Sadly, I won’t be creating any styled shoots this year, so this one will have to tide us all over for awhile, but I’m sure I’ll be back at it again next year because I can only contain myself for so long :)
