Leslie and Daniel are the sweetest friends and I was happy to be a part of this learning session. The Lake Wedding inspiration was beautifully styled by Leslie, herself. The Dahlia Rue de Seine gown from The Dress Theory was a stunner and Makeup by Destiny made their couple look amazing! Leslie also chose some beautiful streaming Frou Frou Chic ribbon to give just the right amount of movement to the images. It was also so fun for me to design the floral comb as an alternative to the very popular flower crowns.

www.brushfirephotography.comwww.brushfirephotography.comOver the past few years the desert has become a place of peace, calm and mystery for me. It’s much quieter than a forest full of noisy birds and such. One is left with their thoughts, void of distraction. It’s become a destination of choice for many seeking a desert wedding aesthetic. Inspiration for these images came from my love of the art of Georgia O’Keefe, a fellow desert dweller and very unconventional woman, let alone human being. She saw things in the desert and interpreted them in such a soft, yet strong way. I pondered about an unconventional bride and how she would feel beautiful on her desert wedding day. She would have free, windswept hair. A comfortable, yet ultra elegant gown. She would be paying much attention to her natural surroundings, feeling the moments fully. She would feel strong and hopeful with the warm rays of sun shining on her.

Mackenie and Dylan’s home wedding held in her parents backyard was like a scene out of a movie. There were so many smiles and tears of joy that day and it all felt even more special and intimate because it was held at the very place the bride grew up. It was a joy to work with my sweet friends Ace & Whim, who beautifully captured this special day pulled together by the super talented Shannon of Sassy Soirees.

“Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.”-Phylicia Rashad

When Emily from LVL Events contacted me about collaborating with florals on a table design shoot with Rachel Solomon, I was thrilled! It was so fun to focus on a pretty table design. Emily was inspired by her own wedding day and used the beautiful Celadon green floral linen from La Tavola Linen, pulled out her very own classic China, the gorgeous chairs from Glamour and Woods, and added the amazing wood details by Page and Mason. I got my hands on some incredible Peach Peonies that became the focal point of the centerpiece. It was also fun to incorporate some blooms I don’t normally use like Blush Dendrobium Orchids, Ferns, and Parrot Tulips.

What a joy it was to work with Maddie & Sean! They chose the gorgeous El Chorro  to celebrate their ceremony and reception. A Day to Cherish handled all of the planning and beautiful details that reflected their love for the desert in Spring. The vibrant blooms everywhere were such a unique compliment to the dusty colors of the desert. I love how their smiles shine the brightest of all! These lovely images were captured by Tina, of Melissa Jill Photography.
