“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.

“How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root, and in that freedom bold.”

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.

One cannot get more elegant and timeless than Myriam and Hunter’s classic wedding. I knew from the moment that I met Myriam that we clicked. We both have a great love for beautifully classic wedding design. Her gorgeous bridal gown from Lillian Lottie Couture and Two Birds Bridesmaid dresses were perfect. I loved that she opted to wear a cathedral length veil, so romantic. Hunter looked so handsome in his dress uniform. Florals were kept soft and monochromatic with Patience Garden Roses, Quicksand Roses, Ranunculus, Jasmine Vine and lots of lush greenery. All the beautiful details were captured by the wonderful Feather & Twine Photography at Villa Siena in Gilbert, AZ.

The inspiration for this wedding shoot was simple, sleek elegance juxtaposed with living, botanical beauty. Our aim was to create inspiration for the couple that wants something different from soft pastels. The result is ultra feminine, yet still sophisticated. We turned our attention to nature’s lush and beautiful creations: ferns,  succulents, tillandsias, and the giant Gum tree. We were also inspired by the love and happiness shared by our models, real life husband and wife Sonny and Khristine, as they spent the afternoon walking the gorgeous grounds of the 90 year old Boyce Thompson Arboretum.

They are taught to dig deeper and truly feel and capture the love between couples, as well as the beauty that they conceptualized to make their day a true reflection of that love. I was thrilled when Karie asked me to participate in day two of her one on one workshops. Helping with this Spring Wedding inspiration was such a great and rewarding experience!
