Back in September, I received an incredibly sweet email from a girl that I now totally adore. Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events contacted me to see if I was interested in designing flowers for a styled photo shoot she was styling in November. Kat paired up with the incredible and lovely Annamarie Akins, and together these ladies totally blew this photo shoot out of the water. The overlying theme was "I'll Be Home for Christmas," inspired by the Lindsay Letters "With You, Darling I am Home" print. I think with the help of some fabulous vintage family furniture, delectable seasonal props, and one of the most gorgeous couples I've ever laid eyes on, THEY NAILED IT. Regan and Strom, you guys are total babes! Our beautiful model is also the mastermind behind Regan Carter Photography- talk about talented!
I can't take credit for much in the below photos, but they are too incredible not to share. I think this is one of, if not my most favorite bouquets I've made to date. Normally I am not a huge fan of lilies, but these gorgeous, fragrant Oriental Lillies were something special when paired with soft blush pink flowers and other dreamy white blooms. Tied with the bouquet, my other favorite part of my contribution to this beautiful shoot was the live green table runner- full of seeded eucalyptus, spruce (hello Christmas!) and hanging amaranthus (the coolest flower ever.)
As if this shoot were not exiting enough, IT WAS FEATURED ON STYLE ME PRETTY THIS WEEK. Yep, that is absolutely deserving of all-caps. Head on over to the Style Me Pretty Southeast Regional blog and take a gander at these beauties! AHHHH!
Thank you Kat, Anna, and Regan for a lovely day and for photos that I will cherish! I can't wait to see you all again soon!
