I gathered some like-minded friends this past month and directed a photo shoot on the gorgeous property of Front Porch Farm in Healdsburg to highlight a few different bridal bouquet styles that really make me want to get married again. As with all of my bridal bouquets, I carefully selected the floral and botanical materials to reflect the individual as well as the setting and season.
The first bridal bouquet in this photo shoot features a neutral palette of ivory, gold, and taupe and a delicious juxtaposition of textural elements you'd find in a meadow against soft pillowy peonies and ranunculus. Sourcing from local flower growers allows me the joy of using unique materials for each occasion like the soft gold columbine, fragrant ivory sweet pea, new barley, or artichoke pod that I sourced directly from Front Porch Farm for this bouquet. I love the pop of the bright coral red lip contrasting with the neutral palette in the rest of this ensemble and riverside setting.
For the floral crown on my second model, we were going for a ¨Fawn Prince¨ look. I think we got pretty darn close. The textural, woodsy crown features a twisted dogwood branch, green barley, honeysuckle vine, snowberry, and ranunculus and seems right at home in these tall grasses.
Stay tuned for more posts from this photoshoot featuring a few more fresh bridal styles.
