It’s hard to believe this shoot was a little over two years ago. It was one of the very first shoots I was able to design with my friend and talent Ciara Richardson. We kept this shoot simple. I love looking back at the colors of this. While my style has evolved a bit, the colors are still very true to how I arrange. I like how the lavender picked up the purple in the acacia, and the the quicksand and hellebore balances out the purple to the white.

This shoot was part of a series of shoots we did monthly called flower of the month, highlighting a seasonal bloom in a unique concept. I miss those days!

This was one of my favorite weddings from last year. Shay was the model from one of my very first shoots. She is absolutely a vision. Her and Phil are two of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen. When she approached me about doing her wedding, she told me she wanted it to be simple and intimate, and a small gathering for family and friends in the mountains. It was exactly the type of wedding I dreamed of being a part of.

It didn’t come without it’s challenges, no running water, electricity, no air conditioning for the flowers. It was a little bit difficult, but worth it for this wonderful couple.

You can find this wedding on the pages of Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom Magazine.

001866-R1-015-EditI never thought I would be fortuned with an opportunity like this. The opportunity to teach others who are willing to learn from the knowledge I’ve gained over the last few years of doing flowers. I couldn’t have been more lucky with the girls who signed up. Each and every florist added a dynamic to the group that was uplifting and positive.

We decided to do film & flora back in January. It was an idea Mike had been thinking about for some time. We had both expressed a desire to teach, and felt it would be a really smart idea to bring the florists and photographers together in one workshop. That way, we could cover our costs, but still keep the groups small and intimate, so that a sense of one-on-one time would be still be had. It was nerve-wracking putting it out there. I know workshops are definitely #trending right now so I was a little concerned that people would lose sight of how ours is different.

I know there are amazing workshops out there, many of which I would love to attend myself! The difference with film&flora is that it’s a workshop really centered on learning. Mike and I were both completely open books for our students. We really wanted to share the same knowledge we have gained with our students. We kept our approach “laid back and un-presumptuous” as one student said, and because of that the students felt comfortable in the environment. With only 8 photographers and 6 florists, the groups were small enough that Mike and I were able to give each student one-on-one attention during lessons and instruction so their specific needs could be met.

We also of course wanted it to be beautiful, so having all of the florists create beautiful things for the photographers to shoot was a no brainer. We paired up florists and photographers so that they could build relationships with each other and hopefully get the opportunity to work together again.

One of the best aspects of doing the workshop was working with Rose Story Farm. I’ve been ordering roses from them for years now. They are beautiful and delicate, so to even fathom the idea of teaching among all of these gorgeous roses was beyond anything I could have imagined. The photographers and florists were so appreciative that we held it there. It was such an inspiring and beautiful place.

Another amazing thing was Emily Riggs joining us! She created us the most beautiful custom gowns that fir the workshop theme beautifully. Mike, Emily and I have worked together numerous times and it felt so perfect that she was there too. Her dresses are timeless and breathtaking both in photographs and in person. They have such an ethereal and beautiful movement to them, and they pair so beautifully with florals. We can’t even begin to thank Emily enough for sharing her enormous talent with us!

We are so grateful to all of the vendors who jumped on board and believed in our first workshop, and we hope to join forces with you again! Until next time!

This was such an amazing and inspiring location, Blue Basin, Oregon. The soil was actually as sea foam green as it appears in these photos. It contrasted with gorgeous burgundy colored rocks and was the perfect backdrop for these gorgeous bohemian inspired gowns Emily created for her latest collection. She planned the entire shoot, from the locations, to the models, to the overall styling. She’s a true visionary and talent. I’ve been lucky to work with her gowns on many occasions, and I hope they aren’t the last!

Inspired by pink, I dreamed up this shoot with Travis Richardson and Jann Marie. I painted the backdrop a soft shade of blush, and pinned vibrant green leaves to the backdrop to offset the sweetness. I focused on deeper pinks for the florals and gold ribbon to compliment the pink tones. This dress by Jann was so stunning! It had such beautiful movement, and it was modern and timeless all at once!

My beautiful partner in crime, Brenna was the model for this shoot! She is so stunning, her hair is incredible! Always such a pleasure working with D’Arcy and getting the photos back, always so dreamy and beautiful. D’Arcy went and collected all of the blossoms for this shoot by knocking on strangers doors and asking if she could clip blossoms from their trees! She has more guts than I have!  MUAH artist, ,

Geraldine_Editorial-36I absolutely loved the opportunity to get to fly to Santa Barbara and contribute the florals to this shoot for the beautiful publication, Geraldine Magazine. They have such a beautiful and strong vision and I felt honored to be a part of their second issue. This had to be my favorite order of all time. I loved getting to work with deep and soft purples during the spring months when all of the beautiful textural blooms are in season. You can pick up Geraldine Magazine online at Barnes and Noble or Anthropologie.

Laurel and Taylor live in London and wanted to have an english garden feel to their wedding. To achieve that feel we used mossed terra cotta vessels for the arrangements and lots of english roses. I also used small potted herbs to add to the centerpieces for extra interest.

I always love working at The St. Regis in Deer Valley, it’s one of my favorite venues. The scenery is beautiful and the staff is excellent. Excited to have a few more there this year!

This wedding was featured in the UK Brides Magazine! I hope to get my hands on a copy soon!
