Early June I was invited to create florals for an Industrial Couture Styled Shoot at The Goat Farm in Atlanta, GA. The color scheme of the photo shoot was gold, copper, and turquoise which inspired me to use rich tones of burgundy, wine, and gold. I also decided to use a mix of traditional flowers such as fluffy Mme Claude Tain peonies and quicksand roses against bold earthy and textural florals such as blackberry scabiosa, variegated cobra lilies, combo roses (which opened so beautifully), and yellow kangaroo paw. I also incorporated Chocolate Queen Anne's Lace, Sweet Pea, Dark Pink Rosea Astrantia, and Bonsai Eucalyptus to add an airiness to the bouquets and centerpiece. It was also my first time using Cafe Latte roses which I just loved as well as Mossy Branch which helped make the centerpiece more dramatic with its earthy, linear features.
This photo shoot directed by Blair Blush Weddings focused on bold couture in an industrial space. The purpose of the styled shoot was to showcase the offerings of selected vendors to prospective clients while targeting the sort of women who follows fashion blogs, adores Vogue, and keeps up with the latest trends. They aren't your ordinary brides as they admire unconventional glamour.
The best thing about this styled shoot is that it was recently published in Ultimate Wedding Magazine! Special thanks to Blair and Stephanie from Carolyn A. Events for selecting me as their floral designer and Lindsey Avers, who helped me with the floral installations for the styled shoot that day.
