a vintage + rustic fashion shoot

so it has taken me forever to go through the images from the photo shoot i did with stephanie williams...but i swear, i have a good excuse!  there were SO MANY phenomenal shots to choose from...i am not kidding people...this girl is one talented human being!  just see for yourself...









bouquet of dark burgundy dahlias and wine colored begonia leaves...




lavender ranunculas and purple anemones finished in a rustic off white muslin...




a bouquet of solid wheat wrapped in chocolate lace...



green ranunculas, chartreuse brazillia berries and this other funky green stuff i can't remember the name of (oops!) finished in espresso velvet...


green umbrella fern, lotus pods, variegated begonia leaves and silver brunia...


a pale green succulent finished with a touch of cream reindeer moss makes a super simple boutonniere...

sherbert colored ranunculas in tones of peach, lemon, pale pink and coral, wrapped in a really killer pleated ribbon i found in the garment district...





just a couple more of my favorite shots of the day...oh-so-vintage glam!!
 
i had so much fun designing the florals for this shoot!  thanks again to all the amazing vendors who worked so hard to pull this off!
