a rainy day photo shoot

well i am sitting at the dallas-fort worth airport waiting for my flight back to orange county but i heard it's raining in california so i thought this post would be appropriate today!

a couple weeks ago, jesi haack and aaron shintaku wanted to do a bridal photo shoot...in the RAIN!! so when jesi explained to me her vision and asked me to do a bouquet i thought it sounded so cool! colorful raincoats + wellies, polka dot umbrellas and striped ties over plastic parkas...all in the pouring down rain...sweet!

aaron did such a fab job with the photos and jen from green wedding shoes even featured this shoot on her blog last week! thanks guys! when i saw these photos, all i could do was smile...sunshine is overrated!! :)







i was in the middle of an insanely busy week so i actually ended up creating the bouquets entirely out of some gray eucalyptus pods i had leftover from an event...i thought they looked like little raindrops, both in their shape and the way they droop and "fall"...i tied them up with some ruffled cream fabric and ivory yarn...
