Boho Chic

Bohemian. Boho. Organic. Freshly picked. We love it all! There is something about that messy perfect look that captures our hearts. Today’s Bride no longer strives for that perfectly round bouquet. The wilder the better,and we couldn’t agree more. Does it mess with our heads during the creating process? 100%!  Well thankfully San Diego Style Weddings liked our what they saw, and hand-picked our styled photo shoot for their January cover. Pretty AMAZING! The fabulous Temecula Creek Inn provided us the perfect backdrop. Here’s a collection of our favorite shots.

Antique Love Photo Shoot!!

During the summer, we had the opportunity to put together a fabulous photo shoot with some wonderful professionals, Studio Carre’ photography and Cynthia Zatkins Events. Our theme was antique love and this is what we came up with. Our spread in San Diego Style Weddings Magazine wasn’t able to show all the lovely details that went into this, so here we are to re-examine them for your viewing pleasure, ENJOY!

Marisa and I knew we wanted something to create a more dramatic effect while still maintaining the romantic feel of the shoot. We came up with this structure built of birch branches, covered it with curly willow, passion vines, hanging crystals and pearls. We also found these fantastic hanging votives and filled them with our theme flowers.

 It was all set and ready to shoot, until we all noticed this empty “hole” in the center of the hanging décor/votives. Michelle on site with no tools, minimal supplies “MacGyver’s” this little a bird nest, flower ball, gem. I think it might be my favorite part!

We used rope to tie the birch branches together and also used it to hang the structure from the tree. La Jolla Women’s Club let us use their location and if you haven’t been there, I highly recommend it. Their gardens are just beautiful!!

Peonies, garden roses, mint leaves, hydrangea, mokara orchids and budlia were just a few of the beauties we incorporated.

We used bud vases, mercury glass, a terrarium and antique candle holders to add to the theme. Each filled with something special! Lavender, succulents, curly willow the list goes on and on!

 Our colors were melon and cornflower blue. Its hard to find blue flowers that will work with you, not against you. And thankfully, we found this gorgeous hyacinth! It was just the right touch to bind all the textures and colors together.

 For the special bride and groom, flowers were added to decorate their chairs. Ribbon and lace were used to tie on the beautiful florals and passion vine.
