Holiday Brunch | Editorial

December 25, 2014

Story Line for our Holiday Brunch Editorial:  “Elegant woman holds a gorgeously decorated and delicious fall brunch with fellow friends. After her guests depart, she is left with half eaten pieces of pumpkin bars, blackberry cake, and peach pie, along with cinnamon tea and half a pot of hot chocolate. You find her stretched out on her luxurious velvet chair, taking a moment of relaxation while she reminisces about the fun-filled moments that happened just hours ago. She has a whole uneaten leftover pie and delightfully delivers it to her friendly neighbor down the street. Youʼll see her espresso-colored pup escorting her down the sidewalk wearing a floral collar, attached with an oversized velvet bow and leash.”

As Seen On: Inspired By This

Many thanks to this spectacular team of talented artists who made this all come together so beautifully:

“Floret + Wax” Summer Editorial | Inspiration

November 22, 2014

This summer project “Floret + Wax” was inspired from the Ozark boulders surrounding our quaint city. For so many weddings and events, we use the similar flowers and varieties, so with this project, I wanted to incorporate all the unique, funky, and abstract flowers and use them all together. My color palette was burnt orange, rich dark plum, and shades of green.  I created two very unique bouquets; one tall and thick, the other being wide and organic. Along with those, I designed an abstract floral crown, floral necklace (my favorite!), and floral ankle bracelets.  Thanks to Michael Dameron for coming alongside my with this project and for these incredible images!
