Farm Wedding 2011

I was so thrilled when approached by AE Martin Photography to help with the florals for a farm themed wedding photo shoot.  After working with her on a previous wedding at The Prado at Balboa Park, we both were instantly drawn to each others style and design.  As you will see, Anne Martins images are so so beautiful and lovely.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

This summertime themed shoot on a farm was inspired by the carefree days of summer and sweet romance with a vintage touch.   Inspiring a soft natural color palette and rustic textures for flowers. 

Bridal bouquet with pink blush roses, dusty miller, white dahlias, bay leaves, lavender, and amarathus hand-tied with ivory ribbon, pearls, and embellished with a vintage broach.
