Nothing says spring like lemon yellow! It reminds me of daffodils and Easter bonnets, fuzzy chicks and lemon tarts. I look awful in yellow. Sigh. I LOVE it though! So perfect for a lovely spring wedding. How perfect to use actual lemons in centerpieces or at place settings. Lemon Love. Do you love it?
I love this song by Dave Mathews. In My humble opinion, his voice is swoon worthy. In my wedding vision the Groom plays this on his acoustic guitar, singing to his bride as she walks down the aisle. I know. I'm a complete romantic sap which is why I'm a floral designer! Hope you like it.
Feels Like Fall: Fashion Shoot with Red Leaf Studios
Wednesday, July 8, 2009
Something about today made me feel like Fall. Maybe it was the sweater I had to put on because of the clouds and light drizzle. Maybe it was how I was craving hot chocolate all day even though it is only July. Perhaps, it felt like Fall because when I went into my local craft store to buy more ribbon for my wedding this weekend, they had the Halloween ribbon on display with skulls, crossbones, ghouls and witches. So here I am drinking hot chocolate thinking about Autumn weddings...... Then I came across this fashion shoot by Red Leaf Studios based out of Regina. I love their photography! I thought it had decidedly an Autumn air about it. Also, it featured a vintage typewriter.Hello! I love props in photography! I also thought the model's attire suited a Vintage,Goth, Rocker Chic kind of Autumn wedding.You know, the kind of wedding featuring skeletons in bridal attire as cake toppers! The Corpse Bride! I've never met a bride who wanted to wear black but I'm sure they are out there. I must say, I love the heavy handed black eye liner and hair fascinator. I have been known to rock this look back in the day! I love birch trees. Trees in general used in wedding photography creates such interesting texture. I also love vintage suitcases. Do you think she's planning to run away? From "The Corpse Bride" to "The Runaway Bride"!! We still have a few spots available for Fall weddings so give us a call to set up a complimentary consultation. We won't turn you away if you want to wear black. Thank-you to Red Leaf Studios for their photography inspiration for the day....now back to my hot chocolate.
Time to get you thinking about Fall weddings. I love Autumn weddings. I love how it is still sunny but the air has a crisp,cool feel to it.I love how my apple trees bare so much fruit I have to knock on all my neighbor's doors begging them to take some. We eat a lot of apple crisp in the fall and my daughter makes apple sauce in old spaghetti sauce jars with handmade labels. The trees are dressed in their coats of many colors and every flower shop has bunches and bunches of dahlia. I always search for the largest showiest bloom to display. My birthday falls in Autumn and I always manage to draw out the celebrations for at least two weeks; all though, I always try to push it for a month. No one buys into it though. Sigh.Maybe this year! I love the colors available to us in Autumn. The oranges, golds and burgundies. Just yummy. Kim Kalyn Photography took the professional shots and yours truly took the floral detail shots. For this wedding that took place last fall I made altar pieces in giant pumpkins. They were so heavy! There is nothing I love more than pumpkin patches! That's not entirely true. I love my kids, lavender fields,wildflower meadows, weddings, babies of all kinds, dancing barefoot, good music and certain kinds of cheesecake! But I do love pumpkin patches a lot! This is not a personal ad because I have not mentioned long walks on the beach!!! Another thing I love about Autumn is the color hydrangea turns and all the different grasses and cat tails that become available to floral designers. I love those almost black dahlia and black baccarra roses. So rich and deep. Here's a box of all those apples I was talking about. Look at the fabulous physallis (Chinese lanterns) in this bouquet....another item I love that comes available in fall. If you are planning a fall wedding, book a complimentary consultation with us soon. We still have a few dates available for September and October but they are going, going, gone! If you book with us you'll probably get a wedding present of some gift wrapped apples! Please. Please take them.I'll even give you my top secret apple crisp recipe to impress your groom with! I love Fall weddings!
