We love doing “out of the box” shoots! So when we were asked to design a  sexy boudoir themed bridal shower we were very excited! I had never seen a shoot quite like it. I was given creative freedom to come up with something elegant with a hint of sexy and went with pink satin linens with black lace overlays, black chandelier candelabras, gold mercury glass votives, gold chaivari chairs with black cushions, gold beaded glass chargers, black satin napkins with pink ribbon and pink duponi silk centerpiece vessels with a mix of flowers in pink hues.

A bridal bouquet is a very personal reflection of a brides style. The blossoms you select for your wedding day are rooted in rich cultural and historical traditions. In the recent issue of Ceremony Magazine we were thrilled that 9 of our favorite bouquets were featured. Traditionally the bride will hold the bouquet, and the maid of honor will hold it during the ceremony. After the wedding the bride will toss it over her shoulder, and it is believed that whoever catches the bouquet is the next in line to be married. This practice may be related to the Golden Apple of Discord myth.

We had a fantastic time stylizing this pure opulence shoot for Ceremony Magazine at the absolutely fabulous Balboa Bay Club with some of our favorite florals and decor! The white orchids and white roses used for our centerpieces really popped with our all white color scheme with slight touches of eggplant! One of my favorite things is the mercury glass candle holders that bring some texture and contrast to the table. We used the gorgeous chameleon chairs from Classic Party Rentals and the white satin crush linens with eggplant satin napkins from Linen Savvy. A huge thank you to the ladies of 2 Rings and a Dress for the stunning images!

We designed this “Under the Tuscan Sun” stylized photo shoot for Ceremony Magazine. So much fun working with Joel of Studio EMP, Taste Buds Cupcakes, Bella Collina, Classic Party Rentals,Ceremony Magazine’s Staff and of course Linen Savvy! This was a very fun and rustic color palate to work with. I loved the organic touches of burlap, twine and wheat in the table setting.

We love doing stylized shoots like this one we did for Ceremony Magazine! Being able to pair some of my favorite linens, florals, and glassware together is a floral designers dream! Thank you Joseph Guidi for the beautiful photos!
