Stunning Red and White Bouquet for a Military Couple

One of my brides had originally ordered a bouquet for herself, her bridesmaids and boutonnieres for the guys, however, her fiance is in the military and his orders got pulled in for deployment so instead of a larger October wedding, they were having a small wedding with their families this coming month. 
Shannon wanted vivid red poppies to honor the veterans as they both come from a long line of military. We agreed on vivid red poppies, red ranunculus, hipericum berries and gardenias. I love how dramatic this bouquet looks.

 My best wishes to Shannon and her fiance and we thank you for your service!

Etsy Love - Featured Artist & Vintage Inspired Shoot in the Summer/Fall Eco-Beautiful Weddings E-Zine!

I wanted to share with you a featured article in the Summer/Fall 2012 Issue of Eco-Beautiful Weddings E-Zine that launched today. I'm so fortunate to be able to work with such talented local professionals who were kind enough to ask me to be part of this Vintage inspired bridal shoot that emphasizes eco-friendly and recycled and upcycled pieces. Katie had asked me to be part of her inaugural issue and asked me if I would like to be part of their Etsy Love feature article this time around.
You HAVE TO read this issue, so much WONDERFUL eye candy, the latest in eco-friendly picks from accessories to make up and dresses from their staff, beautiful real wedding images and stories. Their bridal shoot with handpainted backdrops by Kristy Rice are just AMAZING! Katie always manages to bring together the best of the best when her team produces these lovely E-zines!
Thank you to Joli de Jackie (MUA/Hair), Vivian Sachs Photography, Monika Ka (Model), Viet Mac (Cinematographer), Karla Randolph (Printed Details), Monica Hernandez (Stylist), Songi Gi (Bridal Gowns) for creating the magic for this fun shoot. Links to each of their websites are in the magazine on pages 44-47. I'll definitely be sharing more photos from this shoot once I get a chance to breathe from catching up on my summer orders.
Thank you most of all to Katie Martin and her team at Eco-Beautiful Weddings!
