This has got to be one of my favorite shoots ever! I knew that the views in this location were going to be the real star of the show, and I enjoyed creating something that would stand out, but not take away from this glorious backdrop.
When designing the flowers I wanted them to feel both earthy, and bridal. I knew the white roses would pop and be stunning on the red rock, and also felt appropriate for the formal wedding attire. I used subdued greens, and even foraged some local succulents to use in this bouquet. Then I wanted to bring in some of the red rock feel with the red-pink protea and the sunset alstroemeria. And lastly for a little dried dessert feel I added in some pampas grass and scabbiosa pods.
You want to know one of my favorite things about this shoot? Our gorgeous models got engaged just a few months after this...and have asked me to be the florist for their wedding! What a huge honor and pleasure it is for me to work with them! I can't wait to see more beautiful florals with these two!
