Belle Isle Editorial Shoot

Working with flowers outside of events feels fundamental to me. My very favorite season is early spring with it’s flowering branches and delicate blooms. I personally gravitate toward cream and yellow colors but they are rarely palettes chosen by real brides so this collaboration was a special treat! This shoot, with KR Moreno and Sarah Rhodes-Boyce is one I am delighted to share!

Spring Floral Compilation

When Ciarra Claire calls to say she wants to shoot a few pieces of her new wedding paper line I find myself lucky enough to collaborate with an amazing bunch of creatives. With visionary direction by Rachel Moger of Sincerely Ginger Events, this is the second time we have done a shoot with Ciarra and photographer, Cory Weber, and both times have been such a great experiences. It was a blast to gather at Rachel’s studio, conspiring to create images that depict a fun and effortless vibe. When you have Emerson James tableware and La Tavola linens as a base, finding inspiring ways to combine seasonal florals and Ciarras paper was easy!

Autumnal Color Story

A visit from KR Moreno in the studio last autumn allowed me to embrace seasonal colors and textures I am in love with and the result were these fun flowers and images. The color story is one of ripening fruit, citrus and chartreuse tones mixed with crisp autumn air and blue skies. These combine into a palette I could live in forever!

Murray Mansion

There is nothing better than collaborating with amazing artists.  This past spring I had the pleasure of working with Jake Anderson Photography and Sarah Rhodes Boyce Weddings to create the perfect union of our styles and individual talents.  Murray Mansion was the ideal backdrop to our Scandinavian vibe and having Plume Calligraphy as part of our team was the ultimate high.  Featured on Wedding Sparrow, this color story was inspired by muted tones and types of flowers that are only available for a short window of time each spring.  The table is one we would all love to sit around while enjoying the company of friends.

Autumn at the DIA

This wedding is a personal favorite.  The Detroit Institute of Arts is such a beautiful venue.  Shot by Blaine Siesser this wedding decorated the Great Hall with so many floral favorites.  Seen here on Grey Likes Weddings seasonal garden roses mixed with rich foliage's made for a stunning combo filling guest tables to the brim!
