Spring Sampling

Maggie Louise bridal boutique in Memphis, TN hosted a designer trunk show for a rising star designer named Olia Zavozina. Social Graces invited us to come create a high end sampling of floral designs for all of the brides eagerly awaiting to try on the dresses. We adorned the store with a little bit of everything from large urns filled with Olive branch to precious boutonnieres to touch. The wooden table and rentals from Mahaffey and Prop Cellar were decorated with all of our favorite offerings such as hand poured candles and spring fruit. The favorites were the enormous Japanese ranunculus that stole the spotlight in every arrangement and even took center stage on the feminine and demure cake design by our favorite Laura Jackson of The Flour Garden. The day was a huge success for brides who purchased designer gowns and got to have private consultations with the same woman who created them, who also happens to dress celebrities for the red carpet!

Between the first sign of Spring dogwood flowers, happy brides holding bouquets and posing for photos with family, and champagne popping there were nothing but moments of joy shared all around the room.

Tasha {A Bridal Shower}

When a wedding shower is given by a photographer you know every detail is going to be lovely, especially if it’s a bridal shower by a wedding photographer. Annabella Charles is the reason I know Tasha, the bride-to-be, and she is such a warm and devout person. We will be doing her wedding next month so stay tuned for more pretty photos of beautiful Tasha and her handsome future husband! The watercolor cake and  cookies were created by The Flour Garden and they taste as amazing as they look! We put a little sparkle in this wedding with glittered flower stands and vases. Martha Stewart glitter comes in all of the perfect watercolors we needed to pull this one off. Style Me Pretty agreed and published it today!

It was a wonderful day.

Earthly Heirlooms {Magnolia Rouge Issue 3}

We absolutely love getting creative when it comes to the themes of Magnolia Rouge Magazine. Working with Annabella Charles Photography and Everbloom Designs we designed an entire vignette around the heirlooms that are gifts from the Earth to be transformed into treasures for generations to enjoy. Whether made of wood, clay, cotton, charcoal, or seeds that grow flowers and food year after year, these blessings are not too small to be forgotten. We are so proud to be a part of the talent in this magazine spans the globe!

{ I would like to also mention that the charcoal sketch was done by the talented Annaliese Davidson, a budding artist.}
