The Flower Lab had the pleasure of working with Sara of One Love Photography, a photographer extraordinaire. Sara was running a wedding photography workshop in Santa Monica and we helped out by providing a bridal bouquet and matching boutonniere.
The pictures are STUNNING!!! For the bouquet, I had free run of whatever I wanted to create. Sara just wanted me to have fun with the flowers, and I did indeed! I had just consulted with a couple earlier that month and became inspired by their floral decor. So for this photo shoot, I planned to make a very natural bouquet with lots of interesting leaves.
At the market that week, I saw that my favorite phalaenopsis orchid supplier had buckets of these awesome bicolor yellow and burgundy orchids. I let these orchids set the tone for the rest of the bouquet and included deep burgundy mini calla lilies, burgundy anemones, dark brown/burgundy succulents, and burgundy amaranthus. In addition to the flowers, sword ferns, variegated Italian pittosporum, and large branchy leaves filled out the bouquet.
|hope you enjoy these photographs taken by Sara and her students. I love how they found such unique settings around the beach and pier for these images. Ahh Santa Monica — isn’t it a wonderful environment for your wedding and engagement pictures???|
