Ethereal Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Every inspired photoshoot has a special place in our hearts, but this modern ethereal inspiration shoot – the brainchild of Kristen Weaver Photography interns Lexie and Rachael – really was special! The interns opted for natural elements and mixed metals, producing the most unique, truly ethereal design.

Of course, the natural woods, stones, and mixed metals throughout the decor had to be offset somehow, and greenery turned  out to be the perfect complement! We included a wonderful selection of assorted greenery throughout the décor, with Italian ruscus, variegated Italian pitt, and with seeded, silver dollar and baby blue eucalyptus throughout.

Our models looked wonderful! Our bride dressed in a flowing Sarah Seven dress from Calvet Couture Bridal, and donned a gold headpiece in her long hair. She carried a specially-crafted greenery bouquet, dressed out in a gold modern metal geometric orb, accented with succulent blooms for some texture.

Meanwhile, our groom looked super stylish in a rich velvet blazer and bowtie, with a seeded eucalyptus, baby blue eucalyptus, and Italian ruscus foliage boutonniere. The soft, elegant contrasted so well with the industrial look of the decor!

Every detail of this modern ethereal inspiration shoot was eye-catching, with each unique design element coming together beautifully. Everything was intentionally mismatched, yet it all fit together perfectly to create the most natural bohemian look. We’re so proud of Lexie and Rachael; Kristen Weaver is fortunate to have such wonderful interns, and we can’t wait for their next photoshoot from this talented team!

Stetson Mansion: A Victorian Fairytale Styled Shoot

Last summer, we had the pleasure of being a part of another styled wedding shoot at The Stetson Mansion. This time, we stepped into a more magical Victorian era, where fairytales surely came true. The stunning architecture and quiet elegance of the mansion shone through in the photographs, courtesy of the talented Andi Mans Photography.

We wanted to enhance the magical feel of the theme, so we chose bright shades of pinks, purples, oranges, yellows and blues for our floral arrangements. A princess bride deserves the very best, from the beautiful gown from Solutions BridalRivini, to her classical hair piece by Untamed Petals, and that is precisely what was delivered.

The old-world ambiance not only inspired our floral spread, but also the gorgeous stained glass cake by Bliss Pastry. To complement the cake, Le Macaron French Pastries provided scrumptious macaroons in vibrant shades that matched our floral designs perfectly.

On the lawn of the mansion, Wish Vintage Rentals styled a whimsical vignette that flowed with the style on the mansion. Our bright bouquets added a pop of color to the setting, bringing the dream of a Victorian fairytale to life.

“Sweet as Tea” Southern wedding inspiration

 

At the beginning of this year, we were honored to be a part of a lovely styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The shoot was dubbed “Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be” and followed a theme of Southern glam. We showcased some stunning floral arrangements that we created for the theme, from bouquets to centerpieces, all designed to look as if they had been gathered from a Southern garden. We’re happy to share some of our favorite photos by Bumby Photography.

Our model bride and bride’s maid carried bouquets full of buttery yellow, soft pink, creamy white and pastel green floral. We combined a mix of traditionally glamorous flowers, like roses and tulips, with more casual textures. The arrangement of the bouquets had a somewhat gathered look, but they looked dressed up by wrapping the stems with lacy fabric. Our model groom had a coordinating boutonniere of yellow tulip buds and billy buttons.

In the ballroom, our reception decor was opulent. We were so happy to get our hands on Southern smilax, which we mixed with magnolia greenery to cascade down the white candelabras. At the base of the candelabras, we placed smaller arrangements that included hydrangea and garden roses.

We decorated the buffet, full of delicious Southern bites with a modern edge by Arthur’s Catering, and the cake table, with a gorgeous lace and ruffled cake by Cut the Cake, with small casual bouquets in milk glass vases. Later in the day, we even set up a table outside to showcase the venue’s stunning views of the lake.

Stetson Mansion: Zen Garden Styled Shoot

We were recently a part of a gorgeous photo shoot at Stetson Mansion in the peaceful Zen Garden. Andi Mans, of Andi Mans Photography, conceived of the design and helped put together all of the gorgeous details for this unique wedding look.

We created centerpieces full of vibrant greens and yellow, without using typical floral choices. Instead, we selected succulents and pods and ferns for a look that is very close to nature. Our arrangements popped against the rich purple table linens. With touches of gold and turquoise in the accessories and a variety of vintage pieces, the look was cultured and eclectic.

Our bride was dressed in a glamorous gown by Jenny Packham, complete with delicate beading. Her makeup and hair by Makeover Station was youthful and easy-going, with a pop of orange on her lips. Our hand-wrapped bouquet mimicked the centerpieces with the addition of green calla lilies.

Amazing details were added by Two Sweets Bake Shop‘s dessert buffet and hand-drawn invitations by Lana’s Shop. For the dessert buffet, we made an earthy, sculptural arrangement that tied in all of the plants and flowers that we used throughout the rest of the shoot. The sweet and nutty treats brought great colors and textures for the finishing touch to this beautiful wedding shoot.

Out of Africa | Floral Photoshoot: Concept Photography

Imprint cinema, lee james floral, concept photography 2

Ever wondered what it’s like to be on an African safari? We bet it would feel something like this, except a bit hotter and more dangerous. We paired up with Concept Photography and Imprint Cinema at a private location, to create a safari wedding!

Imprint cinema, lee james floral, concept photography 5

The color scheme was orange, yellow, and gold with animal print accents. The outdoor long-grass fields of the location made the safari feeling come alive as did our orange and yellow flowers! We hope this trend will catch on because it’s a lot of fun and totally different from the modern and vintage trends we’ve seen recently!
