Style Me Pretty Feature | Dana + Ben

We're honored to have a front page feature today on Style Me Pretty!  Check it out here.

There are so many things we love about this wedding  First of all, we love any and every opportunity to work with the most talented and kind Jacob of Brumley & Wells.  Jacob started our love affair with film and we're not looking back...these photos continue to prove our point.  Whenever we get photos back from Brumley & Wells, we stop whatever we are doing, crowd around my computer screen and squeal, cry, and have other excessive reactions...

We also loooooooved working within this color palette.  Dana came to us with such awesome personal style and a desire for A LOT of color and texture, both qualities which made her a perfect-match-of-a-client.  I love this wedding because it isn't confined to just two colors and an accent color.  It's vibrant and bold and alive and just so good.

Lastly, our girl Bethany of Maeve & Peach did the most gorgeous pink hand calligraphy on Dana's invitation envelopes and we just died.  I mean, pink calligraphy?  It's too good.

Love Blooms | Valentine's Day | Style Me Pretty Feature

Happy Valentine's Day!  We are so excited to share this romantic, Valentine's Day-inspired shoot with you. I won't give too much away, because the photography definitely tells the story more eloquently than I write, but I do have to say this:  As a happily married wife, I can say with my whole heart, that there is nothing better than love expressed in a committed, lifetime relationship between a husband and wife.  Contrary to popular cultural belief, commitment isn't boring at all.  The kind of relationship that is a result of this kind of safety and intimacy is sacred, romantic, and beautiful.  Being a part of this shoot was special on a number of levels (I mean what florist doesn't want to fill a bathtub with garden roses?!), but it also touched my heart because it so beautifully displayed a truth I so fully believe.

On another note, I can't express to you how flawlessly this team of wedding vendors worked together.  We spent the whole day getting to know each other better, drooling over the design of this house, laughing and collaborating, and genuinely enjoying each moment.  I would highly recommend any one of these talented ladies.  To see more, check our our feature on Style Me Pretty.

Style Me Pretty Feature | Cori Cook + Audrey Hannah Photo

Today is a good day!  It's the day I get to show my readers one of our most unique Cori Cook Floral Design weddings of the season.  AND...it happens to also featured on Style Me Pretty today!  Click here to see the feature!  It is always an honor to be featured on Style Me Pretty as it is one of the premier resources in the country for wedding planning and inspiration.  If you are planning on getting married anytime soon and need some ideas, you should definitely get to know it.

I knew I wanted to work with Stephanie from our initial consultation.  Her ideas were so unique, fun, and well-coordinated.  I love a themed event, so this one was right up our alley.  

We incorporated her subtle bird theme into her floral arrangements by using twisted curly willow in all her arrangements.  For her bridesmaid bouquets, we twisted "nests" of curly willow and used interesting, textural florals with highly saturated greens to "pop" against the neutral dresses.  And it worked.  

We also collaborated on her centerpieces and I love how they turned out.  Stephanie designed large sqaures of patterned fabric that set the stage for a unique mix of cracked pot arrangements, apothecary jars, bells jars, mercury glass votives, and a block-font table number sat on.  Each centerpiece was a different variation of this mix.  Bell jars held nests with robin's eggs and moss.  

Audrey Hannah Photo photographed the wedding and did a stellar job as usual.  I adore her work, but always appreciate her ability to pose the perfect shot and capture details beautifully.  Check out her blog post on the same wedding here.  

Enjoy this lovely wedding and please leave a comment!

The Bridal Bouquet was a rounded, hand-tied bouquet of white ranunculus with a twisted curly willow wreath and star of Bethlehem border.

Bridesmaid Bouquets were hand-tied bouquets of twisted curly willow wreaths, green hydrangea, green roses, scabiosa pods, white scabiosa flowers, green hypericum berries, white veronica, green cymbidium orchids, and green hanging amaranthus.  We hand-tied their bouquets in strips of patterned fabrics.  

The Groomsmen Boutonnieres were made of the eye of a peacock feather, twisted curly willow pieces, and green cymbidium orchids.  

The Groom's Boutonniere was made of white ranunculus, star of bethlehem, and twisted curly willow pieces to match the bridal bouquet.  

For Stephanie's Aisle, we used an eclectic mix of mismatched bird cages and a mixture of large and tall cracked Anthropologie pot arrangements.  I loved how it turned out.  Best of all, we were able to re-purpose all the arrangements after the ceremony to be centerpieces.  

Best response to a Groom seeing his Bride...EVER!

Escort Cards were lined up on a vintage door with ribbon clotheslines running across.
