Monochromatic Fleurs

 

I’ve been waiting  months but it’s finally time to share a styled shoot I was lucky enough to work on last year! Sherry Donnelly, from Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio, was inspired to create a monochromatic shoot stemming from her early days of designing.  She loved creating arrangements en masse until one day she was told it was “wrong”.  Her vision was ignited by the bold colors of magenta, olive green, and midnight blue  found in Silk & Willow ribbons.  She soon set out to create something more unexpected and an alternative to a mutli color palette.  With Jamie McPherson, of J. Elliot Style, who is a magnificent stylist by her side they brought her vision to life with ease and precision!

This was a treat to shoot and I was thrilled to be surrounded by such talented peeps!

The Knot: Sara Kate + Matt Real Wedding Feature

 

 

In the midst of January a little summer day dreaming is never a bad thing! Sara Kate and Matt’s wedding is now out in The Knot – and I took a trip down memory lane as I perused the pages.  This Atlanta couple got married in Seaside Florida- and I gladly made the trek with them towards the shore to celebrate!!

Thanks SO much to the Knot for the feature…and the two page spread of Sara Kate on the “blue” wall!!  I exaggerate the blue part because the wall is really a famous purple one—–but I liked blue better:) We’ll just say it’s magic- but we all know the truth!!!

oxoxoxo to all

ps. to peek at their full wedding post tag !!!!HERE!!!!
