garden and wildflower themed florals

I had the wonderful opportunity of working with April from Bladh Photography on a fantastic shoot this week.  It was a very organic, vintage, styled shoot, so we used  a lot of wildflowers and flowers you'd find in the garden (I even snuck in some herbs from my herb garden!).  I can't wait to see April's pictures, which will not only be infinitely better than mine, but actually be from the shoot.  These are just a few I managed to snap on my own.  You'll get to see the full shoot soon - including beautiful vintage furniture pieces, mason jars filled with wildflowers hanging from trees,  a gorgeous couple, and lots of fun!

So enjoy these for now, and look forward to more coming soon!

I adore these little white vases.  I have a pair of them, and want to use them for everything!  Plus, they matched a vintage white porcelain pitcher we used in the shoot as well.

The bouquet - a very organic, wildflower look, hand tied with sage fabric, some bits of netting like you would find on a cage veil, and some twine.  We used daisies, peonies, garden roses, wild mustard, columbines, and several other garden flowers. 

Another shot of the bouquet - a pewter locket is tied on with twine around the stems.  Personal accents like brooches, lockets, keys, bits of lace from the bride's dress (or her mother's/grandmother's) are a great way to add a little something extra to a bouquet, or to tie in themes or other elements from the wedding.

Peonies, daisies, and some wildflowers fill one of many mason jars used to set the scene for the shoot.
