French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography
Last month, I was so excited to design the flowers for Hope Taylor Photography's workshop styled shoot, with some of my favorite vendor friends (who also happen to be my friends in real life!!) It was SUCH a fun couple of days, filled with lots of laughter, hugs and hard work, and I love the way this French Blue Southern Wedding editorial came together for the workshop! I don't typically get to design with a blue color palette, so I was really excited to challenge myself and work to bring out more blue hues in the flowers, and those anemones with the dark navy centers were the stars of the show!! Using light and dark blue shades brought out a more dramatic contrast in the flowers, and I also hand-dyed the silk runner/draping piece for the arch, and the silk ribbon streamers in coordinating colors to match the shoot aesthetic! I love being able to design flowers for shoots for my photographer friends workshops, because the styled shoots always have such a great purpose behind them- teaching other wedding photographers how to take better photos and how to hone in on their photography skills! I also love designing flowers for these workshops because of the incredible vendors I am honored to work alongside!! :) Kat, of Dear Sweetheart Events did such an amazing job planning the shoot, and the neutral space within the Paisley & Jade warehouse in Richmond, Virginia was the perfect setting! Hope of course did an incredible job capturing all the details and teaching all of her lovely attendees, and I had the absolute best time hanging out with them for the day! I could go on and on about how the entire day was a dream, but I know you want to see the photos now, so enjoy!! Scroll to the bottom to see all the participating vendors!
