Rust, Blush and Cream Katelyn James Photography Workshop Shoot

Rust, Blush and Cream Katelyn James Photography Workshop Shoot

Last year, I was so honored and excited to design the flowers for Katelyn James Photography’s workshop styled shoot in Richmond, alongside some of my favorite wedding vendors!! I love the way this rust, blush and cream fall wedding inspiration came together for the workshop- I was so excited about the “flower towers” we used for the ceremony space, and the beautiful tablescape full of lots of gorgeous fall blooms!! For flowers, we used a variety of locally grown dahlias, garden roses, rust amaranthus, and ranunculus, as well as a variety of greens! The silk ribbons and silk table runner were also hand-dyed (by me), and it was fun coming up with the perfect shade of rust (I especially love the way the runner is styled on this table!) Being able to design flowers for shoots for my photographer friends workshops is always so fun, 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! They are also full of beautiful details, and I am always blown away by the thoughtfulness and talent of each of the participants and the photography workshop attendees too! Kat, of Dear Sweetheart Events did such an amazing job planning the shoot, and the other vendors we collaborated with were all incredible!! Katelyn 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!

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

Last month, I was so excited to design the flowers for Hope Taylor Photography'sworkshop 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!!

My New Headshots!

I recently had the pleasure of receiving some updated headshots, taken by my good friend Erika Lynn Photography at the Capitol Building, here in Richmond, Virginia! I have used them on my social media sites, website, and business branding materials, and I love the refreshed look it brings to my business! It's important to try and stay consistent with the photos you use to represent your brand, and I'm so thankful to Erika for taking these for CIE!!
