Woodland Anniversary Session : Bridal Bouquet

My lovely friend Lora Grady of Lora Grady Photography and her darling hubby Dan celebrated their anniversary with a rustic woodland photo shoot, captured by Alyssia B. Photography. I put together a coordinating bouquet of creamy white ranunculus and spray roses. The bouquet was romantic and lush with lots of green, like it had been recently gathered from the surrounding fields and trees. I love how the bouquet complimented the textures of their wardrobe: the lace in Lora’s dress, the leather shoes and belt, and the gray wool of Dan’s jacket. The result? Images that perfectly resonate Lora’s beauty, both inside and out!

Seattle Love : Seattle Wedding Planner

Moving to Seattle was never on my radar growing up. From upstate New York, it was distant land that mainly existed in Grey’s Anatomy episodes. But it’s kind of funny because the idea of the city has seemed to follow me throughout my life. In fifth grade we did a project on the fifty states. For some reason, I was drawn to Washington and chose to study Seattle and it’s surroundings. Little did my 10 year-old self know then, this city would become such a large part of who I am.

2014-03-04_0004I love it’s history and it’s sense of youth. This city makes you feel your big dreams are valid and attainable. There is this drive for the discovery of new things; things few others have yet to try or do. Yes, some would call this “hipster”, but I think it’s exciting.

This city is full of tiny corner shops and bustling market streets. It doesn’t rain quite as often as everyone says it does, and it’s home to an extraordinary set of active, creative people trying to make their mark.

This city has taught me that the world isn’t as large as we think it is, and with some hard work and the right people in your corner, anything is possible.

Simple & Pretty

Winter isn’t the best time for beautiful flowers, but I’m a firm believer in turning the everyday norm into something sweet. When spring fever came on strong a few weeks ago, a simple floral arrangement brightened the day. This whimsical bouquet of hearty hydrangeas and carnations was a refreshing break from the green and brown that is a Seattle winter. Normally I’m not a big fan of carnations, but their mini size and fresh peachy color reminded me a bit of spray roses (and yes, they came from the grocery store…gasp!). Hope this adds a bit of simple & pretty to your Monday afternoon.2014-03-10_0001 2014-03-10_0002 2014-03-10_0003 2014-03-10_0004Photos: Lora Grady
