While I personally am a gal who has a love for color, especially well placed pops & splashes of, there truly is something to be said for gorgeous winter whites. Floral arrangements, be it those in your home or those for a winter wedding, run the gamete of the deeper darker color spectrum. While we are indeed reprieved from pastel colors, bold neon like hues and the like, sometimes the dark can be all a bit too much. I dont know if it is age or saturation, but I am certainly taking on a whole new appreciation for a more neutral palette of late. When I got to think about this, I reminded myself of a shoot I featured only a few short months ago, a gorgeous late fall session in a cabin in the woods that was wonderfully rustic chic. One of the elements that attracted me to the shoot right from the start were the amazing florals which are the very definition of winter whites!

Pretty in Pink, Gilded Gold, Lace, Lace & More Lace! The lake side wedding of Rachel & Phillip Jones was straight out of a romantic vintage dream with so many terrific little touches working in harmony to bring the day to life. Apothecary bottles, pearls, tea cups, and gold watches are just a few of the elements that helped shape the day. Tables were set in a 5 layer place setting of gorgeous gilded china complete with tea cups as all proper southern settings should! What romantic dream world would be complete without pink as the main color in the palette & flowers upon flowers surrounding everything! Rachel was a vision right out of the art deco era in her gorgeous floor length lace gown, pinned curls & jeweled hair piece, Gatsby Romance! It may sound like a funny thing, but perhaps my favorite part to it all are the wonderfully curmudgeon flower girls who are simply everything in their not feeling it faces especially in the portraits, adorable!! For those that love wonderfully girly & filled of romance, your going to swoon all over this one!

I have a pretty major female hard on these days for floral crowns. Floral crowns have a real regal feel to them without hitting you over the head with a royal crown. Naturally due to their floral nature,they have an easy breezy wonderful free spirited more hippie like feel to them right out of the gate as well. No matter how you slice it adding a floral crown is a gorgeous choice, lending itself to more fashion forward bridal looks. Today's Why It Works isnt so much a WHY it works but a gorgeous collections of floral crowns that all work for wonderfully unique reasons. Floral crowns come in an infinite number of sizes, shapes and designs all thanks to the endless combination of flowers & hues available allowing creativity to be limited only by one's imagination!

Gorgeous, girly and filled with greens, this inspiration session in the gardens of Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum is aces! Taking a cue for Midsummer Nights Dream, Branham Perceptions Photography & House of Flores worked to create a daytime world filled with romantic glam & classic elegance. Working with a palette of coral & ivory along with flexes of gold, the table in the gardens gives a rather found ethereal sense. Organic & lush, the table decor is hallmarked by a moss bed runner which is filled with viney twigs, pops of bright flowers in pinks & bright greens, perfectly positioned in nob glass mini vases & pewter cups. Gold twig flatware complete the garden touch, while elements like elegant gold rimmed plates with round menu & matching pink draped napkins greet the guest. The overall effect is that of a romantic wonderland among a lush earthy secret spot which certainly says secret garden to me!
