A Sedona Fairytale

This styled shoot is what dreams are made of! I’m so grateful that Kristin Hollist contacted us to be a part. It was so lovely meeting and collaborating on her vision for this shoot.

Kristin’s vision was for a lush bouquet of neutral tones and greenery and a simple flower crown. Quicksand roses with their blush/beige tones were the perfect flower, accented by Pink Ice Protea, blush stock, seeded eucalyptus and pieris japonica, with some light and airy bunny tail added the best texture.

I can’t stop staring a the results! One of my very favorite bouquets.

Arizona Weddings Magazine Feature

We’re so excited to be featured on Arizona Weddings Magazine blog, with the flowers we did this fall at the Wigwam. We were invited to participate in this Spanish inspired dream by Yohanna Wendt of Yohanna Wendt Photography. From the venue to the vendor team, I (Michelle) had such a lovely experience all around. Meeting Paige of Front Paige Events was a highlight, she’s so easy to work with, funny, knowledgeable and talented! Yohanna’s vision and her artistic eye inspired the floral arrangements, and she is truly a delight to work with!

This was a real highlight of 2018! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the shoot, for more check out our gallery.
