The One Where I Admit I'm Coming Around to Babies Breath

Wow. Here we are. It’s a momentous occasion, ya’ll.

If you’ve followed us for any sort of time, you know that there are very few flowers that I hate. In fact, there’s really just ONE if we’re being specific. And that one flower…. is babies breath.

STAY WITH ME HERE.

I’m a child of the 90’s. My perception of babies breath is one sad spring alongside a way-too-tight red rose in cellophane paper at my local Safeway. It sheds. It’s hard to tell when it’s alive and fresh because it kind of holds its shape when it dies. And when you use it in mass, it smells like old feet. True story.

SO, for the first few years of this company, I all but refused to use it. If clients requested babies breath, we gently swayed them in a different direction. If they DEMANDED IT (lol our clients are lovely and no one ever does this) we would use it but, ya know, on the DL.

Then, Mandy Moore got married. And that broad’s wedding was FULL of babies breath and pampas grass. AND GOD DAMNIT IT LOOKED SO COOL. So now, we’re inundated with babies breath requests. And after this shoot from the incredible mind of Molly Donovan, dare I say…. I sort of like babies breath now…

Frida Kahlo Inspired Wedding

This is a throwback but it’s one of our all-time favorite projects. I have long been a fan of Frida Kahlo and when I discovered the Eisendrath House, I knew I had the perfect location for a Frida Inspired shoot.

Our bride wore a custom gown from Cleo & Clementine. I love the simplicity of the dress which allows for the details to bring a lot of personality without feeling overwhelming. Minimal wedding gowns make my heart sing but make sure your splurge for one that is beautifully made. It’s the same as with food - if you have only a few ingredients you need to use the best of the best because each piece will shine through.

Speaking of beautifully tailored garments - can you believe these incredible suits from Magro Clothing? The team at Magro does incredible work and our grooms that work with them are always impeccably dressed.

One of my favorite aspects of this shoot is that all of the details were so BIG. In the wedding world, we often shy away from making a bold statement with prints/colors/details but this shoot proves that you don’t have to fear it.
