Mary & Taylor's Flagstaff Wedding

This wedding is near and dear to my heart because the bride and I go waaaaayyyy back. I met Mary in elementary school and went to school with her through the end of high school. We were tight when we were youngsters and over the years grew in different directions but always remained friendly. I think there’s a magic of childhood friendships that just pick back up wherever you are in life. Mary and Taylor met in high school and created a life together in the years that followed. They have an incredibly sweet sort of love and it was an absolute honor to create their floral arrangements for their wedding.

Ritual Union Inspiration Shoot

Last year Jamie Allio reached out to us with a vision for different kind of wedding. See, we both share a love for couples who want to do weddings on their own terms. And whether that means having 500 of your friends and family wowed by a dreamy, classically wedding wedding or it means running away with your love and celebrating your romance unconventionally, we want to be a part of it.

So, in that spirit, here's Jamie's dream of a new sort of wedding day. A day where you and your love get ready together then slip away to the desert for an intimate and exciting elopement. A day that ends in a party with your closest friends all dressed to the nines. Let's take a break from the "should" of a wedding day and get lost in a fun, romantic fantasy.

Ana Karen & Justin's Desert Anniversary Photoshoot

Sometimes a quick hit of inspiration is so good for the soul. Today we're sharing a little photoshoot we got to be part of with the lovely Ana Karen and her husband, Justin. She wanted a dreamy bouquet and sent over photos of their outfits then set me free to create something magical. It feels so great to just play and I love the results.
