French Navy and Gold: Southern Bride Magazine

One of the ways I knew I truly wanted to be a florist is when I still bought wedding magazines after we got married. Photo shoots are one of my favorite parts of being a floral designer. I love being able to create flowers that are unconventional and inspirational to brides and fellow bridal mag-a-holics like myself.

This season's cultural theme for Southern Bride was the reason our team chose the beautiful mid town antique gallery Palladio as the backdrop to a French Fantasy table.
The best part about having a group of vendors you trust is that all of the good ideas are incorporated. A good example is Jaime, Michelle, and Addie from Social Butterflies, who keep up with the latest in rental and linen trends. I learned so much about the gold cap on the table! I had never seen it before the shoot.
As always, Annabella Brandon from Annabella Charles Photography translated our setting into a feast for the eyes. I really tried to think 'inside the box' by making a majority of the floral items in a square shape to mimic the square table. I also created my first broach mini bouquet. Those broaches are addicting ladies!
So without further adieu, here are the faves and details from our ode to the Gold of Versailles France.
I hope you agree when I say, "C'est ce bon!".
