When I was asked to contribute to an inspiration shoot for well wed Magazine I was excited, honored and honestly terrified. Well Wed is a stunning publication and I have been a fan for years. When they reached out to the Maine and New Hampshire Market, I was excited to join the amazing team of Maine vendors to showcase our beautiful state.
This vision was given with a cluster of photos for inspiration similar to this:
So this is my layout. My thoughts were this: I love orange, and fall screams to me certain flowers: dahlias, pincushion protea, scabiosa pods. I wanted texture and depth in my flowers. So I added a deep plum to make the orange pop even more. I choose plum callas and thistles to add a richness to the orange roses, dahlias, pincushions and orchids. The blues I wanted to pull out through the ribbon and vessels. I LOVE auctions and got the vase from an estate sale. It is an asian inspired piece that popped beautifully with all the orange flowers.
The design elements was inspired by my husband. I took my husband’s grandfather’s books, and trunks. I wanted to create a more masculine look for the shoot. That is how I made the boutonniere, no ribbon just a simple honeycomb dahlia pinned to the jacket.
The boutonniere was model by the photographer’s Anne Schmidt’s handsome husband Josh…
This was such a fun day! Thanks to Anne Schmidt Photography for the great photos…so much fun… wait until you see next edition’s shoot
