In Action: Trouvaille Workshop Blooms

Rhi from Hey Gorgeous Events contacted us a few months ago about creating custom blooms for her Trouvaille Workshop participates. I created these blooms in pairs, so every bloom has a match. All workshop attendees received an invitation package that included a stunning invitation and a p+h bloom.  I'm not much for words, so I will let the pictures speak!

In Action : P&H Spring 2013 - Everyday Accessories


Once or twice a year we team up with the super talented Amy Carroll Photography. As you all know, Amy is my go-to girl for p&h photography. This year I wanted to focus more on everyday wear. To be honest... until recently, I did not wear my accessories often enough. I'm a pretty causal person who has perfected the art of the pony tail. So... I wanted to created something that I would wear. A no fuss hair accessory that can be worn over unwashed bed head. In addition to that, I've been dying to create a floral crown. On the the shoot...

We worked with a extremely talented team... The lovely models were - Blair, Ashley and Lexie from Mathew Agency . KL from Cheeky Strutt rocked out the hair and makeup.

The icing on the cake?!? Michelle Tippmann from Proper Makes was there to capture an AMAZING behinds the scenes video!


 



You can purchase most of these pieces in our shop!

IN ACTION: A Charming boutonnière

We created this ultra custom bout for Carrie & Ben's NOLA wedding!
 

We use hand painted vintage love themed sheet music to create leaves and combined them with cotton, lace, tallow berries, twigs and a few feathers. The stem was wrapped in a coordinating gray yarn, We are quite please with the results!

Little Black Dress Bridal Shower

 
Back when I had dinner and drinks with Amy (from Amy Carroll Photography) and Rhi (Hey Gorgeous Events) I would have never imagined that a little girls night fun chat would result in this spectacular shoot! 

Rhi did a mega amount of work on this shoot - from concept - execution - amazing DIY's and all the flowers. Yes, Rhi is a superstar genius.

Amy captured everything perfectly. Every detail, every moment.

I'm only going to preview a few photos highlighting p&h here, I HIGHLY suggest reading the recaps and full photo posts on Amy Carroll Photography and Hey Gorgeous Events.

This shoot was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes!



We plan on adding a few of these custom flowers to the shop in the coming weeks. If you see something you like please don't hesitate to contact us directly!

In Action: Snow White

A Snow White inspired wedding?!?! Be still my heart.

We had the opportunity to create a hair piece inspired by Snow White. We chose to create a huge red silk bow to play off Snow Whites traditional small red hair bow. The center was encrusted with many vintage sparkly buttons. Thrilled to see this come together!




Big thanks for April Foster Events for this opportunity to us and to SB Childs Photography for beautiful images! DO NOT MISS this shoot in its entirety on Elizabeth Anne Designs.

In Action: Bridesmaids Bows

Nicole (a talented artist!) contacted me via etsy for custom blue bows for her bridesmaids. Well, I'm a sucker for tasteful hair bows so I was super excited for this custom order.

Meet Nicole, Ben and their adorable bridesmaids!

 
 

Big thanks to Nicole and Ben for sharing these! All these lovely photo credits belong to: this is a love
