Tuscany Inspired Bridal Shoot

On August 21st, I was privileged to be a part of Tuscany Inspired Bridal shoot put together by Brittney Livingston Photography and recently featured on Bayside Bride. I met Brittney via The Rising Tide Society, an amazing group that “educates and empowers creatives to thrive in the spirit of community over competition.” The venue for this shoot was at the beautiful Running Hare Vineyard, filled with rows of succulent grape vines, and gorgeous event space that sits on a hilltop.

For the bouquet pictured below, I used soft colors of peach and pinks mixed with greenery. Flowers used include pom dahlias, peach campanella roses, lisianthus, astilbe, romantic antike garden roses, and ranunculus. Greenery used were seeded and feather eucalyptus. I added a hint of variegated pittosporum in the flower crown.

I literarily had to stop myself from wearing the gorgeous gowns provided by Celia Grace – a fair trade and eco-friendly designer who gives back locally with each dress sold.

The gown pictured below – The Eleanor, paired perfectly with the cascading bouquet. This bouquet was heavy and smelled so good! Flowers used include – cafe au lait dahlias, peach campanella roses, lisianthus, astilbe, Juliet David Austin roses, and ranunculus and light pink peonies. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the flower market and found peonies in late August!! Greenery used include variegated pittosporum, seeded and feather eucalyptus.

Stunning jewelry by Alison Jefferies of J’Ardon Designs, another creative boss lady I met at a Tuesdays Together meet up hosted by The Rising Tide Society, added the perfect touch to our gorgeous model. Elegant curls and makeup done by Michelle Heffner and Delaney Burgess
