Herbarium Wedding Shoot on Utterly Engaged...

Here is the photo shoot I styled for dreamy photographer Ali Harper back in March. I wanted to create something completely simple and achievable for brides who'd rather have an intimate dinner party with food and flowers from their backyard. Unfussy and undone. This is something any gal can achieve with a little help from friends. Let wine, good food, and warm conversations fill in the spaces. No need for bells and whistles.

Infused water sampler in lieu of fancy liquor drinks

Backyard and roadside herbs and flowers are my favorite.. Feverfew, Jasmine, Violets, Buttercups, Red Clover, and Queen Anne's Lace to name a few. 

Moss twine is one of my new favorite things. I can use it for everything. And that rosemary garland is just  too easy to make!

Heart-shaped brie!



Terrarium favors for guests are also a breeze to make and won't even come close to breaking the bank!

For more photos pop on over to Utterly Engaged's Organic Love issue! The whole magazine is filled with fantastic imagery from start to finish.

Such pretty photos. I like the little circles? pebbles? of moss in front of the glasses.
Really nice job.
