Centerpiece by Primary Petals.  Bachelorette Cocktail Party Inspiration #primarypetals

We all know there are so many fun parts of celebrating your wedding, aside from the BIG DAY itself, so as soon as Gather Events shared their concept with us and invited us to collaborate, we were instantly on board.  Inspired by Cocktail Academy’s unique offering of craft cocktails lessons, this shoot shares a peek at a bride-to-be’s last call – a night of indulgent drinks and delicious bites with her best gals before the wedding! The scene, set with a color palette of indigo, blush, crimson, and gold (so unique) + wild florals, made for a luxurious, yet relaxed, atmosphere at Downtown LA’s Apartment A.  We are proud to say this shoot was featured on Green Wedding Shoes a few weeks ago.

A big thank you to Brian Tropiano who captured this shoot so beautifully.

Moroccan Wedding Inspiration #primarypetals

Together with Carly Rae Weddings we pieced together a moroccan wedding inspiration shoot.  We used dahlias, china mums, poppies, ranunculus, astilbe, veronica, foxglove, privet berries, italian ruscus, and some assorted fruit to create bright yet understated arrangements.  The fluted brass vases mixed with amber glass and aged lanterns tie everything together to give it that final touch.  The sand dunes certainly don’t hurt either!  I swear if I wasn’t there myself I would have a hard time believing this all took place in California.

This has to be one of my favorite bouquets.  The blue velvet wrap ties everything together so beautifully and adds the perfect accent color to this oasis of light and sand.
