Welcome to Summer!

Here we are again, at that point in the year where spring officially becomes summer! We rang it in with two sweet weddings this weekend. Last week for peonies, but the garden roses are looking amazing. Poppies will probably be done in the blink of an eye, but for now we are loving them and using them as much as possible! Here are a few shots snapped of an arrangement for the sweetheart table for one of our weddings this weekend. Bright, clean, Dutch Masters style.

Featured on 100 Layer Cake!

Last November, we collaborated on a photo shoot that was recently published on 100 Layer Cake! For this shoot, we really wanted to play with COLOR. As the shoot took place in November, we went foraging around Seattle for fallen leaves and cool seed pods to bring in some of that awesome, crisp, autumn texture. We combined earthy browns, punchy oranges, and lush pinks with modern metals and teal accents, to create a super rich color palette.

It is a rather strange time of year to highlight such autumnal designs, but I didn't want to wait until next fall to share! Hopefully this will inspire anyone out there currently planning a wedding this coming fall. Enjoy, and be sure to check out all the amazing vendors who contributed to this shoot (list at the bottom of the post).
