California Hippie Chic Inspiration

The best thing that Mondays can bring on chilly mornings like these is that we can almost peek at Spring coming right around the corner, and it’s only getting closer. This very favorite season of ours, combined with the talents of Tinywater Photography and Enjoy Events Co. is bringing us the San Franciscan flair with lots of inspiration for the hopelessly romantic and bohemian at heart.

From the ladies of Enjoy Events Co.: We envisioned the concept behind this California/Hippie chic shoot when the song “San Francisco” came on the radio. You know the one, “when you’re going to Saaaaan Fraaaaaaancisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your haaaaaaaaaair.” Being based in the Bay Area we knew we wanted to create a shoot that reflected the sun, splendor and natural beauty that is California (sf in particular) and what better venue then Foreign Cinema. This venue is quintessential San Francisco with its industrial yet organic feel. We wanted to incorporate lots of CA/Hippie chic things. Like water color, butterflies, flowy dresses, gladiator sandals and guitars. We created over a hundred hand cut-out + watercolor butterflies to place on the industrial wall to evoke a romantic vibe with a twist. We collaborated with the wonderful team over at twigss on the florals to design “wildflower” like blooms with a hint of “hippie”. We collected copper vessels and wood boxes to place the flowers in. From the stunningboutonniere, bouquet, floral “head piece” and centerpieces we loved the color the flowers brought to the table! For the table top we wanted to incorporate color with turquoise pottery plates, gold brushed flatware and a hand-painted a yellow table runner. We keep with natural hues like cream, yellow, copper and blushes to extenuate the hippie chic vibe. The shoot was captured perfectly to evoke the California feel we hoped for by Tinywater!
