Another onelove photography beauty and it takes place all in the majesty of the great outdoors at California’s Demetria Estate. Genevieve and Clark’s wedding is just so elegant and what I love the most about it is that despite hosting their big day outdoors, they pull in lovely, soft pops of color that simply work well with the vineyard surroundings. From the gray in Clark’s dapper suit to the sweet pink hue of Genevieve’s bridesmaids’ dresses and the dahlias in the centerpieces by Connor Casavan, it was all compiled so effortlessly by Emily Bowser. Enjoy this classic garden fête!
For me, one of the greatest parts of fall is seeing all the berry-toned bouquets emerge. Patricia Kantzos Photography helped Bourgeon celebrate the opening of their new studio with this stunning shoot showcasing a bouquet that couldn’t possibly be any more gorgeous, with stems of scabiosa, peonies, ranunculus, and clematis.
From the photographer, Patricia Kantzos: Amy Febinger of Bourgeon and I worked together on an inspiration shoot as a way to celebrate the opening of her Brooklyn flower studio. We wanted to keep it clean and showcase a wedding bouquet, the simplicity of the flowers used along with the bouquet’s architecture and design elements.
Amy decorated her studio space with some beautiful pieces she inherited from her mother and grandmother. We decided to use some of these details in the shoot – the rocking chair, antique silver tray, the pink depression glass pitcher, the Prince Albert tin she uses everyday to hold pins… This was an incredibly heartfelt way to honor her mother and grandmother.
Our flower guide today brought by Alea Moore Photography and Boukates is shining the light on large blooms. We all love coral charm peonies, but even more reason to love is that large flowers are a great bang for your bouquet buck. You can use use them mixed with more budget-friendly fillers and flowers, and it always look gorgeous in a mixed bouquet!

From Janie Medley: The best time to purchase ranunculus is now… January through May. This time of the year is when they are in abundance and you can find them in so many yummy and vibrant colors. You will not be able to get them during the hottest months of the summer and you will see certain colors slowly start coming to the market in the fall.
Tulips can be purchased year round, however, you can’t get all varieties during the year. As with
ranunculus, the best time to purchase them are now. There is an abundance of colors and varieties at the market.
Sweet peas are available from December through May. White Scabiosa – you can find this flower year round but all colors may not be available.
Maidenhair fern, seeded eucalyptus, Queen Anne’s lace are in season year round.
