I’ve gotten to know Olivia over the years as we’ve collaborated on several photography projects as she’s the most gorgeous model. But there’s nothing quite as sweet as working on a real wedding.
Since she had been exposed to so many pretty projects, Olivia had a great eye and knew exactly what she wanted. Simply blush blooms, vintage gold details and a rustic barn setting. It was perfect.
The only down side to a wedding in mid July is the lack of peonies. Their availability is few and far between. Those that you can find had a hefty price tag and we just couldn’t make them a reality until Carter stepped in. About a month before their wedding I received the most romantic of requests from Carter, as he had learned of Olivia’s desire for peonies and he wondered if there was any way he could surprise her with an arrangement for in her dressing room. Of course I obliged and was even able to sneak a few extra blooms for the arrangement into Olivia’s bouquet.
So as the sun shown down on a hot Friday in July, Olivia and Carter became Mr & Mrs – surrounded with gorgeous countryside, the love of family and friends and of course, beautiful blooms by their side.
