Would you believe me if I told you these were all silk flowers?! I was asked to collaborate with my FAVORITE silk flower company, Afloral, and create two end of summer/fall looks using their amazing products! Not only do they have the best silk flowers, but they also have candles, vases, ribbon, faux plants, fresh greenery and so much more!
While collaborating with Afloral, I also had the chance to work with some other amazing vendors! The venue, sister to The Red Poppy, and the soon to be “Water Tower Point”, was simply perfect! Not only was the owner super sweet and accommodating, she also worked us into her schedule amidst all the construction still going on! Kana Brown, owner and Lady Boss of The Beauty Room - located in Evansville, jumped in last minute to model (even dragging her hunky boyfriend along!) and I couldn’t be more appreciative! Isn’t she stunning?! Our other model, Natalie Burke, owns Natalie Joseph’s Salon in McLeansboro, Illinois. She is not only beautiful on the outside but she is truly the BEST human I know. The wonderful ladies at House of White chose some gorgeous gowns for us that were simply perfect (Thanks Kellen + Maddi!). And for the genius behind the images - Laura Rush, Owner of Esther Bloom Photography, stepped away from her signature dark + moody style to take a lighter and airier approach (but only just this once!). She knocked it out of the park, as always! And last, but certainly not least, my Mom - she was my right hand man and assistant and I couldn’t have pulled it off without her!
