Boho Wedding Look And Feel Decor
A delicate rose gold head chain adorned with plum colored stones was the perfect accessory for our gorgeous brunette bride. Also noteworthy is the placement of the vintage mahogany sweetheart table under a dramatic and dark canopy of a pepper tree--we loved this location! Raspberries dusted with edible gold dust top the rich chocolate cake, fresh fruit and pastries are placed on the vintage drop leaf dessert table, and a refreshing plum "Jamtini" sits atop a gold-brushed bar cart waiting to be enjoyed. A "Jamtini" is a martini of sorts made with jam, and in this case we used plum jam, of course! Lastly, we were so excited to have such a fun couple for this shoot. They're celebrating their two-year anniversary this month!

From Taya Glynn of Compass Floral:
Throughout the year I am constantly cataloging flowers in my mind to use in the future. Chocolate lace was one that had been lingering without a home for a while. Chocolate lace reminds me of constellations, which in turn makes me think of bohemian. A nomadic gypsy sleeping under the night stars. So, when Katie asked me to participate in a bohemian stylized shoot I knew that chocolate lace was going to be a component. Some people may start their inspiration for shoots with big bold flowers and then work down to the details, I started with the dainty yet bold chocolate lace. I knew that for this bohemian shoot we were going to need unconventional colors. Rich, moody jewel tones to inspire brides to stray from the blushes, pinks & white. To go along with the chocolate lace I added in Darcy garden roses, Karl Rosenfeld peonies and a big fat protea. Add in some ranunculus, lisianthus and scabiosa with touches of orlaya and nigella and you have the formula for magical bohemian inspired florals. Although the chocolate lace may appear to be tucked in and slightly forgotten about, it was the initial spark that brought all of these arrangements together.
Flowers used: Protea, Karl Rosenfeld Peony, Darcy garden roses, Spray roses, Dahlia, Ranunculus, Snapdragon, Lisianthus, Veronica, Freesia, Scabiosa, Orlaya, Chocolate lace, Blushing bride, Agonis, Geranium leaves, Smoke bush, Trachelium, Calathea, Passion fruit vine, Nigella, Scabiosa pods.
