Floral Couture with Abby Chick + Harrisonburg Harlots

Floral Couture with Abby Chick + Harrisonburg Harlots

Every once in a blue moon, I come across another creative who isn't satisfied with creating something that is simply very beautiful, and on those rare occasions my artistic heart just melts into a sappy puddle and an instant bond is formed.

This collaboration is a love story between Abby Chick (who runs Blakemore's Flowers), the Harrisonburg Harlots (a burlesque group run by Sindi Ray Boustier), and me. Obvi.

Peaches & Cream -- Styled wedding

Let's get LIT! -- a fun styled workshop with a twist

Let's get LIT! -- a fun styled workshop with a twist

Bringing on the fun year, we wanted to try a quirky way to show a whimsical take of love in a more... radiant way! We showcased the hues of electric orange, fuchsia and blues through the flowers, jewelry, shoes and even the food! We started off by introducing our couple in a traditional, romantic way, but then we flipped the switch on them, leaving them in total shock as we finished up the second half of the shoot as a glow-in-the-dark wedding!
