A Flower-Filled Bridal Editorial with Tulipina Designs

I had the wonderful opportunity a few weeks ago to travel to San Francisco to photograph the a one-on-one workshop for the incredible world-renowned floral designer, Tulipina.  She transformed her San Francisco studio into a bright fantasy world of blooms larger than my head for the beautiful model, Elise, to lounge in.  It was an honor to photograph her beautiful work and her student, Studio Floretta, along with gorgeous gowns styled by Annie Cavallo and lingerie pieces from A Girl With A Serious Dream topped off with gorgeous jewels from Trumpet and Horn and calligraphy by Written Word Calligraphy.  See this editorial today on Style Me Pretty.

Izzy and Tom were married on Deer Lake at the Boyne Mountain Resort in MI.  Izzy grew up spending her summer’s at her family’s cottage on the lake and knew that it would be the perfect spot to say her I Do’s.  The bride and groom were married next to the lake facing the beach house all covered in ivy, which carried over into the flowers and design for the day.  Izzy’s brother-in-law officiated the ceremony and the bride and groom were accompanied by Izzy’s sister and Tom’s brother as their Matron of Honor and Best Man.  Instead of a traditional wedding party both the bride and groom invited their friends to get ready with them and take pictures with them all in shades of grey, cream and blue.

The custom letterpress invitation suite featured a custom watercolor crest and the Save The Date and welcome note featured watercolor illustrations of the dock on the lake and a map of the Traverse Bay area.  The place cards were also watercolored in shades of blue and displayed on a hanging macrame piece at the entrance of the tent decorated in ivy.  The bride kept her family close to her on the day by wrapping her bouquet in her great grandmother’s handkerchief.  The bride also paid tribute to her family by following in her mother and sister’s footsteps and smashing her own glass during the I Do’s.

The bride and groom had their first look by the lake followed by portraits in the forest before the ceremony while guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony refreshment.  After the ceremony guests returned to the cocktail lounge area by the water and the Matron of Honor and officiant’s 6-month-old golden doodle puppy made a quick appearance.  Guests were welcomed into the tent for dinner and dancing, which had been set in Tuscan blue linens with dark blue napkins and gold silverware for contrast with organic white and green centerpieces.  The head table was a rectangular farm table with a leafy green runner dotted with white garden roses and peonies and a couch for the bride and groom to lounge on in between dances.  The bride surprised her groom with a dessert table full of donuts- his favorite treat- in addition to the cake.  After cutting the cake the bride and groom took a quiet moment to themselves to walk to the end of the dock and watch sunset wrapped in one of the blankets thoughtfully provided for guests to snuggle up in as the nights get cold.
