I love what I do. There are so very many reasons why, but one important one is I love the community I am apart of. Embracing other professionals talent and working together is important! It takes all of us to make our happy couples vision come true. Our paths are constantly crossing with other designers, rental companies, catering companies, planners, florist and more. While I have many many people I adore, a couple businesses I hold dear to my heart as they have had an important role in the encouragement and support that has brought me here. One of those companies was Carrollwood Florist. Their floral shop is a family owned business and Jaclyn and Catherine have done an amazing job heading up and designing all the weddings. Over the summer they shared with me they were taking a big step branching off under their own company as Marigold Flower Co. I was so excited and eager to help in anyway I could. I offered to do a branding and styled shoot for them. They shared with me their idea client, and their vision for their site. We gathered an amazing group of vendors to work with us and had a long day of setup and styling. Sarah + Ben devoted their day to hang out with us and capture it all! I have been dying to share these photos and not only that, but I am super excited we were recently featured on Every Last Detail! I simply loved every detail of this shoot, and The Ivy Astoria was such a super fun venue to setup at!
