The uber-talented Jennifer Hamilton of Mr. & Mrs. Events contacted me about designing the florals for a styled photo shoot at the historic Carnton Plantation in Franklin, and it was an easy ‘yes’.

Basic ideas were in place, but after some further brainstorming, Jennifer and I had fleshed out the rest of the details… ‘Details’ is Jennifer’s middle name – I’ve seen a copy of the birth certificate, which is to say that she’s REALLY good at what she does.

The concept of the setting was a play on a country song called ‘Honey Bee’ by Blake Shelton and portrays a couple’s engagement. The purpose of the shoot was A. to show that Mr.&Mrs. Events knows their stuff and B. to provide inspiration to brides with Internet access and proper Google searching abilities. With the black and white striped tablecloth contrasted by gold flatware and gold chargers, I finally had an opportunity to use some interesting brass containers I had been collecting. As for the flower arrangements, you’ll see that I chose jewel-toned blooms mixed with some soft pastels – a color combo which I felt provided a season-unspecific look. I truly love the outcome and can’t wait for another styled shoot with Jennifer. Here’s to hoping for some Pinterest love!
