We’re quite pleased to be stepping into the weekend with this darling shoot on the mind. Mary Claire Photography + the team found a little slice of the French countryside right at home in Arizona, and when you find such a place you clearly make the most of it!

Posies Floral sure has a way of making us forget our love of colored bouquets.

We wanted this shoot to make you feel as if you were transported to the French countryside. From the early stages of planning we wanted to keep the design clean and simple with an organic, ethereal feel. We wanted the gorgeous tablescape to seamlessly integrate with its surroundings and the loose, organic shape of the florals and elements foraged from the location achieved this look. Ultimately we love the idea of an effortlessly sophisticated bride and groom, the type of people who are completely at ease with themselves and each other, the type of bride who runs around barefoot hand in hand with her love.

Sara says, Our 2015 collection was inspired by watercolored florals and branches. I recently began watercoloring as a hobby and a form of meditation so the sketches and paintings that I practiced with really made my imagination turn. Also as a violinist during the day, everything about classical music inspires me in my designs. See the music influence below…

Basically, this is your chance to get shoes, jewelry, accessories, and dresses at up to 60% Most of the dresses are under $200 too. Here’s a peek at the selection:

Also a great time to stock up on formalwear for any other black tie affair you may have coming up.

If you haven’t shopped on HauteLook before, here’s the scoop: Each day at 8am PST, they have a new sale (fashion, accessories, beauty, kids, home décor, etc.), featuring products at up to 75% off.
