Dark and dramatic florals from Saipua and Nicolette Camille

May 23, 2011

We have such a gorgeous floral shoot to start the week! It’s dark and lovely and so different from most things we see around the wedding blog world. Nicolette Camille and Saipua being floral genuises, we’re not surprised in the least.

Isn’t it just divine?

Her dress is pretty amazing against the dark flowers and moody lighting. It’s vintage and part of Sarah’s private collection.

As always, the bouquet is scary pretty. Nicolette and Sarah really have a special power over bridal flowers. They’re like savants in that way.

Um, hellebore and passion vine hair flowers? So brilliant. Especially in her long dark hair.

And then there’s the vintage diamonds, selected by Russell Whitmore of Erie Basin (where the shoot took place). All of the jewelry and props are Russell’s. The man has good taste, clearly.

It’s all so perfect, we’re a bit beside ourselves. Thank you so much for sharing your work with us, Sarah and Nicolette! You ladies are too much.
