There’s something about flipping that calendar from January to February that gets us in a springy mood. Even though this bohemian editorial has winter written all over it, Joshua Tree’s landscape and the bride’s buncha peonies (see below!) sure warm things up a bit. Thanks to our guide member Anya Kernes Photography + a-lister The Blushing Bird + team for this brand new take on desert bohemian:
FYI! The Blushing Bird is a new LA-based bridal accessories boutique. Shop owner Jenni styled their bride in a boho-glam look with a Claire Pettibone gown + Mignonne Handmade quartz crystal crown.
Emerald might be our new fave color. Remember the shoes in yesterday’s Seattle wedding too? Swoon.
Peonies are always an instant mood booster around here mhmmm.
Brooke Griffin of Fern and Bone was the brainchild behind the concept with her rare vintage china setting the scene in shades of emerald and amber along with distinctive décor styling from wedding planner Lars Francisco of Finch Events. The coolest thing about this shoot was bringing together so many talented, passionate wedding professionals, all relatively new to the business, inspiring each other and working together to produce something imaginative from our own unique perspectives.
June Bloom Florals complemented the desert backdrop with a mix of cacti and other succulents, rounding out the winter magic with eucalyptus and giant pink peonies, and Anya Kernes brought the entire vision to life beautifully capturing the epic scenery along with stunning detail shots. Agreed!
Peony pink and emerald? Noted.
