The earliest signs of spring stirred our imagination for this inspirational shoot at Ashton Hill Farm in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The inspiration began with the cool crisp tones of white and grey carrara marble-even on the cake! To add warmth and texture, soft linen fabrics were layered, and classic accents of sterling silver dinnerware and candlesticks finished the look. Everything was tied together with heavenly white spring flowers with the slightest kiss of pale lavender, and tender green vines were a nod to the early spring season.
The handtied bouquet was a bounty of spring's finest flowers-filled with lush peonies, ranunculus, tulips, and fragrant sweet pea in the pales lavender possible. I wish you could have caught a whiff of the sweet fragrance the medley of flowers created!
The result is a refined, textural and classic look. What a beautiful way to celebrate love on the eve of the spring equinox!
