April Showers Bring May Flowers

april showers bring may flowers

Inspired by the phrase “April showers bring May flowers,” the team for this lovely styled shoot (led by stylist Lindsey Zamora and Amanda Jameson Photography) wanted to put together some whimsical garden inspiration for weddings. The upside down umbrella spilling over with flowers is so magical – wait until you see it! So perfect for spring or summer garden weddings! And the bride’s Catherine Deane gown with it’s petal inspired bodice is the perfect dress for any flower lover.

From Lindsay, The pewter bodice in the dress was mimicked by the metal chairs, which gave a great masculine and textual balance to the otherwise overly feminine feel.
