For the couple who’s a little bit classic and a little bit modern, we think the best marriage of the two happens in flowers! Let those classic bold blooms take on a muted tone for a vibe that’s super modern. And while dried flower arrangements are becoming more common in terms of offerings, it’s a totally unique design element that we love. And Jaimi at Ever and Ivy Events agrees!
We used beautiful dried, bleached florals to give this shoot some edge while also being realistic for couples. When discussing the vision with our florist, Eversomething, they’d been experimenting with dried florals so it was a perfect fit. Combining the dried flower arrangments with modern touches made the overall look appealing to the couple who wants something a little different!
The day took place at Spain Ranch in Tulsa (in the most rad black barn!) and Sami Strong captured all the details. Let’s have a look!
A romantic invitation by Laurel & Marie set the stage.
