Jardin De Buis with Blue Jasmine Floral Design

This European and floral-inspired styled shoot is straight from the mind of the talented and lovely Paulina (and TJ, too!) of Blue Jasmine Floral Design. I can't really explain the joy it brings me to listen to someone else's vision and bring it to life for them, especially if it's specifically for their branding! So, hence, ALL THE BLUES! 

When dreaming up a a styled shoot, it's always fun to create a little story about your couple. Geoff & Sam are actually married, but here is a bit about their alter egos....written by Paulina! Hope this transcends you to a romantic garden wedding on an overcast day...

"Laurel is part of the research and development perfumer team for Chanel.
She spends some time in France at Chanel’s headquarters contributing to
the brand’s concoctions. She met her fiancé, Ian, on what had become a
routine plane ride.

Both Laurel & Grey enjoy intimate conversations, long dinners, travel, nature, and
living their life in the margins. Their ideal setting for the wedding was
one that would transport you to the destination that made their union a
reality. Both being east coast natives, they wanted to keep the wedding
stateside. The natural choice was a gem of a location, nestled in the
western sector of the Garden State. The intimate greenhouses and antique
filled rooms of the private estate is simply ideal. 

The color palette of blues, and clean whites, mingling with natural
elements like seasonal green foliage juxtaposed with the wood and stone
of the location evokes the perfect mix of elegant, distinctive, and graceful.
The details for ceremony, tabletop, invitation suite, and dessert display are
relaxed yet refined; reflecting their love of Europe mixed with their amiable
and modern spirit to create something new and fresh; like a new scent thatwas all their own.

Organically designed florals include some of her favorite floral notes;
making for pieces that harmonized well with the existing beauty of the
greenhouses. Each seasonal piece was the perfect balance of whimsicaland effortless beauty".

Hope this inspires you on your own wedding day! xx Jessa

A Palm Springs Inspired shoot with Gilded Lily Events

Have I mentioned that I love working with Paige of Gilded Lily Events? Once she sent a little inspiration board for this Palm Springs inspired shoot, I scoured our town of Sea Bright, New Jersey and found two perfect spots to bring her vision to life. Although the beach was RIGHT THERE, Palm Springs itself doesn't have a beach in sight! So, sticking to a color-blocking aesthetic, Nicole and Mike took my direction of being cheeky, fun and in love, and completely killed it. Here is a little preview, what are your favorite details? I am loving the flamingo cake topper! 

Venue: The mean streets of Sea Bright, NJ
