We did the florals for this gorgeous photoshoot at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, and Allison Davis from Davis Row did the planning. Allison is a full-service wedding planner who just moved from New York and is now based in Charlotte. Our goal was to create something that felt timeless and elegant with bits of modernity and a touch of relaxed sophistication.
We were so excited to do a project with a pastel rainbow color palette, and we chose the most luxurious florals. The mix of locally sourced dahlias, tuberose, eucalyptus, and premium quality garden roses was perfect.
Quintel and Jason are a real couple, which you can probably tell from looking at these photos. They’ve been together for over a decade. After we wrapped shooting, they told us that their wedding was much smaller than they’d hoped for and that they had no photos from the occasion. This photoshoot was actually Quintel’s first time in a wedding gown! So, in a way, these are their wedding photos. It was already such an incredible experience, and to know we were able to create memories for them to look back on forever made it that much more powerful.
