Someone pinch us, please.
We’ve fully fallen head over heels—er, head over and under florals—for our February/March cover photo, on newsstands now!
It’s pulled right from the pages of our “Her Moment” wedding gown shoot, photographed by the talented Carrie McGuire Photography at Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate, during which our creative director had the brilliant vision of culling together a bevy of beautiful backdrops involving objects like balloons, a pile of chairs (that ultimately took the backseat), and, never to be missed, florals.
Courtesy of Studio Palma, this shot became the flower of our cover-contending flock.
With the natural light hitting our bride just right, the falling florals paired perfectly with her Badgley Mischka “Brooke” gown, embellished also with petals, from Archive Bridal.
As for how Rissa Walters, Studio Palma’s owner and floral designer, pulled off the scene? That would be hundreds of dangling dahlias and a lot of patience stringing together the thread that held them together, from the top of the ceiling and even to the chandeliers.
Without further ado, go on now, swoon!
