Gathering all the seasonal, sustainable elements of green for summer inspiration, Malaika and Spencer are straight out of a romance novel. With their exquisite features, this couple embodies the feeling of summer, young love, and high fashion models.
I can see Spencer at 6'7" strutting down a Gucci runway and Malaika modeling anything for an editorial spread. It's their passion for one another that really caught my eye at an art show this Spring.
I gathered my local neighbors, Lindell Flower Farm and asked her to source local, seasonal greens. She grows organic flowers and designs bouquets for couples who want to be closer to nature with an artful touch.
Together LLC is my new neighbor and they are an event rental company who's exquisite collection was a dream for me to choose a backdrop for my studio. I wanted green with a touch of boho for a beautiful lounge area.
I purchased the Spell + Gypsy Collective dress for my collection because this is part of my traveling dress series where I will take her around the world to be portrayed by different goddesses.
I love that Spell sources their fabrics from sustainable avenues and supports the community and workers that create their beautiful designs. They are a company that gives back to nature and the world.
All Dolled Up was my make-up artist at my own wedding and I gave her creative freedom to create a look that she felt suited the story.
That's what I love about gathering my creative friends, everyone has freedom of expression to create what they want and that's when we do our best work, rather than being directed how it should be. We had a glorious time in my studio and wandering around the river, field and forest. Any lovers dream
