What a sweet love story between Sophie and Matt. Sophie is from Australia and met her man while going to the gym every day to work out, where he (an American) found a job there for a year. She soon started working out when she knew he would be working and went after what she wanted. Fast forward to 2016, she is now a resident of the US and happily moved to be with Matt and be his wife.
June Cochran is one of my favorite photographers that captures the essence of storytelling through her lens. Her use of black and white also enhances the mood felt and makes you stop and pause to reflect on what that day must have been like.
Sophie wanted to incorporate certain elements that would remind her of home, so we made sure to add in fruit like kiwi and flowers like kangaroo paw. Her cake was adorned with fruit and flowers to make it even more appetizing! The feel was to be lush and spilling out, soft hues in whites and peaches with an organic feel.
We added lanterns as another fun detail and had the flowers spilling out to create whimsy and playfulness. Certain flowers that you will see throughout these photos are: ‘Coral Charm’ peonies, coral dahlias, cream dahlias, navy viburnum berries, gold/mustard yellow amaranthus, coral sweetpeas, blush ranunculus, blush sweetpeas, soft yellow garden roses, seeded eucalyptus and green viburnum snowball, pomegranates, grapes, figs, peaches and kiwi.
