The green of the lawn and a fragrant hint of rosemary (the town’s namesake) in the air lend freshness to this sweet celebration as the bridal party frolics before an elegant outdoor dinner in Rosemary Beach, Florida. Depth and a personal touch are revealed in the subtle details, such as custom name cards at each setting, fresh olive and eucalyptus boughs draped over the table, an array of deep blue and white anemones, gold and silver accents, and blue agate crystals embossed with hand-painted table numbers and the happy couple’s initials. The cerulean, indigo, and Aegean blue tones mirror the nearby waters of the Gulf of Mexico, whose steady waves can be heard crashing on white sands just steps away.
“While conceptualizing this editorial photo shoot, our team drew inspiration from the earthy beauty, tonal quality, and shimmering iridescence of geodes, quartz, and raw gemstones,” says Kaitlyn Partin of Flowers by Milk and Honey. “Living along the Gulf Coast, we are accustomed to admiring the beauty that surrounds us, but we knew that we wanted to transform our project into a landscape that would evoke the feeling of clean, raw, natural beauty, encouraging brides to draw inspiration from both their imaginations and the beauty of their own backyards in order to create an event that is unique to them.”
