When you think of a winter wedding you must be thinking of snow, dark nights and lots of candles. Well today’s Winter Marriage comes from Florida, so it’s full of warm tones, sunshine and the most amazing gowns. The shoot was put together by Mary Likens Photography with the help of a first class collection of wedding suppliers. It happened on December 15 last year at Valkaria Gardens, Palm Bay, Florida. It is the perfect blend of boho meets eccentric with a host of other stunning flowers and muted tones, the beautiful King Protea, among the most amazing gowns by Olivia Bowen Bridal.
A boho and garden feel with whimsical fabrics and materials include warm tones along with some pops to create the perfect vibe.
Being a new photographer who recently left the teaching profession, I wanted to collaborate and be friends with someone else in the photography industry. I reached out to Shannon Valley and we decided to work together, in which we were both proud. This shoot is a combination of both our styles. Even though we are both in favor of the boho style, we are still a bit different.
Our inspiration actually came from a few things. We both fell in love with some local vendors and knew that we wanted to make something to show them all. Mimosas and Moonshine have these beautiful chairs that give us ideas for colors. Buds uses a flower called ACC King Protea which we knew would be a wonderful spotlight piece in the middle of the bouquet. Olivia Bowen Bridal is known for boho gowns with amazing prints, dresses and sleeves. We took the items that we KNEW and we wanted to use and worked backwords from there to create our boho vision.
I got more than I expected from this shoot. I was able to collaborate with some of the best sellers in my field and work with a group of creatives who will continue to work with me in the future. I was also able to see that I really enjoy shooting style. Shannon Veal and I are now working on some of her new scenes.
