Soft and Romantic yet Wild and Desert | Kenzie and Tyler

The Potted Pansy Baylee Dennis Bouquet

Light. Golden light. Wispy texture that catches that light. Soft blushes, champagnes, creams and ivories dotted with bits of dry and live florals.

Tulips, dry hydrangea, only the best sahara and quicksand roses (yes, I love their names), blushing bride protea, branches, and my ever favorite desert yearning. And the ever-famous lunaria making an appearance. 

Sage and Utah brush at it's finest. The slightest glimpse of the lake in the background. Warm summer sunsets and quiet moments together. 

Hats and gowns that flow in the wind and let the light shine right through them.

Ribbon that flows on for days.

Simple love. The kind that has been through a bit of a rough patch. The kind that has weathered a few storms. The kind that is deep and strong and not fleeting.

It's kind of what I love.

The Gown and The Queen Who Wears It | Utah Wedding Floral

Blake Hogge and Ruedenseine with The Potted Pansy Utah bridal

You all know I go a little head over heels for that boho bride who dances to her own beat and hears her own music. So how could I not jump at the chance to work with this talented team to photograph the ULTIMATE boho dress?! Not wedding you say? I beg to differ!

Just because a gown isn't white doesn't mean it isn't a gown! Remember, do you! Be you! If you fall in love with a dress listen to that inner voice telling you this is it! Ignore what the world says. Ignore what others say. If this is really you, go for it! 

And enjoy every moment of being the princess, the queen, the star of the show in that gown! Here's a quick peek at some of the beautiful images captured on this day. The gown itself makes a statement, but when perfectly paired with the other details, it's a show stopper! 

What do you think of that crown? Talk about a modern day queen? That crown is it! Soft, natural hair in a half up do accents it perfectly. Flawless natural makeup that defines the natural beauty in this bride. Florals that also make a statement and pull out the tones and detail in that gown. Ribbon. I don't ever think I even need to say anything about ribbon. The setting. Weeds. Rocks. Dirt. A bit of water in the background. A golden sunset. Editing style that knocks these images out of the park.

And the most important part, love.
