…To Stella on her 8th Birthday…

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
― E.E. Cummings

…heart of a wanderer…styled shoot…

We planned this for ever, and it finally happened.  Our intention wasn’t for it to be Valentine’s related, but not that the time is upon us, it seems perfect.  We were lucky enough to have it featured over at Green Wedding Shoes.   There were so many elements I LOVED about this shoot. I just love a bride with flowers in her hair, and this version of a head wreath which had flowers on ribbon, was perfect for the her and the flower girls.  Not to mention the flower girl dresses from Mini-Boden.  I thought the soft colors that off set the florals worked so well together. I also loved how our hand dyed napkins turned out.  The were so easy and had such an effect on the tablescape. Enjoy!
