Coordinator & Stylist: Brenda Cali, Owner, Event & Wedding Consultant, Gathering for Good
This photo shoot was inspired by mixing modern and vintage elements to create a classically romantic and timeless feel. The rustic dark wood furniture and soft color palette of the delicate floral arrangements were perfectly balanced against the gold accented decor. The models were styled in gowns that relish a former time period with modernized appeal. The bold, rich landscape and architectural backdrop enhanced the intrigue and flirtation of old and new to create a moment frozen in time.

Jill Redman: Forage Florals:
A SHORT INTERVIEW FROM JILL REDMAN OF FORAGE FLORALS:
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR SPECIALTY?“Creating arrangements with unique and interesting foliage and blooms, bringing in textures and fragrances from the native California landscape.”
OVERALL STYLE IN 3 WORDS?
Natural . Unique . Textural
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
“Antique oil paintings of flowers. Oils take long periods of time to paint, artists often captured the life and death of a flower in one canvas. I imagine these artists thoughtfully painting the portrait over time as each petal fell to the table. I love the darkness and depth in these paintings, the arrangements are often perfectly wild and a bit undone.”
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?
“My design philosophy is quirky and unconventional. I enjoy the rustic and the natural…. I enjoy being surprised and inspired by the landscape that surrounds me… I love that I will never see the same flower twice.”
Services include wedding floral design & special occasion floral design.

The Make-Up: Shanie Crosbie
“I’m always excited and fueled by talented and creative people and to have the opportunity to work with other professionals, I feel that’s how I achieve my best work. Everyone involved with the project was local to the Santa Barbara area and was so great to work with. For the “Vintage Bridal Glamour Shoot” inspiration was in every detail. The gowns were beautifully delicate and had the “classic vintage” style about them, the pin curled hair and flowing waves. As the makeup artist I wanted to keep that overall feel with the makeup, clean and simple with the standard vintage classic, red lips. Vintage is all about classic lines and bold details and that’s how my makeup translated with this project, vintage never goes out of style! There was a collective harmonious vibe throughout the entire shoot and I think that shines through with what was captured by the creative team behind this beautiful shoot.”
