Photo Shop and flowers!

Right out of my Nikon

One thing  I get asked so much about is the colors of flowers,  and thanks to photo shop and other sites that can adjust colors it can make flowers almost any color when really they do not grow naturally that way. It can tends to get some designers in a lot of trouble. I love to take photos with my Nikon it takes a pretty nice photo BUT I always send it to my Picnik and adjust colors here is a couple of example of what I mean
         As you can see the larger one is a better brighter  photo. so much detail. The other is a more dull and not cropped, or had anything adjusted on the color, It makes a world of difference on what you see and what you get.
          Brides just because Martha Stewart( and I love her) shows it in a certine color or shade dont always belive what your seeing.

Bird nest

I am totally in love with small birds and nest this season. I am not sure why I find them sooo charming. So that said I had to make a huge nest in one of my flower gardens this spring. I think it turned out so cute. What do you think?

Fresh Floral Art

blooms in vessels

What better way to show flower art?
I love framed art, I also love flowers! What better way to display both then in a frame and hang from trees at your venue or wedding site? I designed this for a show I just did on Saturday. I have Hot Pink, Green, and robins egg blue in different frame colors.
   hanging from tree branches, or from halls in a barn. WOW effect for sure.

Moon Gate Arch

This amazing moon gate is now ready for rent, you can be one of the first in the areas to have this amazing design for your outdoor wedding ...
