A Year of Flowers Pt. 3: March's Daffodils, The New Orleans Botanical Garden, New Orleans, LA

Well, Spring has officially sprung! Green Wedding Shoes's newest post on 'A Year of Flower's' is up today! This month's birth flower is the Daffodil. Thanks again to contributing vendors Destiny Pinson, and Logan Doerries for the phenomenal collaboration.
Daffodils represent new life, hope and a fresh start. They herald in the season of flowers, so, it was amazingly appropriate to shoot this installment at the New Orleans Botanical Gardens. This garden paradise was a wonderful backdrop for our beautiful 1950's maiden. Inspired by her amazing attire, our model Kelly Tesvich took on the air of Leisl from Sound of Music to a tee. Please, enjoy my personal picks from the shoot, and stop by Green Wedding Shoes for more history and pics on the gorgeous Daffodil!

A Year of Flowers Pt. 2: February's Iris, Race + Religious, New Orleans, LA

It's official! Sonia Savio Photography has a series on Green Wedding Shoes! This month's birth flower is the iris. How lucky did I get with my amazing collaboration with Destiny Pinson, Logan Doerries and Race + Religious?!
This is going to be an exciting year, and I hope y'all will join me for the ride! This romantic shoot was such a fun little twist of modern vintage, which Race + Religious as a venue is all about. And how perfect is it that the iris is the emblem for the fleur de lis, and that the month of February is also the month of Mardi Gras? I do love my crescent city of New Orleans and how, just like the iris, it has resilience and frailty at the same time. Please, enjoy some additional images to the collection Green Wedding Shoes picked out, but do make sure to go check out GWS for more history on the Iris!
Man, these shoots have made me fall in love with flowers in a way that I never expected...
