Romantic and Wintry Red Velvet Love

February 15, 2016
Captured beautifully by Jessica Watson Photography and with floral design by Floral Designs by Jessi, just one glance at this romantic scene and I'm instantly swept away to someplace dreamy.

This styled shoot started out with a vision of Queen of Hearts in mind, however, as all creative endeavors do and with the help of this gorgeous blush dress, it took on a soul of it's own and a more romantic, soft, vintage shoot unfolded.

All of the creatives involved felt that this is where the shoot was supposed to go! The soft delicate model and gorgeous hair and make-up allowed for a very 16th century feel.
