A Little Flower Therapy for the Soul.

A Little Flower Therapy for the Soul.

Back in March, Carolyn Marcotte of Youth and Yarrow posted an Instagram of a bride with a flower piece in her hair with a caption that read,

I always try to play it cool when brides ask me if I think they should put flowers in their hair, when what I really want to say is “yesabsolutely100%youdefinitelyNEEDTHEM!” It will always be a yes from me

I naturally replied that I couldn't agreed more and we were immediately messaging and dreaming up a styled shoot together. A collaboration of flower and hair design, photographed by Rachel Loewen.

We gathered together 5 uniquely beautiful women, with a goal of showing that anyone can pull off flowers in their hair. The afternoon was spent with me styling and restyling, and each lady switching between the different floral pieces Carolyn had made. There were a whole lot of laughs, a whole lot of inspired eyes, and a whole lot of full hearts by the time we walked out of that studio.

Brace yourself guys, you're about to swoon over each of these photos.

Carolyn is a gem of a lady & a gem of a florist. I'm constantly inspired by her work and it was such a treat to work side by side with her making our vision come alive. Prepare yourself for more collaborations with Youth & Yarrow here on the blog, because I know this is just the beginning of creating together.
