I loved horses as a girl. I dreamed about living on a horse farm (ok, so secretly I still do!). I wanted to be Penny Chenery and own a Thoroughbred racehorse winner like Secretariat, who became the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years. So when Brianna with Brianna Wilbur Photography asked me to create florals for a senior picture shoot, I was ELATED!!
This girl and her horse just melted my heart, and I felt so honored to add such a special touch to her senior pictures. I used Juliet roses (a standard favorite!) to compliment her soft, blush dress, and to add pops of color to her head garland.
I wanted the horse wreath to be strong and solid, like her horse, yet with touches of femininity. I chose eucalyptus gunni as the perfect garland foliage, and lush white peonies with pops Juliet roses.
While I still dream of owning a horse someday, this sentimental experience gave me memories to keep my heart content for years to come (of which my husband is very thankful!).
