Beach Glam, Winter 2017

I am lucky enough to have someone in my life who is a friend, a brother, and an a fabulous photographer-Kevin Zansler! He is great to work with and produces beautiful photos. We were able to scrap together a shoot right before Valentines Day. It was cold, sandy, and I had both kiddos-without fail, he delivered and put my Rose Gold Glam items to use! Enjoy! All of these items are up for rent, with the exception of the macarons from Bakery Nouveau and cheesecake from TraderJoe's (cut to size). Flowers from Seattle Growers Market.

Why The Flowering Fern?

The fern plant is an abundant species in the Pacific Northwest. Growing year after year with beauty, comfort, and support. Camping as a child, I grew to know ferns as a medicinal plant to ease an itchy bite. As an adult, I find them in bouquets, ornamental gardens, and as a street buffer. An ancient Slavic tale explains that those who found a fern flower will receive power, luck, & good-judgement. In this tale, a fern flower would bloom during the solstice period, and many would celebrate, calling the flower hunt-Kupala night. When this flower is found, it is up to the seeker to decide if they want to embark on this believed journey or to find all of their power within. The fern is a versatile plant that represents my ability to adapt to the needs of your event and you personally, aiding every step of the way. The end result is what you take with you and I hope it is beautiful and memorable. ~ Rachel
