Floral Installations

Hi friends! I want to talk about "installations" really quick because we do a handful of them. They are terrifying yet oh so gratifying. If you asked me what an installation was about four years ago I would look at you puzzled because it really wasn't a thing. Now a days, it is a MAJOR thing when it comes to floral design. I have added a few images of our own installations where we used lots of man power, many tall ladders and sometimes big machines to get the job done. 

 

This was in 2016 at the Old Decatur Courthouse. The client wanted to bring the outdoors in so we decided to create a climbing greenery wall for their ceremony backdrop. We actually placed a 12 foot ladder inside of this alcove. Don't you worry about the mechanics behind all of it, I can promise you though it wasn't going anywhere. Image by Twin Hearts Photography.

This was a simple one yet still considered an install at the beautiful Sugarboo Farms. We centered a piece of driftwood that we found and hung different types of vertical greenery. Do you recognize this rug? Yep! It is our own rug sitting in the studio in the conference room. Our clients got married on it! Image by  King of All Cosmos

Brickyard in Marietta is such a cute little space. They offer this very large (10-12 foot wide) hoop for all of their clients. We decided to "green" the entire thing with all foraged greenery and a little bit of "hops". Yes, "hops" like what is in beer. Luckily, the hoop is able to be lowered so we didn't have a whole lot of ladders involved but we did lots of foraging and balancing to make this a statement piece. Image is by me!

Saving the best for last! This is one of my most favorite install. It was one of the scariest ones I have ever done. We hung vertically 20 garlands from the ceiling over the guests. This took a lot of logistically thinking and ladders but it turned out beautifully, don't you think? Image by Sarah Eubanks Photography

Who is up for the challenge? We have so many more images to show you of our installations but I would love to hear what you have dreamed up? Email me AJ@AMANDAJEWEL.COM lets dream big things together. :)

Halloween in NOLA-Introducing dried florals

The best place to celebrate Halloween is in New Orleans so why not a styled shoot?! Yep, been there done that! So happy with the results and our fabulous collaboration of friends. Take a look....if you dare!!!!

I also debuted my dried florals. Below you will find an all dried bouquet that I made from drying all year long from past events. It was my goal to extend the life of florals beyond just the fresh floral because they do die. I consider my floral work, "art" and now I have new art to introduce to the world in dried florals. I thought this was the best shoot to launch them, don't you think?

P.S. I also made a piece of dried floral jewelry.
