Brittany Village, Berkeley, CA

When you step into the Brittany Village District of Berkeley, CA, you might feel as though you've walked straight out of Northern California and landed in Europe, instead. The streets are lined with Tudor-style houses, and the streets are curved and rambling. Pair that with a soft blush dress, a garden-style bouquet complete with ferns and wild strawberries, and two gorgeous models, and you have a recipe for a stunning styled shoot! 

When Natalie Papova of Styled and Inspired asked me to create a botanically themed invitation suite for this shoot, I couldn't have been more excited. I started out with clean and modern black typeface on crisp white paper, but softened the look with hand-painted, delicate watercolor foliage and shimmery champagne calligraphy. Vintage stamps in various shades of green added to the character of the suite, and a sharp black wax seal was the perfect finishing touch!

This styled shoot was so elegant, yet effortless, classic, but with the perfect modern twist. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented team, and I can't wait for more shoots in the future!!
