COLOR DREAMS: inspired by gems & minerals

Images of gems & minerals get me every time. There is a mysterious magic in the natural world that opens my mind to possibility. The color and texture that occurs is better than anything we could dream up, which is why nature is where I end up whenever I feel stuck or uninspired. 

This photo by Mackensey Alexander is luminous. I love when events incorporate personal meaning and connections into their details. This shoot featured on Swooned Magazine is soft, mystical and enchanting. These vendors have shown what can happen when you embrace what makes you unique and different. Rock candy cupcakes. Subtle, yet gorgeous, colors and textures. Florals that can be dried and last a lifetime. I know it's not the traditional voluminous gown, with feminine touches and overflowing vases of blooms, but I really dig this one.
