anthousai

a few weekends ago, I was able to photograph a workshop of one of my favorite florists, anthousai. a team of two, jenny and katie are based out of tulsa, ok, and are thriving in their skills in bringing to life the florals around them. their work is heavily inspired by wild plants and natural growth in local greenery and forged florals. they have an organic approach when it comes to arranging which preserves how living plants are originally flourishing and growing.

oh, and if you're wondering what "anthousai" means, it's a Greek work for “flower, in blossom”.

so, brides and event planners, if you're looking for an incredibly skilled team of florists, you're going to need this talented duo. head on over to their website, and make sure to give them a follow on instagram! (@anthousai_florals)

venue: savage space, tulsa.

Imperfect is better than perfect. Wasn't looking to follow the rules with these frames. Just making images how I saw them. Thank you Jordan for letting me photograph you! You are beautiful.

You'll never go to a wedding which is more laid back than this one, all the while remaining classy and styled at the same time. Cassandra and Trent's true focus was clearly on becoming married. The light fell at the perfect time as their ceremony took place inside Timmons Chapel on the campus at Pitt State.  There's so much more than the images shared here, but as usual, I leave you with just a taste of what it felt like to be close and behold the beauty of two people committing themselves to each other.

One word I would use to describe my time witnessing and celebrating the wedding of Katie & RJ is FUN! I enjoyed every minute of being there with all Katie's lady friends preparing for the day, the room was relaxing and filled with so much joy! Honored to be a part of these celebrations.
Congrats Katie & RJ and your lovely family and friends!

Everything about this wedding was stunning and in many ways perfect. The weather was so kind to us, and the sunlight was impeccable. The wedding was held at the beautiful Haseltine Estate in Springfield, MO. (beautiful!) I'm so happy for these two! I honestly felt honored and special to be there witnessing and capturing these precious things taking place. Marriage is beautiful and holy and that's why this matters.
Congrats Brittany & Austin! May these be a treasure to you for years to come!
