In my other life I want to be a florist so I can learn how to create complete magic like today’s botanical inspired shoot from Anne Robert Photography.
With some of the most incredibly romantic floral design ever from Holly Chapple & gorgeous vintage details from Something Vintage Rentals – this shoot isn’t just an inspiration shoot – it’s an attempt to breathe new life into an abandoned Virginia mansion that during its heyday used to host some of the prettiest weddings around.
Despite being abandoned for over a decade, Selma Mansion is still breathtakingly beautiful. I just adore how Holly utilized the piano she found still there – filling it with flowers from her own garden and local growers.
From Holly Chapple – “I was 25 years old when I did my first wedding at Selma Plantation… it was very moving to sweep out the dust and bring the pretty back into the house. I seriously had flashbacks in the mansion – I could remember hanging garlands on the grand staircase 20 years ago…”
