I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

When Victorian meets modern, romantic meets edgy, and a natural desert setting becomes an elegant venue–the incredible talent behind today’s moody desert  inspiration mixed unexpected styles together to create a unique look. Planner BTS Event Management and florist 1209 Creative used TONS of florals with a focus on orchids, black ranunculus, dahlias and large garden roses for an edgy-elegance that we love. Check out all the details in these beautiful images captured by Andrea Elizabeth Photography.

Quail Ranch Events—with its expansive grounds filled with lemon, orange and avocado trees—was the ideal setting for this citrus-themed inspiration shoot. Pairing bright, citrusy colors in the florals by Peony & Plum, actual citrus fruit from the Ranch with metallic golds and grays in the form of marble accents and tabletop decor completed the fresh, summery, outdoor vibe that A Stunning Affair envisioned. All the vibrance in the sun-kissed details is captured in these gorgeous photos by  Birds of a Feather.
