Vanderbilt Grace Wedding PhotographersI always enjoy seeing the final result of the collaboration between the bride, groom, and floral designer at a wedding. At this 2013 Newport, Rhode Island wedding the bride worked with Flowers by Semia for her wedding and reception decor. This gorgeous bridal bouquet was one of the best floral arrangements I’ve seen. I love the ombre effect of the purple and pink flowers and how rich and lush the blooms are. I would highly recommend Flowers by Semia to anyone getting married in Newport - they really listened to the bride and exquisitely made her vision come to life. I always try to create the best lighting possible for my detail shots and the window light at the Vanderbilt Grace is simply perfect. By putting the bouquet so close to the window I was able to have a strong light source on the flowers while the background stayed subtle and dark.
