Shade Hotel Shoot

The Shade Hotel is such a cool and stylish luxury hotel in Manhattan Beach and it was the perfect place for this shoot. Aaron Young shot all the goodies you’re about to see and it all couldn’t have happened without the amazing Constance Curtis!

We had two floral concepts going on, and these upcoming pictures are the first concept.. A little bit of romance mixed with a lot of pretty in muted tones, all carefully designed with blush garden roses, lavender roses and ranunculus, ivory hydrangea and lisianthus, with touches of gold.

We then swapped out the arrangements with our second concept.. Something different. Still pretty, still romantic, but a lot more bold!
