Niagara wedding florist and designer, Nella Miller Design, brings us this drop-dead gorgeous creative shoot, captured by Carla Antonio. Set against the idyllic backdrop of Nella's personal gardens in Jordan, Ontario, this creative is all about lush abundance, earthy elegance, and vintage sophistication.
The inspiration behind this shoot and the majority of my designs is my woodland garden, set against the backdrop of a natural Carolinian forest. I wanted to do something different, inspired by nature, free-form, lush designs, not forced into an unnatural shape. I tried to use as much as I could from my garden: Peonies, ferns, moss, fallen branches covered in lichens. What came to mind was a Midsummer Night's Dream bride, and my model, Vanessa, embodied that perfectly. She and the entire team brought that to life. The vintage gown fit her perfectly.
