Citrus Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for The Komans
Named Best of 2017, Style Me Pretty

I’m so excited this portfolio shoot for The Komans was named as one of the “Best of 2017” shoots. I was inspired by the annual blooming of citrus blossom that happens every spring in Santa Barbara. For decor, I foraged lemon on the branch with citrus blossom (this had to be the best smelling shoot ever) which Coco Rose Design then incorporated into the floral arrangements on the table and in the bouquet. Susan Silverberg created a lemon themed invitation with a beautiful line drawing of citrus which I styled with gorgeous citrine earrings from 33 Jewels and more lemon on the branch.

For the bridal styling, I was inspired by the slightly Spanish feel to Musat’s wedding dresses. I chose a bold red lip and a sleek hairstyle featuring retro finger waves that gathered into a chic and modern chignon by Kohnur. For the ceremony look, the custom dress featured a full skirt, billowy sleeves and a modern take on lace that I absolutely loved. For jewelry, I chose simple yellow Citrine earrings (don’t they look like candy?) which caught and reflected the light. And for the ring, an insane flower ring made by local jeweler, 33 Jewels.

For the tabletop design, it was all about color and I picked La Tavola’s new velvet runners in “Golden” as the base for the table. Simple white and clear place settings from Pretty Vintage Rentals and my brass goblets made up the placesettings. And for a unique place card idea, I placed the name card underneath the clear plate with some citrus leaves and individual lilac blooms. Lush floral arrangements in terra cotta compotes featured featuring citrus on the branch, nasturtium, orchids, and parrot tulips. In between, I placed taper candles from Creative Candles in cafe au lait and then scattered lemon in between.

Finally, what’s a better way to use lemons than to make a lemon kumquat cocktail?

Lemon Kumquat Cocktail Recipe:

.5 oz Cutler vodka

.75 oz Homemade kumquat cordial (or St. Germain)

1oz Meyer lemon juice

Large Pinch Earthtrine Farm fresh tarragon

Combine in shaker, shake vigorously, double stain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a tarragon sprig and a Meyer lemon twist.

A special thanks to the Santa Barbara Historical Museum for hosting the shoot and all the vendors who contributed!

Midcentury Modern Meets Old World Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for Booth Photographics
as seen on Style Me Pretty

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Booth Photographics | Mid century meets old world wedding inspiration by wedding stylist Kelly Oshiro

Last year, I  produced and styled this wedding editorial for Booth Photographics portfolio. They requested a unique styled shoot, inspired by a modern couple who loves both mid-century design and old world elegance. For the bride, I chose an elegant Delphine Manivet wedding pantsuit from Solstice Bride paired with handmade modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry, and a sleek ponytail by Studio mm&b. For our groom, a timeless white dinner jacket were paired with velvet loafers, all from The Black Tux. I also pulled designers sunglasses from Gogosha Optique for a few sleek and modern wedding portraits.

Dinner for this intimate elopement was setup on the beautiful balcony of this turn of the century mansion. Modern black and tan bentwood chairs from Yeah! Rentals were paired with a gray velvet linen from La Tavola and the place settings were decidedly modern with marble plates from The Ark and a plated fig salad. Twig and Twine created a loose, organic arrangement in moody fall colors with smoke bush, chocolate cosmos and garden roses. Simple gold taper holders from CB2 held traditional bee’s wax candles. An understated tiered cake from Lele Patisserie was decorated with fall foliage and individual hyacinth blooms. You can see more of this editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.
