I’m super excited to have my wheat headdress grace the cover of this month’s issue of Mag Rouge. Shot by the uber talented Elizabeth Messina, and produced by the Wedding Chicks, it was so much fun to create these beautiful images.
To make the head wreath I started with a circular base of wire (similar to the clematis headdress). Then using green floral wire, I created a little bundles of 5 stems of wheat each. Then I attached the bundles to the wire base, working around the circle. To hide the construction, I hot glued additional pieces of wheat to cover the wire and make the head wreath more full.
Also during this shoot, Jeni from Found brought one of her amazing vintage carts and I filled it with flowers for a slightly Anthropologie-vibe.
I also brought an amazing stephanotis vine as option for Elizabeth to shoot (I’m a big fan of options). Isn’t the vine insane?
And finally, the two bouquets I made as options for the model to hold (its all about options). The one of the left is made with cabbage roses, ranunuclus, sweat pea and dusty miller. The one on the right, had peach roses, hydranga, sweet pea, ranunuclus, and dried wheat (I took the extra long strans off of the wheat for this bouquet). And be sure to visit here and here for even more prettiness.
