As a visual story teller, I strive to organically capture the true essence of a person’s craft in a hands off approach. For this shoot, I featured Winter Park floral designer Mary Stonecypher Maslow. One sunny, late summer morning, I captured her work, from gathering in the woods through pruning and crafting, all the way to the finished arrangement. I joined Mary as she foraged wild muscadine grape vine and maple tree foliage from a patch of swampy, Florida woods surrounding a near by lake. To craft her arrangements, she brought her foraged bounty to one of Winter Park’s oldest landmarks, the Winter Park Country Club. There she combined her bounty with vibrant colors of locally grown roses and wildflowers. In her work, Mary strives to showcase the beauty and bounty of Florida flowers. Noting especially, the amazing growing capabilities of the state, and its unique opportunity to grow an array of floral varieties year round. Brides, I think she offers something really unique for florals! Check out Mary here , & more of her awesome florals from The B Project here.
