My Flower Project
My flower project feels like everything I've been interested in coming together for one exploration. I've always had a romantic look at marriage and weddings. I always thought I would get married 10 times just to have as many celebrations as I could. Three years ago, my senior thesis was based on memories, and creating moments that wouldn't decay. The first piece of this project was creating a copper and enamel bouquet that referenced my mothers bridal flower arrangement. Three years later, I'm finally finishing that piece by photographing myself in her wedding dress holding the bouquet I made. The next pieces are consisting of dresses I have found in thrift shops and then making bouquets to go with them, and documented through a photoshoot together. I hope this leads to brides reaching out to me to create their bridal bouquets. The bouquets will serve as a beautiful moment from their big day that will never fade.
