2010 in Review – Collaborations with Kio Kreations

Some more blog love going out to Kristen today! So far in 2010 I have done four different themed shoots with Kio Kreations. (with the help of numerous other vendors that I will share below).

It all started with a message back in February. I thought it was awesome that a fresh flower florist was open to the idea of an alternative bouquet. That isn’t always the case! Over time, Kristen and I talked about indie bridal shows, projects we were working on and life in general.

For quite awhile I was working on some ideas for a styled shoot. I was just having a problem finding vendors and taking that step to make it a reality. One day it just clicked and I knew I had to ask Kristen if she was interested. It was like I opened the creative heavens! I think this is a great direction for RBK Creations. It gives a bride/party planner/etc so many more options. Not everyone wants a full alternative bouquet. Why not combine the fresh and the alternative together!

I have had so many new ideas since working with Kristen! Let me know you some of our work!!

The first shoot was two different bouquets and taken on two different days. There was a lush, romantic bouquet with button and felt stems. All of the bouquets were arranged by Kristen ofKio Kreations. With the stems from RBK Creations. All photos were taken by Tara Etrheim!

This bouquet was huge and absolutely beautiful!

The next part of this shoot was a bright, playful theme. There were two bouquets and a boutonniere. These bouquets also used the button and felt stems.

The colors are so much fun! Love!

It has been a great collaboration! I can’t wait to see what we come up with next.

The next photo shoot we did was a Christmas theme, without getting cheesy. It was Victorian, lush and amazing. The best part about it, even though there was a bridal bouquet created, the table setup could easily be done for a holiday party. There were numerous DIY projects that were written in detail so you can try it yourself. I recently posted a bunch of photos of this shoot so I will just post one more!

The latest shoot was perhaps my favorite. However, I can’t share it with you yet! Yes, I know, teasing is not nice. You will just have to wait a week or so! We are also working on a lot more shoots. 2011 will be another great year for the RBK + Kio team! Keep an eye out.
