My friend Renee with Madison Wedding Flowers and I met through this great little creative community called The Rising Tide. I don't remember how I found out about this Facebook group but the idea of "Community over Competition" really resonated with me early on. Jordan and I quickly found the local expression of The Rising Tide here in Madison, WI and realized they meet once a month. Creatives all over the area - some wedding photographers, event planners, florists, custom wedding dress designers... creativity seeping out of every corner of this group. 

Back to Renee, I met her through this Tuesdays Together group here in Madison and instantly felt like I really liked who she was/is as a person. It's only an added bonus that she creates these floral pieces that give me heart eyes for days! So when she mentioned having some peonies left over from a wedding and photographing some pieces for her, I was all about it! Take a look at these amazing florals and those herb crowns! Yes please. Renee, you're amazing. Thank you for letting me go to town photographing your floral arrangements!
