 If you caught Enchanted Earth back in March here is the long awaited follow up shot by uber-talented Bay Area photographer, Aura O'Brien..  Adding earth elements to your look is one path to going green . . . Here we've woven in real and silk foliage combinations.  Below Hana is wearing the Magnolia wreath of silk florals mixed in with sprigs of real ivy.  The neckline of her gown is framed in variegated ivy as smaller pieces are dappled all over the tulle skirt.  If you want to try adding real flowers, leaves or ivy to your gown you can do one of two things: Have a florist do it or get with someone who's handy with a needle.  Sewing live foliage onto a gown isn't rocket science.   If you (or someone else) can bead, you can sew leaves  Just be sure to dry out the leaves/flowers/ivy a couple days before so as not to soil the silk.  Also you want to add all the pieces a couple nights before the wedding . . .
