I'm Dreaming of a Boho Christmas

I'm Dreaming of a Boho Christmas

It was this time last summer that Peyton,  a close friend of mine, was visiting from Texas. We met at our local Starbucks and tossed around several ideas for a styled shoot, and in our scattered conversation we found ourselves once again talking about our families, upcoming vacations, and holidays. As we sipped our iced coffees, we got so excited as we talked about Christmas and our plans, but we quickly found ourselves in tears because we were laughing so hard. You see, as we continued to discuss family Christmas traditions, we quickly realized that both of our moms, who are avid lovers of antiques and sometimes junk, have our entire life brought out brightly colored vintage Christmas ornaments each year to decorate our families trees. Although we thought of them as tacky when we were growing up, we now found ourselves creating a photo shoot based on these colorful yet boho vintage pieces.

From there, the idea of "I'm Dreaming of a Boho Christmas" was born. We thought it would be fun to feature as many cherished family items in the shoot as possible. Elements such as my great-aunt's 1930s fur coats, vintage chairs, china plates, and our mom's ornaments can be found amidst the other boho treasures we decided to use. We created what we thought to be the perfect bohemian Christmas wedding. There was a lounge with one of a kind furniture pieces, an air stream strung with colorful Christmas lights and wooden spools to set your coffee on. The newly married couple had dinner for two on the dock with signature cocktails, more twinkle lights, a cake for two, and of course, our Christmas ornaments. Lastly, they would finish the evening reminiscing about the beautiful wedding they just had under the Georgia oak tree that danced with Christmas lights. We hope you love this unique shoot and that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!
