The flowers by Vintage Soul Floral were a large and integral part of the shoot. They were moody and edgy, a coordination of deep jewel tones. We instantly noticed two cast members from Married at First Sight Season 9 in the shoot, Iris Caldwell and Amber Bowles. They both looked stunning in their black dresses!
