April’s Styled Shoot was the largest and most incredible yet! I got the chance to work with over 13 amazing vendors from rings to decor and more. This group worked so hard to help make the vision a reality down to buying the model shoes and while it was definitely challenging at times, it was more than worth all the effort.
Our theme was garden meets the sea. We wanted a tropical feel at a non tropical location. I absolutely love the giant bouquets our florist created and we worked from there to incorporate pinks, oranges, greens, and blues throughout the shoot. We also wanted a clean and modern feel so we opted for solids, clean lines, and white backdrops. The bride and groom were so sweet to work with and just got married in real life last Sunday (Congrats!). Our bridal party consisted of fellow wedding planners and another soon to be wed couple. Needless to say this group was a blast.
My favorite details in the shoot include the sea glass place card details, the golden pineapple lawn bowling game for cocktail hour (what better lawn game is there??), the wrought iron and glass tables, and the florals. Because of last minute complications with vendor availability, I made all of the centerpiece florals (and burnt the heck out of my finger making them) and am pretty proud of how they turned out. I also created the blackberry, watermelon, and blueberry skewers (which were delicious by the way!). All in all this shoot pushed each vendor to work hard and it turned into something we all found pretty amazing. I hope you enjoy!
