This post is long overdue. Like, more than a year.
Yeah, sorry… That happened last year.
Anyway, I’m trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon. Starting here. With one of my favorite photo shoots I’ve done to date. My Modern Rustic Snow White Inspiration Shoot from June 2012!
This shoot grew out of the Inspired Bridal Bowl table that Desiree of Penny Blooms Floral Design and I did together. We played with moss and wood, added in some pops of white and red, and created a fun and whimsical look. Of course, we had to step it up once we made it a “proper” photo shoot. So we called on a little help from our friends. 🙂
We had no less than ten wedding vendors, a fantastic venue, and a couple of amazing boutiques involved in this shoot, plus a couple of seriously gorgeous models. Throw in perfect San Diego weather, and I guess it’s no wonder that this shoot has been featured on Lover.ly, Every Last Detail, and San Diego Style Weddings!
Nic.Roc.Designs created some AMAZING stationery (including this fabulous wooden invitation!).
And of course we had a sweets buffet replete with goodies, from the INSANELY beautiful cake (OMG mini frames!) by Hey There, Cupcake!…
To the apple cake pops and cake ball gems by Calculated Whisk…
To the marbled macarons by La Reine des Macarons
To the delectable (and beautiful!) apple pie pops and mini mason jar pies from Wicked Spoon!
Of course, putting it all together was fun…
Then of course there were Desiree’s florals. Seriously, Penny Blooms Floral Design is one of my favorite vendors for a variety of reasons… But one of the biggest is because she isn’t afraid to play around with different ideas, try different things, go out on a limb, and be downright creative. We always talk about creativity and innovation in our business, but Desiree consistently does it. And pushes me to, as well. 🙂
And the ombre dress – absolute perfection – from Bliss Bride:
And our handsome groom’s suit, from A Better Deal Designer Tuxedo and Suit Rentals:
Of course, our models – Taylor and Ben – aren’t too shabby either.
Scratch that. They are gorgeous!!!!!!
We hung frames and mirrors from the trees…
And cut slits into apples to use as place card holders…
Didn’t skimp out on details…
Ooh, you can see the edge of her phenomenal dress in this shot! 😉
At the end of the day, we were just seriously blessed by all the stunning pieces to this photo shoot. This is still one of my very favorite projects I’ve gotten to work on. Ever.
We’ve been trying to get the same team back together for another round… But due to unfortunate timing it hasn’t worked out. Cross your fingers for a second fairy tale fabulous photo shoot!
Oh yes… And don’t forget to check out the film!!!!
