Back in May, a few local wedding vendors and I put together a styled shoot, and it was a really great experience! It started with meeting Katie, from August Wolf Floral Design and we both agreed it would be fun to collaborate on a shoot together!   We gathered together some more amazing vendors and created a beautiful shoot to inspire our local brides!! 

I am sooo excited to say this shoot got picked up by Chic Vintage Brides and you can see the post the featured here!!

We were inspired by our venue Rollins Mansion, and its ability to create a french cottage feel, with our lace gown, and floral arrangement. We wanted the key elements to be simple and effortless.

We imagined a girl, getting married on her parents estate, putting on some simple makeup with loose curls, going out to pick the best blooms from her mother’s garden. We then did a second look with a more modern but still romantic twist. A satin gown, blunt bangs and a bob haircut with a darker bold lip.

The flowers are beautiful long stems of greenery, along with some light peachy David Austin roses, french tulips and Moonrise Peonies.

The cake was a light peachy pink, with gold painted edging and cracks, adorned with some greenery and two roses.

The sweetheart table was a simple setup, with a ruffled table runner. Candle sticks, greenery were used to surround the cake and centerpiece.”
