Blushing Romance - Styled Shoot

All you need is love ... and donuts! This styled shoot from last Spring has been one of my favorites to date. The love between this sweet, real life couple is so undeniable and the homemade cake donuts added just the right amount of frosting to make this unique wedding dessert display complete.

The vendors that came together for this session truly outdid themselves and showed how a simple, but cohesive look can really help you achieve the wedding day of your dreams. The stunning wedding gown came from an amazing local nonprofit, Free Ever After whose mission is to reach survivors of sexual abuse and exploitation, to cultivate their gifts, talents and abilities, and to empower them to become successful women and history makers. Nicole from True Bliss  created a completely custom invitation box set that included a rose, wax seal that was hand water colored and tied with a raw satin ribbon for a beautiful, finished look. All of this gorgeousness was capture by the lovely and talented Susannah Lynn Photography who I have had the pleasure of collaborating with on multiple occasions, and it is always such a rewarding and pleasant experience. I believe vendors enjoy participating in styled shoots because it allows us to let our creativity run wild, with no limitations. 

When I first met Elizabeth of A Floral Note I knew she would be the perfect fit for this project. Her free-flowing and whimsical aesthetic echos her mantra that flowers should make you pause, tell your story, stop time. I love how the soft colors and shapes of the florals she chose kept with the overall romantic feel of the day.

Our models and real life couple, Carrie and Peter  are so genuine and obviously beautiful, inside and out. It was such a joy to work with them and catch a glimpse into their true life love story.
