Thanksgiving is almost here, friends! I'm thrilled to share this styled shoot with you all inspired by the holiday. Not only am I incredibly thankful for my job, but I'm also incredibly thankful that I get to work with talented people such as Poppy Love Weddings to make shoots like this one come together! She did an amazing job (as usual!) with the tablescape details and floral arrangements. And how cute are those plates?! Thanks to our great couple who modeled for us as well -- their moments captured here are so precious. :)
Here's to hoping you can enjoy these pictures as much as I did, and to hoping that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Last month I had the opportunity to collaborate with some talented vendors on a romantic fall inspired shoot, and let me tell you, I can't get over how gorgeous it turned out! With help from Wild Folk Studio on florals and design, Winifred Paper on the invitations and custom backdrop, and Sweet Tales Cake Boutique on the delicious and quaint cake, we were able to create a perfectly intimate backdrop for the shoot. And let's not forget about our fabulous couple who modeled for us...there is a whole lot of pretty from them down below. Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did, friends!
We are so excited to finally share this inspired wedding styled shoot with you! Back in March, we teamed together with a fabulous handful of vendors to make this shoot come to life. Here's a little bit of back story from Phebe of Making Me Events: My approach to wedding design is simple, tell a great story. Vintage place settings, jaw-droppingly gorgeous flowers, handmade accessories which included paper tassels and painted silverware, custom design stationary, and much much more help to pull this beautiful shoot together.
This wedding styled story begins with a healthy dose of playful and pretty by combining whimsical colors like pink, teal, gold and black and ends with one happy team of vendors and fast new friends! Don’t take my word for it! Pour through each and every beautiful picture and get inspired!

As we mentioned in our blog post yesterday, brides can do little things here and there to make their wedding stand out, and they don't have to be crazy expensive projects to do so! For example, in our styled shoot we thought that adding ribbon décor would be a nice touch to the Bride and Groom chairs. This décor is very affordable and extremely easy to make. We’ve included the DIY instructions below along with pictures as an example.
DIY for Ribbon Decor
Materials - multiple colors and textures of ribbon, whatever fits your wedding color scheme - roll of twine or yarn that can be tied securely to the chair back - scissors - hot glue gun
Instructions Step 1: Cut the ribbon to your desired length.
Step 2: Lay out your ribbon pattern, alternating between colors and textures.
Step 3: Using a hot glue gun, fold one end of the ribbon (about ¾ of an inch) over your twine/yarn, and glue ribbon together.
Step 4: Repeat until you have glued all strands of ribbon, and as quick as that, you are done!
