I had a goal in mind when I started creating the design theme for this styled shoot. Being an event designer I wanted this styled shoot to scream vibrant, fun and bold. I believe so many couples are afraid to use bright colors on their special day. I live for decorating and styling an event with color. My design inspirations come from nature, lots of color, and unique decor props and pieces. I believe that's where I fit into the equation here, making sure all the individual pieces come together flawlessly. Correctly executed, colors can be an amazing decorative statement at any event. The shoot was only as good as the amazing vendors I collaborated with. The photographer, Charity Hedges, always brightens the room with her smile. Charity works her camera in many ways snapping such incredible images. This shoot was all about the details and details was exactly what Charity shot! Capturing the model's facial expressions told THE story, her wedding story of emotions and flashbacks of her very own wedding in the very same dress. Truly amazing!
Meredith, our model had such a bubbly personality that tied the whole shoot together. Her spirit was so fun yet beautiful and elegant. What a perfect match with the themed decor. Her willingness to be our bride at the last minute saved the day. Meredith even opened her preserved wedding dress box for such the occasion, how thoughtful, right? This opportunity allowed her a chance to put her own wedding dress back on. It was such a thrill to her especially after three years. From the floral design to the decorative throw pillows, I wanted to convey a nontraditional tone. Thinking outside the soft palette box, a multicolored range was perfect for this late summer wedding shoot. Customized menus and escort cards from Octane Design Studios added a personal touch. The gold metallic foil on the folded escort cards polished those extra finishing details. Using the rose bench and hutton chairs from Canvas Event Furniture gave a unique way to mix the textures, while adding dimension to the raw edged bark wood table. The rainbow garnished floral centerpieces created by Stems, LLC added zest to this bright tablescape. Bonnie has the perfect eye for getting it just just right! We absolutely loved everything about this shoot.
