We are so excited to have been a part of Every Last Detail Blog’s 5th Blogiversary Celebration! Lauren of ELD asked V-List members (which we are honored to be V-List members) to collaborate and use elements from her brand to create inspiration shoots for brides – so we teamed up with one of our friends and faves, Kelly of Kelly Hancock Event Planning to create this inspiration shoot!
It all started with the silhouettes from ELD’s logo and we ran from there. Since we are in Southwest Florida a large majority of the weddings we photograph are on the beach with palm trees – so we wanted to inspire Florida brides to see beyond that. How could we bring a Napa Valley vineyard/barn wedding to Florida? That was our goal!! It needed to be elegant, organic, and classic without going rustic at all.
From Kelly: “The point of inspiration shoots is to give real couples ideas that they can incorporate into their own wedding day and I truly think we achieved that with this shoot. We took a farm in Florida and were able to achieve the feel of a Napa winery. We chose a color palette of white and gray with a little bit of gold trim on the dishes and stuck to natural elements for decor and details. The dress from The White Magnolia was perfection with its delicate tulle and illusion top. It fit our vision perfectly and was lightweight and comfortable for our bride to wear outside. I am obsessed with the invitation suite that The Magnolia Tree Paperie came up with. Not to mention the slate place cards and the bread bag menus! I am a lover of unexpected details and I think those place cards and menu bags fit the bill! She also did an excellent job on our bride and groom signs which we paired with the silhouettes again to carry on that theme. Another favorite detail of mine was the wine and cheese pairing station. Nothing says “Napa” better than local wine and cheese during cocktail hour. And can I just mention the cake for a second? Hands on Sweets hand painted this beauty and I wanted to take it home. Watercolor cakes are my favorite at the moment and they did an incredible job bringing my vision to life. The table itself might be my absolute favorite element of this shoot. Taylormade Floral and Event Decor did an outstanding job (as always!) and Kate Ryan Linens provided the perfect compliment to the florals and the rentals by A Chair Affair. Those french country chairs were a must on Tiffany’s list for this shoot and A Chair Affair came through for us in the best way. I am so thankful because they really are perfection!”
So enjoy the inspiration from this shoot and to see more head over to Every Last Detail blog!!
