Hi belles! Apologies for the delayed start today – let’s just call it a continuance of Memorial Day weekend, okay? I had such an exciting week last week that I can’t wait to tell you about, but the two highlights were the National Stationery Show and producing the first shoot for Southern Weddings V5 (whoo!). Y’all know we can’t give away too much until the issue debuts in the fall, but I have to share a few sneak peeks with you!
The ladies from Poppies & Posies were on site to style our flowers, and it was such a treat to see everything come to life under their talented hands! A big part of their signature style is incorporating fruits and herbs, so that’s what the apples were for. They also have an AMAZING collection of styling and prop items that they shared with us, which must be a huge bonus for their brides!
On the left is Jen Huang, the fabulous photographer who captured everything on film for us. It was my first time working with her, and she was wonderful! You can also see a tiny corner of our table with linens from La Tavola. We’ve used them several times before, but I’m always delighted again by how sumptuous they are in person! On the right is a VERY small detail shot of the AMAZING sugar flower cake that Emily from Lael Cakes put together for the shoot. I am dying over not being able to show you any more from her creation, because it was just that beautiful!!
Above you can see a little glimpse of the environment we were shooting against (pretty!) as well as a few more of Emily’s delicious treats. On the right is McKenzie Miller and her assistant. McKenzie is putting together a behind the scenes film from our shoot, which I can’t wait to share with you all!
Lastly, I just had to show y’all these little guys. Many of the vendors brought their dogs to the shoot, and they were all so cute!
We had some rain in the afternoon, which meant we were all racing around a bit more than usual, so I didn’t get a chance to snap any sneak peeks of our models, but I would be remiss not to give a shout out to Lauren, Christen, and Danielle, as well as Jacqueline and Jeff, our bride and groom, who were fantastic!! It was so nice to meet y’all!
Can’t wait to share a bit more in a few months!
