Sometimes, you have an idea in your head and something you want to portray, but you know that you can't do it alone.  This goes hand in hand with weddings as well!  So, I teamed up with Ashley from Ashley Victoria Photography and Shannon from Fiore, and together, the three of us turned an idea into SO much more than that!  I am so excited to share this styled shoot with you today - it is filled with gorgeous lace details, oysters as placecards, and even a cockatoo as a ring bearer, and we all feel that it turned out so beautiful because we worked great together as a team and the end result turned into an amazing shoot that I hope inspires you to think outside of the box for your own wedding!  Enjoy this little piece of happiness that is The Lacy Oyster!

I loved creating this wreath.  The front entryway was already inviting, but this wreath added the perfect romantic touch to make it an inviting space right from the moment you stepped onto the front porch.

The bouquet and boutonniere were stunning!  Fiore filled them with calla lilies, ranunculus, spray roses, peonies, and so many more beautiful elements!

The gorgeous set from Bere Jewelers, including a wedding set with Hearts on Fire diamonds, was stunning!

This invitation suite is still one of my favorites.  With ribbon, pearls, vellum, handcut envelopes all tying the details in together, it was so much fun to make!

The bride's getting ready room was gorgeous! Including a gorgeous restroom to get ready in and a tub with champagne to sip on and relax, the whole setup was incredibly relaxing for our bride for the day.

The cocktail area was set up to include specialty cocktail drinks for him and her - favorites of the bride and groom, which were "the Manhattan" and a "Champagne Sparkler".

The cake are served as a placecard setting area as well.  Complete with a pink cake stand, this cake was designed with pearls, oysters, and petals to complete the look!

The ceremony space took my breath away.  Shannon created a one-sided arch on site, and used so many elements to make it incredibly beautiful.  Incorporating crepe myrtle for the base, tapered candles, candlesticks, oyster trail, and a lot of greenery, this intimate backyard ceremony space was one of my favorites to date.  Adding in the vintage chairs from Hemstitch was another gorgeous detail!

And yes, we even had a cockatoo to be our ring bearer.  We had a floral collar designed for him to hold the rings, but he kept wanting to eat them - so we decided to let him be in there for the cute factor instead!

The sweetheart table was set up on the back porch of the house, with three lace tablecloths, vintage champagne, and the bride's bouquet placed on the mantle to give it special detail.  The setting was completed with a large pearl and oyster centerpiece, and many other unique elements!

At the end of the evening, our bride and groom left in a vintage Bronco that had been fully restored to it's original beauty.  It was a perfect end to the day!
