Hello, inspiration! This styled shoot was featured recently on Every Last Detail and I am so excited to share the images of these beauties with you here as well .... the creativity by all involved is absolutely awe-inspiring, and there were so many beautiful details weaved into every piece. I tried hard to choose a favorite, but between the protea flowers or the stunning gown, the carefully hand-deckled edging included on the invitation or the delicate details incorporated into the cake design, I love every single detail.
The Beautiful Beginnings Bridal Expo, put on by the Bridal Loft in Pensacola, Florida, is something I look forward to every year as a wedding planner. There are so many brides that I get to chat with, and I love it. I get to see the excitement in their eyes, hear what they have planned for their wedding day, sometimes hear proposal stories, and I also get to chat with vendors both that I have worked with numerous times, and meet new ones as well. It is something I look forward to every January, and am so glad to get to be a part of it every year.
I am so excited to be sharing this styled shoot with you today! I am so blessed to have amazing vendors who understand my creative mind, and I love so many different pieces about this shoot that my heart soared when it was featured on Style Me Pretty. So many different things come together for a styled shoot - usually you have one element that spurs it, and as your idea develops, it grows and changes and adapts. For me, this one item was a rose gold sequin table runner. One of my brides used a rose gold sequin linen for her wedding in March, and the minute that I saw it and felt it in my hands, I was hooked.
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!
