Sweet Violet Magazine Cover

Last Summer we worked on a concept shoot around the idea of having one’s closes friends join in a sample party at a bridal boutique. With cake, champagne, flowers, and of course dresses, everyone in a bride’s inner circle could participate in the experience. The results were so beautiful and the color yellow could not have been more perfect. When creating editorials, we have to look ahead past the current colors everyone is mooning over since the publications typically take a year to occur. Yellow hit the spot and was a sunny change that looked absolutely perfect on the cover of Sweet Voilet Magazine’s current issue. There is such a reward in having people respond to the ideas that take so much energy and effort to bring from a concept to reality. The team really pulled it together for a light and airy pairing with a few whimsical elements just for fun. Beautiful dresses and hair and makeup took the center stage as the sun filled boutique provided the perfect venue for a little bridal soiree.

A Beautiful Day! {Style Me Pretty Feature}

It is truly a beautiful day to share some photos we have had to keep to ourselves for some time. That’s the way it works in the publication and editorial business, you must be months ahead of the season and then wait to see your product in its rightful place. We have been thrice featured on Style Me Pretty and this one is just lovely all over. The team deserves full credit, for no one does much alone in the industry, so be sure and look at their sites too for more photographs and their version of the day.
Our story is easy to tell. We had an extremely accommodating venue, great coordination, the perfect stylist, an unparalleled photographer, incredible: cake, flowers, linens, rentals, and a lovely model wearing gorgeous dresses. The shoot was actually in the Winter and it was not easy. I believe the high that day was 40 degrees, not to spoil the magic though, because inside the conservatory it was a perfect temperature. I may even consider one for a future function. What a great idea of having green plants and great weather (indoors) all year round with glass walls and natural lighting!

There will likely be a few more future posts but for now we are overjoyed to be on a wedding style blog like Style Me Pretty and to finally share it with you.

Have a wonderful day!

Romantic Garden Rose Bouquet

Simple bouquet recipes can be just as effective as varieties. This romantic rose bouquet was primarily garden roses and spray garden roses in a bundle surrounded by Magnolia leaves (which have a velvety tobacco colored underside).

The handle was wrapped in silk ribbon and styled by Kristin at Everbloom Designs. Lovely photographs by Annabella Charles Photography.
