Crooked Willow Photoshoot Part 1

I can't even contain my excitement about sharing these pictures!  This photoshoot was the brain child of a random day when Rachel of Talia Events and I were totally inspired by the burnt orange fabric on one of the comfy chairs at Starbucks...And this is what happens when you get a couple of designer girls talking about burnt orange comfy chairs!  

Once we got Becky Young Photography on board, we knew we had to incorporate more wedding professionals to create details that would rock our socks off.  So we roped in Mike & Summer from Rising Moon to capture the day by video, Janine from Makeup By Janine to do incredible model-esque makeup, Julie from JS Design to design custom invitations/RSVPS/place cards/table numbers that will blow you away, Adrienne from Bebe & Boo to bring her outstanding custom bridal jewelry, and Rachael from Girls & Curls to do amazing hair and make sure each veil or hairpiece sat just right.  Oh, and did I mention that Swept Away Bridal let us borrow five gorgeous wedding gowns and a ton of unique veils...bird cage veils, veils with feathers, sparkly hair pieces, the whole nine yards...This was an absolute dream team.  Oh, and the flowers?  I did them (:

The folks at Crooked Willow Farms were kind enough to let us use their amazing new wedding venue as the perfect backdrop to our shoot.  I love this venue and loved the snow on the ground.  So rustic elegant!  Enjoy these pics, more to come...

If you're wondering what type of flower this is, it is a orange parrot tulip.  Some of my favorite little spring flowers.  With lily grass loops and eucalyptus seeds.  

 

French and Parrot tulip bouquet with ti-leaf loops.  

Loved this invitation Julie designed with a monogram fit into a locket as a charm.  Love it.

Isn't this a great idea?  Place cards in a tiny little box on top of a bed of beads?  Julie, you're a genius!

My absolute favorite design...love the inside of this envelope!

Beth & Michael

If there is one thing that I passionately believe about wedding style, it's that the details are what make it fabulous. This is absolutely what I loved about Beth & Michael's Wedding!  For example, Beth's bouquet was hand-tied with a piece of vintage lace from her mother's wedding gown (with sixpence hand-sewn into the lace!).  Another fav of mine: when a consistent theme and color palate run throughout the event.  From the invitation, flowers, and wedding party attire to the escort cards, linens, and chair covers, Beth's theme of lime and cantaloupe (colors with a "pop") ran throughout.  

Besides my appreciation of Beth's wedding style, I loved working with her as a person!  Beth was so much fun and was a beautiful person on her wedding day, both inside and out! I also have to mention the amazing line-up of vendors that really made this wedding a success:

David Gaston of Gaston Photography (Can't say enough good about David.  His work is amazing.  But beyond that, brides love working with him because he is really fun and relaxed!)

Tamara with Chair Covers and Linens (Love the sage chair ties!)

Elegant Bakery made the amazing cake in the photo below...again, see the consistent theme?

Enjoy these awesome pics!

Nicole & Mike's Wedding

Nicole and Mike's wedding was an honor to be a part of for several reasons! But here are the main ones: First, Nicole is one of my very best friends in the world. We have been friend's for 8 years through high school, college, and beyond. I adore her family and have enjoyed watching her romance with Mike! Second: Nicole has killer style! She had vision for a beautiful peacock blue bridesmaid dress with contrasting orange flowers. The gorgeous girl in the photo below is Alli, her sister, and another best bud of mine.

Enjoy the rich colors and unique use of textures we used for her flowers including oranges, peacock feathers, dahlias, mokara orchids, and cockscomb.  Congrats Nicole and Mike!
