I’m extremely excited to share with you this styled shoot collaboration! It started with Bonny Bridal and a new dress from their Spring 2012 line. They made plans to host a big giveaway for a lucky bride which would include this particular gown and lots of other items including an original Tessa Kim headpiece, an antique brooch bouquet from Blue Petyl, gorgeous invites by Jen Simpson Design, adorable paddle signs by Little Retreats, and a stunning banner by Joyful Joyful.
While the planning took shape, a theme was introduced. The gown felt classically vintage in a very old Hollywood way. So we recruited the incredibly talented wedding and event planner, Erin Berenda to dream up a styled shoot that would dazzle us! (Cheesy, I know.)
Between us, we assembled a team that did an amazing job! We began at The Jones Victorian Wedding Estate with the lovely Michelle who is the owner and coordinator for the estate. She also provided the awesome gold flatware! Miso from Miso Bakes put together an incredible dessert table complete with cake, cakepops, chocolate truffles, sugar cookies and cupcakes. Yes, yes we did eat them when we were done :) The lovely umbrellas were provided by Bella Umbrella, definitely one of my favorite touches. Beautiful antique china provided by A Belle Affaire. Gorgeous florals were provided by Flower Allie.
Our models Sarah & Cody were incredibly sweet and worked it! Sarah was beautified by hair and makeup stylist, Brooke, from A Pretty You. Who I think did an incredible job by the way!
Sarah you are absolutely stunning! And that amazing Tessa Kim headpiece was perfect!
Mr. & Mrs. banner by Joyful Joyful on Etsy!
Jen did an amazing job designing these invitations to go with the vintage theme!
If you can see, Brooke designed Sarah’s hair in pin curls that wrapped around the side of her head. I kinda freaked out on it, LOVED it!
Yes, that is a Bentley. :)
You guys are too cute!
The new dream team! Well, we were missing a few wonderful people who were a part of the shoot. I think Michelle & Kerrie were chatting about all things weddings :) And of course Jay was taking the picture!
