Oh my goodness- I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited/nervous/giddy to post a shoot as I am about this one today!!! I’ll back up a little bit though first. Perhaps you remember an inspiration board from a few months ago, and my mention of it being the inspiration for a “little something” I was working on with my fellow wedding blogger friend Megan of Glamour and Grace? Well, we teamed up with Jessica Lorren Photography and some fabulous wedding pros and brands to turn that inspiration board into some REAL inspiration for you all! And here it is- in all of it’s chic, beachy, absolutely gorgeous, SHOT ALL ON FILM, glory!
Whenever I design photo shoots, I always like to have two “looks” for the tablescape- a higher end look (usually more floral-intensive) and a cost-effective look (usually some sort of DIY)… to achieve “maximum amounts of realistic inspiration”. ;) All of the images in my feature here are focused around the floral tablescape, and Glamour and Grace is featuring the DIY tablescape!
Have you noticed the gold shells used throughout? We wanted to incorporate a beachy style without going route of the overdone “beach” theme that we always see here in Florida, and pretty gold shells were the answer! We decided to use different types of shells as the table “indicators”. Escort cards featuring gorgeous gold calligraphy were attached to various gold shells, bringing to life the concept that guests would match their shells to their tables.
Here’s a little peek of the “other half” of the shoot, but after you see it, you definitely have to go over to Glamour and Grace to see the rest…
Our theme of “natural beach chic” was embodied so very well in this shoot. Natural elements, pale pink and gold accents, and a beautiful beach setting were all a perfect combination. Oh and like I mentioned in the beginning of the post- all of this gorgeousness was photographed on FILM by Jessica Lorren Photography- you can head over to her blog to see a few more of the images! I just LOVE the film, don’t you?!
A huge thank you to all the vendors who contributed and helped us bring our inspiration to life for you all! A super special thank you to our models Ashley and Blake- friends of mine who recently got engaged and are one of the most gorgeous, adorable, and in love couples I know! :) And if you haven’t already gone over to Glamour and Grace to see the rest of the shoot, head on over there… but only after you comment and tell me what your favorite part of this shoot is! What do you think?! ;)
