So remember when I went to St. Louis back in December? And how I was so freezing cold?! Well, this inspiration shoot is the product of one of my freezing cold days there! I was able to work with my good friend Katie of Simply and Forever to design and style this modern, elegant inspiration shoot for you all. Because let’s face it- I honestly, can’t go anywhere without doing an inspiration shoot nowadays! ;) Katie brought in some fabulous St. Louis wedding pros, some of which included ELV paper pro Ten Four Paper, the amazing Laura Ann Miller Photography and the venue we shot at, Kuh’s Farm!
My favorite part of this shoot is that we designed it to be a reflection of the Simply and Forever brand- a little something that I like to call a “branding shoot”. We paired red, pink and gold with a modern and elegant style to bring the Simply and Forever style and brand to life. From gilded bud vases and trefoil-shaped elements to olive oil favors, Simply and Forever was clearly evident in every aspect- just like a bride and groom’s personalities should be incorporated for a wedding!
Oh and did you catch the trefoil-shaped table number and Mr & Mrs signs? And the escort cards on the glasses? Of course details like that are always my absolute favorite things!! :)
I was SO excited to be able to meet AND work with other ELV pros on this shoot- I wish I could do it all the time!! Be sure to check out the ELV listings for Laura Ann Miller Photography, Simply and Forever and Ten Four Paper!! And a big thank you to everyone for coming out in the freezing cold rain to create this gorgeous shoot!
A little note: As you may have noticed above, this shoot was designed to be a reflection of the Simply and Forever brand- a little something that I like to call a “branding shoot”. For vendors, it’s a beautiful thing- photos that are 100% totally and completely their brand- plus, they’re great for ads! :) I absolutely LOVE doing them, so if you’re a wedding pro and you’re interested in a branding shoot, let me know!
So now tell me… what’s your favorite part of this shoot?! The colors? The details? The paper goods? There has to be something that YOU love as much as I love the details!! :)
