It’s no secret that I LOVE an awesome inspiration shoot. Heck- it’s why I do them myself all the time! But I also love when fabulous wedding pros get together for inspiration shoots, and most of all, I love sharing them with you! The beauty about inspiration shoots is that they’re things that have been envisioned by those designing the shoot. Often times they’re things that haven’t been done for real weddings yet, but they’re awesome concepts that would be great to use… hence the word *inspiration*! When ELV photographer Ashley Daniell sent me this Southern picnic shoot, I instantly fell in love with it and knew that I absolutely needed to share it with y’all! (Pun totally intended)
A little bit from Ashley and the planner, Shannon of Shannon Reeves Events:
The vendors involved in this styled shoot are from Florida, Texas and Alabama. We like to think we have this Southern thing mastered. Created under giant oaks on the lawn of The Southwood House – an elegant Tallahassee manor dating back to 1865 – this styled shoot captures the wedding of a good old boy and a pretty Southern girl and their innocent, sweet-as-pie love. A “strawberry wine, one-bottle-of-wine-and-two-dixie-cups” kind of love. From the ’53 Chevy truck and the camelias to the sweet tea and real-life newlyweds with the sweetest Georgia accents we’ve ever heard (seriously, we wish we would have videotaped them), everything we love about the South are in these photos!
SO adorable, right y’all? (I just had to say it again.) I love the bunting around the tree at the beginning of the shoot… and the cake bunting too! All of the paper products by A&P Designs are pretty amazing as well! And that bouquet is gorgeous, don’t you think? I KNOW some of you are Southern brides… does any of this inspiration shoot strike your fancy? Have you been inspired for your own wedding this fabulous southern picnic shoot?
