Ethereal Blush & French Blue Wedding Inspiration

August 8, 2019


Ethereal Blush & French Blue Wedding Inspiration

I’ve had this idea for a styled shoot at Stone Tower Winery since January really but it was so cool watching it come to life with an AMAZING vendor team for the wedding photography workshop this past month! First, a HUGE thank you to Stone Tower Winery for allowing us their space to really bring the styled shoot to life! This shoot is a bit different than most in the sense that we actually had TWO planners that helped out with this! I came to Angelica with the Pinterest board and vision for the shoot and she quickly helped break down the overall vision into specifics of what we would need, what would look good while making our own spin on the general theme and some great vendors to reach out to! However, as the workshop date moved, the styled shoot date also moved and she wasn’t able to help with the day of execution! Enter in Elise who jumped in about 2 weeks before the shoot took place and helped really hone in the last pieces, style everything on the day of and make sure that everything came together beautifully!

We found the most perfect dress from Modern Trousseau thanks to Kelly, had a beautiful invitation suite made by Liz Lyons Lettering as well as calligraphed ribbon which really added to Spring Vale Florals beautiful bouquet! Also, everyone was DYING over how beautiful the centerpiece that Kory did up for the table!! MS Rentals from Charlottesville provided us an incredible table setup styled by Elise! And Gabby and Martha made sure Marla and Dustin looked incredible for the day! I loved seeing everything come together on the morning of the shoot! I know I’ll be using these images for years and years to come and I hope to work with all the vendors again soon 🙂
