Well you if frequent wedding blogs a lot you most likely saw the lovely post that Style Me Pretty did on this gorgeous shoot I got to be a part of last Friday! Abby called the shoot “Vintage Desert Chic” and I quite like the name she gave it! Megan Hartley, who took all the beautiful photos, asked me to be a part of the shoot and I jumped at the chance. The inspiration board that Whitney, from Whit Mitt Design & Events, had come up with was breathtaking and I knew the shoot would be gorgeous! I actually went to school with both of these ladies and I even got to do the desserts for Whitney’s lovely wedding! She had now gone into the wedding business as well and I think she has quite the talent for it!
I love the DIY projects that came out of this shoot…so creative!
How adorable are these little boutonnieres that Rosie as a Button made?!?
I can’t wait to have little blake model in some wedding shoots…these two kids are way too cute!
Of course my favorite rental company, Found Vintage Rentals, did the shoot too and their pieces always steal the show!
I love the use of Jeni’s spools mixed with the florals…such a pretty set up for a table.
Art with Nature Floral Design did the stunning florals for the shoot…I absolutely LOVE this bouquet!
For the cake I wanted to veer off of the traditional white wedding cake and do a subtle taupe color for the base. Then we accented the cake with a sugar succulent and some tiny dogwood flowers. For the topper I had Kyong make a ball of yarn and then a tiny spool as well with the bride & groom’s initials etched on it! We also crimped the top of each tier to give it some texture and then wrapped some edible yarn around the base tier.
Since it was a smaller size cake I thought it would be fun to do some cupcakes as well and we accented them with tiny sugar flowers too!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
