So I mentioned over on Facebook that I had recently teamed up with local vendors for a special project, well, this is the result of that project! Some of my local photography peeps and I have done a styled shoot before and decided we should do another one! So, as me and Jaime of Beloved Snapshots Photography were hanging out downtown we walked into FORAGE , a consignment boutique , to see if we would find any inspiration there. Luckily, we did! We a simple, yet beautiful vintage wedding dress. We loved the gold thread woven throughout the dress we were sold! The dress was our starting point followed by many text messages, and pins on pinterest to come up with the vision for our shoot.
Next, the location, I happen to love Sneads Asperagus Farm and thought it would be perfect for a Winter wedding shoot!
Then, we began to contact vendors we knew or found on the internet to partner with us on our project. I was so thrilled we I received and email back from Karoline of Faithful Flowers saying she would love to be apart of our shoot! I worked with Karoline early this past year taking pictures of her lovely table bouquets for a party in Richmond and she was the first person that came to mind when we began this project! She is such a sweet person, I love her enthusiasm and her creativity when it comes to her floral work. She provided us with an amazon bouquet , table garland and a sweet little headpiece for our bride! If you need florals for your event , you need to contact FAITHFUL FLOWERS.
Okay, so the icing on the cake was Nana Frema of Luxury Treats Galore! She contacted me a few weeks before our shoot not related to the shoot at all, but once I told her about she was in! She came and delivered more then I could have imagined! A lovely dessert table filled with sweets, that yes, we did get to enjoy after =) !
We had so much fun with Carley & Nick, our fantastic models, shooting all the way through sunset! There was a lot a laughter and plenty of sweets to go around!
We had so many great vendors please go check out their websites and Facebook pages, I have linked them below. If you have an event you are planning be sure to contact them! These vendors not only provide great products and services, they are some of the kindest people you will meet!
Have a lovely evening =)
