It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!
This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”
You can`t achieve a nautical theme much better than by getting married on a 100` private yacht. Patrice and James did exactly that! They were married by the Captain and wove the sea into all their decor.
This sunny, lovely wedding, features gems such as; Bridesmaids bouquets in shells, personalized napkin rings made from sand dollars, an ice sculpture and even tiki huts and hammocks!
Every wedding should have at least one thing that is extra special and unique. A little something that comes straight from the heart and makes you realize how in love the Bride and Groom really are.
In this sweet wedding it was the vows, letters that spoke of first meetings, hope for the future and in the Groom’s case; his delight that not only would this wedding give him the woman he loved for his Bride, but also her daughter, Isabella, for his own.
This lovely wedding just took place on March 24th in lovely sunny Florida. It makes me long for sunshine and warmth – the Bride and Groom were truly blessed to have such stunning weather for their big day.
A symbol of love and beauty, the rose is the ideal flower to incorporate into a wedding. With various colors having different meanings, from love and friendship to new beginnings and passion, they can tell a story unique to your wedding.
