Courtyards & Cobblestones Styled Shoot
One flower was the jumping off point of this design and styled shoot for C&C 2018, Lily of The Valley. In previous years we have made these enormous gorgeous bouquets and this year I wanted something rare, something unique and something stunning on its own. I knew that procuring Lily of The Valley would be a long shot but Kristy from Eco Chic Blossoms and her incredible wholesaler made it happen.
From the simplicity of this bouquet came the clean, simple dress of this dress and it fit Mallory like it was tailored for her! Ashley added a simple belt that gave it a little "shoosh"! Pictures will never do this dress justice, you have to see the buttons trailing down the entire back of the dress and the fabric with its texture is to die for. Ashley found Stuart this light blue suit and paired it with this great bow tie to complete his look. The two of them compliment each other so well!
"Come Sail Away" was our theme so shooting the couple near Cape Fear River was perfect. We were even able to use items like the gold calm shell for the ring shot and a brass compass from Pressed Cotton to help pull that theme throughout the day's design.
Collaborations with Ashley from ADG Fashion Styling and Brooke with Southern Bee Designs helped to bring together a stationery suite fit for this styled shoot. In keeping with the theme we kept all the paper elements clean and simple to match the rest of the design.
Special shoutout to the style team, Tess, Melissa and Ashley for pulling this all together and making this couple look their best for this shoot. We couldn't do this without you! Lastly we have to thank Mallory and Stuart (or Stu as Mallory calls him) for being the most perfect couple for this shoot. If you are lucky to be in their presence you are able to witness love in its truest form!
All My Best

Blogging about these weddings lets me relive all of the amazing moments I was able to share with my clients. I hope that you enjoy these couple's weddings days as much as I do.
