The talented group of vendors that created this stunning styled shoot said that their inspiration was "romantic elegance". And holy shit did they achieve it!! But, my inspiration? Stunning photographs minus the drama. I wanted to show you a glimpse of what hiring amazing vendors (and trusting their ability) can do for your wedding, bridey, but I didn't feel like the drama today. Because this planner needs a break from the reality of wedding planning even if it is for just one post... I need a break from discussing wedding budgets, complicated family dynamics and overbearing MOBs (mother of the bride). I need a break from being needed. And, I bet I'm not alone. Your vendors probably could use a break too...
That's why I decided to show you a cool ass styled shoot rather than a real wedding today. I wanted some eye candy without the side of hysteria. I wanted to see and share pretty pictures without being involved emotionally. I wanted to show you what a group of amazing vendors can do without limitations and micro management. So, bridey, I invite you to breathe in these gorgeous pics, let go of the drama in your life (even if it's for just a bit), enjoy the creativity of these imaginative vendors and be inspired!
I swear, this royal blue is sparkling! I am OBSESSED with the tree! Look down...
The royal blue linen, the pattered accoutrements and even a striking table number. Oh my!
I love the glittery ribbon around the base of the centerpiece.
I didn't expect the rustic garden chairs, but I love how they complete the look!
Holy shit with the cake. Need some close-ups? Look down...
I mean... If I had time, you KNOW that I would dedicate an entire blog to just cakes, right? And this one? This one would be front and center!
You're dying over that cake topper, right? I am! Bling bling!! Check out the exquisite cake stand below.
Not to sound dense, but I had know idea that roses existed in that toupe color...
Wow! What a concept... A bridesmaid dress that will definitely get worn again! Gorge!
The only drama you're going to see today? This super dramatic ending to today's post!
