Recently, I had the opportunity to put together a group of F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S vendors to construct a shoot that showcased a classic, clean, and timeless vision for the modern bride. Over the years, I’ve learned that I tend to gravitate to a “less is more” style, as it exudes such class and timeless appeal. For this shoot, I knew I wanted to incorporate very soft fabrics and florals, with natural and simplistic elements for the table settings. I could not be more overjoyed with how my vision came to light with this fabulous team.
The shoot took place at Pinzone’s Italian Village in the most breathtaking nook of charming downtown Fairhope. If you’re ever in the Fairhope area, Pinzone’s is a great aesthetic for a quiet dinner date out. If you’re getting married in the Fairhope area, it’s an even better place for a rehearsal dinner.
Many thanks to Laken and Lauren of Something Borrowed Blooms for their fabulous Olivia Collection of florals. If you haven’t heard of them, I absolutely urge you to check the concept behind their floral business out. They have started a floral rental company (yes, you read that right) in which they rent out S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G premium silk floral collections for weddings. If you’re a bride with champagne taste, but looking for where you can save a bit, they are absolutely worth checking into. The paper goods for the shoot were designed by the immensely talented Kristian & Kortney Cleveland. Kristian & Kortney are a mother-daughter team at Impression Paperie who specialize in premium custom paper goods. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing several weddings which incorporated their work, and let me tell you, these ladies go above and beyond to cater to the vision of their brides.
Makeup for the shoot was done by Caroline Carpenter. Caroline is passionate about makeup and incredibly talented with a brush in hand. I cannot wait to see where the industry takes this girl.
Bella Bridesmaid of Mobile provided the breathtaking dresses. If you friend me on social media, pretend you don’t notice when you see me sporting the gown Elizabeth is wearing for the next formal affair I attend. I’m pretty sure I’ve been dreaming of the chocolate-charcoal off-the-shoulder dress since this shoot.
