Have you ever seen living wallpaper? Well today is your lucky day!

Oh, friends! We’ve been DYING to share these images for so long! The incredibly talented Emily Schiesl with LVL Weddings & Events created and designed this living wallpaper paradise wedding styled shoot for our April #AJWorkshop and it was beyond our wildest dreams. When Emily first described her concept to us, we knew it would be amazing (because everything she touches is!) but we never imagined just how captivating it would actually be in real life! We’ve been so excited to share these images with you guys, but we had to keep our lips sealed until it was featured on Ruffled today!

Her botanical dream came to life thanks to the vibrant florals of AZ Flower Bar. Each and every perfectly placed bloom fit together in a seamless way to create a backdrop unlike any other. Not to mention the lush garden centerpiece and the bride’s stunning bouquet. The warm green and ivory paired with the bright pops of fuscia and peach complimented the other details continuously throughout the day.

The climbing florals of the decadent cake, designed and created by Ruze Cake House, were just the start of the dessert heaven. When the amazing ladies of Ruze showed us the secret up their sleeves for the styled shoot, we were in awe!! We’re talking personalized sugar cubes that dissolved as soon as they hit the champagne!! AMAZING!! And those cookies macaroons. Gorgeously printed with the couples initials, their wedding date, and flowers to match the bouquet. We just can’t get enough!!

And can we talk about our amazing real-life married couple?! Kim and Ben, you two were flawless in front of our cameras!! Having not only one, but 16 extra photographers all flashing at once is no easy task. But you both handled it with such grace and class! Thank you for being so patient, kind and joyful! We just love you both!

Thank you, Emily, for your talent, team and amazing work on this project! The #AJWorkshop is honored to get to shoot something of this caliber along side a professional like you. We love you, girl!!!

Here are just a few of our MANY favorites! This styled shoot truly was a living paradise!
