Oh, friends, do we have something exciting to share with you today! We have been itching for months to share this stunning styled shoot with you! And we just know you’re going to be just as obsessed as we are!!
Just wait until you see the monsoon photos! Yep. Monsoon. We got caught in a desert storm during the end of this shoot, and even though it was completely chaotic and crazy, now we could’t picture these photos any other way!
At each #AJWorkshop, we bring in a team of some of the best wedding professionals to design and create a styled shoot for our workshop attendees. For our July workshop, the incredibly talented Shannon with Sassy Soirees designed this rooted, lush garden styled shoot, and we immediately fell in love with every single piece of it. We are beyond excited to share these images with you now that they’ve been published on Inspired By This!
Shannon’s inspiration came from three words: floral, organic and soft. The softest shade of grey served as the foundation for this design and was carried through the light solid gray linen to create a stage for the wild and organic florals brought to life by floral genius, Sarah’s Garden. The staple of this styled shoot was the rooted floral reverse arch for the ceremony. Just as a wedding is the beginning of a marriage taking root, even though we were inside, Shannon envisioned everything growing up and out of ground. The centerpieces Sarah designed were the perfect mix of pastel florals and candles to create a garden surrounding the table.
The cake table featured a lush decorated cake created by one of our favorite dessert teams in town, Ruze Cake House. Not only did the Ruze team create a stand out cake, but they also added an unexpected pop with a donut wall provided by Tremaine Ranch! Yes, you heard us! They hand dipped donuts in shades of blush and white to finish off the soft, romantic feel of the shoot.
And can we just talk about that dress?! This Hayley Paige vision of a soft blue ball gown stole the show, thanks to the amazing ladies at J Bridal Boutique. That dress is what dress dreams are made of! The cathedral veil was the perfect finishing touch.
Shannon and Sarah, you guys are a dream team! Thank you for putting together this unforgettable dream garden shoot! We are forever grateful for your dedication to this project and the amazing team you put together.
