Ok, so I couldn’t resist posting the rest of these photos from this styled session! I’m so over the moon that it’s was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday! ;) I’m so honored. It was so evident to me throughout all the planning that God wanted to do something big with this shoot. (You can read more about the backstory in yesterday’s post.)
Here’s a bit of my inspiration for the shoot:
This session was birthed from my life-long love affair with my hometown, Jacksonville. The beautiful St. Johns River runs right through downtown and frames the blue skyline so well. For this session, I wanted to take advantage of my gorgeous city by creating a chic rooftop affair. I loved the idea of creating a soft, romantic feel in such an urban environment. Once I found the Badgley Mischka gown, I knew we were headed in the right direction. The fabulous, gold, sparkling gown was contrasted with green succulents, whites and soft tones. For the table, we incorporated neutrals, gold accents and simple floral designs to give a romantic feel. Over the table for two we built a canopy of hanging lights and flowing tulle. What could be more romantic than a dinner under string lights on a rooftop? (It is definitely a look that can be recreated by DIY-savvy brides! Plus, I was able to build it by myself.) As the sun began to drop, our couple danced the night away under the city lights. That beautiful dress sparkled even more as the sun began to fade.
Jordan (who is also the fabulous girl who designed my site) was such a gorgeous model! Isn’t she a stunner? Wow!
Jordan designed these pretty little invites, menus, etc…If you are in the market for wedding paper products, she’s your girl!
I feel like Chris (Jordan’s husband) looks very Clark Kent in this one!
Aren’t they so precious? I love using models who are couples in real life because their love is genuine. These two newly-weds couldn’t have been more perfect.
I have to give a huge thank you to Sarah Eddy for the creative cake shots and to my sweet friend Christine for the cake design! It was gorgeous and tasted amazing! Win/win! :)
This is my favorite ring shot to date. I’m in love with the buttery goodness!
I’m so in love with this one!
This is my favorite skyline. I love Jacksonville!
