I knew that you guys would love this shoot. It’s everything that a girl could want…it’s pretty, it’s elegant, it’s romantic. It’s filled  to the brim with the most picture perfect details and completely captures the essence of the Style Me Pretty bride. A HUGE thank you to Millie Holloman, Salt Harbor Designs and the rest of the incredible team for taking the time, money and energy to put something this special together. I can say with complete confidence that it will forever be an SMP favorite.

Okay, back to the amazing shoot. Here are a few behind the scenes details from Millie and Jennifer…

To create our ceremony site, we used wallpaper for the aisle runner and an old wooden table lined with flowers for the altar. For seating, we brought in great wooden benches for Party Suppliers and Rentals and added a few cushions. We also hung a swing from the tree to add some of that childlike whimsy. We used all different types and colors of ribbon and tied them to white wooden poles for guests to wave goodbye. We used wallpaper to create signage for our “kissing booth” that said “pucker up” and attached it to two wooden poles we had painted white.

Amazing. My head is spinning with ideas and inspirations thanks to the incredible spread that Millie, Jennifer and team designed for us. I feel SO lucky to work with such talented people and even luckier to be able to brag about them on a platform like Style Me Pretty. Thanks again to everyone who participated, especially our incredibly talented reader that designed the inspiration board! We have tons of From Inspiration to Reality shoots in the works, along with some pretty amazing weddings coming your way this week!
