There is no better way to welcome in Spring than with this insanely gorgeous From Inspiration to Reality shoot crafted by some of my all time favorite vendors including the fabulous Beth Helmstetter, florals by the oh-so-talented Holly Flora, photography by Steve Steinhardt and paper goods by the lovely Laura Hooper. Inspired by THIS inspiration board, there are so many steal-worthy details tucked inside. So, rather than blab on, I'll just let Steve's gorgeous images speak for themselves...
From Beth Helmstetter...I'm a true believer in approachable and effortless style. Because of this, not only do my client's inspire the weddings I design, but the venue, season and readily available resources are always a significant part of the how and why of the events I style. This shoot was inspired by gorgeous inspiration board as well as the rustic, mountainview farmhouse that was all a twitter with fresh spring flowers, blooming trees and overall casual yet unavoidably spiritual feel. The venue along with found objects and the personal collections of both myself and that of Holly, the talented florist behind the shoot, were also major inspirations. From the lightweight sundress that had been hanging in my closet for months waiting to be exposed to lots of sunshine and the new grass of spring to the vintage refrigerator that we used as the backdrop for our dessert display, I've always found that pulling together a variety of items you are truly in love with, whether new or old, is always the best way to inspire yourself for your wedding or even a springtime photoshoot. All of this combined with the rustic but fresh and sweet "Gold in the Air of Summer" inspiration board definitely encouraged the entire team's creativity.
So much more to come!
