There were so many CRAZY beautiful ideas and elements that went into this shoot, so many steal-worthy ideas tucked inside each and every corner. The GORGEOUS invitations were designed by Lisa “Ceci” Hoffman of Ceci New York just for this shoot and they literally made my jaw drop. The jewelry was also custom designed for the day by the fabulous Kristin Morris. The hot pink florals, the clear chiavari chairs, the perfect desserts and the maids that are absolutely gorgeous…every little bit of this shoot is perfection. Ivy Robinson and Drea and Casey Cunningham are my new style heroes for sure.

We picked the Sofia’s styleboard because it was unique and vibrant and sexy. We felt like it was a standout and that it could help usher in a refreshing take on wedding day glamour. We kept the romance and the girlish sensibility but added a modern flair and charm that was achievable for any bride.

Ceci New York was inspired by the crystals and the seductive bustier. Lisa wanted to create pure romance with indulgence and glamour. She embellished nearly everything with crystals, designed some amazing laser cut plexi panels for the invite as well as the peony placemats and kept with the elegant feel of the board by using black as a grounding color. Fantasy, romance, elegance with a seriously modern twist make these invites so unique! Holly from Salutations Fine Stationery is thrilled to have been a part of this elegant suite and can’t wait to carry the consumer version in her store!

Amy Craparo from The Wow Factor Cakes was completely inspired by the little heart on the pretty pink pout. The sparkly lips transformed to a completely pink, edibly glittery cake. Handmade sugar peonies crown the amazing confection and a sweet bow and ruffled bottom pulled the whole board together in one creation.

Heather and Laura from Hayden Olivia Bridal set out to create modern elegance with a soft edge. They pulled from never before seen dresses from Modern Trousseaus newest collection and we kept envisioning a shrug and BOY did they come up with an AMAZING lambswool shrug! The crowing achievement was an elegantly inspired necklace and simple pearl earring from the talented Kristin Morris and a totally new bridal vision was born. For the maids, Heather and Laura wanted to play off of the varying pinks and keep the maids details streamlined and sweet.

For our groom, we had to come up with a look dreamy enough to fit this styleboard and Melissa Lamkin of Swanky Bride did a fantastic job. Sourcing local men’s retailers and some national chains, our groom came to life as a modern, romantic and sensible guy. We wanted him to look GQ but totally approachable. We would love to see more men forgo the tux for a handsome suit with serious style, one that they will actually wear again and again. See Melissa’s blog for details!
