I am pretty sure that you are as obsessed with this shoot as I am (in fact, I KNOW you are since you’re gushing just like me in the comments section). I am so thrilled that Drea and Casey Cunningham, Ivy Robinson, Ceci New York and the entire list of fabulous vendors came together to provide inspiration that I know will influence so many weddings, that will inspire so many brides. And an even bigger thank you to the fabulous Sofia for designing the inspiration board that started it all! Click here to see all of the photos!

Ivy Robinson was specifically inspired by the photo of the blue cocktail glass with the crystal earring.  She wanted to do all things clear, with clarity and sparkle and hence she used plexi for all sorts of purposes.  The signing board was made of plexi but embellished with crystals and hot pink letters to spell out the word love.  We envisioned that this couple would hang it up as a piece of modern art in their home.  The glass table, clear place settings were also all adorned with crystals and lastly the amazing plexi floral chandelier was a creation to behold.  Ivy hung the giant box shaped crystal chandelier to feature Ceci New York name cards, in the pink bow tie shape like our board’s earring.  And finally, I wanted Ivy to create an aisle to remember so she came up with a mirrored (safe to walk on) aisle, lined with plexi tubes with giant flowers growing out of them.  Something fantastical, whimsical but totally edgy and chic. See Ivy’s blog for DIY details.

No shoot is complete with our hair and makeup and we only work with the best.  Kymm Mclean of Who’s The Fairest and Mandi English of M Style Studio brought it all together with understated glamour that was gorgeous but touchable.  Our models looked and felt amazing after Kymm and Mandi worked their magic.

Lastly, Casey and I, Cunningham Photo Artists, felt that this board really allowed for imagination.  We wanted to tell the story of the couple who wanted this wedding.  We wanted love and romance to be palpable and for the spirit of celebration to be ever present in our lighting, imagery and direction.
