Since the very beginning of the From Inspiration to Reality features here on Style Me Pretty, there have been an astronomical amount of jaw dropping shoots that hopefully have provided TONS of inspiration for all of you brides to be. This shoot is joining the ranks of all the fabulous features gone by and it is taking the cake as one of the most romantic to date. I tell you, those rosy hues get us every time and what about all the fab love letters from Cards de Luxe or that confectionary masterpiece from Cake Coquette? La, la lovely. Be sure to check out the gallery where the FULL shoot is hanging out in all of its romantic glory.

I was inspired to use a wrought-iron baker’s rack that I came across in Asiel Design’s warehouse space as one of my main props. The rack would serve as a display filled with mementos of a timeless love. Love letters, vintage jewelry, gifts sent to the bride by her fiancé, and an old typewriter are amongst the many items featured in our display. Our floral designers, Linnae and Jon came up with the concept of using cherry blossoms and moss for our fanciful garden. Cherry blossoms have a wispy feel to them, very romantic and sweet in nature. We also agreed on incorporating wrought-iron gates into our fanciful garden scene to create a dreamy, ethereal-like setting. Flanking the edges of our gates are cherry blossoms and branches, creating a tree-like effect. We surrounded the front of the gates with moss, moss balls and potted plants that contained various types of spray roses, such as majolica, quicksand and sahara. Other flowers incorporated into our shoot were ranunculus, berries, hydrangeas, and tulips.
For our living room setting, we brought in cream-colored antique chairs, a wrought-iron nightstand and a gold antique coffee table layered with moss to set the mood. We created a tea party display on the coffee table and positioned love poems and books on the nightstand to serve as the base for an antique lamp. Our bride wore two different couture bridal gowns from Nouvelle Vogue, one a Sara Houston from Ireland and the other a Hannibal Laguna from Spain. We hope you enjoy viewing images from our shoot, as much as we enjoyed creating it.
