The coolest thing about this amazing inspiration shoot is the fact that it was totally inspired by Water for Elephants – without anyone realizing it! When Audrey Michel Photography picked up her camera to capture Sweet Pea Flowers‘ tulips and and roses and Worthwhile Style‘s stunning dessert table, she saw the inspiration chic as day – and we LOVE that. Make sure to save some time this afternoon for the gallery, where there are more balloons, gorgeous blooms, and soda waiting for you!

From Sweet Pea Flowers … With the seasons hottest color, tangerine, as our main point for inspiration, the collaboration of all of the vendors’ ideas came together seamlessly. For the overall design, we wanted to show a bright, fun color scheme with a vintage feel. We left it up to each vendor to show their own style, expertise, and creativity. Once everyone and everything was in one location (the dresses, models, hair, makeup, flowers, accessories, and props) and the shoot began, the photographer yelled, “This is so Water for Elephants!” We all laughed and agreed!
