I know I have mentioned this before, but here goes: I am not a girly girl. Sure, I love Jane Austen and weddings with every ounce of my being, but when it comes to fashion, I’m a flip flop and shorts kind of lady. That is… until the second I spotted this breathtaking inspiration shoot from the amazing Vanessa Noel Events and Anna Delores Photography. Because in that very moment, I made the (smart) decision to live out my days right here in this almond orchard, surrounded by yummy treats from Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop and skipping about in my gorgeous gown from Pink Giraffe Bowtique. Bye bye flip flops, hello pretty. See it all in the full gallery.
Anna Delores Photography and Vanessa Noel Events collaborated to produce this dreamy, spring-inspired styled shoot in the almond orchards of the central California valley. With visions of bold black and white, softened with feminine touches of the palest lavender, this inspiration shoot also enlisted the help of several handmade and small business vendors throughout Southern and Central California. The almond blossoms are only in bloom for about two weeks every March, and we were fortunate enough to catch them at their peak!
