It doesn’t get dreamier than this shoot from Marianne Wilson Photography. It simply doesn’t. With a beautiful blend of boho and european inspiration mixed with breathtaking florals by Knot Just Flowers - it’s all pinch yourself pretty from the first image to the last. Pretty that is sure to inspire, and pretty that I plan on getting lost in for many hours today, and you can join me right here.
From KnotJustFlowers…I’ve always dreamt of visiting French countrysides with their beautiful natural landscapes. Since I have yet to visit France, I thought why not bring a little French countryside inspiration into our photo shoot? As an avid thrift store/flea market shopper, I am always on the lookout for pieces that just inspire. I came across a beautiful set of blue patterned plates that really set the tone for this shoot, they had been tucked away just waiting anxiously to be used. Finding a location was easy with the help of the talented and lovely Marianne Sanada of Marianne Wilson Photography. I’ve worked with her before and I’ve seriously become her biggest fan! She gathered 3 gorgeous and I mean gorgeous models who all happened to be previous brides (and all brides who had their weddings featured on SMP!) I enlisted the savory talents of good friend and authentic French Chef Jean Phillipe-Sitbon of At Your Service Catering to provide the delicate cheese and dessert table. I collaborated with Vickie Berry to source and gather unique vintage items and rentals via Red Door Events. Having these one of a kind pieces really made everything come together – a recipe for a sweet romantic French Country inspired shoot! We also had extremely talented ladies prepping our models with their gorgeous hair and makeup. Lindsay of Wedlocks bridal fashioned their sweet and pretty hair styles while Ayat Malek gave them each a down to earth boho chic look with their make-up.
