Mondays call for a big ol’ dose of gorgeous inspiration, don’t you think? Well lucky for all of us, Brandi Smyth, Mandy Cathey, and Silver Palate Cakery are serving up a big heaping helping of pretty so you kick off the work week in style. This gallery is the perfect compliment to your cup of jo, so dive right in here.
From Brandy Smyth Photography…This is an inspiration shoot with two very different looks! We had wonderful vendors that sent lots of dresses so we couldn’t help but to use 2 of our favorites! One look is more whimsical and soft while the other is bold and sexy. )
The shoot took place in Benton, LA in a field full of golden grass. We wanted to add pops of pretty colors so the florals are bright and cheerful yet subtle. We mixed together furniture and dishes, and topped the table with candle sticks, glass dome jars and lots of flowers. We displayed not one but 3 cakes on top of an old fireplace mantel set off in the distance. The bride first wore a Paolo Sebastion dress that was soft, whimsical and airy – her sheer grey dress matched the sky that day. Later in the evening to play up the golden setting she changed into a hand made dress – completely sheer see through beaded gold top with long flowing bands of chiffon on bottom, bold red lips, and a bouquet that went perfectly! (my personal favorite – such a unique dress this was!)
