What I love about this shoot isn’t quite as obvious as lovely pictures. And lovely they are, it’s really all about the colors. The textures. The feeling of happy, that seems to fill every last photograph. From the wispy gowns to the floral crowns, every last detail – designed by Lavena B. Vintage with photographs by Andie Reavely – is boho chic entirely steal-worthy. More here!

From Andie Reavely… Wanderers, adventurers and vagabond: a community of like-minded folk. The idea of the bohemian is undeniably captivating. With this inspired shoot, we wanted to exhibit the whimsical diversity, yet like-mindedness of a bohemian company.
Everything, from the pom-poms, flower crowns, mismatched glassware and recycled bottles made us want to take our shoes off and breath a little bit deeper and laugh a little more freely.
This troupe of artists and creators was a dream to work with— coincidentally embodying the very concept of this shoot inspiration.

If you just so happen to be a Molly Ringwald, 1980′s movie fan – this shoot is for you. And if you have yet to experience the magic that is Sixteen Candles, I’m pretty sure the wedding inspiration will still manage to speak straight to your pretty-loving soul. Captured by SLF, it’s must-see gallery - and can’t miss cake from Country Cake Shop – plus film will have you pinning from start to finish.
From SLF…The most important piece for me about this shoot was the people. Not the flowers, the cake, the pretty details. Not the “models.” The two genuine, lively and giddy-in-love individuals we chose to tell our story. Though the details surrounding them are gorgeous, the lovers make the scene. Bryon put the idea of a ’16 Candles’ Inspired Shoot into my head. The table, the birthday cake, the candles. And this vision of a romantic and youthful little love scene that could actually leave a feeling with its viewers, the way a good film does, had me immediately excited.
I worked on planning the shoot that day. Bryon and I are creative commercial filmmaking and wedding cinematographers. We are also professional wedding photographers. It was, and is always, our goal to tell a story and to inspire a feeling. Not just to have you swooning over the pretty details. But to connect you to real people. To give you butterflies. To give ourselves butterflies. To make you cry. To make ourselves cry. This is the first styled shoot Bryon and I have directed ourselves and we did it in passion of real people and the feelings we share with them. A little story of early love. A little dream of young romance and that perfect first kiss, long-awaited. And inspired by that memorable last scene of the 1984 film ‘Sixteen Candles.’ We created our own unique tribute to the scene, with a gorgeous piece of music composed by Tommy Leinonen. We are thankful for all of the amazing and gifted people who had a part in bringing this vision of romance and beauty to life.

From Orange Photographie… This beautiful wedding in Whitefish, Montana was full of personal, meaningful details that were special to Jess and Jon…. seating arrangements designated by locations they’ve travelled to together, their favorite quotes, and library book due date slips that served as place cards (they also noted special dates in the couple’s relationship).
While Montana weddings can tend towards an overabundance of rusticity, Jess made sure that the design had just enough rustic touches to stay true to the Big Sky setting while still keeping it fresh and elegant. It was a balanced blend of subtle bucolic touches (the outdoor setting, farmhouse tables, woodland-inspired invitations) with sophisticated romance (a beautiful lace Maggie Sottero gown, lush, soft-hued florals, and one of the prettiest bridal updos we’ve ever seen). And most of all, the highlights of the day were the many tender ways in which they continually showered each other with love, beginning with their sweet and emotional gift exchange. The bride recounted her favorite moment: “It was at sunset when we were taking those photos and could just have a few moments to enjoy each other and the day… those are my favourite photos because I think you did an amazing job capturing that moment.” The smiles on their faces gave away how head over heels they are for each other. Their wedding was truly a perfect Montana midsummer night’s dream.
