If I could, I would crawl into this shoot from Bethany Small Photography and never leave. Because all the pretty pictures below basically sum up my vision of a dream day. The ocean, great friends, gorgeous florals from Good Seed Floral Design, and stunning styling? That’s the definition of perfection for me.


From Bethany Small PhotographyA couple of months ago I had this vision of beauty in my mind that I could not shake! Women coming together for a special event; an event that each lady would remember for some time to come. I planned a tea party by the ocean full of flowing dresses, an abundance of floral and pretty details. Each lady in attendance was chosen to be a part of a day full of beautiful makeup, beach waves in their hair and beautiful dresses!

I would have never dreamed that planning and photographing such an event would turn into something so memorable for not only myself but every lady in attendance! The event became an evening that these women felt truly appreciated and beautiful whether they were sipping tea like a lady or splashing in the waves like a child!

It’s moments like these that a photograph becomes so much more; it becomes a story of beauty, grace and friendship!
