I am so sad that our photoshoot is coming to an end. Amorology Weddings and Jill Thomas have inspired, delighted and just made us really darn happy today with a love shoot that was as charming as it was totally gorgeous. And the couples that are participating are actually in love, actually really smitten with each other. So to have this little piece of heaven to share a kiss...well, it's kind of awesome.
The Table: We wanted it to be as if each couple brought their own elements from their wedding. so, there are lots of colors, different chairs, even different plates. We imagined them sharing their own personal touches at the dining table and creating a tapestry of textures, mix and match china patterns, hand-stitched napkins and dining chairs from each of the couples trusso as we set a charmingly elegant table. Gold and crystal candelabras added to the warm glow of candlelight alongside the vintage lace wrapped votives. Soft Peonies, kale, ranunculus, lizzy and garden roses filled a rusty bucket and sat among 3 cake toppers from each of the couples weddings - to be eaten on the first anniversary as the couples shared highlights from their first year of marriage. Little paper flags that read "Happily Ever After" were placed in oranges upon each plate as a nod to both the present and future of their relationships. Vintage handkerchiefs hung from twine and wood clothespins across the orange trees, creating a lovely sheer backdrop.
