From Manda Weaver Photography… Preserved amidst the modern context of the warm Florida coast the Bonnet House is filled with old-world Spanish charm, secret hideaways, and ponds reminiscent of a Monet painting. This historic setting surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the new world reminded me of the convergence of two stories as they meld into one.
Romance will flourish be grounded in history, as a new life together is built, enduring love discovered, a deep friendship built, and a story written that is worth telling. This shoot depicts a celebration of a couple in love who is writing such a story. A couple that will build upon the pages written in their past, both together and separate, and begin the next chapters that will tell of their ever after.
The design created by Manda Weaver for Styled Shoots Across America featured linens from Nuage Designs, Airy Romantic Florals from The Bloom Floral Co, stunning paper elements and calligraphies name card tiles from Pretty Written Things, and a gorgeous dress from Kelly Faetanini and with echoes of textures and colors found in the architecture, flora, and fauna at the Bonnet house, as well as vintage books that elude to the focus on a storied romance.
