In the off-season, wedding vendors love to work together on styled wedding photoshoots to create new content, share inspiration, and create their dream wedding scenarios! After a year of very few weddings, I was antsy to shoot gorgeous weddings again in spring of 2021! Therefore, I decided to pull together a small styled shoot with other talented wedding vendors. I’ve always loved the idea of a lavender wedding theme, so I decided to create my own dream lavender wedding!
First, I needed a beautiful light and bright venue. I immediately thought of The Blaisdell, because I loved photographing there for Cristina and Steven’s intimate wedding. They immediately agreed to have us, and I was thrilled! Then, I reached out to my friend Brooke of Brooke Elisabeth Photography to see if she wanted to shoot alongside me and help me coordinate. Now, we just had to fill in the other gaps!
Next, we needed a dress and a florist. Since I loved my experience shopping for my own dress at Effie’s Bridal Trunk, I knew I wanted to work with them again. We ended up finding a stunning gown by Lis Simon from their Spring 2021 collection! Then, I reached out to Hannah at Minne Floral Co to see if she would contribute a bouquet and floral arrangement for the fireplace at The Blaisdell. Hannah was so sweet, and she created a stunning organic arrangement that perfectly matched our lavender wedding theme.
Finally, we found our model, Felisha, and asked our friend Lisa from LHNBEAUTY to do hair and makeup. At the last minute, I reached out to the incredibly talented Josie from Ivory Isle Designs to see if she would want to create an invitation suite. Though it is a super busy season for her, Josie put together a gorgeous suite that featured watercolor accents and a stunning painting of The Blaisdell. It was so gorgeous, I want to keep the suite just to stare at!
I am so thrilled with how this lavender themed wedding styled shoot turned out. Check out all the beauty below!
