A Boho Inspired Bridal Session | St Louis Bridal Photographer
This is what you receive when connecting with other wedding professionals in your area (& some that are outside of your area too!)
Since moving back to St. Louis for a short & temporary amount of time, I have met some of the most amazing creatives that the industry has to offer & it has blown me away. So when I began befriending these amazing professionals, a styled shoot vision arose & came to life. I can tell you that each & ever vendor that put forth their time, effort, & more to this shoot poured, & continue to pour their heart & soul into their craft.
Our styled shoot was out of the ordinary but a certain element was brought to it that made it that much more extraordinary - as we began styling & photographing, the tornado sirens at our location began sounding off - we later found out that a twister was spotted the next town over; talk about battling the elements & that unpredictable Midwest weather! Due to the weather, the sky was shades of deep blue, gray, & black while we were shooting which made the images even more swoon worthy! On a sidenote: we were incredibly safe & alert the entire shoot to ensure safety!
Our bride, Maranda wore a beautiful handmade couture gown created by Angie & Cyndi at Kaye Nicole Couture & a garden rose floral crown designed by Laura at Ophelia Floral Design that was too perfect for words.
Adding in to our boho vision, Samantha of Grand Vintage Rentals provided us with a few of her gorgeous vintage furniture pieces (how gorgeous is the yellow settee & cake stand?) & table setting sets which included the to die for gold detail plates & the crystal goblets!
The scrumptious calligraphy bridal invitation suite was designed & handmade by Nicolette of Lazy Woodlane & we cannot get enough of all the gold detailing & whimsical handwriting! She also came up with the menu items that had our mouthes watering as we read it! Talk about delicious!
Then theres the cake - the yummy, delectable, naked cake that was separated into three layers divided by icing then iced all around with a thin layer to create a minimal look baked & perfected by Maddi Ellis.
The additional floral styling of the cake & the bouquet were also curated by the wonderful Ophelia Floral Design! Laura did an amazing job honing in on our vision & creating a very simple cake topper to give it a little "pop!" of color.
I want to send a HUGE thank you to all of the lovely entrepreneurs/business owners/creatives that took part in this project & helped it come alive - each of their craft, effort, & passion contributed in a way that made this photoshoot all that it was. I could not be more proud to know each & every one of them & have collaborated with them!
