Featured On Cake and Lace Blog

You guys!! We are So excited to get to share some super fun news with y’all today! Earlier this week, we got the incredibly exciting news that our romantic succulent-inspired styled shoot from back in August was featured over on the Cake & Lace Blog! Ahh! How fun is that?! We spent months and months working hard to gather inspiration, chatting with our phenomenal vendors, and pulling together lots of details to make this shoot happen! To have it featured is just the cherry on top of the cake for us, honestly… it was fun and unexpected, and we just wanted to tell y’all about it!

Here’s a little exceprt from the feature: A few months back, we began dreaming aabout creating a late-summer styled shoot that was something unique and different from everything we see on a regular basis in the wedding industry. We wanted a big and wild bouquet, a classic yet fresh wedding gown, a tablescape overflowing with color and florals, a naked cake with a twist, classic stationery with a twist, and some completely unexpected touches thrown in for good measure. Enter the hanging floral arrangments in the trees…these were some of our favorite details! As we continued to plan and design, we realized that a lot of what we wanted could be accomplished by centering the shoot around a succulent theme, so we went with it…and we are obsessed with the results.

We honestly don’t share about this little feature for ANY other reason than to share about the incredible vendors we got to work with on this project, so without further ado, here are the amazing people we partnered with for this shoot! Without them, this shoot simply would not have been possible. 🙂
