From Cottonwood Road Photography:This styled bridal shoot is simply perfect. The "bride" is beautiful and is the creator and owner of a small business called My Blissful Bouquets. She creates gorgeous arrangements with faux flowers, succulents, etc even vintage brooches for the bride on the budget. The best part about these stunning bouquets? You can keep them forever and they look just as vivid as the day they were made.
We used vintage heirlooms from the bride's grandmother all the way to her great, great, great grandmother. Also, a handful of the items you see are estate sale finds! I believe this is a really unique idea and opportunity for brides on a budget to make a really beautiful, one of a kind wedding!
From Hannah McIntosh of My Blissful Bouquets:For this elegant styled shoot, we chose to use genuine, European antiques that are special to me and my family. My great grandmother, Dot, was a military court reporter stationed in Germany during World War II. She found the delicate wooden table and chairs during her time in Germany, which she then brought back to the United States, along with countless other treasures. The needlework seen on the seat of the wooden heart shaped chair was hand-done by Dot and her sisters after the war.
Along with the stunning furniture, my great grandmother found the priceless china, genuine silverware and lace tablecloth while in Germany. When decorating for your wedding, incorporating family heirlooms adds to the sentimentality on your big day!
