From Joy Michelle Photography:I have a special place in my heart for beautiful design and stationery. I mean, lets be real… have a degree in graphic design and a total obsession with beautiful type and calligraphy so of course my heart would skip a beat over this incredible stationery suite by Emily Hein. I knew when I asked her if she wanted to design something for this shoot that she would knock it out of the park but seriously!? I’m in love.
The stunning bridal gown is an original design from Mary's Designer Bridal in Annapolis, Maryland. I just love the sweetheart neckline paired with the lace-up back - classic and beautiful. The full lace skirt, especially the detail along the hem, was my favorite part.
The theme of the shoot was inspired by lavender flowers and afternoon tea. Lavender is considered lucky so many brides choose to have it in their bouquets and wedding flowers. The venue of the shoot, Willow Oak Flower & Herb Farm, makes their own dried teas and herb sachets so it worked perfectly with the theme. Willow Oak provided both lavender flowers and dried lavender in muslin sachets for the shoot. I could go on and on about the florals in this shoot but I will just say that every inch and detail of the flowers are stunning!
SugarBakers provided the cake and it was not only beautiful but tasty. And yes, I got to take it home! Confession: I had it for breakfast for the next few days! :) They even made the inside icing purple to go along with the shoot.
So fun to see behind the scenes this video courtesy of Carlton Colby Designs!
