Why hello folks!

I am beyond THRILLED to share some amazing news with you! Our radiant orchid wedding shoot was featured on Swooned Wedding Blog a few weeks ago!

You can check our all the pretty here!

Joanna (of Joanna B. Artistry) and I have been dreaming of 2014 wedding trends for months now. After many coffee and cocktail dates, we decided to plan a fun-filled day where we photographed some of our favorite looks. We pulled together some AMAZING vendors, helpful hands and styling gurus to create three unique looks.

First off, we wanted to create a themed shoot featuring the 2014 Pantone Color of the year, radiant orchid. Inspired by the thought of spring (in the dead of winter) we wanted to portray a colorful boho-chic look that exuded the touch and scents of spring.

With the help of our incredible vendors, we decided to go in a woodland, nature-themed direction to highlight the boho look of the models as well as the studding Gemma gown & floating cathedral veil sent to us by none other than BHLDN, a boho bride’s dream!

You will notice the lush greenery, natural & vintage elements as well as the animal presence in the shoot. We used tons of moss and succulents to bring the woodland theme to life and breathe fresh spring air into the shoot. Fleur Du Jour, our florist, nailed our vision and made us beautiful arrangements as well as the headpiece you will see on the model, Lauren. And what about those rings?! Stunning! Mon Ami Jewelry has some beautiful pieces. The rings look like little crowns sitting atop the gold rock in the photos. *All other jewelry provided by Glenview Jewelers*

I LOVE the cake topper, two deers resting nicely atop of our radiant orchid colored ombre cake.

The whole day was such a dream… This cold Chicago winter has been so harsh and putting together this ethereal shoot was such fun! Initially, I was nervous about incorporating the radiant orchid color but there is so much you can do with it! Woodland, romantic, classic or vintage. The possibilities are endless for 2014 brides!

Hope you enjoy & until next time, be well!
