Our Vibrant Country Villa shoot is featured on the Southern Celebrations Blog!!

In December of 2017, Southern Celebrations Magazine announced a Creative Challenge.  Those interested were to design a styled photo shoot, featuring one or more of Pantone’s Spring 2018 Top Twelve Colors.  The photo shoot had to feature several styled vignettes, including a tablescape, cake/dessert table, and fashion.  The winners of the Challenge would be featured on the blog and in the upcoming Volume 7 of the magazine. We answered the Challenge!  

On Sunday, February 4th, 2018, my team of very talented vendors and models gathered at the Sunset Vista Ranch, LLC.  The results of our Vibrant Country Villa styled bridal photo shoot were absolutely amazing!  Our team’s collaboration was one of the top 3, chosen from over 70 entries!  We are very excited to share the blog post from Southern Celebrations with you!  Enjoy!

Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Engagement Brunch

I am simply blown away by Lauren and Brandon’s gorgeous styled session! A real couple who were the perfect fit for this surprise engagement brunch with friends and family on the side. Lauren loves bold, and bright colors so a Lilly Pulitzer theme was perfect for this brunch. The color scheme of pink, magenta, and marigold really added to the overall classy and sophisticated vibe of the garden setup in Sippo Lake Park, Ohio. That adorable table setting that matches their bridesmaid’s gifts is also noteworthy! Brittany Shelley Photography did a great job of capturing the essentials of this styled engagement brunch, so if you want to see it all, scroll away!

A LILLY PULITZER INSPIRED ENGAGEMENT BRUNCH

Bright and colorful, with floral prints  and a bit of tropical flare – this Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Engagement Brunch captured by Brittany Shelley Photography, and planned by Love, Laughter & Elegance, intrigued me at first glance. What a fun way to announce your engagement to your family and friends. An outdoor engagement party filled with vibrant color, fun accessories and yummy food. And when cocktails topped with mini paper umbrellas are being served you know you’re in for some fun.

From the photographer, Brittany Shelley Photography: This album story is about Lauren and Brandon, a real couple who were the perfect fit for this styled session. Lauren and Brandon plan on getting married soon so a perfect surprise engagement brunch was much needed with friends and family by their side. Their friends and family have not arrived yet. Lauren loves bold and bright colors so a Lilly Pulitzer theme was perfect for this brunch. Lauren gathered together her bridesmaid gifts in the colors that matched their table settings. These gifts were a way of asking her friends to be her bridesmaids. Lauren and Brandon are the sweetest! We wish them and their family the best as they celebrate their new life together 🙂
