On Saturday, November 25th, 2017, my fantastic team of vendors and models descended upon the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Canton, Ohio, for a styled bridal photo shoot. I have been planning this event for some time. One of my favorite movies stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire – Funny Face. It’s the only movie they ever made together. My video partner, Joseph Testa Productions, filmed the whole day, and put together a great video! We would like to share it with you! Just click the link and enjoy!

We have been blessed to have our Lily Pulitzer Inspired Styled Shoot featured on the Wedding Fanatic blog!
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!
We’re All About the Details!
The Lilly Pulitzer Themed Table
Lilly Pulitzer prints have always been the star of vibrant fashion and merging it with the outdoor brunch design and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous inspiration.
Lauren loves bright and bold colors and this themed design is simply perfect! Filled with gorgeous flowers and printed table runners, this design would fit your desire for a vibrant themed outdoor brunch.
Lauren wore a blush embroidered dress that looks great with Brandon’s white long sleeve and his printed bow tie.
The Bloom Sign
The bloom sign is just a wonderful addition to their decorations. Literally saying that with this engagement their love is simply blooming towards forever.

I love, love, love the movie “Funny Face”, with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire! It was the perfect combination of story, song, dance, and fashion! The fact that the majority of the story took place in Paris, France, just adds to the charm of the movie. The scenery was amazing. I highly recommend that you view it sometime!
This is my take on a wedding inspired by this iconic cinematic masterpiece. I would love to create this for a couple, or even a styled photo shoot. If anyone would like to work on this with me, please feel free to send me a message!
We have been extremely blessed to have our work published on the Wedding Colors blog!
We recently produced a styled photo shoot, with a Lilly Pulitzer inspired theme. Working together with the talented Brittany of Brittany Shelley Photography, our gorgeous models Lauren and Brandon, we spun the story of a surprise Engagement Brunch. Original artwork was provided by the gifted young artist Annika Lehman, the beautiful stationery was provided by Angela Marie Giaco of A Pink Sunset, and adorable cake topper was provided by Lexi Eveleth of Ever Laser. Baked goods were provided by the talented staff at our local Giant Eagle Bakery. We shot on location in Sippo Lake Park, in Canton, Ohio. Please enjoy!
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 🙂
