Who Doesn’t Like Flannel?

We all know that black and red go together like PB&J but the flannel with the neutral, coral and light blue accented bouquet really give this Kate Spade inspired photo shoot some zing! Let’s not forget to mention that every bride needs a great pair of shoes. I would wear those any day of the week 🙂 Loving the contrast. It all fits together so nicely.

We have been featured on the Pretty Pear Bride!!

In September of 2018, in honor of my 45th birthday, I collaborated with several talented vendors on a little styled photo shoot.  Usually I am the one coordinating all of the vendors,models, decor and details, but this time, I wanted to do something just for me.  The end result was a fun-filled afternoon of pampering, and I felt like a queen!  I could not have done this without my fabulous vendor team.  Thank you very much, dear friends!

The styled shoot is featured today on the Pretty Pear Bride blog!  My advice:  Never be afraid to celebrate you!  Enjoy!

STYLED SHOOT | 45 AND FABULOUS | WHATNOT SHOP PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we are sharing an amazing styled shoot. It’s a shoot from someone out of our own wedding industry community… I just love that. Check out what Kimberly of Love, Laughter and Elegance: Wedding and Event Planning.

“This is a styled shoot, celebrating the woman that I am at this point in my life. I am a wedding and event planner with over 20 years of experience. I am also a wife to a fantastic husband, and mom to two awesome daughters. I am confident in my own skin, proud of my education, accomplishments, and abilities, and damn sexy in my own right! I wanted to do something special for myself for my birthday, and to be able to share that day with others.”

What was your design inspiration? have seen other milestone birthday celebrations shared online, and I wanted to do something similar for my 45th birthday, which took place in September. I love the fun, bright colors and peppy style of Kate Spade, and wanted to bring that out in this photo session. Those shades of hot pink, blush, black and gold are some of my favorites, and are also my business branding colors, so it went along perfectly! I wanted to showcase the woman I have become at this stage of my life: educated, successful, vibrant, and damn sexy in my own right!

Describe your flowers.My flowers are a mixture of lush silk blooms, in shades of white and pink: dahlias, magnolias, jasmine, peonies and roses.

Describe your cake.The stunning cake was created by Debbie Wright of Cake Wasted. It is frosted in edgy black fondant, giving it a chalkboard effect. The cake was trimmed in narrow gold ribbon, edible gold paint drips, and blush pink silk blooms. It is easily my favorite cake!

Tell us about your attire choices.I wanted to share my sultry, sexy, and fun-loving sides in this celebration shoot. For one of my looks, I chose a my blush pink leather jacket, which was layered over a black lace bodysuit, and blush tulle skirt. Another one of my favorite looks, was my black strapless dress, to which I had my fabulous seamstress, Laurie Wallick of Lorili Design, add a fun hot pink chiffon ruffle. Of course, what birthday celebration would be complete without a gorgeous tiara! I had so much fun choosing that particular piece, and I definitely felt like a queen for a day!

Please describe any DIY, handmade or personal details.Most of the details were pretty classic, simple and elegant. That is my personal style. The cute paper pinwheels that were attached to the message board were created by Melissa Walker. The sign that I am holding in one of the photos describes some of the things that were popular and culturally relevant in 1973, my birth year. It made for a fun keepsake.

Describe the tablescape elements.The table was covered in a floor length white linen, and topped with a large black and white checked cloth. The stylish cake was placed on a clear glass cake plate, and the gorgeously decorated birthday cookies were styled on a vintage gold framed mirror tray. We added napkins in coordinating colors, and a bottle of bubbly and gold-rimmed crystal champagne flutes. We also had a couple of cute stemless wineglasses, and fun straws.

KATE SPADE INSPIRED STYLED SHOOT

Submitted by: Love, Laughter & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning

What was your design inspiration?

I have always loved Kate Spade‘s style. Timeless, elegant, chic. I have wanted to put together a styled photo shoot with some of her signature colors for a while now. I try to put a unique spin on all of my themes when I am designing for a photo shoot or my clients. This time, I added a black and white checked pattern to the mix. It added a quaint country touch to a sophisticated style, and made it absolutely adorable!

Describe your flowers.

The flowers were a mixture of fresh and silk blooms. The cake had two small cascades of fresh fuschia tea roses, raspberry mini carnations, and hypericum berries. The silk arrangements on the cake table included silk blush peonies and roses in vintage glass bottles. The silk floral centerpiece on the dining table featured large white magnolias, fuschia dahlias, blush peonies, and white jasmine blossoms. The gorgeous bridal bouquet and boutonniere were created by Linda Silvestri, of Fleur Wedding Bouquets. They featured colorful silk flowers, pink pearls, and black and white checkered ribbon to match our theme.

Describe your cake.

The delicate, single-tier cake was a homemade vanilla bean cake, frosted in vanilla buttercream, and covered in two small cascades of fresh flowers.

Tell us about your attire choices.

I wanted to keep the bridal look for our model, Sammy, very sweet and simply elegant. She wore an understated brilliant white gown, with an embroidered bodice, and organza floor length skirt. We added extra fullness with an additional crinoline. The black and white checkered blouse, tied over the top of the gown, added a relaxed sophistication to the overall look. We had two different pairs of shoes, one being a sparkly gold heel, and the other being an adorable pair of hot pink and white polka dot pumps.

Please describe any handmade, DIY, or personal items.

The colorful paper pinwheels that were hanging above the cake table were created by Melissa Walker. The black and white pinwheels were made of printed sheet music, and the hot pink ones had printed centers that read “pop, fizz, clink”. Very whimsical and playful.

The gorgeous bridal bouquet and boutonniere were created by Linda Silvestri, of Fleur Wedding Bouquets. They featured colorful silk flowers, pink pearls, and black and white checkered ribbon to match our theme.

Describe the tablescape elements.

The dining table was draped in a hot pink linen, with a striking black and white striped table runner. The centerpiece was created with three gold and glass open lanterns of varying sizes and large pillar candles. Surrounding the lanterns there were silk magnolias, dahlias, peonies, and jasmine blooms. The table settings consisted of square plates and bowls with a simple black design and black napkins. We added two Kate Spade embroidered dinner napkins at the place settings of the newlyweds. The antique silverware and glassware are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate collection, as are the chairs at the dining table.

The cake table, which we placed on the front porch of the Spring Hill home, was covered in a bright white linen and topped with a large black and white checkered tablecloth. We added the small homemade wedding cake on a glass pedestal plate, and cake knife set, tied with black and white polka dot bows. Also placed on the table were fuschia napkins, gold-rimmed champagne flutes, and soft silk florals. The small, antique dessert plates and silverware are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate collection.

STARRY NIGHT INSPIRED STYLED SHOOT

Submitted by  Love, Laughter & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning

What was your design inspiration?

I have long wanted to do a starry night theme. Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting plays well along with this. The mood was to be ethereal, light, sparkling and romantic. A little bit of heaven on earth, if you will.

Describe your flowers.

I wanted to use a mostly white floral scheme, with a hint of blue and silver. My florist created lush, gorgeous bouquets and a centerpiece featuring white anemone, white hydrangea, scabiosa, waxflower, white veronica, dusty miller, and peonies. The flowers were a bright contrast against the navy and silver table linens and formal dresses. The flowers were also to be reminiscent of groups of stars.

Describe your cake.

The cake that Gearhart Custom Cakes created is absolutely gorgeous! It is a four-tier cake, with the bottom layer hand painted in silver.  The top 3 tiers are covered in sparkling navy blue edible glitter. Each tier is defined by a band of bling. The topper is a custom acrylic piece made especially for this project, to finish the cake beautifully.

Tell us about your attire choices.

The attire for this styled shoot was so glamorous! The bridal gown and starry overskirt were custom-made for this shoot by Nidel Dresses in Louisiana. It is a modified trumpet gown with a strapless, sweetheart neckline, and corset back. The removable overskirt features a jeweled belt, and layers of starry fabric. Light and flowy, and simply gorgeous! The cathedral length ombre blue bridal veil was from Over the Moon Bridal in Washington state. The dark blue bridesmaid gown was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs in Hartville, Ohio. The designer is Madeline Gardner for Mori Lee. It is a floor length gown with allover lace and sequins. Very sparkly!

The gentlemen wore stylish suits of their own. The groom’s dark blue tie, pocket square, and pocket watch were all provided by Groomsday. The groomsman’s silver bow tie was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs.

Describe any handmade, DIY or personal items.

The jewelry provided by LivyLynn Vintage is handmade and very unique. Their collection is eclectic and matched our bride’s fun-loving personality.

The dark blue gauze table runner on the outdoor tablescape was custom made and hand-dyed especially for this shoot by Thistle and Twill. There are little white flecks in the material of the runner, that are reminiscent of stars twinkling in the night sky.

Describe the tablescape elements.

We had three tablescapes for this shoot:

The indoor tablescape was created on the 200-year old dining table and chairs, which are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate. We used the navy blue satin tablecloth and napkins, and the navy diamond overlay, from L’nique Linens. The silver luxe charger plates are also from L’nique Linens. The china, silverware, and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The floral centerpiece was created by Alyssa Schlegel, and we used the gold cake topper from Ever Laser to complete the look. The favors are blue and silver wrapped Hershey’s Kisses, placed in small tulle gift bags printed with silver stars.

The cake table was located in the formal parlor of Spring Hill. The table was covered in the navy blue satin tablecloth and the silver medallion sheer overlay from L’nique Linens. The gorgeous four-tier navy blue and silver cake was provided by Gearhart Custom Cakes. The silver mirrored acrylic cake topper was made by Traditions Engraving. We also placed blue and silver star-shaped votive candles around the table for extra sparkle.

The third tablescape was placed outdoors on the terraced lawn of the Spring Hill home. Dining al fresco under the stars was the order of the evening for our couples. The table was draped in navy blue satin, with a silver sequin table runner and navy blue napkins. The china, silverware and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The centerpiece is the same one that was used on the indoor tablescape. We changed out the cake topper to a different silver one created by Traditions Engraving, The heavy pewter candlesticks were added to provide illumination into the evening hours.

‘Summer of Love’ – Fun 1960s Garden Wedding Inspiration

IMAGINE IT PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we’re going back to the swinging sixties – fitting really given the news today 🙁 – with a charming garden wedding inspiration shoot full of mod fashion, daisies (one of my favourite flowers) and super sweet details; all in a vibrant palette of white, yellow and green that screams Summer……

1960s Inspired Summer Daisy Wedding

“Welcome to the Summer of Love!  The 1960’s were such a cool era.  I love Mod looks, the glamorous hair and makeup, and the groovy fashions.  I also love bright colors and flowers.  Daisies were the perfect fit for this sweet little styled shoot, they are such cheerful and hearty flowers. I decided to use a bright yellow and white color scheme to bring it all together.  The overall look is fresh and light, perfect for summer!

We used two different bouquets.  One is a brooch bouquet of daisies, created especially for this shoot by Susie Kays Design.  The bridal bouquet was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and small fillers.  The bridesmaid bouquet was a mix of daisies.  The table centerpiece was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and fillers in a rustic teapot, set upon a vintage cake stand.

The cake by Cake Wasted was a beautiful three tier confection of perfection!  The bottom tier was hexagon shaped, covered in yellow fondant frosting and a delicate white geometric pattern.  The top two round tiers were covered in creamy white fondant frosting, and adorned with a cascade of handcrafted daisy blooms.  The golden cake topper, provided by Everlaser, read “I love your sunny funny face.”  It was a cute nod to one of my favorite actresses, Audrey Hepburn, and complemented the bright yellow color scheme of the shoot.

I wanted vintage attire for this shoot.  I chose an elegant, long sleeved cream gown, which featured a woven cream and gold top, and a wide gold belt, which looked amazing on Lauren.  On our bridesmaid model, Sammy, I chose a flirty sundress in light yellow with an overall polka dot design. We accessorised with a pale yellow birdcage veil, and short vintage gloves. On our groom Brandon, we kept a clean, classic look with a button down shirt, pastel bow tie and suspenders.  On Lauren’s adorable daughter Addie, we chose a light yellow shantung dress with a simple white organza overlay skirt that had a few floral appliques.

Our tablescape was an eclectic mix of items.  The lemon yellow satin tablecloth was topped by a daisy print runner, handmade by Laurie Wallick of Lorili Design.  We used beaded glass charger plates, white dinner plates with a basket weave detail, and smaller dessert plates with hand painted daisies on them.  Glassware was a combination of vintage green cut glass goblets, and small champagne flutes.  The matching napkins and napkin rings were also made by Laurie Wallick.  The centerpiece was placed on a vintage white cake stand.”

WEDDINGS

CHIC GEOMETRIC WEDDING IDEAS WITH A NEUTRAL PALETTE + GREENERY

  • Avra Studio together with Wedding Planner Love Laughter + Elegance shares this modern wedding inspiration a neutral colour palette with hints of gold, black and green, and statement geometrical shapes as well as on trend greenery!
  • “Photographer Nikki Avramovich inspired this editorial – she wanted to incorporate on trend geometric shapes into a light filled, industrial style setting for a modern wedding. The florals by Nikki’s Perfect Petal Designs were a mix of pretty white blooms and heaps of lovely greenery! The intention was to present a lush mix, adding softness and a fresh look for this urban backdrop and for a industrial chic wedding. The wedding cake designed by Gearhart Custom Cakes was a clean modern design, decorated with gold and marbled geometric shapes. This continued with the stationery by Gold Leaf Calligraphy, where table numbers, and menus were all created to reflect the statement geometric theme. Adding a gold sequin table runner and metallic gold charger plates, with modern gold cutlery- all added a contemporary touch of elegance too. The style of the attire was to feel luxe and modern. For the Groom, a classic suit and tie looked very dapper – and for the Bridal look we chose a dress by All Brides Beautiful which was simply stunning! The gown’s overlay element to the skirt gave it a sophisticated yet modern edge.”
