In Full Bloom- Featured in Southern Wedding

Okay, so it may be just a tad chilly outside, but have no fear, this southern inspired styled shoot is about to warm you right up! Rich in romance and pretty petals, this visionary shoot, photographed by Ali Harper at the beautiful Serenbe Farms, was recently a part of Southern Weddings V7 and we're sure it will melt any frost away instantly.
You may remember us bragging about another shoot for Southern Weddings down at Serenbe last year, well this is another brain child from some of the very same folks! Once again, our darling and ever so mind-blowingly talented friend Krista at Blue Eyed Yonder took the reins, styling the details of the day, blending soft textures, dusty rose hues, and the wonderful whimsy of wildflowers. She never ceases to amaze us, and we're lucky that Ali Harper's amazing eye (and lens) were there again to fantastically frame each moment of this day. 
The wild spontaneity of wildflowers is perfect for a summer time wedding, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the way Victory Blooms' dreamy bouquets and centerpieces meshed with all of our seasonal stories. And to top it off, the lovely Mrs. Loesing, from Yes Ma'am Paper Goods, lent her skills for the the super sweet invitation suite and table runner menu. 
We think the lovely ladies over at Southern Weddings have the greatest taste, so flattered doesn't even skim the surface when we were selected to be a part of one of their features for the second year in a row! If you are a soon-to-be bride searching for some serious inspiration for your wedding, you've got to get yourself a copy of Southern Wedding V7. Even if you're nowhere near planning a wedding, do yourself a favor and get one anyways. It's PACKED with all sorts of pretty things!

Coloring Outside The Lines- Styled City Shoot

Aren't there some days you go to work, and you struggle to get through every minute of it? Well we've got that in common then. But then there are also days that you look around and think-- Wow! Is this really my job? How did I land this gig?!? The latter happens on days like this one; When we get to go "work" with our darling friends in the industry, dance across brightly painting walls, and are surrounded by vibrance from all angles. Pinch us, we must be dreaming! 
We headed to Weside Cultural Arts Center, where inspiration is begging to be found, and met up with a few top notch vendors including the absolutely remarkable Juli Vaughn, who was mastermind behind  the event design, floral design and styling with this delightful day. It should come as no surprise that Juli was responsible for this shoot; it screams Juli's name. Vibrant, fun, full of energy! Inspired by Atlanta's Living Walls project, Juli and Genya at Vue teamed up and started brain storming on ways to celebrate the city scenes that we sometimes take for granted. Well guess what? They've got our attention. Coordinated by the marvelous Melissa of Pretty Swell Parties, and photographed by one of our most talented Studio1658 photographers, Vue Photography, this shoot is so full of life, it explodes off the screen, and we cannot get enough! Are you ready for a little more razzle-dazzle now too?
For our menu, we supplied eye-catching and mouth-watering morsels. Mission figs stuffed with soft brie + wrapped with honey bacon and drizzled with honey, check. A gorgeous and fresh heirloom tomato stack with Buffalo mozzarella + baby arugula + avocado vinaigrette, check. And an amazing Vietnamese green curry lobster over black risotto with purple basil shoots, check. Just like the other elements of this styled shoot, this menu was a great way to breathe life into what can sometimes seem like same ol' thing. Every piece of this photo shoot is a breath of fresh air, and a great reminder that traditional weddings, although they are beautiful and timeless, aren't for everyone, but that are some great alternatives out there!  

Such an incredible way to spend the day!  Check out Ruffled's feature on our sweet little city shoot, and for more details about the contributors on this shoot, be sure to take a look at the credits below.
