The Details

Finishing up on our previous Woodland posts, here are some of the detail shots that brought this shoot to life:

First: The Look
Hair and Make-up done by one of Utah's finest- Stephanie Brinkerhoff with Hair and Makeup by Steph

Second: The Dress
 A wedding wouldnt be complete without the perfect dress. Gateway Bridal had just that dress. From the Claire Pettibone collection, this dress accented Pam and showed her slender figure with its dainty lace overlay and cap sleave. If youre in the market for a beautiful and unique wedding dress be sure to check out Gateway Bridal.

Third: The Cake
The cake was the epitome of Woodland Wonder. Tasha with Cake-a-Licious did an amazing job bringing whimsy into the shoot with her four-layered masterpiece, complete with adorable toadstools. 

Fourth: The Venue
 The Bungalow was the perfect setting for our shoot and really set the tone for the whole design scheme. Mike- the manager, was a dream to work with and brought in some unique and delicious food to accomany our set. We conveyed to him our thoughts and he executed them with ease! Yumm!!!

 We keep the favors very close to our theme of the natural woods feel. What you may ask....? Jars of potting soil and wildflower seeds to grow your own terrarium.

The Flowers

The Bouquet

I know I say this about a lot of bouquets I do but honestly I loved the way this one turned out. I used a variety of ferns, viburnum berries, ranuculus, scented geranium leaf, scabiosa pods, hydrangea and accents of feathers and fern curls. We tied off the handle with burlap and adorned it with wired twine we left long.

The Decor

 We constructed a runner of various types of mosses including Spanish, reindeer, mood and moss rocks. Apothacary jars, mason jars and log candle holders were also intertwined between the green masses of moss.

The main centerpiece was made up of some of my favorite elements: sleek birch poles, chunks of natural tree trunk, fern curls, hydrangea, fern, scabiosa pods, mosses, handmade copper fern curls and the most adorable red toadstools.

Other accent pieces included deep wooden boxes which held birch curls, ferns, mosses and lotus pods. 

Our bride Pam was so stunning! 
She fit our earthy-beauty theme well. She wore a custom bridal crown made of copper link chain, jasmine vine and a single green ranuculus bloom. IN LOVE! 

Stay tuned for more images and in-depth designs in the coming days.

Woodland Wonder Inspiration Shoot

If you know me, then you know how much I love inspiration shoots. Like So naturally I found it necessary to team up with Utah's greatest invitation designer, Mollie with Polka Dots and Daisies to bring you another out-of-this-world photo shoot. 
Mollie and myself put are ingenious minds together to bring to you a one of a kind Woodland Wedding. A nod towards an nontraditional fall wedding with a twist of natural whimsy.

These STUNNING images were captured by none other than the incredible Camilla Binks of Camilla Photography and our new and equally amazing friend Brienne with Azure B Photography
