{ "A Kiss to Build a Dream On"...Styled Wedding Shoot}


Hello my lovelies! How are you? Gosh, where to begin? 
This Styled Wedding Shoot is inspired by love
Love at one of it's most anticipated moments...the kiss. Oooh La La! 
Hence, "A Kiss to Build a Dream on"...was born and all the details that stemmed from there.
 The color story is mint, blush pink, gold, and creams with whimsy and lots of romance. 
I am overwhelmed with thankfulness for the fabulously talented vendors who collaborated 
with me on this concept! Truly humbled by their talent and just plain amazingness :)! 
You should totally check out all their work :)! 
More on each of them coming soon :)...

I love Weddings, adore them, am smitten with the couples we meet and the stories they share.
 It is no wonder I became a Wedding photographer because I just can't get enough :). 
Styled Shoots are a lovely way to be creative and give brides to be a little inspiration
...and this one inspires that your dreams can come true :). 
Here are a few of my favorites...

Fabulous Vendors involved: 
Styling, concept, and coordination: Natalie Bray

A little glitter to begin the story...
 It all starts with a kiss...
Laughter and lovely light...and a glance to connect your hearts. 
Simply stunning blooms by Green Fresh Florals...peonies, aster, succulents, sweet peas, 
ranunculus and I am swooning!
Forever dreaming in love...

The cake brings a sweetness and Azucar is a master at her delicious creations...

We used an amazing vintage tool drawer as the container for the gorgeous blooms...adds a nice vintage feel to a soft and feminine color pallet.

A moment is all you need for the sparks to fly... 
 

Desiree and Jayson we wish you lots of moments and a life spent dreaming together...
