Did you get to see the styled shoot I was apart of on Green Wedding Shoes yesterday?! No? Well go – here – quick! If you don’t know what a “styled shoot” is or haven’t heard the term – it’s essentially a mock-up of a real wedding (or in this case, a bridal shower). A wedding vendor in each category comes together with a unique theme and creates an entire shoot. What I love about styled shoots is it’s a way to showcase your talent as a vendor, but more importantly, inspire other brides to re-create something for their own wedding! And this shoot if filled to the brim with unique + new ideas!
When Christy of One Handspun Day asked me to be a part of this shoot – I was so honored! We’ve worked together in the past on other shoots and I just love her friendship + talent in the two years I’ve known her! Here’s a bit about this shoot from Christy – “Desert Blooms is a bridal shower concept that was inspired by the Southwest and is infused with whimsical bohemian girly glam. I wanted to set the bridal shower in a cactus garden that was filled with quirky finds such as a covered wagon and chairs painted with donkeys. Cassandra of Borrowed Blu and I worked together to create all of the DIY details and to make this bridal shower an event that could be recreated or easily adapted to other events.”
Christy then created a DIY Guidebook that you can purchase on her site to recreate this shoot! Lots of DIY tutorials and how to use this for any event! Check out the shoot below with my fav. images from the day…
Thank you to all these lovely people below who worked hard and showed up to the shoot!
