The Secret Garden | An Avante Garde Wedding Inspiration

I could not be more excited to share this post with you guys! Back in July I got the opportunity to work with some AMAZING vendors and today I get to share it with you! This shoot took months of planning but it was so worth the the wait because it was featured!! You can view the feature here and the DIY tutorials here, here, and here. Lindsay Jani of Simply Sunshine Events was the coordinator, designer, and DIY-er for the shoot and is just awesome to work with! Many of the details like the monagrammed plates, etched champagne glasses, and even the 3-D invitations were made by her and are simple enough that anyone can use them to make their wedding beautiful and unique with just a few simple details. Stefanie of Bits and Pieces provided all of our rentals and furtniture, and trust me she had WAY for than just a few bits and pieces. Her warehouse is chalk full of amazing vintage finds for weddings, it was hard for us to choose! And no wedding or shoot would be complete without florals and our were from the very talented Laura Clare and her team at Laura Clare Floral Designs

The overall idea of the shoot was to do something that was different but what could still be called elegant and Lindsay made it happen! I am so lucky to have worked with the amazing vendors that I did and at such a beautiful venue such as Oakeside Mansion. Thank you to all of the vendors involved and Jennifer and David, our lovely models (who are really getting married next year!) and enjoy a few of my favorites!
