That’s what makes shoots like this one so fun! It brings the most creativity out of the vendors. We’re free to create as much as our hearts desire!
We also fully realize it’s not all practical. That’s not the point of these types of shoots. The point is to inspire. Get the creative juice flowing for those planning a wedding. My hope when photographing inspiration shoots is that couples see one thing they can take from it and apply to their own day!
Maybe it’s lining an envelope with a beautiful liner like you’ll see below. Or having your florist hand craft a staple piece for your day like Meristem’s incredible floral arch. How about incorporating fruit into your bridal bouquet? Yes, seriously, fruit! Or maybe even stepping out of the box a little an using velvet with leather, gasp. The sky (ok and budget) is the limit!
Hopefully, this shoot will do just that. It inspired me. I still can’t get enough of that beautiful bridal model in the long sleeve blush Hayley Paige gown.
I am so honored to finally share it with you here now that it’s been shared on the ever beautiful Ruffled Wedding Blog. It’s worth a few minutes to click over there to see even more of this Merrimon Wynne Wedding inspiration shoot.
