Paper Wedding Dress

Yes, you read that right. This wedding dress was made out of paper, and boy was it incredible.

Let’s just take a minute to pick our jaw up off the floor and admire this work of art. Incredible... Just incredible.

Burgundy and White Paper Wedding dress

After endless hours of dreaming, brainstorming and designing, this creation came to life. It was handcrafted to perfection with each piece accounted for and hand placed to create such a masterpiece.

This styled shoot began with the unimaginable paper wedding dress and soon transformed into a chic and unique shoot, blooming rich with color.

Knowing we had to match the talent of the incredible paper dress, we researched and designed a backdrop that would not disappoint. Choosing to incorporate the colors of the dress in the backdrop we criss-crossed the burgundy and gave it space to illuminate the depth and feel.

There were so many incredible vendors involved in this project, including Sadie’s Couture Floral. Their ginormous fern arrangements provided the texture, volume, and color that this shoot needed!

I don’t know if another shoot could ever beat this one! I am still in shock of all of the talent involved in making this idea come to life.

Literary theme style shoot

Weddings don't always have to be BIG and LOUD. They can be soft and sweet as well. It's all about the love between the couple, and if its just family celebrating, then that's just as grand! 

The wedding day is about you. So make it about you. Pick your favorites, put them together, and have the best day ever! 

We loved getting to be a part of this Literary style shoot because it gives us a glimpse into just how sweet these small weddings can be!

If you read our previous blog post, then you know just how important a theme can be. This style shoot was all about books, love stories and romance, which definitely shinned through in all the small details.

Sometimes simple can make a statement as well. I mean...LOOK at this sweet waterfall of cafe lights!

Whether your wedding is a BIG get together or small gathering, make sure to find those little moments that you and your significant other can share together as newlyweds.

Redeemed Farm Styled Shoot

This recently opened farm venue north of the Twin Cities was the perfect place for a styled shoot. The day was spectacular, and the people involved were just as incredible. The atmosphere of this setting was a great space for trying out some new rustic ideas with a sweet, elegant undertone. Filled with greenery, lavender hues, and soft grey chiffon, the historic ambiance of the barn was complimented well. Check out some of our favorites shown below!

Winter Wonderland Styled Shoot

Late last year I had an opportunity to work on a winter wonderland styled shoot, organized by Maddie at Ask For the Moon Events. The Outing Lodge, a turn of the century European stately home, was the perfect setting for our rustic meets glam winter shoot. The day was especially magical as we experienced the first snow fall of the season. Highlights of the shoot included a visit from Lexi the husky, a chandelier backdrop, and jewel adorned cakes!
