Icelandic Bohemian Barn Inspiration

I love Macrame. I’m also dying to go to Iceland. So when Dutch planner Nailia from Best Day Ever Events sent over shots from a styled shoot in Iceland, I was very excited. Oh, and there are baby lambs! Need I say more?

Styled by Nailia as part of a workshop through Portfolio Bootcamp in collaboration with Cest La Vie Weddings and photographed by Anouk Fotografeert there are tons of inspiration for couples who can’t get enough of that Boho vibe.

It would be an understatement to say that I would trade places with this model in a heartbeat for the chance to snuggle up with these guys.

So many beautiful details with the rustic florals, stunning calligraphy, and vivid pops of colors on the cake. Lastly, how gorgeous is this setting?

Garden of Eden Inspired Styled Shoot

When photographer Kat Wooten recently sent over photos from a Kansas City, styled shoot, I was immediately struck by the bright, bold colors.  A few years ago we held our own Indie Wed event in KC so I was excited to see some familiar names involved with this shoot.

The vendor team came up with a concept that was a little dark and moody incorporating the concept of ‘forbidden fruit’ into the lush florals. The models are stunning set among the Ha Ha Tonka Castle Ruins, which has its own history set in sadness and grief, starting with a fatal car accident and ending with a devastating fire.

Despite the haunting setting, these vendors delivered an inspirational shoot with elements that any couple could mimic. The cut cantaloupe was the most unexpected element and just proves that thinking out-of-the-box can produce beautiful results.

Lady Bosses Celebrate – A Galentine’s Day Shoot

So for any Parks & Recs fans out there, you know that Valentine’s Day is preceded by what some might consider to be an even more important day, “Galentine’s Day”. This unofficial holiday created by Amy Poehler’s TV character is a day for ladies to celebrate ladies. Transcending the screen into real life, Galentine’s Day celebrations have been popping up for the past few years now.

Photographer Sarah Heppell said, “ever since attending a Galentine’s bash an hour and a half away with my bff Jenn last year, I’ve wanted to create something locally that gave me the same warm and fuzzy feelings. The feelings I experienced when I was celebrating friendship in a room with 100 other gals, sipping on mimosas, listening to music, eating yummy treats and getting our craft on – happy, thankful, excited, and full from delicious food, to name a few. #ladiescelebratingladies style! So I created it on a small level. A styled shoot and after party for all of my lady boss business owning gal pals!!! We set up, did the shoot, and then enjoyed our labor of love and we photographed that, too! Happy Galentine’s Day!”

What a fun group. Maybe they can invite me next year! Do any of you celebrate Galentine’s Day officially or unofficially? Let me know in the comments.

Styled shoot with a big surprise!

Real life couple, Hayley and Dillon pose in this beautiful California styled shoot from Elle Lily Photography and Videography. The invitations set the tone for the floral inspired shoot with hints of watercolor touches throughout. Hayley looks beautiful in her custom gown while Dillon is absolutely adorable in her leather bow tie and suspenders. Just the right mix of casual and elegant.
