As creative beings, sometimes we need a day to just let our imaginations run wild and explore new ideas. I’m forever grateful for the group of wedding vendors that I’ve become friends with throughout the years. Friends that I can call up on a whim and say, “Hey, let’s create something beautiful next Thursday.” And then this happens 🙂
In reality, it takes a bit more planning than that, but this shoot was such a fun excuse to exercise our creative minds and create something unique. We chose the white washed space at Murray Mansion for obvious reasons. The venue is filled with character in every corner, and is absolutely perfect for a small and intimate gathering.
Creative genius Ariyl with Briar Loft turned the space into a foraged wonderland. With the idea of using lush greenery and minimal floral blooms, our ideas came to life. Renee with Elevate Events finessed the idea and made it tangible. Our model Lala Williams looked flawless thanks to Melody Sopa Artistry. There were so many creatives involved with this shoot who gave their time and talents to make this happen. They’re all listed below – please give them a follow!
