a boho woodsy wedding shoot

So wedding season is in full swing. I have loved getting to go to real weddings and capture the magic (my feet on the other hand haven't, standing up all day is no joke), but there is something so fun about setting up a stylized bridal shoot. Basically, this is where a bunch of different creatives come together to bounce off of each others talent.

I got to be the girl behind the camera for this one, but I wanted to just introduce & thank the others involved.

This whole shoot idea popped into my head when I was antique shopping in the West Bottoms in downtown Kansas City and saw a fun vintage pink couch. Thankfully they let me rent it. The store is called Martins Memories.

The other furniture in the shoot is from a new company called Wonder and Whimsy Events (@wonderandwhimsyevents on insta) -- they rent out the cutest boho decor lounges along with the coolest tipi to host events under! I don't know if anyone else enjoys anthropologie inspired decor as much as me, but it was pretty much a dream set up.

My lovely friend (@sierra_hoehn) was so kind to model for me. She's a natural! And she is wearing Cassandra Grace  (@cassandragracebridal). She creates beautiful and customizable dresses that can be found on her etsy shop. When I went to pick out dresses, I fell in love with this gold one. Even though its not your typical wedding dress, I'm really into the whole alternative bride thing. We pretty much chased the sun for a combo of a golden dress and golden hour and the results were so dreamy.

Our male model, Grayson Arachtingi (@graysonpma) was so awesome. I found him on instagram and just crossed my fingers that he would show up in real life. And he did! He even reached out to Houndstooth (@houndstoothkc), who was on board to style him for the shoot. He ended up being  so well dressed.

@yummiesbyyoka made a naked cake for us, and @emmaoldmedfloral dressed it up with some beautiful blooms. Emma also made a bouquet and greenery piece.

@hair.bycher did Sierra's hair and makeup! 

And last but not least, @itsdevynmoore made the invitation suite. Dev is an old friend from high school and she is so talented! She is also making my new logo which is exciting :) 

As you can see, ALOT of people were involved in this, so it was really fun to see it all come together. Big thanks to them all, it was a boho wedding dream come true.
