"Elegant & Enchanting..."

Inspiration can come from almost anything. When chatting with my vendor friend Esmee Kyles, of Incredibly Wee Photography, during a brainstorming session about the possibilities for what we wanted to create, we found one thing to be consistent: nature. We imagined nice clean earth tones and woodsy elements. But in considering the time of year we were going into, we knew jewel tones would have to play an intricate part. The picture below was found via Pinterest and used as our inspiration, as it carried all of the details we mentioned when we first got started.

This shoot was driven by the desire to have two members of the Munaluchi Bridal Coterie come together and create magic. We knew the idea had to be fresh and new in order to grab the attention of our audience. So we thought how inspiring it would be to capture the beauty of a full on pre-ceremony photo shoot, including all of the fixings of a first look, sweet notes, and love. We chose models who happened to have recently celebrated 10 years of marriage, which added an extra element of chemistry. We found it difficult to choose one specific part of the day as our favorite, as we were swept into their romance. Our chosen color combination added to the richness of it all, with variations of blues, purples, greens, and gold. We are so in love with all of these details...and their love. Take a look a what we created below!

"Enchanting, majestic, elegant, and sophisticated are some of the words that immediately come to mind when enjoying this gorgeous styled shoot. Featuring a real couple having just celebrated their ten year anniversary, the rich and lush color-palette makes this styled shoot practically jump from imagery. It is texturally pleasing, with gorgeous florals, and complete with a very successful geode inspired cake."

"...best of all for a moment I slipped back to 10 years prior to our real wedding day. I got butterflies thinking about Vaughn seeing me for the first time. We wrote notes to one another, and he even surprised me with an additional card. We laughed and shared some quiet moments which is almost impossible with our band of merry little men. And we were lucky enough to have it all captured for us to look back on forever... What a gift!"
