This styled wedding shoot was a dreamy shoot to be a part of!
Jessica with Lallier Event Design dreamed this gorgeousness up and allowed me to have freedom with the stationery (YAY!!). The shoot took place at McGill Rose Garden and the garden itself was the main inspiration from where the whole Stationery look came from. Jessica had a great vision as to what elements she wanted to incorporate and from there, this is what was dreamed up!

I am so excited to share these beautiful images from Melanie and Andrew’s wedding in the mountains of Asheville at Claxton Farm. The bride’s vision of a soft elegant mountain feel translated perfectly into their gorgeous wedding day. Full vendor list below!
I met up at the initial consult with the sweetest, most soft-spoken southern lady. She begins to tell me all about her handsome hubby, how he’s turning 40 this year …. and she would love to throw him a surprise party but she’s not quite sure what the “theme” should be … or if there should be one. so …. as I would normally do, I ask about the person … what’s he like? what are his favorite hobbies? …. etc.
WELL …. the answers surprised me … to say the least.
Here are just a few:
he likes ‘lil wayne AND pavarotti
he likes hermes (and he owns hermes pieces)
he’s a HUGE social butterfly (i.e. could be the honorary mayor of charlotte)
HUGE panther fan
had a pet tarantula and a pet snake
loves squirrel hunting
double lettered in fencing and cheerleading
I will keep the rest of his “likes” under wraps – but you get that this guy is a CHARACTER, right?!?
I totally had my work cut out for me. The brainstorming commenced.
All I could think of is – this guy is someone EVERYONE would love knowing … and once they knew him, they probably loved him, loved being around him, loved hanging out with him, loved his infectious character …. so I blurted out the most random idea for an invitation and the whole event took on a life of it’s own.
We came up with a fun “fan club” party invitation since he seemed to have a huge friend base … and let’s face it … who wouldn’t want a party like this …. CHECK IT OUT!
The handsome Greg Olsen made an appearance (swoon)
THIS CAKE! Describes all of his likes + passions … served by none other than “Lil-Lil Wayne”.
