Spence Vineyards | Angwin, California
“Once upon a time there was a shoot styled by Very Merry Events that was so gorgeous, it made me want to do high-kicks and shout my love from the blogging mountaintops.” -Style Me Pretty
If you’ve been following our blog, then this shoot may seem familiar from when we gave you a sneak peek a few months back. We are so excited that not only was this photo shoot a key spread in the current issue of Today’s Bride Magazine, but Style Me Pretty thought it was so fabulous, that they decided to feature even more of this whimsical storybook inspired wedding.
Part of Mary’s original design concept, and the back story for this wedding, was the tale of a boy who meets a beautiful girl. He makes her smile, together they love to read books, eat cake, and travel the world together. This theme is carried out in the film as well as on Mary’s prop wall where key words are exchanged with key items to symbolize this story.
Here is our handmade film to take you behind the scenes of this magical and romantic fairytale wedding.
Once I saw the full photo gallery from Tinywater Photography, I fell even more in love with this shoot and I knew that our readers would want to see all the pinworthy goodness of this faux wedding. I have picked out just a handful of my favorite images but hop on over to SMP for the entire gallery, you will not want to miss a thing!
I mean, who doesn’t want a table runner made of just flowers? Love it!
Watching the ladies put this together was inspiring!
From Mary’s amazing design, to gorgeous florals from Atelier Joya, and all the decadent details, this shoot is one for the books. Unique and fun vintage furniture finds from Heritage & Craft along with rich and colorful paper goods from Jen Simpson Design are just some of the great layers of detail that added to the charm of this storybook wedding.
