With our Texan winter finally coming to an end, we brought out our playful spirit in this styled shoot. It was a dream woven with thoughts of spring and southern loveliness- fitting, since its inspiration came from an actual dream of our own Natalie Dawley! She had imagined pulling a string of pranks on vendors at an event; we twisted it into an April Fool’s shoot that showcases a couple of “fools for love.”
A big thank you to Christa Elyce for capturing and lending her fun personality to the day! BHLDN provided our bride’s adorable spring frock, while Swift + Co. dressed our table. We crafted fool’s gold for table décor and carried that theme throughout our stationery suite, beautifully calligraphed by Everly Calligraphy.
Wow to Tamara Menges Design’s floral! Don’t the watercolor floral napkins + table runner complement beautifully the springtime flair of our venue, The Gardens of BammelLane? This inspired a fantastically fun guestbook option: have your guests watercolor a message for the bride and groom!
We wanted a southern dessert with a twist and MACARON by Patisse did a wonderful job of brainstorming with us and providing lemon meringue macarons, pistachio macarons and mini key lime pies that we will keep dreaming of!
