Simply Opulent Stylized Shoot
Ever thought about your wedding day? You’ll be surrounded by beautiful things and all of your friends and family. Sometimes the fact that you’re marrying your partner in life and soul mate can get lost in the shuffle. For this shoot, we decided to scale back the décor and the fuss and focus on the connection of the couple.
This stylized shoot was for couples and the love they share. A gorgeous venue was the backdrop to our â€œlove storyâ€?.
We set one simple table to give you an idea of what your reception tables can look like. Weâ€™re total fans of long tables and family style serving for weddings. Family style makes a lot of brides curious, so we wanted to give you an awesome visual.
Here is a close up of the table! This table is our favorite! Itâ€™s got all the fancies, but it still has a very clean look.
The color scheme was kept really simple and within the colors found in nature…blues and greens.
Thank you, Stephanie, Danielle, Alisha, Khaliah, and Chandler for making this vision come to life!
