French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration Hope Taylor Workshop | Richmond, VA


Last week I shared a RECAP of this month’s Hope Taylor Workshop. Today I am sharing the styled shoot images from day one and I’ve been DYING to get these on the blog for you! I was going to say that these were “highly anticipated”…but maybe I’m the only one who is that obsessed with them. Haha!! I had the opportunity to work with an INCREDIBLE line-up of creative vendors to bring this shoot to life, and they all happen to also be real-life friends. This shoot has turned into one of my favorite workshop shoots (and that says A LOT) so I am feeling crazy grateful each time I scroll through this post!!!

There are a lot of “thank you”s to give for this shoot, so let’s start with the mastermind behind it all: Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events. She helped me plan and execute this shoot in every way – I can’t thank her enough!!! Paisley and Jade in Richmond, VA was the perfect venue to host (and has the most stunning light to shoot) and their team always gives me the best service I could ask for. The furniture pieces featured in this shoot are all from their incredible inventory!

Courtney Inghram brought my fluffy floral dreams to life, Sorby Sweets created the most stunning cake (and even brought us all cupcakes to share!), Bombshell ROCKED hair and makeup (as always!), Bridal Impressions gave us a DREAM of a bridal gown and Alex of Prairie Letter Shop provided an invitation suite that dreams are made of. My sweet friends Erika and Josh (who are getting married in May!) modeled for myself and the attendees and I really could just stare at these images all day long!!!

Enjoy my favorites from our southern and French blue inspired wedding! XOXOX!
