I’ve hinted at the photo shoot I styled over the summer so. many. times. in part because it was one of the best days ever. Why am I talking about it now…finally? Because Brunch & Bows is featured on Heart Love Weddings today! Please go take a peek! I am just so excited to finally share this day. Plus, I opened an Etsy shop yesterday where I’m selling a few of the items I designed for my shoot as well as a few inspired by it. What? Yes. This day rules. :)
Now for a bit of the why behind Brunch & Bows…
I poured my heart and soul into the design, and I thought of my entire concept on a walk in the middle of May after trying to brainstorm something new and different (and not necessarily a representation of my aesthetic) for far too long. I thought of pink and gold…and BOWS. These colors and details are things that I love at my core. I also decided on my event: a backyard brunch thrown by a bride in honor of her bridesmaids who have stood by her as she planned her wedding and who will stand by her again as she recites her vows and becomes a Mrs. I focused on designing some of the items myself (napkins, champagne flutes, garlands, and vases) and using what I had at home – my Nana’s lace tablecloth, my kitchen table, and my favorite vintage style dresser – to create a space that was both beautiful and affordable. I love pink and gold. I love bows. And I love making others feel special.
Welcome to my backyard. I hope you love Brunch & Bows (aka: my heart)!
All photos by Swoon Over It
This photo shoot is special to me for so many reasons in part because of the friends I collaborated with: Amanda from Swoon Over It photographed every detail, Sarah created all of the stationery, and McKay made the adorable favor – a pink seersucker bow clutch. These ladies are WONDERFUL.
P.S: I may or may not have left my bow garlands in the tree for a few days and sat and read under them (not strange…) because I just didn’t want to take them down. They were like magic (to me). :)
