Happy Spring everyone! After monnnthsss of waiting to find out if this gorgeous shoot would be picked up by a magazine or blog, I'm so incredibly excited to share that it was finally featured on Style Me Pretty this past week and now I can finally to share these beautiful pictures with you! You can find the full post located here. Sidenote - I have been kind of obsessed with SMP's blog basically since I got into this business, so to finally be featured has me over the moon happy!! :)

Last summer, the fabulous Francesca from Pure Luxe Bride approached me about participating in a styled photo shoot that she and the talented Julie Livingston from Julie Livingston Photography were collaborating on, and of course I said yes! The design concept was to be "Romantic Tuscany" with hues of dusty rose, light rose, eggplant, shades of light green, and pops of gold. The venue was located at the historical and wonderfully intimate Magnolia Plantation. Enjoy!

The design incorporated olive branches in combination with a romantic script font, both of which worked well to create a fun monogram that was used throughout the rest of the stationery.
