I’ve been dreaming about the day I’d get to shoot this – a wedding designed and conceptualized and styled by yours truly. A wedding inspiration shoot that was only possible because of the collaborative efforts of some seriously amazing people. So many talented creatives and professionals came together to make this a success, and my bestie Nadia with A Fine Fete Events helped channel my scattered and ADD ideas (oh, look! something shiny!) into more than I could have possibly imagined. From a custom made wedding gown, to rare pink roses and succulents, to perfectly matched desserts and expertly designed paper goods, a host of Etsy artisans and a few local vendors joined forces and enabled me to create something that completely exceeded my expectations, and over the course of the evening, allowed me to capture so of my most favorite images. Ever.
This could not have been even remotely possible without the help of the following people – to whom I owe so incredibly much:
Event Planning: Nadia Glynn/A Fine Fete Events
Paperie/Graphic Design: Jeff Glynn Studios
Flowers: Jennifer Frisbie-Link
Gown & Veil: Glory by Jeannie Lee
Makeup: Brynn Andre
Handbag: Luc Ends

A huge shout out to my mom for lending me her vintage silver and china, to the Rice Creek Park Board for not kicking us out of your beautiful wildflower meadow, to my husby for being so crazy supportive all. of. the. time, to my bestie for being more than just my favorite wedding planner, and to everyone who’s ever had a dream and toiled and sweated and just. kept. pushing. until it came true.
And especially big thank you to Chelsea and Andrew – for living your love in front of my camera, and for being exactly who you are.
