Darling I Do ~ Inspirational Shoot

I think I have a hard time narrowing down favorites! 

This was a personal project I designed + put together. My vision came from this post on one of my favorite bridal blogs: Green Wedding Shoes. I fell in love with the song "Darling I Do" by Landon Pigg and Lucy Schwartz. To me, it was obviously one of the most perfect wedding songs written. Ever.


The world had less color without you. I was inspired.

And from this sprung the "Darling I Do" shoot. Whimsical and seriously colorful.

I designed most of the shoot. Made the tables from suitcases and window panes. Found the amazing vivid vases at Hobby Lobby. The cupcakes are from Rexburg's favorite cupcake cafe the Cocoa Bean.
Some of my favorite details are on the sign in table. In place of a sign in book, each guest could paint a colorful "signature" onto a canvas, making a unique and meaningful "art piece" for the couple. I also made custom crayons with the bride + grooms' names as colorful thank you presents.

OH! The floral arrangements. I cannot say enough about them. The lovely Kim Fortna + her team really latched onto the vision of this shoot. The flowers really pulled everything together. I loved the garland they did around the dessert table with the single stems in "test tubes" So unique. And the bouquets. I just died. Two of my favorites I've ever seen. The shoot would not have worked without you, Kim!!!

Both dresses are from the one and only Treasures. In my opinion, the best...the only place for gowns in south east Idaho. By far. I can't thank them enough!! 
The hair and makeup was done by the super talented Jenna Riding. The hairpieces were custom made by Charity Watson in Rexburg. I cannot believe how stunning they are - she really took the little description I gave her and ran with it! Perfection.
