The Details

My focus on this shoot was the details. If you are planning a wedding or just got engaged and haven’t started yet, here is a post to inspire your planning. Everything that goes into a wedding is important to make it a beautiful day for you, your new spouse and your friends and family. That includes all the small and big details.

The color scheme can make or break how your wedding day comes together. You want to make sure your color scheme is consistent throughout the day. For this Styled shoot we chose to go with a neutral color and just one pop [and I mean a big pop] of color. So simple yet photographs so beautifully.

You know you can rent beautiful furniture pieces? YES! One thing I wish I knew about when I was planning my wedding. The Elements Preserves in Elgin have the most gorgeous pieces for you to choose from. (Link below) The featured piece in this shoot was the antique sewing machine. Yes, the machine was still in there! Which made this very heavy to transport. Still the beautiful details just brought this place to life.

Flowers are all the important element! Fresh flowers are always the way to go. Jordan from JC Eden (link below) has the most gorgeous, and I mean GORGEOUS arrangements. I’ve had had the pleasure of working with her a few times before and she never disappoints. Truly talented and knows her way around flowers! The beautiful bouquet fit perfectly with our style it goes well with everything!

This whole shoot was planned and styled by Sofi Torri and myself and I am already itching for another one but bigger! Thank you again to everyone who made this happen. Our models, Alexia & Alondra; Hair and Makeup Lidia; and Sofi’s sister for the cake; Jordan for the flowers and The Elements Preserves for the rentals.
