Ok, the cat is finally out of the bag… the engagement party inspiration photoshoot I designed last fall has made it to the world wide wedding web! I’m so thrilled to be a part of a blog that I’ve admired for so long; Green Wedding Shoes.
This amazing shoot was brought to life on the grounds of Stella Plantation, where each oak tree is more magical than the last. Maile Lani shot the entire thing on film, giving the images a light and airy feel.
The peacock feather was a constant design element throughout, right down to the paper goods! This is the Odette Suite from Val Marie Paper.
The florals were as close to perfection as you can get; the creative genius of Kim Starr Wise.
Since this was an engagement party, I wanted the attire to be sparkly and fun, and knew exactly who to turn to: Camilyn Beth and Margaret Elizabeth both sold at Hattie Sparks (best NOLA clothing boutique!). Our models, Katie and David are a real life couple, and former Mrs. Vintage clients!
I love Katie’s hair and wanted her hair and makeup to be fun, but not fussy. Kiss and Makeup did an outstanding job, she looked absolutely stunning, yet not overdone.
No New Orleans engagement party is complete without a Sazerac bar! Beautiful signs courtesy of Val Marie Paper.
