Just because the summer is offically over doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy a little fun outside. I absolutely love having people over and entertaining, brining everyone together to enjoy in each other’s company is the best. That’s why I feel in love with this Al Fresco inspired styled shoot courtesy of IYQ Photography, we kinda love them because they are from my hometown. 🙂 Check out our Spring Issue which has another styled shoot from them here.
Details from the photographer:
Our friends at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden so kindly let us style this shoot these. We wanted to incorporate elements of hearty natural touches- craft menus, a gorgeous farm table, rosemary place settings/herbed bouquet for an al fresco inspiration. Our gorgeous model, Michelle Tlili rocked a garden style wedding dress. We loved the classy touch of the boat neck collar and empire waistline. Jeff Ocampo assisted on the shoot coordination. Paisley & Jade generously lent the table and mismatched wooden chairs to give the shoot a rustic feel as well. Erin Eaves also assisted in this shoot. Michelle’s look was completed with some fun flirt makeup by Heather Toler and Raegan Gibson of Sweets and Soirees created a darling floral crown in place of a veil.
