I’m not a girl who usually feels speechless, but all I can say is THANK YOU. Our amazing vendors made this peaches and cream dream come true. Every part of this day went seamlessly thanks to the fantastic people involved. Check out each of these vendors. You won’t be disappointed!
This gorgeous gown just arrived back from a shoot in Ireland in time for us to swoop in and steal it for the day. Thank you to Francesca’s Bridal Salon-It was PERFECT.
Kristi and Mara, ladies from Behind the Veil, kept Lindsay and Matt looking flawless!
Jill Jenkins is a VERY talented friend of mine. She works for Elle Designs and has amazing vision. She’s a designer and planner, and I absolutely adore her attention to detail!
Flower arrangements by Connie Clark of Violet’s Florist. Who DOESN’T love a live floral halo? Swoontastic!
The custom stationary and paper goods you see throughout the blog were created by EAlexDesigns. Owner Erin Alexander is another close friend of mine, and her work has been featured in multiple AKP blogs. She always comes up with something fresh and original, which excites me for each of our projects. :)
Jill said we had to have a violin. She was right!
Lindsay and Matt were naturals! Models for the day, they are actually due to be wed in December. Look for more of them on the blog next week. We followed up this gorgeous shoot with some engagement photos!
This entire set up was Jill’s original vision. I remember her sketching it out when we met weeks ago. With much thanks to Vintage Affairs, we were able to get all of the pieces we needed to complete the scene. Owners Juli and Jim Wolf also invited us into their home and onto their land to put this together. They went above and beyond, providing us snacks and drinks during our shoot. They are so incredibly sweet and have an amazing inventory of vintage items to rent!
Despite not having any photos of Lee in action, I need to give a special shout out to Lee Russell Films. Lee spent the day with us working with me on segments for my promo video. I am so excited to share that with everyone later this year.
The custom beaded lace head wrap was provided by Jasika of TwoBackFlats. I was so excited to find she was local to me when I moved, that I immediately reached out to her for pieces for this styled shoot. You will definitely be seeing more from her on the AKP blog as well!
