This shoot has been in the making for about 3 or 4 months. I’ve had some specific ideas about shooting with a lavender theme for a while. Kelsey and Chris were nice enough to let me put it all together and use them in my dream shoot. Some things didn’t work out quite like planned (original location was raining, designer dress too big, etc.) but when do they ever? It was all so lovely regardless! I had so much fun designing the table theme and how Kelsey was going to look that day. I even made the lavender cupcakes and lavender lemonade myself! I can attest (as can they) that they tasted great! Here are where some of the details came from (for bride’s that may be looking):
Kelsey’s make-up: Alison Kidney (Estilo Salon in West Des Moines)
Kelsey’s Hair: Liz Brown (Estilo Salon in West Des Moines)
Headband: Bohemian Headband made by Mignonne Handmade on Etsy
Various table details (vintage cupcake stand, vintage candle holder, vintage milk jug, bird cage and other items were all found on etsy from various stores)
I hope everyone loves this as much as I loved shooting it. We were very limited as a storm was headed our way, but we got about an hour in to shoot.
