Romantic Norfolk Botanical Gardens Shoot

One of my sweetest friends, also happens to be an incredible florist and when Courtney Inghram reached out to me to see if I wanted to collaborate on a shoot together, I instantly said yes! I loved the concept, a bride getting ready for her wedding day, and felt inspired by the gorgeous garden location. Two summers ago, I was haunting the local yard sales and hit the jackpot with two adorable pieces...an antique dresser and vanity. Someone had painted them a completely unfortunate shade of purple, so I cleaned them up and gave them new life with a fresh coat of soft white. I knew they would be the perfect additions to this shoot and boy they did NOT disappoint! I also had the cutest antique toolbox that made fun display for a mimosa bar. It was a freezing cold day...only 23 degrees!!! But it's one of my favorite...the appearance of a golden doodle puppy may have had something to do with that.
