Little White Chapel

When Emily Scott fromĀ Gem Photo approached us about designing a photo shoot for her, we were excited. When she told us about her concept, we were over the moon.

Emily wanted us to design something that was inspired by the 60′s, but not overly retro. She wanted her bride in a dress that her mother may have worn before her. And she wanted something clean, modern, and whimsical. Emily had already selected an AMAZING shoot location – a pretty little white chapel located on the coast, north of San Francisco. So we built our design around this concept – mixing bold patterns with classic sophistication, and clean modern with a bit of whimsy.

We loved the idea of a church elopement. We created an intimate table for two, complete with a confetti “runner.” Amber Moon from Pitbulls and Posies took this idea and ran with it – creating a wedding announcement that proclaimed, “We Did It.” The ladies from Cupcakes Couture created a custom cake for us that we would have died to have at our own weddings. Yasmin from Floral Theory took our inspiration and created a dreamy bouquet, as well as the pretty little centerpieces. Camille Monique perfected our bride’s look with classic hair and makeup. And of course, everything is better with ban.do – we used a sequin heart as our groom’s “boutonniere,” and the bride wore a sparkly hair clip. A gold sequin mini heart added the perfect accent to our place setting.

We are so grateful to have worked with this AMAZING team. Check out the gorgeousness that our team created below and THANK YOU SO MUCH to Jen from Green Wedding Shoes for the feature!!! Enjoy the story.
