Spring Fling Inspirational Photo Shoot PART ONE with Laura Leigh Photo!

I had the opportunity to work with one of my favorite photographers this April for a super fun spring photo shoot. I have have been working with Laura from Laura Leigh Photo for a few years and every wedding we do together turns out gorgeous on her blog! She is a truly talented and amazing photographer! We chose the setting at my in-law's residence in Pittsgrove, NJ. I always tell my husband how lucky he was to grow up in such a serene, secluded, and natural atmosphere. They live less than a mile from Parvin State Park and there is a beautiful creek behind their property. We took a few hours on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon and set up a bunch of backdrops. Enjoy Part One of Three! I'd love to give credit to our fabulous two sister-in-laws, Melissa and Melissa!
I wanted this bouquet to be romantic and earthy, so I picked some natural elements like cotton blooms. I used Romantik Antike garden roses, white and pink peonies, pink sweet peas, and Ilse spray roses. I added some bling with some of my champagne jewels and gold metallic skeleton leaves. Then my sister-in-law crocheted this ivory sleeve with custom buttons! We now offer these as an option in any color and button style for bridal and bridesmaids bouquets.
I love the fresh pinks against this mocha lacy dress and cowgirl boots!
Our tablescape featured burlap, bark, and cotton elements. It turned out so pretty. Tell me this isn't a dream location for a wedding ceremony!
I filled mercury vases with more Romantik Antike garden roses, and featured my new purple bottles filled with hydrangeas and cotton blooms.
It is simply a gorgeous location!
I love the look of a floating rose in this vintage faux fountain! I have some of these in my boutique for sale!!
This is such a fun photo with the reflection of the bouquet! I adored these flowers and the pictures turned out completely amazing! I am so excited to feature PART TWO and PART THREE! I think everyone will like what they see! A HUGE thank you to Laura and Shawn for spending the day with us and letting us meet precious Leah! She is absolutely adorable and we wish you guys so many happy times together!
