I am really excited to share this beautiful bohemian Salt Lake City styled session. I will spare you the details of the string of bad luck that led up to it because truly the outcome was better then I could have imagined. I had a team of amazing vendors who helped to create this perfect romantic and bohemian setup, complete with awesome details! I owe a HUGE thank you to Angela Hooper (the best hair and makeup artist, I mean look at that beautiful eye look she created!!) who created this shoot idea with me and Liz Fisher the most amazing and supportive friend who also is so good at what she does (I mean look at that table setting!) and she did so much behind the scenes for me. These two made the trip down to Salt Lake with me and we made some magic, oh and I tried In-N-Out for the first time! YUM! It was quite the little weekend adventure!
The studio space was incredible and Miesh was so great to work with, it’s safe to say we all wanted to move in to the space haha! I mean look at all that gorgeous light. The dress from Made with Love was a dream and everything I could have hoped for, especially on Alyssa!! Which can we talk about how adorable Alyssa + Brandon are? They are total sweethearts and I cannot thank them enough for doing the shoot with us, so THANK YOU Alyssa + Brandon. I loved that Brandon came and hungout while Alyssa was getting her hair and makeup done. Not everyday a guy gets to watch the process. That and you could tell these two were just totally in-love ( all the heart eyes!). As always Olive Avenue had a stunner of a ring that I would be lying if I said I definitely didn’t think about taking it home with me! Brandon’s tie from Dazi was the perfect addition to his suit as well. I loved how well the colors and pattern went with the florals. Amanda at Sugared Memories created the coolest macrame adorned cake that was a stunner. We added a piece of blood orange that really popped and added just the right amount of texture. The table scape was exactly how I pictured in my head. I loved how the himalayan pink salt and fruit slices added so much texture. And the ombre napkins added the perfect tie in to the invitation suite Alexis at Darling devotion created. Can we talk about those amazing personal vows. WOW! She is so talented! I ended up brining my coffee table with to use as the table because I wanted to create an intimate lounge/dinner setting. I thought a setting low to the ground with a big rug and pillows would really create that look. Logan, of The Merchant Collective had the PERFECT pieces to make the space feel bohemian and cozy and created that perfect intimate setting. Logan had the perfect Rug to finish off the backdrop as well. I loved creating the ceremony backdrop, it actually was part of my own weddings decor so it was fun to see it get some time in the sun again. I loved tying in the tassels after seeing what Alexis was creating with the name cards. Mandy of the Potted Pansy created some serious stunners for us. That floral installation and bouquet were so beautiful and the colors were so soft and romantic!
I put my heart and soul into this styled shoot and am so proud of it. It takes a lot of work and moving parts coming together but it’s always so cool to see the end result!
I also want to say a thank you to my husband for always supporting me, and letting me be creative and do what I need to do when I get an idea in my head! As well as helping me with bringing things to life like the backdrop. A big thank you to Julia Holderness as well, because she gave me more then a few pep talks when I was beyond stressed, and always has such encouraging and real things to say to me. And Last but certainly not least Kylie Liljegren for being such a sweet friend to me since moving to Idaho and willing to literally lend me her wedding dress when things were all a mess. She also connected me to Alyssa + Brandon, so beyond thankful for her.
Ok enough words, enjoy!
