Blushing Bride: Styled Shoot by Michelle Leo Events and Jacque Lynn Photography
Be inspired by pastel-hued style and decor ideas for spring and summer weddings
Pastels are always popular for weddings, but blush, peach, and mint are having their moment in the spotlight. (Just look at Pinterest for proof!) Michelle Cousins of Michelle Leo Events and Jacque Erickson of Jacque Lynn Photography were inspired by the trio of sweet sorbet shades when designing this styled shoot at Le Chateau at La Caille. (You may have seen some of the photos here.) The shoot is dripping with pretty inspiration for spring and summer weddings!
Below, scroll through the dreamy photos, read more about Michelle and Jacque’s inspiration, check out a list of local vendors, and watch a lovely little film from the day of the shoot. Enjoy!
Michelle shares the scoop on she and Jacque’s sorbet-soaked inspiration for the shoot:
The moment Jacque shared her vision board and ideas for an inspiration shoot, I was completely sucked in. I couldn’t possibly say no to the possibilities of a soft blush and mint color palette, fluffy and romantic garden roses, and a sweet linen paper suite. I was practically drooling over my empty soup bowl during our lunch date. What began as a simple and inspiring image found in the pretty depths of Pinterest quickly transformed into a gorgeous and elegant fete that had me squealing with giddy excitement.
I began designing immediately, and found myself more in love with each element as it was brought to life. Sweet polka-dot china graced my staging table, and the smell of freshly stained wood filled my garage as my hubby created a custom-made table for the shoot. I wanted this concept to encompass softness, sweetness, romance, classic elegance, and timelessness. From the flowers to the china to the soft buttercream icing of a simple yet elegant three-tier cake, everything about this shoot just spoke to my soul.
The flowers consisted of large blooms including garden roses, peonies, anemone, and ranunculus. Paired with wispy and wild jasmine, each bouquet came to life, and the centerpiece stole my heart as it rested in an oversized, vintage milk-glass vase. Tea cups, polka-dots, rose patterned flatware, lace and gold glitter… I could go on and on about how much fun this shoot was to style. But I’ll stop here and let the images speak for themselves. Be still my heart…
The pretty doesn’t end here! Check out this lovely black-and-white film of the day’s events captured by Ryan Hinman Films:
