Organic, romantic, and full of love, this beautiful styled shoot from Caroline Lima Photography, Leigh Pearce Events, and Amy Lynne Originals is making us all kinds of happy today. Using a real-life married couple whose chemistry absolutely radiates, there’s no shortage of great ideas for various wedding vignettes — you’ll spy drink stations, dessert tables, an organic tablescape, a chic lounge, and so much more. The team pulled out all the stops, and it shows!
From the designer, Leigh Pearce Events: This shoot was born out of a conversation I had with a local venue about our shared passion to support our local LGBT community. What started as a simple concept slowly transitioned into a massive styled shoot with all the bells and whistles. If we were going to dream up the ultimate wedding for our dream couple, why not shoot for the stars and include every detail that an actual wedding may have? From invitations to welcome bags to food and beverage to a tablescape and more, we pulled together every element that we could to inspire engaged couples for their own wedding. The shoot’s design was festive, chic, and rustic with a color palette of wisteria, wine, mauve, grey, cream and green.
The icing on the proverbial wedding cake was our real life married couple, Sarah and Catherine, who graciously agreed to be our models and play dress up for the day. This piece of the puzzle was hands down the most important to our concept. We needed a real couple so the love we captured on camera was authentic and relatable. This shoot went beyond a fun way for our businesses to stretch our creative muscles (although that was an added perk!!). Collectively, we believe in sharing more quality imagery online to the LGBT wedding community. We see you and we want you to see yourselves in our work.
