Styled Shoots

“In Full Bloom”: A Styled Shoot in St. Louis, MO

This eye-catching styled shoot was inspired by the beauty of the spring/summer season and the modern-day bride that is sophisticated and likes to make a statement. We’re in love with this carefully curated design which included vibrant colors and lush florals. A beautiful and trending detail is the rice paper sails, which elegantly elevate a plain white cake. To stay in theme, the cake is surrounded by a bed of flowers.

Event Planner and Designer, Breanna Parker-Gills of Parker Gills Events shares more of the vision behind the shoot: 

“We wanted to inspire brides to think beyond décor on the table and create moments for other elements throughout their wedding. In addition, the floral pillars enriched with greenery are the perfect backdrop to center couples during a ceremony. The stationery, napkin, and bride’s accessories all tied into the bright, bold and chic mood of this shoot.”

The tablescape is gorgeous and chic, and so is the bride wearing a sleek, fitted L’amour Calla Blanche gown. To add a pop of color to the look, she rocks a pair of hot pink satin Badgley Mischka pumps. See more of the gorgeous details captured by Jordan K Gresham Photography!
