When I first saw this styled shoot, I couldn't help but think of my 8 year old self, who couldn't have dreamed up a better princess garden party if I had tried! Lots of flowers in soft pinks and purples, crystal candlelabra, and long flowing gowns make this bridal luncheon the stuff little girl's dreams are made of. "Starting with the idea of a garden party, we mixed in romantic colors, timeless china, unique chairs and beautiful decor to create the perfect bridal luncheon. We loved the thought of our bride setting aside time to eat brunch with her ladies - and why not wear those beautiful gowns?" shared the photographer Riette of Clearly Perceived Photography.
The shoot was dreamed up and designed by Erin Padgett of Erin Padgett Events, who coincidentally, ended up being the perfect bride to model the blush Lee-Ann Belter wedding gown that her and Riette selected for their shoot!
