We can hardly believe that it’s been almost two months since this shoot at Aurora Farms!! We’re ready to plan one again already! From the bright, vibrant florals, gorgeous white venue, adorable ice cream cart and so many other amazing vendors who made it all happen, this afternoon was a dream to photograph!
Laura & I had been thinking for a while that we would love to plan a styled shoot, but it definitely sounded a little daunting coordinating everything ourselves. When our friend Rachel also mentioned she’d been wanting to plan one, we decided that tackling it as a team was definitely something we could do!
[look at us all in our matching blue! of course!]
First step was to find a venue, and I had one in my mind since the very beginning of our planning! I’d seen countless weddings take place at Aurora Farms since it first opened in 2018 and I thought it would be the perfect bright and airy venue! They were so kind to let us use their space, and Yvonne was amazing to work with as we coordinated the shoot, especially since we had to change the date multiple times due to everything going on!
Allie with Katharine Marie Weddings not only let us borrow one of her gorgeous gowns from her bridal shop, but she came and helped with dress fluffing as well! She’s also been doing IGTVs throughout these months so you can go check out her Instagram if you want to see a preview of what she has in her shop! Whether you’re in need of a wedding dress or a wedding planner, reach out to her for sure!!
Anastasia with Your Special Day created a gorgeous bouquet, centerpiece & boutonniere that were full of vibrant flowers and made for a fun pop of color! Flowers add so much and are what really bring everything together! Anastasia does beautiful work so if you’re on the hunt for a florist for your wedding, check her out!
We’ve always heard amazing things about Cotton Rouge but never had the chance to work with them! Leigh with Cotton Rouge came to do our model’s hair and makeup and I think we can all agree she did an amazing job!
I wasn’t really sure what I was doing when it came to planning out the table set-up, but thankfully we have Pinterest for that 😉 …all I knew is that it had to include blue things 🙂 Professional Party Rentals is such a cool company and the number of items they offer for rentals is AMAZING! They made everything very easy for us and it all came together just as I’d envisioned!! (also just take a look at Anastasia’s flowers in the second photo! It was the perfect pop of color with the blue & gold!)
After following Christine on Instagram for a while and seeing her bake for some many Greenville events, we knew we’d love to have her be apart of our shoot! She was so generous to make a cake for us during a very busy season of the year! You can go follow her here at Baking Sweet Scents! We love following along and watching her bake everything from cakes to cinnamon rolls to macroons (which always look SO good!)!
Y’all should all know Alan by now and you might have noticed that we all do pretty much everything together…So of course when we were planning the shoot we decided he definitely needed to be there to make a video of the day! The drone shots were EPIC, so if you want to see the full video you can go view it HERE!
These two recently opened up their very own ice cream cart! I mean, how cool is that?? It hit me one day that they would be the perfect addition to the shoot and we were SO excited when they agreed to come! And if you’re wondering, the ice cream was just as good as it looks!! They’ve been doing pop-ups around Greenville with their cart and you can go follow them here to see where they’ll be at this week so you can grab some ice cream!! Clare’s Creamery
A HUGE thank you for all these vendors who made this shoot possible! And to our models, Emma & Dalton for putting up with not one, not two but three photographers & a videographer yelling out instructions 🙂 They were troopers! And now for all the pretty photos!!
