Sophisticated + Organic Styled Shoot

To say that we've started 2017 off with a bang would be an understatement! Not only are the barn renovations starting to take major shape, but this styled shoot that we hosted was the most perfect way to get us excited about what we have in store for this year.

I have to give a big high five to Cheyenne Kidd of Cheyenne Kidd Photography and Katharine Mann of Katharine Mann Wedding and Event Planning for all of their creative super powers that really made this whole thing come together. And what's even better, Cheyenne is an old family friend of ours, and I remember very vividly when she first started dabbling in photography. To see her work today is truly inspiring! She has incredible passion and talent that emulates through her photographs [the proof is in the puddin, y'all]... with that being said, let's get down to business: 

These floral designs by 4 Blossoms Florist were truly breathtaking. These arrangements are the definition of sophistication meets organic, I'm in love with every detail!

That dress though. It makes me want to prance through a field of wild flowers hand in hand with my super handsome and romantic husband [it gives me all.the.feels.]. It's what I would call 'simply beautiful'... and sexy. And who doesn't want to beautiful + sexy on their wedding day? A big thanks to Bellissima Bridal Boutique for providing the most perfect gown! 

That is what you call a dramatic gold drizzle, y'all. It's like edible art. We are so grateful that the insanely talented artists at Maxie B's crafted this lovely cake for us! 

Carson Thompson, our hair and MUA for the day, brought a whole new meaning to getting those eyes to pop. I'm definitely not a pro at this sort of thing, but when those smoky eyes got together with that dramatic lip color something just.felt.right. [how gorgeous was our model though? wowza.]

A big thanks to Cooke Rentals for, yet again, providing some great pieces for our tablescape! Cheyenne and Katharine's vision for all the jewel tones and organic elements created the most cozy, inviting and elegant table setting! Makes me want to scoot up right next to those two and share a bottle of wine and some baked brie... okay, maybe not right next to them, but I'd at least want a seat at the table. 

A big thank you to our lovely models, Brittany and James, who truly did light up every shot with those million dollar smiles!

So, there's the puddin for ya. Need I say more about Cheyenne's skills behind the camera? I think these images speak for themselves. We're feeling so blessed that she asked us to host this shoot for her! These images truly capture the essence of Circle M.

Here's to 2017, guys! It's going to be a good one...
