The first thing that crossed my mind once this shoot came through my inbox was, this is an album showcasing the quintessential home wedding. Even though our backdrop is actually a B&B in Texas, there's a homey feel to it. Little is written or covered on the wedding blogs and publications out there on this subject. Having your wedding at home, in a place that's familiar and full of memories can be comfortable and gorgeous simultaneously. My mother was so sentimental about the prospect of a home or garden wedding, she had hoped I'd have one when the time came (I didn't).
Sonia Melendez of C. Baron Photography has given us a heap of inspiration here. She says, "It all started with a dress. We fell in love with Damsel White Labelâ's â Lindsay Dress. So much so we knew we had to use it in an innovative and refreshing way. We were dreaming of a perfectly pink, whimsical, refreshing inspiration shoot. . . . .
We started showing the dress off to our vendor friends---people who were just as inspired as we were. Somehow, this pretty little number nestled it's way into all of our hearts and created this rare form of magic. Our project seemed to take on a life of its own and evolved right before our eyes. We started referring to it as our Alice Through the Looking Glass shoot, Like Alice, it grew and evolved so much throughout the planning process. Before long, we had a cake that matched the print of the gown, Alice In Wonderland inspired treats, paper cranes, paper lanterns and collectible rabbits involved in the shoot. Everyone' s heart became intertwined in this day and it quickly became very personal for each and every one of us. . . . .
