Here are some images from a recent photo shoot put together by the darling Carrie of White Ginger Events. I've had this invitation idea for awhile & thought it'd work perfectly with all the details Carrie had planned. Photography By McKenzie & Jessie Alexis Photography were there to capture everything. Below you'll also find a list of the rest of the participating vendors.

In the Details: Square Pocket in Matte Finish (deep purple), Main invite card on Pearl Shimmer Stock with double layer backing cards, Gold Satin Ribbon Wrap & Customized Polka Dots & Daisies Pearl Center Flower in Blush Pink.

Feature Friday-- Woodland Floral Details

Today, we're taking a closer look at some of the floral details from the Woodland Shoot. As you probably know by now, Amanda of Branches Event Floral, is the mastermind behind these gorgeous & out-of-the-box florals. She's also responsible for the lovely bridal headpiece, mantle decor & live snails! That's one of the things I love about working with Amanda-- she'll go to great lengths to bring the WOW factor to every event & photo shoot. The unique birch pole centerpiece was simply stunning and the charming bouquet was equally incredible. I've been lucky enough to partner with Amanda on quite a few collaborative photo shoots & she never ceases to amaze me with what she creates. If you're in the market for event floral, give Amanda a call or check out the Branches website & blog-- you'll be glad you did!

Feature Friday-- Woodland Invite Details

As promised we're bringing you some up-close details from our most recent photo shoot. Today we're focusing on the invitation. Created with a very whimsical approach, this invite combines freshly designed toadstool & snail graphics with one of our adorable new woodgrain pocket options. The woodgrain pockets come in both this color (which has an ink rub added) & a deeper brown as well. There are so many great ways to incorporate the woodgrain pocket-- they'd look fabulous with all sorts of invite designs & styles. The actual invite & insert cards were printed with a burlap pattern background to add a bit more rustic flair. The finished product was then wrapped and tied with a customized birch tag (another great new product we offer). Whimsical, rustic & all sorts of fun, wouldn't you say?!

We are looking forward to having this shoot featured nationally in the coming weeks-- hooray!

These incredible images were captured by two insanely talented ladies-- Camilla of Camilla Photography and Brienne of Azure B Photography. Also, make sure you check out all the fabulous local vendors who helped make this shoot a reality! We highly recommend all vendors on this list, so if you're planning a wedding these companies are ones you'll definitely want to look into. Without further adieu, we bring you Woodland Wonder...
