Boho Bridal Tea Inspiration


Last Fall I had sooo much fun working with some of my fellow creative friends to brainstorm and shoot this styled session. I had the initial idea, and helped give direction for where I wanted to go stylistically, but was SO grateful to have Nicole of Stag & Lily come on board to make the vision a reality. We headed out to the gorgeous grounds of Seven Springs which was definitely the perfect setting for our story.

We wanted to bring real-life inspiration for a bride who might be celebrating in the late Fall or Winter as she enjoys a luncheon or tea with her friends. Whether it’s for the bridal shower, or time with her best friends the week of the wedding, the goal was to show that something beautiful, especially in the “off” season, doesn’t have to be expensive or unattainable. With vintage family photos to add meaning to the celebration, teacups passed down from grandmas and great grandmas, and pies that might have been baked by Mom or Grandma herself. In addition to some gorgeous florals put together by The Green Flamingo, we wanted to add a touch of the foraged concept to show that with a little effort you can add lots of natural beauty to enhance your events, too. So Nicole and her friend created the magnolia wreath from leaves at Seven Springs as well as the green elements hanging with the photos and other touches on the table.

Needless to say, it was a really fun, beautiful shoot that is rooted in the type of event that is dear to my heart. One with beauty, familial sentiment, and some vintage-boho touches. We’re so excited to have it featured on a blog we love later this year, but am sooo thrilled to be showing off some of my favorites, today!

How amazing is the hair & make-up for these stunning girls?? Mandie totally killed it with each of their looks and I love how they come together so well but are each unique.
