So I already posted about where I got my wedding dresses and accessories here but I never really did a full post about my awesome bridals that I won in a charity auction!
Chelsea from Southern Fried Paper threw an event for a friend of hers with a small child who had medical needs-
She had vendors that she knew in the wedding business offer up items that we could bid on in a silent auction- I just happened to be the winning bidder for a lovely package by
photographers Ben Q Photography
Styling and Design by Birds of a Feather
Hair and Makeup by Kendra Gregory
Wedding Cake by Sugar Bee Sweets
Floral Design by Bows and Arrows
So I have to say that these vendors were AWESOME to work with and did such a good job and I felt kind of like a model which was super fun!
This was my J. Mendel dress that I bought on Ebay for $200 and had altered (moving the piece from the front to off the shoulder)
They did such an incredible job styling! Antique furniture, birdcage, crab apples (already provided by the trees!) and beautiful floating book art~
Loved the bouquet- it had so many soft and amazing smelling flowers/herbs in it!
The anemones were so pretty
The cake was cool too! Loved the birch look around the bottom and the feathers
The location was 3825 S. Bowen -I was the first photo shoot at this location and it was perfect!
I had told the stylists that I was looking for kind of a Hunger games/medieval/victorian look
so how they actually came up with this awesome look is beyond me since my directions were totally weird/crazy!
This dress was so comfortable it was practically like wearing pajamas
My veil came for free with my Atelier Aimee dress and I definitely loved wearing it- It’s so fun being a bride! Now I just get to relive the moment through blog posts
Cute porch swing- I want one of these some day!
Haha one of my hunger game poses
These shoes were pretty tall and pretty uncomfortable- I would say one tip for your wedding day…wear comfortable shoes at the ceremony
