If you follow me on IG @lovecandyb , you may have seen that we had a Gatsby inspired shoot. When I saw that Kayla of Kayla Simpson Photography wanted to do a collaboration and the theme was Gatsby Wedding, I was all over it! I love how glamorous the women were and how dapper the men are in this era. So I reached out to my fellow wedding vendors to see if they wanted to help with this styled shoot and they were all on board with me. In this blog you will find three slideshow galleries, so don't miss looking through them by double clicking each of them.
It was an amazing time working with the models, getting wardrobe together and really working side by side with Wedding professionals I know and respect.
From a first look with the bride and groom to the reception party, Southern Charm Plantation in Mt. Vernon Missouri was the perfect setting for this wedding.
While we enjoyed the breathtaking setting outdoors we felt the shoot would not be complete without the party inside. Amie with A Day to Remember - Events by Amie did an amazing job setting the outside, but even more so the head table and guests tables inside. She had such attention to detail, making sure the golds were perfect, a touch of feathers for the centerpieces, the napkins with a little dazzle to them and the plate settings. She carefully placed the perfect menus and programs for this shoot that were provided by Lori with Celebrated Occasions in Springfield, MO on the tables. The reception venue wouldn't be complete without the right uplighting which was made possible by the one and only MERP Entertainment out of Branson, MO, along with their photo booth and music, we couldn't have had a better time. The day was complete with delicious food (yes, we got to eat too!) from Lillee's Catering and the most gorgeous cake from Sweets and Smiles Bakery.
I hope you enjoy looking through these galleries as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
After you go through those, head over to the Photobooth Gallery by MERP Entertainment for all the fun candid stuff!
Special thanks to all the models that participated in this event!
