Korie Lynn and I did this shoot last October. I was knee deep in weddings, but I had never worked with Korie before (who also happens to be the amazingly talented The Weekend Type) and I just couldn’t say no. We agreed to do something small scale so my brain didn’t boggle and this shoot was born. You can see our inspiration and a sneak peek here. This is the first shoot that I did that felt like I was finally moving in the right direction. It was a really good feeling. Let’s get into it shall we?
I styled the paper two different ways- but the gold box from West Elm has my heart. It was all kinds of perfect for shooting the paper. I love trying out a few different things though because you just never know what will turn out better or what blogs/magazines will want to see. Plus…I could play with paper and style it all day long, so it’s not exactly difficult :)
Hair and makeup was by Erica of Hey Lovely. I don’t talk about her enough, but I’ve used Erica for almost every shoot I’ve ever done, obviously there are exceptions, but seriously her work is just so beautiful and she doesn’t overdo it or do too much, just lets the natural beauty shine through.
I found this marbled ribbon that Natalie Stopka makes. It was so pretty in every way, I want to find a million more reasons to use it, it was GORGEOUS.
We shot everything in the old train station at Olde Dobbin Station. It was such an insanely pretty spot and just filled with the perfect filtered light. Even my crappy Iphone photos were starting to look magical in there which is a very rare occurrence indeed.
This centerpiece likely weighed around thirty pounds, our model looks chilled out, but I promise you she was struggling not to drop it. I had built it on a 12″ cake pedestal and was planning to transplant it into a vase which was a rental and why I didn’t originally build it in there in the first place, but low and behold it looked pretty great on the cake stand…it just meant that it was enormous in a good way I think.
I styled this cake a couple of different ways, but the simple clean lines of the pretty cake were my favorite and won out. This cake didn’t need a thing.

Happy Tuesday! What’s your favorite part? I think mine is that marbled ribbon!!
