Styled Photo Shoot At Monte Bello Estate/Citrus Hued Garden Rose Inspiration

Sunny and Bright. Sophisticated and Classic. Just a few words that describe this lovely styled shoot! I teamed up again with some of my favorite and super talented wedding peeps for this creative collaboration that took place at the beautiful Monte Bello Estate in Lemont. Ashley from Paper Love Club designed a hand painted heirloom crest that was the inspiration behind all of the gorgeousness that ensued. She also created personalized hand painted napkins and stationery featuring a watercolor rendering of the estate! An unbelievable cake from Elysia Root Cakes and colorful mismatched vintage stemware expertly handpicked by Jen at Elm Street Social, she and Jess from One July Photography dreamed up the concept for the shoot. I chose to use classic garden roses in citrus shades accented with ranunculus and Icelandic poppies for a touch of whimsy. I also created some custom designed lemon topiary trees to add some formality and height to the table design. Vintage milk glasses were filled with flower arrangements and set at each place setting, which was the perfect touch! Take a moment to look at all of the dreamy photographs!
