If you want your baby shower to feel like a page out of a fairytale, this “Fantasy Garden” themed styled shoot is for you. Think chic tea party meets garden soiree. We love the vibrant bright pink, purple, and orange flower arrangements, perfectly complemented by colorful vintage teacups! And the dessert table, filled with pastries and decorated cookies that look almost too good to eat, is a showstopper.
Read more below about the inspiration behind the shoot below, and see all of the amazing details captured by LaJoy Photography.
After being married for 2 years, Simone and Dustin were absolutely excited to find out that they were expecting their first child. However, shortly after finding out the news, the pandemic of COVID-19 occured, causing them to realize that the possibility of celebrating their upcoming bundle of joy with others with a baby shower was likely not going to happen.
In an effort to have some sort of a celebratory moment, I, along with some amazing vendors, created a gorgeous style shoot to allow Mr. and Mrs. Elliott to have a private celebration while also getting some amazing maternity pictures.LaJoy Photography
The shoot, designed and lead by Russell Wendell, had the theme of “Fantasy Garden”, as Simone and Dustin prepare to bloom their perfect flower. Intertwined with the beautiful florals by Christopher Marcs Design were hints of tasty fruit and vegetables. The exquisite china by Vintage English Teacup made the table sparkle with its tones. With the addition of a little fog and bubbles, the atmosphere became a dreamy oasis for Dustin and Simone to enjoy. Dustin and Simone, styled to perfection by Nadia Durham, swayed to the music and enjoyed the delicious treats by A Pinch Bakery.
Simone continued to have fun as she made a quick wardrobe change and entered what we called the Garden Room. Adorned with an exquisite garland of vibrant florals, Simone glowed with a luscious ponytail styled by B Combs Hair and flawless makeup by Makeup By Kimaris.
