Spring is such a welcomed sight after months of bitter cold. Enjoying the sunshine, warming temperatures and budding blooms gets our spirits up and smiles shining! So when we teamed up with Meagan Lucy Photographers, A Daydream Wedding and Grand Reserve Inn to create a Spring-inspired shoot to show off some modern greenery trends, we immediately shook off the scarves and put on the strappy heels! All the contributing talent from the creative team and our very own gorgeous SPARKLE bride Danielle made this shoot unforgettable. Grand Reserve Inn is a new venue located in Plymouth, CA – the heart of Shenandoah Valley Wine country. With it’s Mediterranean feel and textured elements, Stephanie Webber, Owner and Lead Wedding Planner for A Daydream Wedding, created a modern fusion of natural leafy foliage balanced with sleek geometric shapes and backdrops. Adding pops of purple in various shades also gave the event design a modern flair. Below are highlight photo and video by Meagan Lucy Photographers. For more photos, check out our Pinterest page. Enjoy!
Behind the Scenes
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot preparation. So much detail and time goes into planning a styled shoot. We always like to show a bit of what goes on before the cameras roll. Stephanie Webber of A Daydream Wedding, ensures all the details, layout and rentals from El Dorado Party Rentals are just right. (Bottom L) Chef Paul of Paul Michael Signature Catering works with his culinary team to add final touches to the special menu he created for this shoot. (Bottom M) Larcom’s Lighting added ambiance to the Grand Reseerve Inn by stringing heritage lights and adding uplighting against the textured stone walls. (Bottom R) Lea Beuhler of BGorgeous adds a polished look to SPARKLE Model (and Bride!) Danielle.
SPARKLE Gowns and Looks
SPARKLE bride Danielle’s smile lit up the venue and her charm showed throughout the final photos. Lea Buehler of BGorgeous make-up and hair, created a soft enhanced natural look for Danielle, accentuating her long lush lashes and dewy skin. For Danielle, our SPARKLE Style Team selected a couple of dress styles which includes our Ejeria strapless lace gown paired with a tulle skirt from our I DO! Separates Collection. She can wear curvy contouring Ejeria on it’s own or with the tulle skirt giving it a ballgown-effect while still showing off her curves. Our other SPARKLE gown featured is Georgina, a billowy, super-soft taffeta skirt with a dainty lace illusion blouse and three-quarter lace sleeves.
Final Details and Decor
Adding the 2018 color of the year, Stephanie used shades of purple too accentuate the modern greenery and textured surfaces. Frank Vilt of Frank Vilt’s Cakes created a marbled tiered cake topped off with a geometric glass terrarium containing pretty purple florals and scrumptious cupcakes. The detailed table settings are surrounded by florals and greenery by Rosea Flower Boutique. We love how the lush garland drapes over the edge of the tables giving the layout a touch of whimsy.
