Back in April of 2017, I had the opportunity to collaborate with a talented group of creatives and we put together a styled shoot full of Spring wedding inspiration. And with our beautiful wedding “story”, we have a beautiful venue! There is so much to love about Bella Sera Gardens. Beauty, romance, rustic architectural details, and not to mention that it’s brand spanking new! There are beautiful gardens/grounds, handsome architecture, a formal courtyard, fountains, large wooden swings, fire, an entrance tower with antique gates, and Italian crystal chandeliers! Spring wedding inspiration is everywhere! If you’re looking for a unique wedding venue, I highly recommend Bella Sera Gardens (which is located in Loxley, Alabama). It’s also the perfect place for a styled shoot…!
On almost every styled shoot I participate in, I aim to design a full stationery collection. My collections have 8 pieces including save the date, wedding invitation, program, menu, place card, escort card, table number, and thank you note card. For this shoot, I designed the Ella Collection which features watercolor, florals, a monogram crest, and silk ribbon. Custom envelope liners are a personal favorite. It is a detail I love designing and one that I highly recommend if you want that extra personal touch for your invitation suite.
Megan with Southern Grace Photography captured the story, producing a multitude of amazing photos. As you can see, she is all about the details! I especially love how she styled and captured the stationery! Below are just a few of my favorite photos from the shoot. I hope they give you inspiration and ideas for your upcoming wedding!
