STYLED SHOOT: Greenhouse, Bamboo Farms + Botany

Here are Ivory and Beau, we love everything nature. Flowers, trees, birds and bees, we love it all! So we knew we wanted to do a botany inspired shoot. Before we even started planning we knew we wanted the amazing Izzy Hudgins to photograph it. Her photography is gorgeous, crisp, and just flat out perfect. So once we got Izzy on board, we started planning! We had always wanted to do a shoot at a greenhouse, and the Coastal Botanical Gardens in Savannah were ideal! Not only did they have a greenhouse, but they had amazing gardens, and even a bamboo farm! To tie in the botany and science theme we created a huge chalkboard ceremony backdrop, filled with math equations (which we also did on the dinner table) For the escort cards, we wanted to do a DIY project (tutorial here!) and made a pallet board display filled with plants. We already had this crazy idea for a hanging test tube chandelier for a bride's wedding, so this was the perfect opportunity to test it out! It was made by Whitney at The Grace Graffiti, who was amazing in helping us put our crazy idea to life! Colonial House of Flowers did the flowers, floral crown and the STUNNING chandelier. When we saw the chandelier, we thought there would just be a few flowers, but noooo, they completely blew us away with what they made!! I mean it was insane how amazing it was.  When looking for a model, Izzy suggested Leslie Miller of Leslie Miller Designs (who beaded the tie and necklace) and she was perfect! (Plus, Adrienna has been following her beadwork on social media for a while, so meeting her in person was awesome!) Her blue hair was fabulous, and hair and makeup by Marie Bramlett made it even more perfect. (I mean ombre blue hair?! Yes please!)
