Emerald and Magic

March 20, 2013

Yesterday the shoot that we photographed in collaboration with the lovely ladies of Viva L’Event NC, featuring inspiration drawn from the movie, the Wizard of Oz, was featured on the Every Last Detail blog .. and today we’re going to share some of our favorites with y’all. This inspiration includes two different takes on bridal looks – one based on the sweet and innocent Dorothy and the other from the elegant and glam Glinda. So, take a trip with us down this yellow brick road to the bright and beautiful, wonderful world of Oz …

At Snipes Farm Retreat, we had our very own Kansas, and the barn and silo made the perfect backdrop for this inspiration.

This amazing stationary was designed by Opus 1. We loved all of the little details they put into it, including the RSVP being sent to ‘Auntie Em’. :)

We absolutely loved the bouquet designed by Viva L’Event NC as Dorothy’s bouquet .. such a brilliant punch of color, and the tall green bamboo shooting above it to represent the emerald city was a unique touch. Glinda’s all-white, classic bouquet with it’s chevron adorned handle was gorgeous as well.
