Friday Feature - Vintage Shoot

We are all about fabulous styled shoots and this vintage themed one is no exception to our adoration. This shoot was inspired by photographer, Cheyenne Kidd’s love for vintage and antiques. 

Cheyenne grabbed some passionate vendors and together they created the beauty that is this vintage shoot. The Greenhouse Picker Sisters spearheaded the styling and put their creative hands to work. The end result was stunning. 

From typewriters to wooden barrels, the rustic elements really complimented the desired feel. The gold plated dishware only added to the vintage vibe and the centerpieces from Pine State Flowers made the table pop with just the right amount of color. And let’s not forget about the beautifully crafted cake that oozed elegant simplicity.

We are always so excited to be involved with styled shoots and we’re flattered that Cheyenne chose Mims as the location for her vintage oasis. 

Kudos to our rockstar vendors:

Friday Feature - Erika's Bridal Portraits

We loved hosting the beautiful Erika for her bridal portraits. She picked some of our favorite spaces inside the house and out on the grounds to capture the beauty of her gown. 

The keyhole in the back of her dress flowed elegantly with pattern of the front door and the color of her roses popped beautifully against her gown. 

Along with Kate from MKM Photography, Erika was able to float through the house and choose the perfect locations for her bridal portrait session.
