Ever wonder how those beautiful Pinterest-worthy images come to life? Often times, vendors collaborate on what the industry refers to as styled shoots. Starting from a mood board of colors and textures, a team of wedding and event vendors works together to show you what a little bit of creativity and teamwork can bring to enhance your big day.
Styled Shoots Across America was founded by Heather Benge of Heather Benge Events, and she is just a gem in the wedding industry. Her kind hearted personality shines through her designs, and her willingness to share her talents through the spirit of community over competition helped grow her plan of shooting a stylized wedding shoot in all 50 states to an entire wedding community. A recognized and professionally certified event planner, Heather has been featured in publications in every major wedding magazine and blog with her weddings across the United States.
Back in October, our Social Media Manager was able to go be a part of this incredible shoot, taking one of our floral preservation boxes and jewelry sets with her to be a part of the talented vendor list. Hosted at the stunning Green Door Gourmet venue, we were especially excited that the flowers used in the bouquets and installations by Intrigue Designs were all grown and cut from their own farm.
The bright, vibrant colors in the moodboard Heather shared had us excited to put together a piece to include. We created one of our Vintage Keepsake Boxes from a sampling of the blooms. One of the bouquets came back home to Ohio with us, and is currently in our freeze dryers, anxiously waiting to be created into new designs.
