Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Modern garden styled shoot

July 31, 2012
spiceman's garden shoot The Bell Jar is a collective of some of Texas’ most creative talent (Apryl Ann Photography, Bows + Arrows, Southern Fried Paper, and After Yes). When they get together pretty things happen, and when they walked across the street from their antique studio space in Dallas to discover a local garden, sparks flew. It’s the perfect setting for an intimate, romantic garden wedding. Once you’ve seen how they’ve styled it, you’ll fall in love too, and want to recreate that amazing floral wreath chandelier and alter installation. So pretty!

Part boho and part chic with her flowing prairie skirt, the “bride” looks adorable in a leopard print corsette and floral head wreath. Ah, but that organic bouquet steals the spotlight using herbs from the garden and farm fresh blooms.

Aren’t these seed packet escort cards by Southern Fried Paper great?
