Featured: Apple Orchard Wedding Inspiration on 100 Layer Cake

A few months ago I went to visit my friend Ashley in Michigan. While there, we thought it'd be fun to style a wedding inspiration shoot together! Since we live across the country from one another but both work in the same industry, doing different things, we'd always wanted to put our talents together and create something really magical. I'm bias, but I think we did it, thanks to our entire team of AMAZING vendors. From gorgeous hair and makeup, the most stunning flowers I've ever laid eyes on, the yummiest and most beautiful cake and treats, and lots of other fun details, we had the best group of creative minds.

You can see the whole feature on 100 Layer Cake! We're still pinching ourselves from when the feature went up yesterday. God is good.

Ashley and I decided on doing a wedding sunrise ceremony with brunch foods. Yum! {And the caterer made the donut holes gluten free for me!!!! Nicest thing ever.} Watch the video below for a few more details from the photo shoot and some commentary from yours truly. 

Also, you may have seen the pretty flowers a special someone sent me for my birthday on instagram a few weeks ago.  God loves to surprise me, so naturally we met at this very photo shoot. {He's the cute one standing at the table in the picture below.} That's all I'm saying about that, but really...this was a very, very special day!
