We have a treat for you today!  In celebration of this weekends Kentucky Derby and of coarse our beautiful new Spring/Summer Issue ~ The Homespun Charm Edition, we are gushing over (again) this beautiful inspiration shoot designed by Jessica Parks Rourke of Parkside Wedding Studio + Lady Letterpress. With absolutely stunning florals by Sarah Shell of Fern Floral & Event Design in the most perfect color palette for Spring and Summer weddings this year. Jordan Thompson of Landon Jacob was the amazingly talented photographer behind the camera, capturing each styled shot in all its perfection.

I cannot thank these ladies enough for their splendid talents and dedication, along with the entire roster of vendors who contributed to this beautiful shoot just for us – thank you!  I am also thrilled and honored that the amazing Wedding Chicks and Grey Likes Weddings have both admired our Signature Shoot enough to feature it on their beautiful blogs.
