A Dreamy BoHo-Chic Wedding: Styled Shoot
- Daisy Froio
A few months ago, I had a vision. A vision to create my first styled shoot! I wanted to do something different. A style I have never done before, and right then and there I started brainstorming and all I could envision was a bohemian themed wedding. Then I thought more on the lines of a boho-chic, which means elegant or stylish. It was copied from the Frenchmen in the 19th century. “BoHo Chic” is used to describe a certain style that includes ethnic-inspired accessories, natural-looking hair and make-up, vintage, and flowy clothing. I wanted it to have a romantic look, but also natural. I thought to myself how perfect this theme was! I could see it all in my head and wanted it to come alive. I started to create an inspiration board of all the idea’s I wanted and that is when it all started.
After I chose a date for the shoot, I started to reach out to the vendors that I loved. I spoke with my dear friend Jena who is the owner of Flowers by Jena Paige and told her all about my vision. After describing to her exactly what I wanted she 100% wanted to be a part of it! I thanked her and her mother Teresa, who I couldn’t have done this styled shoot without because not only did they help with the flowers, but they helped with the venue location. They are renovating a new venue right in Exton, PA called Cross Gables Estate, and let’s just say it was PERFECT for my shoot! They both made my vision come alive and they are so sweet, and very talented. If you are looking for a florist or a venue for any upcoming event, PLEASE reach out to them!
Then I reached out to Jensen Photography, who I cannot rave enough about! Their work is amazing! I had a pleasure working with Cait the day of the shoot and can’t thank her enough for the beautiful pictures she took. You made the day so fun with your sweet personality.
Simply Rosie Designs made a gorgeous custom wedding invitation suite, along with bride and groom place cards. Rosie was amazing to work with. I showed her my inspiration board, and she took it into her own hands to create something perfect for this shoot.
Going with the natural feel I wanted a calligrapher to be involved. I spoke with my friend Kelsey, who is the heart and soul behind Creamery Hill. I have worked with her in the past and I love everything that she does! She made a custom acrylic welcome sign for the shoot, and table numbers for the guest tables, which came out elegant and unique.
The bride and groom were obviously the front and center of this shoot, and let’s just say they rocked it! The bride was my sweet cousin Abbie, who fit the boho-chic style perfectly in her flowy white, lace dress. With the fedora hat covered in flowers that matched her bouquet. We can’t forget that black leather jacket she pulled off! The final touch was made from the makeup artist, Nikki. She worked magic on Abbie and could tell how much passion she had in her work.
The groom was a friend of mine, Patrick who I couldn’t thank enough to jump in this spot for me because he wanted to support my business in every possible way! His attire was simpler. He
wore a navy-blue suit with a brown belt that matched his brown shoes. He then had on a burgundy tie that would match flowers in the bride’s bouquet. Together they looked amazing.
What’s a wedding without a cake? That’s where I reached out to Custom Cake Crafters, which is a small business that creates beautiful cakes! I wanted something simple, so I went with a naked cake with a touch of Jena’s beautiful flowers that she designed around it.
Lastly, I reached out to Caroline’s Rentals. I highly recommend Lindsay! Her selection was EXACTLY what I was looking for. She has everything you could think of for you next upcoming event or wedding! All the furniture, candle holders, dish-wear, rugs, etc. all came from Caroline’s Rental. Lindsay was a big help with putting my vision together. She was very attentive to what I had to say. She gave me ideas for my styled shoot that made all the difference! Because of her my styled shoot was everything I wanted and more!
Through all this planning we were also facing a pandemic. I was so scared the planning and preparation for this shoot was going to have to be postponed, but with all the help from the vendors and models we were able to get the job done! We took extra precautions and worked very careful around each other. Through it all I put my faith into God. The styled shoot was created, and my overall vision was a success. A huge thank you to all the vendors, who worked beside me and helped me create this dream. Love and appreciation go out to all of you! Along with the love and support I had from friends and family members!
Finally, after all that here are the pictures from the AMAZING day-
