I am excited to share a few LOVELY photographs I took while attending Elizabeth Messina‘s A Lovely Workshop at the Sea Island Resort in Georgia last month. Her workshop was truly an inspiration and I was so honored to learn from Elizabeth and her amazing friends Leah MacDonald, an incredible encaustic master and book maker and Martha Stewart Weddings photo editor Shira Savada.

I will be sharing some of my favorite photographs over the next few months from the styled shoots Elizabeth and her talented team dreamed up and put together. Please enjoy all the beauty and make sure to check out the websites from the talented people that contributed…

It took MANY creative individuals to produce the gorgeous styled shoots and all the prettiness for us to capture. The fashionable Ginny Branch was the talent behind the design, Blue Eyed Yonder styled the out the sets, and florist Amy Osaba put the finishing touches of flowers on from Fifty Flowers and Cut Flower. The models were draped in beautiful gowns from Chelsea Rose BridalIvy & AsterClaire Pettibone and The Sentimentalist. Gorgeous headpieces from my personal favorite Twigs & Honey and jewelry from Construct Jewelry completed their looks while hair and makeup artists Claudia Mejerle and Erin Skipley dolled them up to perfection.

We were also showered by so much magic and beauty the entire time with a swag bag from Wedding Chicks filled with gifts and goodies from Cacao-CalineCupcake VineyardsShop RuchePlum Pretty Sugar, You Smell, Monkeys Always LookTIBIArtifact UprisingVelvet RaptorWiley ValentineIce Milk Aprons, Southern Sprout and MANY MANY more!

It was truly a magical and inspiring three days…
How LOVELY indeed!
