The inspiration for this shoot presented itself over a year ago when Jackie, of Sincerely, Jackie, and I were prop shopping for a shoot she was doing at the time. We happened upon a shelf of vintage ice cream sundae glasses in an array of pastel colors, and we both immediately thought, we HAVE to do an ice cream theme styled shoot with sweetly fun, feminine details! Naturally, busy season arrived and the shoot idea was put on the back burner.
But this winter, when the wedding world got quiet and creativity started to flow again, the ice cream shoot seemed to make perfect sense. Especially because the main pastel colors we were envisioning for the palette were the new Pantone colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Then, the cutest tagline popped into my head on a walk one day: "She Got Scooped Up!". And that's how this ice cream theme bridal shower shoot was born! What bride-to-be wouldn't love to celebrate her upcoming wedding with sprinkles and ice cream?!
For something over a year in the making, I am over the moon with how this inspiration was brought to life. Erin Braun Design took charge on the florals and styling, and hand painted a beautiful water color back drop that we used for the ice cream sundae bar. Sincerely, Jackie created the cutest waffle cone patterned place cards, a charming pink watercolor invitation and a "She Got Scooped Up!" print. FCI Catering and Events not only provided the home for the shoot, but also whipped up the signature Berry Cloud cocktail, which was perfectly topped with a tuft of cotton candy that melted when topped off with champagne. However, none of it would have been possible without Brklyn View Photography on hand to capture the light, bright and girlie scenes we created!
