Serene lake waters, fresh air, towering oak and palm trees, and a beautiful Spanish inspired venue. For me, being in that space is peace. Being in Bella Cosa Lakeside is peace. With the enthralling landscape of greens and a breathtaking view of Lake Pierce, I was inspired to curate and design an editorial that evokes peacefulness. Together with a team of creatives, we were able to piece together this editorial that was every bit amazing!
Our muse, Alexandria Chester was dazzling in our white whimsical dress from Lillie Mae Collection while holding a bouquet of beautiful blooms arranged by talented florist, Emily Rose Valentine. I love the deep maroons, popping out from a bed of creams. It is a whole new palette in itself and I’m here for it!
To the brides and creatives reading this, take note!! You might want to integrate some elements in this shoot into your own wedding or your own creation! We teamed up tith with some of the best vendors in Central Florida in the hopes of inspiring you!
Going back, let’s talk about details. Honestly, I didn’t want to dwell on this too much because I know I wouldn’t be able to contain my excitement but we’re already here so might as well allow me to gush because they are swoon-worthy!! First, this tabletop setting. Don’t even get me started!! I am in looove with how each piece is beautiful and intricate such as the florals by Emily Rose Valentine, tabletop pieces from Treasury Rentals, the hand written menus and calligraphy pieces by Calligraphy By Jennifer and these beautiful black/brown cross-back chairs from Any Event Linen & Chair Rental!! This setting on your wedding day? Your guests will feel so special!!
You thought we were done? Oh, you are so wrong! We haven’t even talked about the cake yet! This masterpiece right here, deserves your attention! In this editorial, we wanted to integrate an organic palette consisting of hues of blues and greys, with accents of deep reds and black. Dessiree of @sugar_dreams_by_dessy understood what we’re going for and she created once again, a breath taking cake! This cake is a tall beauty with striking florals that complimented our full color story! When I look at this cake, I am reminded of wildflowers clinging on a beautiful marbled wall. Dessiree did amazing!! If you looking for a cake artist, Dessiree is your girl!
Our videographers Z and Z Image (@zandzimage), and yours truly, Terrie Images had the time of our lives taking shots of our stunning muses Ava Elise, Emily Jo, Alexandria Chester, and our bride and groom, Susanna and Kieran! Our brides for this shoot happily sashayed across the property in their Bella Belle shoes and Lillie Mae Collection gowns while our groom, Kieran, was looking dapper in his suit from Generation Tux!
This editorial was THE dream! The vendors were amazing and as you know it, yes, the details were everything I dreamed of!! I especially love the color palettes brought in each imagery and it is so fulfilling to see the design we visualized be brought to life! Thank you to all the vendors who made this possible, Underground Market Outlet for assisting us with advertising and day of assistance, and to everyone who participated in this editorial! It was a dream to put our talents together and create such a dreamy palette!
