A Royal Garden Affair Styled Shoot

We’re bringing you another magical styled shoot from Samantha Bonpensiero Photography today. She stunned us again with her vision of a glamorous wedding without all the bling. In this styled shoot, it is ALL about the delicate details… the petite desserts, the white-lace fingerless gloves, the chandeliers, textured flowers, and the unexpected pampas grass (dyed lavender)… will make any girl feel like a princess getting married in her private English garden.


The breathtaking centerpiece and matching bouquet are filled with all sorts of  soft pastel colors and textures. Notice the centerpiece is hung by small chandeliers? I can totally just picture how it lights up the table as the day gets darker. Multi-colored hydrangea at the base of the vase adds more color and texture to this English garden on the table.

















From the photographer:

“At one point or another every girl wants to be a princess. For some, that point is their wedding day and this styled shoot is a little glimpse into a tasteful (rhinestone-less) way to feel like royalty on your big day. Delicate details like dripping chandeliers, cut crystal, simple china, colored depression glass, and satin & sheer ribbons brought out the sophistication for this scene. Playful desserts, highly textural pastel flowers, and an incredibly lovely rose garden lighten the seriousness of being a princess. Our favorite flowers of the day were a toss up between the giant pampas grass (dyed lavender), graceful ballerina-like tulips, and luscious multicolored hydrangeas. Our royal garden affair menu was a mix of petite treats and elegantly decorated (albeit faux) cakes. Above All Catering also helped set us up with Signature Party Rentals who provided us with the beautiful table linens as well as a giant round table that fit perfectly into the center of the rose garden. Our model Taylor was a perfectly regal bride, with her sassy attitude, hair piled high with jewels and curls. She was dripping with jewels and two decadent dresses – one in pale pink complete with tulle and floral details and one in a rich and heavy silky satin with a gorgeous lace up back and tiny jewels.”
