A Dreamy Shoot in an Orchard with an $8 Target Dress

Today's lovely fashion inspired shoot is a bit different from what I normally share, but so much can be taken away from this dream shoot in an orchard. It's a great shoot to show you that sometimes less planning results in something totally unexpected. The photographer for this shoot, Ashley Cook Photography found this dress on clearance at Target for only $8. What a bargain and what a great dress for the bridesmaids. After finding the dress, Ashley called an "adorable red-head" that she knows who also happens to be the mom to 3 kiddos all under the age of 6 (I must find out her secret to looking so great) and said "we have got to do a shoot!". They drove around and happened to find the most gorgeous of orchards to shoot in.
 A Dreamy Fashion Shoot {on a budget} in an Orchard

The beautiful headband and crocheted vest were from Ashley's closet. She picked up the flowers from a local florist shop and put the bouquet together herself as she headed out the door. Ashley says she is normally a huge planner and needs to have every detail thought out. But, with this shoot, it literally came together a day or two before they decided to do it. Thus, proving less planning can result in something totally unexpected. So, for the brides planning their wedding - everything will fall into place so try not to worry about things you can't control. Your day will still be magically beautiful.
