Pomegranate Winter Wedding Inspiration - as seen in Bridal Guide Magazine

Today's post is a flashback to one of my favorite styled photo shoots I was a part of. This time of year, pomegranates are a big hit and their color couldn't be more perfect for weddings during the holiday season. This pomegranate styled shoot was featured in Bridal Guide Magazine as a 3 page spread in the Party Planner pages. For this shoot, I designed and hand-glittered all the paper goods including . . . invitation, dessert tags, place cards, and dessert toppers. All of the paper goods are still available for purchase in my Wedding Girl etsy shop. The stunning photography is by Kismis Ink Photography along with so many other amazingly talented wedding vendors who participated in creating this pomegranate inspired winter wedding. You can see the original post here with lots more inside scoop on the entire photo shoot and even more spectacular photos.
