A Fairytale Wedding : A Sleeping Beauty Princess Inspired Photo Shoot from Sassy Mouth Photography

Would you agree that starting your week off in a fairytale sounds like a fun idea? Well, this week, that's just what we will be doing. Marisa of Sassy Mouth Photography is organizing the most amazing photo shoots that she is calling "The Sassy Princess Bride Wedding Series". You may remember Marisa's Cinderella Wedding shoot I featured not too long ago. Today's Sleeping Beauty shoot took place at Gillette Castle in Haddam, CT. What a perfect location ... I remember going to this castle and taking a tour during one of our vacations to Mystic, CT. The color palette consisted of pale pinks, grey, neutrals and black. And, believe it or not, the model just happened to be named Aurora herself, just like Sleeping Beauty. Here's the magical shoot . . .

A Fairytale Wedding : A Cinderella Inspired Photo Shoot from Sassy Mouth Photography

What a treat I have for you today. As soon as saw this photo shoot from Marisa of Sassy Mouth Photography in Connecticut I knew it was a must feature. I'm in love with not only the idea of a fairytale wedding {after all, what girl isn't right?}, but when you mix in lots of bling and gorgeous detailing - it's definitely a winner for me. Today's Cinderella story starts after the happy ending. Wait until you see the sign on the dessert table - I LOVE IT!!!! Dessert is only served starting at a particular time - can you take a guess? It reads . . .

A dream is a wish your heart makes
The candy buffet opens at midnight
Thank you so much for celebrating with us

Giving Thanks with a Thanksgiving Tablescape Inspired Shoot

Today I have the perfect photo shoot for November to share with you. The initial concept was created by Marisa of Sassy Mouth Photography and she also photographed the amazing finished design. Joining Marisa to create the final "giving thanks" tablescape and mantle display was Jennifer Lynn Events with gorgeously stunning florals by HGK Designs and paper goods designed by Potter & Butler. Just wait until you see the cake which was baked by A Little Imagination Cakes. I think I could easily skip the pumpkin pie if this was being served for dessert :) How about you?

Photo Shoot : a vintage glam bridal shower

In case you missed it over the weekend, the April Wedding Vendor Challenge is underway and all week long I have brand new inspirational photo shoots to share with you. This month the vendor teams worked with the color palette of bubblegum pink, mint green and robin's egg blue. For April, I asked vendors to create a bridal shower tablescape with a dessert display and like the previous challenges, there will be at least one DIY provided.

Today's beautiful vintage glam bridal shower features the talents of Sandra Downie Event Designs, Sassy Mouth Photography and Sweet SugarBelle. The lovely centerpiece features tulips, hyacinths and snapdragons. I love the pastel flower touches throughout and the Bride-to-be sign below is so cute to mark where the guest of honor will be sitting. {for me, the ruffles on the bottom of the sign resemble a garter, I love that little touch}

LOVING the engagement diamond napkin ring.

Photo Shoot : Sass the Date for a Merry Little Christmas Wedding

In keeping with today's earlier photo shoot - the holidays are staying alive on my blog for one more day :) Right now I have a beautiful Merry Little Christmas Wedding photo shoot that Marisa of Sassy Mouth Photography in CT put together. Marisa even designed the invitation {don't you love it?}

Marisa used some of her own Christmas items, some new things, and her sister's adorable little girls. Marisa's brother's girlfriend modeled as a bride in her own mom's wedding dress from 30 years ago. I'm in love with this dress - it's the most perfect winter wedding dress and even more perfect for a holiday one.

The gorgeous florals were provided by HGK DESIGNS and the hair and makeup was from Kayle from Salon Alexander in New Britain.

This photo shoot is brimming with inspiration for the holidays - and even some of the ideas can be implemented for Valentine's Day. Thank you so much Marisa for sharing this stunning shoot with my readers today. To see more from Marisa - please visit the Sassy Mouth Photography Blog.
