A few months ago I got an email from Manda at Mae & Co asking me to collaborate on a styled wedding photoshoot by creating some pretty cakes. Little did I know how insanely good she is at what she does, and I was beyond blown away seeing her creative vision come to life. The theme was Rustic Italian Dream, and the color palette she sent over was dreamy as could be. When I walked in to the venue and saw everything coming together, from intricate floral work and tablescapes to the most beautiful wedding dresses I have ever seen, I was sold on the fact that Manda is a styling wizard. If you’re planning a wedding or elopement and want it to be the most stunning day of your life, you need to call her up. She will take care of everything.
The photoshoot was hosted by StyledYou, which is a project by Mae & Co, and there were several amazing photographers there capturing all the magic. I wanted to share some of their photos and highlight all of the incredible people involved. Hands down, the best part was seeing everyone bring their own unique skill set to this shoot and work together to make something incredible! It just goes to show the power of collaborating with other talented people and letting the magic unfold.
The vendors who collaborated on this shoot come highly recommended from me, and they’re all amazingly talented. Definitely consider them for your future events:

Is this not the dreamiest wedding you’ve ever seen? Made me want to get married to my honey all over again! I’m blown away at how talented each of these photographers are and so humbled to be a tiny part of bringing this creative vision to life. Everyone involved brought such talent to this photoshoot and it was a thing of wonder. I’m into it. Can’t wait to experience something like this again!
