Wizard of Oz!

Wizard of Oz!

Wizard of Oz Wedding Inspiration Shoot! |


Since I was a little girl, the Wizard of Oz has been my favorite movie... Yes, I may have been scared of the witch... and a little terrified of the flying monkeys... but it was all worth it in the end to see Dorothy click her heels and say "There's No Place Like Home"!

I think ever since I started my wedding photography business, I've always dreamed of shooting a Wizard of Oz themed wedding.  To date, sadly, I dont know of anyone who has done a wedding with such an awesome theme, so I started talking to some of my favorite ladies in the industry, and we decided, lets do it ourselves!  I cant even express how incredibly fabulous it was to have my dreams come true right in front of my eyes!  I had such a fabulous time not just putting together this shoot, but working side by side with some of the best women in the industry!  We were so thankful that Mr. Pratt offered his property - Pratt Gardens - as our backdrop!  It was absolutely gorgeous, and we could not thank him enough for his hospitality!  It was truly a wonderful day!

Here is a list of all of the a-maz-ing vendors involved:

Photography: Tami Melissa Photography
Flowers/Design: A Garden Party
Hair/Makeup: Your Day Your Way Traveling Hair and Makeup Artistry

Another dream of mine was to be featured on one of my favorite wedding blogs - Inspired by This.  So, after completing our shoot, I submitted the photos, and they accepted it!!!  Yesterday, I had the absolute privilege of being featured on their website!!  :)  Love it!!

The cakes were created and designed by the always fabulous Jill of The Sweet Life Bakery!  I am so sad to say, that the bakery is no longer, but wishing Jill the absolute BEST and so much love and luck at being a stay at home mommy!!  Congratulations love! :)
