From the designer, Cydney Johnson of Stiletto Events:
Throughout the entire shoot, you see pieces dedicated to the Irish Wedding traditions…such as the hand bells, Irish prayers and horse shoes. Each detail was carefully crafted to give a simplistic Irish and Saint Patrick’s Day feel…but not go overboard as we knew could easily be done. We didn’t want the Irish style to scream green, and with the wedding color of the year being Emerald, we decided to play on the pops of Emerald rather than making it a main color.
We also pulled in many DIY and money saver aspects. For instance, we paid a total of $3 for the headpiece by purchasing a piece of tulle from a local fabric store and a fake flower to give it that Boho flare. It was important that each detail of the style shoot was easily obtainable for any budget.
After all was said and done, the entire shoot was fantastic! Each vendor who was involved played a vital role in making the look and feel exactly as we had hoped. We lucked out on having an absolutely gorgeous and perfect day weather wise…which is always questionable during the winter in Colorado.
