Styled Shoot at the Olive Mill | Queen Creek, Arizona


Last week, I packed up my boys and we headed to Oklahoma to surprise my mom.  My dad and I were planning the trip for 6 weeks.  I think this is the first time I’ve ever kept a secret!  (From my mom anyway!)   It got harder and harder not to say anything!  I made a little video of our trip, which at the end resulted in a very happy grammie!  We had the best week with my parents and though I’d say it was pretty relaxing, my parents would tell you otherwise!  I initially left my camera at home and had zero access to work email (maybe that’s why it was so relaxing!).  So it was a grand surprise when I opened up Facebook to see that Cake and Lace had not only accepted my submission, but had published it as well!

This shoot was absolute perfection.  From the vendors to the photographers and all the details in between.  My absolute favorite part was the stunning ceremony arbor.  A joint effort between Moonchild Floral, Prim Rentals and my mother-in-law (she made the macrame curtain), it was the focal point of the entire shoot.

A close runner up would be the invitation.  It’s the first time I’ve ever designed something like this before.  I included mounted deep matte prints of the Olive Mill in with the invites that act as a little gift sneak peek of the celebration to come.  I could go on and on, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
