Check out this amazing Bridesmaid Garden Tea Party shoot we did with Glammed and Groomed and Taken by Sarah Photography Makes us feel MUCH better about the cold weather! We loved that Danyell (from Glammed and Groomed) decided to use our formal garden as the backdrop of this lovely shoot.

Putting a sweetheart table under our pergola was a great idea and we can totally imagine a bride and groom sitting there overlooking all their closest friends and family dancing the night away on the stars.

Models McKensie, Kate, and Sandy. Dresses from Fabulous Frocks Charlotte.
