Light + Airy Bridal Shoot At Paper Factory Hotel

There's nothing I enjoy more than working with other creatives. I had the privilege to photograph this beautiful bridal shoot styled by the incredibly sweet and talented Mandy Forlenza. Mandy and I connected on Instagram just a few months ago when we both discovered that we lived super close to one another. What?! I know. How awesome is Instagram for that!? I mean, seriously... I have met some of the most wonderful people and even clients via Instagram. It's been great! Anyways, Mandy reached out to work together on this shoot back in August, and it just turned out to be amazing. I've seen her styling work before (and fell in love!) so I knew that whatever it was that she was putting together, it would be magical and a dream to capture. Mandy has such a simple, clean, and beautiful eye for styling. She also is owner of a darling little company called Little Vintage Rentals. LVR consists of the most unique and charming pieces your eyes ever did see. I myself actually rented a few stunning brass antique candle sticks and antique vases for my wedding this past September. Renting is the way to go! Mandy used a ton of props from Little Vintage Rentals for this shoot which you can visually see below. The whole team that made this shoot possible was just amazing to work with. This light + airy bridal shoot will forever be a favorite of mine - not just because of the work produced but also because of the wonderful team I had the opportunity to do this with. Check out some of the vendor links below who contributed to this dreamy shoot! They won't disappoint!
