White Sparrow Styled Shoot

Styled Shoot

July 24, 2017

Isn’t this venue the most breath-taking venue you’ve ever seen?! Designed by a photographer, the White Sparrow Barn is one of the most drool worth venues for photographers and pretty much all wedding vendors. I had some work in Texas and was determined to make it to not only see but photograph in this venue and I’m so grateful that Liz Ise with Chancey Charm Dallas was able to connect with me to make this dream a reality.

You can see this shoot featured at:

The Southeastern Bride 

Each vendor went above and beyond to make this shoot come together, and I loved the chance to work with all of them. Alex Fly Designs and S.Arias Creates truly out did themselves with the paper suite and gave me too many beautiful options so you’ll see all those options well documented, sorry I’m not sorry ūüėČ Our model couple was a real life couple and they told me they were nervous but they were so at ease in front of the camera and totally rocked the day!! I mean the couple portraits are drop. dead. gorgeous. Liz did an amazing job pulling together our beautiful blue toile inspired table scape and place settings and the pottery place cards by Fleurs and Fetes were such a unique touch. I literally dream about Lizzie Bee’s bouquet from this shoot and 100% believe it was “spring-romance” embodied. Lastly, I taste tested HD Liquid Catering and not only are their masters at their craft with a keen eye for detail and perfection but they also make some crazy yummy drinks. ¬†I could go on and on about these vendors but really should like the photos speak for themselves!¬†Below is more information about the shoot, where our inspiration came from, and how we hoped to inspire future brides. Enjoy!

In the south, romance seems to float in the air like the sweet scent of magnolia blossoms. Hidden amongst tall trees in the Texas countryside, The White Sparrow Barn is the perfect backdrop for a sweet, southern affair. The neutral colors contrast perfectly with the lush and green landscape that surround the barn. Inside, the finishes and details make for a cozy and homey feel. The light flows through the barn’s windows and fills the room with sunshine.
Our goal with this design was to bring the classic southern style back through springtime color palettes, a nod to vintage, and to provoke the essence of sweetness. The feminine details of the florals and place settings showcase the beauty of mixing clean lines and varied textures. The White Sparrow’s familiar white walls and high ceilings are so quintessential, but the grounds that surround the building are just as stunning. With such a beautiful day, we wanted to bring the outdoors to the main stage.
Our bride and groom spent the day hand-in-hand soaking up the springtime sunshine and sharing their love. The bride, Elin, is a local photographer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Her and her beau thoroughly enjoyed being on the opposite side of the camera for a change. Their sweetness towards each other was palpable and gave life to our vision of sweet, southern romance. 
The barn was filled with the most amazing floral scents thanks to the fabulous Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe. Their work gave proof to the fact simple doesn’t mean dull. By selecting only a few specific varieties of florals, we were able to showcase the china patterns and luxe details. The bride’s bouquet was made organically once Lizzie was in the space and felt all the details come together. This custom and organic approach to floral creation sets Lizzie apart.
Overall, this shoot brought us back to classic springtime romance. For brides looking to add current trends to their wedding day while maintaining a timeless taste, these details are perfect.
