{Styled Shoot} Lavender Fields by Terra Cooper Photography

wedding styled shoot, South of France inspired wedding shoot

Bonjour tout le monde!  We're feeling a little French today with this fabulous styled shoot that was submitted to us by Terra Cooper Photography.  The shoot takes place in a lavender field, and was inspired by the south of France, where lavender is around every corner.  If any of you know me, you know I love all things French!  I have lived in France, and been back many times.  In fact, my wedding reception was held at a venue that had an area called "Provencal Garden", thus the theme of the wedding was Provence! So, this styled shoot really speaks to my heart.

Terra Cooper explains the inspiration and details behind the shoot:
I have had a great interest in France since I was eight years old when my family hosted our first exchange student. When I was fourteen I saved up for over a year to go to France to visit another exchange student. I spent two weeks in Paris, and then two weeks at their summer home in Aix-en-Provence. I fell in love with the lavender fields. We would eat our meals outside mostly and there was lavender plants all around us and you could smell them all day long. I have since returned to France two more times and each time I fall in love with something new. When I first found out about the lavender fields in Mona, I knew I had to do a shoot down there that reflected my love for the Provence region, but be very chic and elegant as well. I wanted to not distract from the beautiful field itself, so I decided to create a unique glass table and used ghost chairs. I also wanted to incorporate lavender throughout the shoot, as well as white flowers, white accessories, crystals and glass with accents of silver. For the menu I chose some of my favorite things, lavender lemonade, cucumber salad with tomatoes, feta and fresh basil, cheeses and bread, and my favorite pastery in the world, a koiung aman, made right here in Salt Lake at Les Madeleines. Each guest would get a favor sachet of Herbs de Provence as well as a sachet of Lavender. Tracy from the Window Box came up with lots of sparkly details that incorporated the lavender. Alta Moda allowed us to use a gorgeous Vera Wang dress with an asymmetric neckline that added another elegant touch. Tuxedo Junction provided us with a charcoal gray tux that looked amazing on our model Russ. The make-up and hair was done by the amazing Hannah Goodrich and Carrie from Carrie’s Cakes sent us down with one of her stunning all white cakes. We even had a ton of bees around to remind me of actually being in Aix-en-Provence.

So beautiful! And who knew that there were lavender fields like this in the US?  I certainly had no idea.  The next time I'm in Utah, I must go and frolic amongst the lavender! 

I really love the concept of the glass table and ghost chairs.  It works perfectly for a setting like this.  I also love the table decor with the satchels of "herbes de Provence".  It's all gorgeous, and definitely evokes the spirit of the South of France.  

Many thanks to Terra Cooper Photography for submitting to us your lavender field styled shoot, it is a dream!
