With the recent release of our brand new Spring/Summer 2019 issue, we could not be more excited to start sharing a closer look into our gorgeous new editorial features! Today, we’re focusing on this one-of-a-kind bold and bright nostalgic Norwegian color collab captured at the stunning Camp Loughridge. Shot by the oh-so talented Chloe Photography, this design truly embodies all the beautiful elements of warm-weather weddings we can’t seem to get enough of: eye-popping hues, fresh florals and a charming venue to showcase every unique detail.

Rentals from Marianne’s set the scene, while The Flower Shop Pryor provided a lovely array of blooms that accented a delectable Norwegian wedding cake from Sweet Devotion Cakery in the most perfect way! Gowns from Prim in Oklahoma City, along with dazzling accessories from Naifeh Fine Jewelry pulled the radiant color palette together, and added just the right amount of sparkle this shoot needed. Finally, Hazel Paper Co. created the sweetest invitation suite, featuring a floral interior envelope and a personalized monogram.
