This shoot at The Howey Mansion was filled with textures and elegance. Beautiful metallic tones paired with dusty blue and white accented the neutral tones of the wedding venue.
Although the shoot itself was stunning, what was even more lovely was the story behind the happiness of the model bride, Lexi. Wedding planner Corinne of CV Event Planner tells us why this was such a special shoot for Lexi.
From Wedding Planner, CV Event Planning:
“In 2015, Lexi and Danny got married. What was supposed to the most magical time of their lives was quickly turning into a nightmare for Lexi. She was having an unbelievable difficult time finding a wedding dress. At the time she weighed 485 pounds and was so close to giving up on finding the dress. Luckily for her at the very last minute, she found a dress. She wanted to feel like Cinderella on her wedding day but felt far from that.
Fast forward 5 years, Lexi has lost over 300 pounds. She is feeling the best that she has ever felt in her entire life. Her journey has inspired millions of women all over. This styled shoot was a way for Lexi and Danny to get to have their happily ever after. We wanted for Lexi to be able to feel like the Cinderella bride she has always dreamt of. From the dress to the tablescape this was a fairytale come to life. Now when Lexi and Danny look back at their wedding pictures they will be reminded of the success, love, and happiness at that moment.”
