Fairytale-Inspired Styled Shoot Chosen for Publication!

Updated: Feb 19

We are thrilled to share the exhilarating news that our fairytale-inspired styled shoot has been selected for publication by ‘A Princess Inspired’!

Titled "Vintage Meets Modern Enchanted Fairytale," this shoot was a labor of love, where we curated a captivating experience at the picturesque garden venue, Seibels House & Gardens in Columbia, SC, transporting viewers into a world of romance and regality. With the collaboration of 15 exceptional vendors and the involvement of two outstanding models, our goal was to craft an atmosphere of timeless elegance with a contemporary edge. The color palette, featuring shades of light pink with slight pops of medium pink, added a layer of softness and vibrancy.


At the heart of this shoot was our remarkable bride model, Elle Ricker, a rising influencer and aspiring model with a track record of excellence. Her achievements, including multiple pageant wins, being crowned homecoming queen, and most recently, being crowned Miss South Carolina Collegiate America 2024, speak volumes about her charisma and presence. She has garnered a dedicated Instagram following of 28,000 and TikTok following of 83,000, a testament to her influence, dedication, and connection with her peers.


Innovative concepts were not just limited to our bride, as we introduced a sophisticated guest favor that set a new standard in Columbia – engraved compact mirrors. In this delightful corner, guests would be invited to personalize a compact mirror with a date, word, name, monogram, or short quote of their choosing, and watch as the expert hand of talented engraver, Kelli Shealy, owner Swirls and Script Calligraphy, produces this cherished keepsake before their eyes.

To further infuse our shoot with a touch of enchantment, we chose a symbolic faux wedding date of November 22, honoring the release of "Beauty and the Beast." This subtle nod added an extra layer of meaning to our fairytale theme, resonating with fans of this timeless tale.


One of the standout elements was the inclusion of a majestic black horse named “Bliss”, gracefully integrated into the shoot to elevate the fairytale ambiance. This breathtaking addition, along with the meticulously selected details, elevated every aspect of the shoot to a level of unparalleled enchantment.


I am proud to say that our collaboration of vendors, many of whom are esteemed award winners within the industry, was pivotal in bringing this vision to life. Their expertise and dedication elevated every facet of the shoot, ensuring that each moment was captured in its full splendor.


Now, as we eagerly await the publication of our shoot, we are filled with gratitude for the opportunity to share our vision with the world. We cannot wait to see our work grace the feeds of ‘A Princess Inspired’ followers and inspire others to believe in the enduring magic of love and happily ever after.

Thank you to the wonderful companies and individuals who collaboratively brought this magical vision to life!!
