As a pre-cursor to the first ever The Not Wedding event in Wichita, locally participating vendors Heartland Photography, and Events by Ashley decided to get together for a little inspiration shoot. The event they created was a fun bachelorette/bridal shower, with lots of silver, black, and bright beautiful pops of red.
Here's a little bit from Ashley about the shoot inspiration:
As we were preparing for the styled shoot that precedes Kansas' first NotWedding, we wanted to do something special. We opted for a bachelorette night that included cooking class, dinner, drinks and gifts. I wanted to do something intimate, classy and bold. This included holding the event at a private residence over a restaurant. You can jazz up somebody's backyard like we did. That was my favorite part.
We wanted to focus on making the party personal for guests, from name cards at dinner to the recipe and encouragement & advice cards they filled out for the bride to be. Every bride wants something different for her event. For the dessert bar I wanted to make it memorable. Typically you see candles or flowers in the glass globes. Nobody would think to use those containers for dessert.
