If you haven’t picked up the current 2016 issue of Southern Utah Bride Magazine, drop by our shop for a printed copy or if you’d rather you can view it online here.

Once you’ve seen it, you’ll notice that today’s blog post is all about the Safari Inspired Wedding Shoot featured in the magazine under the article “Planning Without Pinterest.”

Here you’ll receive our inside scoop on how we made this dreamy idea with the Bride and Groom in two different looks come to life and you might even be convinced that, with our help, your wedding can be whatever you imagine.

When it comes to paper details for a wedding having an incredibly talented person, like Kortney Eggertz, design them for you is a must in our opinion.

For one, we feel that your invitation sets the tone for what your guests can expect at the wedding.

Once they are at the wedding, if the design of the menu and table numbers match the invite then everything comes together to beautifully compliment each detail and you as a couple.

Inside the tent we never strayed from our safari inspired theme; we only magnified it.

Even if your guests don’t notice every delicate detail and the way each piece influences the overall look, they will feel it and enjoy it without even realizing why.

The best part? You, as a couple, will know and cherish the purposeful placement and usage of each tiny tea light because it will be a reflection of the spark that started your love for each other.

Since our design for this wedding was safari inspired we wanted to incorporate both natural earth tones and bright vibrant colors.

We wanted our colors to come through in patterns on throw pillows, in the delectable food and drink provided by Kitchen 435, and more.

Whether you are doing your food served to each person or buffet style, a lovely put together table arrangement makes for the perfect addition to every wedding.

Not interested in a sit down the day of? There’s always the rehearsal dinner!

Putting together all of these details is not easy on your own, but this is what we at Forevermore Events live for.

We absolutely love what we do, so let us do it for you!

Cake time + tea time = the perfect time.

Now, what would a safari be without a means of transportation?

We decided that instead of your classic jeep, we wanted a classy little vintage bike.

We definitely couldn’t have the bike be the only vintage piece, so we added a few more.

Also, you can’t forget about painting the view before your safari is over.

We have officially decided that Southern Utah can resemble almost any place our inspiration comes from.

Remember how we said we wanted to be adding those pops of color?

That’s why we loved adding the red lip to our Bride!

What you are about to see may just be the cutest addition to a styled wedding that we have ever had…

Complete with a floral collar this little goat has our hearts!

We also decided one goat was just not enough…

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again…

Your wedding is about you, so let us help you make it whatever you want to!

Is anyone else in love with this image from the cover of the magazine?

Our favorite part about wedding planning is hearing each couple’s unique story and seeing the wonderful love that they share and then being able to have everyone that is part of their special day hear and see it too.

Another video from NP Films has us completely swooning…

Till next time!
