Willy Wonka Inspired wedding shoot at The Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ with MDS Floral

Wow! I am just beyond excited to share this shoot with you! The idea was to design a Willy Wonka inspired wedding with concept and styling by Kay English, and event and floral design (including the candy bouquet) by the amazing MDS Floral Designs. It's obviously not a real wedding but it's so fun to inspire new wedding trends through doing editorial shoots! The shoot was set at the stunning Ashford Estate by Weddings of Distinction. The cappuccino colored wedding gown was provided by the incredible Sarah Seven and the beautiful purple hairpiece by Lo Boheme. The exquisite chocolate cake was designed by the lovely Jen at The Hudson Cakery. The delicious cookies and cake jars were designed by the awesome Tookies Etsy Shop. Krysalis Kreations did the stunning hair and makeup with the modern purple twist! The pretty purple belt is from Etsy's Bridal Shoppe and the golden bowtie was handmade by Etsy's Rufflentuck. The golden sparkle shoes are from Mod Cloth. Special thanks to Marla and Brian for modeling for the shoot and Kristina for 2nd shooting. So grab a bar of chocolate, and a cup of cappuccino and enjoy!!! :)
