What started out as an afterthought with photographers scrambling to find bits and pieces to place on a hotel room floor while the bride got ready, the flat lay photo is now one of the most anticipated shots in a wedding album. Personal and artistic, it can be perceived as a symbolic portrait of a couple expressed through jewelry, heirloom keepsakes, and invitations. And together, these objects of affection tell a very special story.

Planning and curating are essential to getting a gorgeous flat lay wedding photo. It’s all in the details, so think about which elements of being a bride and getting married mean the most to you. Be sure to talk with your photographer ahead of time – some pros are very experienced in this type of photography and even carry a styling kit with them. Lastly, decorative accents such as flowers and petals, ribbon, ornate dishes, and beautiful ring boxes all help in making a perfect picture. To stimulate a creative flow of ideas, we rounded up highlights of flat lay shots from our Real BB Weddings.

In an effort to stay positive, motivated, and make the best of the situation this past year, many of us set goals, which often involved learning a new skill or tackling a challenging project. Intentions were good starting out and we were excited to master a foreign language, finally finish those home improvements, and dust off the sewing machine. But as weeks turned into months turned into a year and counting, that initial drive ‘to make and do’ waned. Rest assured, you are not alone if during this time, comfort and solace was found in watching episode after episode of the numerous TV shows streaming online. The characters, story lines (often romantic and full of drama!), fabulous costumes, and idyllic scenery offered escapism from the harsh realities unfolding around us daily.

With just six months between getting engaged and the day of her wedding, Lorenza had to move fast on major decisions that take most brides over a year to make. She knew this.
