Today’s post is one of the cutest photoshoots we have ever seen! From the bride’s ruffled blue dress to the adorable pug in a bowtie, everything about it makes us smile. Mandy and Zoe of Dottie Creations and Dottie Photography did all the styling, stationery, and photography themselves! What talented ladies.

Sign that reads, "Today is going to be the best day ever!"  Bride holding a pair of red shoes

The fun signage is a super cost effective way to add some major style points to your wedding. And those red shoes – swoon!!

Pug in a red bowtie

Seriously, how cute is that pug?

We love how they wrapped all the tin cans with fun sayings as well.

Chelsea and Gareth, the models, looked stunning! We love the vintage feel of their outfits and her makeup.

Such a fun and colorful dessert table! We want some of everything, especially those heart shaped macaroons.

white, red, blue, and yellow striped cupcakes with cherry on top

Yes indeed! We love that sign.

What a cute and easy prop!! If you’re having a photobooth, why not leave books out and have guests write you notes on the different pages?

Thanks Mandy and Zoe for letting us feature your work! You can see more photos from this adorable shoot on Rock n’ Roll Bride.
