A Styled Seaside Wedding with Ruby Red Heels

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.

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

Seriously, how cute is that pug in a red velvet bow tie?

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 red macaroons.

Yes indeed! We love that sign — “Diets are for losers eat the CAKE!”

What a cute and easy prop!! If you’re having a photobooth at your reception, 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.
