It’s surreal that we’re finally able to share this dear-to-our-heart editorial with you! I’ve had to keep from sharing the images since December 2010 (yes, that was extremely difficult to do!) As you may have seen a few featured images here and there, now that the print feature is out, I’m finally able to feature the entire shoot on our blog! Just in time to complete the month of love, feast your eyes on rich pomegranate, gold tones and the inspiring details from this shoot.

The pomegranate was a big inspiration for us due to the symbolism of plentifulness, fruitfulness and sweetness- a feeling that we believe all brides should have in their weddings.

We brainstormed for weeks and Khaled drew a storyboard to help us visualize what we wanted to create. Brenda and I created an inspiration board and soon enough the project was under way and we were ready to create some magical images. We could not have brought these ideas to life without the incredibly talented team we were blessed with! A huge thanks to everyone that was part of this wonderful adventure, we look forward to working together again soon!

At the end of this post you’ll find a beautiful film created by the super-talented Bryan Coward of Tampa Wonderworks. You’ll also see Khaled make a cameo in the last few minutes of the behind-the-scenes!
