HMM in the News: Richmond Weddings Magazine

February 10th, 2014

We were honored when asked to host this exquisite inspiration shoot, and now we are excited to share that it was recently featured in the 2014 Richmond Weddings Magazine issue!

It was certainly a team effort to create this “Snow White’s Winter Wedding” stylized shoot. Elegant Party Plans designed this set from beginning to end and enlisted the help of Green Flamingo to create these lovely floral designs! All of the photos were perfectly captured by Shalese Danielle Photography.

Here are a few of our favorite photos of this whimsical, woodland shoot! We hope you love them as much as we do!

Three cheers to everyone who worked so hard to make this inspiration shoot such a successful. And, many thanks to our friends at Richmond Weddings for this feature!

See you soon,
Paula & Martin Ramirez
