Found My Checkmate

checkmate wedding inspiration

For this fun Found My Checkmate shoot, Carly Rae Weddings and Michelle Kim Photography teamed up to blend two bold ideas (a bold checker pattern and bright artistic flowers!) into one stunning unique wedding concept. Loving all the bright colors and gorgeous flowers from this shoot!
