Gold & Ivy | Lauren Connelly | Vintage Now Modern Collaboration

One of the things that I so enjoy about blogging is the opportunity to meet and connect with other creatives and entrepreneurs pursuing the things they love most. Community is so important since it allows different people with different skills to come together and utilize their strengths to create something so beautiful! I recently had the opportunity to work on a styled shoot for Gold & Ivy candles with a few other locals including Lauren Connelly and Vintage now Modern.

Now, I love me a good scented candle. I don't know about you, but scents have a way of bringing memories flooding back to my mind. We love burning candles in our little brick ranch to keep everything smelling nice and fresh. They make the perfect addition to your home and also serve as excellent gifts for any occasion!

Gold & Ivy candles are handcrafted soy candles that smell as lovely as they look! New Jersey native, Alexis, started Gold & Ivy after utilizing candles as a way to unwind. I personally own the Gold & Ivy lemongrass candle, and it has such a nice clean scent. I love burning it in our kitchen to keep it smelling fresh and crisp!

If you've never been to Vintage Now Modern, what are you waiting for? Run, don't walk to the cutest home decor and antique shop in Greenville. All of these photos were taken in their shop, and I can say that I would be 100% happy if I could just move in to this cute little downtown shop! This was such a great location for our styled shoot, and it will most likely give you all the Chip and JoJo vibes!

All of these lovely photos in today's post were taken by Lauren Connelly over at Writer Lauren Connelly! Lauren is a Florida native living in Greenville, SC, and she is a great local content writer and product photographer. Lauren was so sweet and easy to work with. Be sure to check out her gorgeous portfolio, and browse her website for more details on what she has to offer!

This styled shoot was a great experience, and I loved being exposed to other local creatives. Be sure to check out Lauren's content and photography services, stop by Vintage Now Modern when you're in downtown Greenville, and pick up a Gold & Ivy candle from their Etsy shop!
