Hi friends. For this shoot, I had three rules: 1. No burlap. 2. No mason jars. 3. Style, plan, and shoot within two weeks.
In the world of DIY weddings, this made it tough!
But, with the help of two friends as models, a professional hair stylist and make up artist, a set designer, a florist with years of experience, a handy wedding stationery company, a wedding event planner with the most romantic event venue of all time, and a wedding bridal shoppe with a talent for fit and alterations, I did it. Okay, they did it.
I have two websites to design by the end of September, and a month of weddings, so I wanted to make sure that this shoot made it before November. Because, then it's turkey month. Then comes the month of magic and Santa. And then, a new year begins and I have a completely different, if not more lengthy, bucket list for 2015.
I'd like to publicly thank all who helped behind the scenes or in spirit, and I look forward to another styled bridal shoot in January. Which, thank goodness, is already planned.
Look to the end of the post for a vendor listing, as well as a quick video behind-the-scenes.
