On September 26th, I successfully pulled off my first styled wedding shoot. And let me tell you- it was worth the blood, sweat, and tears! Having never planned a wedding, I was petrified at the idea of planning a fake one; but thanks to my amazing vendors and participants, it was such an amazing day!
I first secured my brides and grooms- authentic couples with a genuine chemistry to capture. I chose my dear friends Brittany and Zoe, and their boyfriends. Emma Swacker and Shanice Mac arrived on location and completed the most amazing hair and makeup on my brides, which complemented their David's Bridal gowns immaculately! They looked like real-life princesses; my heart was so full! Thanks to Prom and Beyond, their prince charmings looked pretty spectacular themselves. Faith's Florals created beautiful bouquets that tied the look together!
With 20 photographers surrounding them, these two couples cooperated so well in bringing love to life. We had so much fun playing pretend and capturing one of the most amazing days I've ever had. Not to mention we got to enjoy the most amazing cake from Sweet Design Bakery and beautiful cupcakes and cookies from Sprinkled Sweet Shop.
I must admit, these two couples made me fall in love with weddings! This was hands-down the most amazing experience I have had, and I learned so much about planning and coordinating. Could your wedding be next? I'm now booking for 2019 and 2020! Until next time!
