The ladies were sweet and welcoming. The room was crispy white. The natural light was making its way through the windows shining down on copper trinkets and green ferns-It was like an indoor wonderland and I just wanted to have a tea party with my new friends.
I was able to be part of a stylized shoot as a 'model.' I by no means consider myself a 'model'- I do, however, find that I don't mind getting pictures taken of myself-I just don't really like looking at them afterwards. This shoot was completely different- I was so excited to see the pictures. I believe it was because you could not only see the hard work that was put into the project you could feel it as well. I was ecstatic that they chose me to come help with a project that was so important to them- it honestly made it important to myself.
This project was a wedding theme that had my heart achin' to re-decorate my home-which is exactly how I think a wedding should feel-homey. I was able to take on the role of a bridesmaid alongside two gorgeous girls to a breathtaking bride and groom. It was interesting to watch friendships quickly building between us all since none of us had met beforehand.
Aubrey Taiese was the amazing photographer behind the camera. She would "oooohh, awwwee, and yes yes yes" with each click of the camera. She made you feel...well, special and you just knew you were doing something right, which was very reassuring. She would get on the ground and climb on chairs just to get the perfect shot for everyone, she is confident in her work-she is exactly what you want in a photographer photographing your 'baby.'
The amazing floral was perfectly curated by Floral Rhapsody. She was so precise on how the flowers were placed in each arrangement, her eyes definitely saw something that mine did not-it's a talent I long for. She was so delicate with each piece of fern and every flower stem-you could tell she had a unique appreciation for the beauties that nature graciously gifts to us.
Annie Pbee was the mastermind behind the delicious cakes and cupcakes. The cakes shimmered, sparkled, and twinkled all while making my stomach ache-it was torn between eating the beauties, and continuing to stare at them because they were too pretty to ruin. I was in awe with her talent; how each gold foil was perfectly arranged, how each frosting stroke was smooth, and how the glitter laid in its place. I could tell by each microscopic detail from the baked goodies that Annie was a very patient person.
The trinkets and gorgeous unique furniture were provided by Refined Vintage Events-who has wedding rentals that would make any bride or even a princess' dreams come true. There were little heart-stirring calligraphy notes done by wonderful Karli Noel Calligraphy that scattered throughout the decor that seemed to top it off like the cherry on top of ice cream sundae. The delicate hand crafted jewelry from Olive and Deer helped bring an added unique touch to each of of girls' fingers and necks-plus it's made from a local company so that makes me all giddy inside. It all came together and all because of one little dream from an inspiring event stylist Erica Crawley Kopp who, you could tell, wanted it to perfect, and it was exactly that-The perfect mix of emerald, gold and love ferns.
