Sneak Peak–Styled Photo Shoot

Happy Friday!

Happy Birthday to me!! What better way for me than to give you a sneak peak of the photo shoot I did in December that I’ve been dying to show off!

I collaborated with a “dream team”of vendors and honestly, I couldn’t have done it without any of them.…. the amazingly talented photographer, Brendan of Brendan Coughlin Productions, my gorgeous & super sweet models, Sarah Maillet & Dan Haggerty, the out of the box floral designer, Jason of Outbloom Floral, stationery genius, Celeste of Impress Me Designs, the linen extraordinaire, Jennifer at Perfect Party Linens, the stunning chivari chairs rentals provided by Ashley at Exeter Events & Tents , Scott at Entertainment by Scott Sica, who is the uplight guru that adds that little extra something to any event, and I especially couldn’t have done it without meeting Patty at Seaglass Events, who is the Functions Director at the exquisitely, unique venue of the Blue Ocean Music Hall located at The Pavilion in Salisbury, MA.

That day, when I saw it all come together, the vision in my head catapulted to exceed my expectations. The energy in the room was electrifying! I felt without even seeing any of the photos, they were going to be unbelievable…. I wasn’t wrong, if I do say so myself.

I designed this shoot with Sarah specifically in mind and I hadn’t even met her yet! I was lucky she said yes when I reached out to her on Facebook about doing it. She’s such a peach, one of my biggest cheerleaders, not to mention STUNNING and now, I’m blessed to call her a friend.

I was attending a bridal conference in Baltimore when I was sitting at the hotel restaurant bar having lunch & of course, a glass of wine when the ideas came flowing out. I couldn’t write them down fast enough.

I knew I wanted her in a red dress and showing off her gorgeous tattoos. I wanted to show that a bride can wear something other than white on they’re wedding day and still have a classy, edgy look to it.

I can’t thank my friend Tasha over at Deja Veil enough for keeping her eyes out for the perfect dress. I think she thought I was nuts when I first approached her about the idea of dying a white one red {of course, didn’t tell me that, she just said, sure why not!}. Thank god we didn’t have to go that route because this beauty came strolling into her shop. It was exactly what I wanted!

I’m still flying high every time I see these pictures & we’re already in the works to do another one!

Vendor Love — Tara Lynn Bridal

Happy Wednesday!

I just love it when a vendor reaches out to me and they tell me they love what I’m all about & how different I am! Always puts a smile on my face & I’ll be honest, I never get tired of hearing it. Anyway, enough of me being on my soapbox, I wanted to tell you about one of those vendors who did just that.

The fabulously talented Tara Lynn Bridal! Tara Lynn is a custom, handmade, eco-friendly wedding dress designer. Her philosophy is she “creates natural fiber wedding gowns because she cares just as much about the women who wear the dresses as she does about her creation. Every one of Tara Lynn’s brides is exalted in a natural-fiber, wearable-art gown that is as sublime as the bride herself.” 

OK, so let me show you some of my favorites….

Isn’t the red in that dress just so unique & stunning!

I just love how that one is just so fun & dainty at the same time!

That one just reminds of me a Greek goddess & who doesn’t want to embrace THAT on they’re wedding day!

I’m always in awe of talents like this, especially since I can only do the bare minimum when it comes to sewing! 
So, if you’re looking for a unique wedding dress that you design yourself, Tara Lynn Bridal is right up your alley! And, as Tara Lynn states right on her home page, “The woman who chooses Tara Lynn Bridal does so because, surrounded by the elements and people she loves most, she wants to enrobe herself in a gown that asserts her intrinsic spirit and compliments her best features.”

Tara Lynn Bridal is located in Sutton, Vermont, but ships throughout the US, Canada & Internationally. Check out her full site here for more information & other fabulous dresses! Than call me for you’re Coordinating needs, so I can see your one of a kind dress too!

~Cheers!
