For this Photo Friday we’ll get to take a look at my shots from the styled shoot portion of the CLIC Conference in Alexandria, VA! I had so much fun shooting this and the models were gorgeous – plus Alexandria is a pretty perfect backdrop for any kind of shoot in my opinion. We started with details – and what scrumptious details at that! Every piece was impeccably placed and the colors worked together wonderfully. Nothing was too overpowering on the table settings. Plus, the gold pops were just perfect for the silverware! Then came these beautifully done invitations, place cards, and menu cards. Did you hear my jaw drop? Because it did! The calligraphy and design was done by an amazing artist, Alexa Leigh Design. I wish I’d known about her for my own invites! I think if I’d shown my mother this cake she’d have demanded that I send her a piece. The four layers were very interesting! I have to say, I’ve never seen a cake quite like it but it was so gorgeous! I loved the flowers and delicate lace pattern. I love a happy bride & bridesmaid!! This lovely bride wore her actual wedding dress. That’s right – the bride and groom in this styled shoot were married not too long ago in real life! I was pretty stunned after I learned that they are not, in fact, models generally! They’re too cute!! Again, not real models (somehow)! I had to steal the bridesmaids for some shots on this gorgeous street. Just as a FYI, this is now my favorite street. They don’t even allow buses and trucks down it! Just LOOK at this cool road! Now back to what you’re here for: adorable couples!
This was such a fun shoot and the details were impeccable. I really look forward to working with some of the vendors in the future, and even possibly attending the School of Styling to learn just how to put something like this together!
