Good morning pearlies! As we start to say our bittersweet goodbyes to summer, we thought this beautiful post was completely fitting. This shoot means a lot to me personally because I designed all the dresses and accessories and got to pick the crew to be a part of it. Where my girls at? Hehe!
I’ve known our model Raven for years and years, and knew when I was thinking about the kind of “look” I wanted for this (DEFINITELY red hair…DEFINITELY tattoos), she was the perfect candidate. Photography was done by Mel Klemz who I used to have slumber parties with, and shared my first back and forth notepad with in high school. You know the ones…where you write each other and trade it off so they can write you back while you pray they don’t lose it because then everyone will know you have the biggest crush on (insert high school crush’s name here). Styling was of course done by my bestie MiMi and AKM Events, Flowers were done by the sweet and super talented florist Audrey of Lake Effect Florals, and the fun, but natural hair and make-up by Melissa Marshall and Katelyn Pruitt.
I definitely felt like we were the dream team when I got these gorgeous shots back. Thanks so much girls for being a part of this, and I hope all of you brides to be are inspired by these unique looks we put together for you. If you weren’t planning on a beach wedding, you may be now. 😉
Thanks for reading us today pearlies! We have one more nod to summer for you tomorrow, and then bring on the pumpkin spice latte’s and my cute boots and scarves because fall will be here. We will be bringing in the season by talking about coffee, so I guess it won’t be all that bad. 🙂
It’s been a beautiful summer, but it will soon be gone…just like (pink) dust in the wind.
Chrissy and MiMi
