So now that we will enter the venue, I do want to show you and tell you the story behind the reveal. So of course the photographer asked for Jess to come by the venue and take a look while its empty of vendors and ready for the big party, take the whole thing in you know what I mean? So the story its kinda silly - as jess enters into the room, and literally breaks down - okay okay getting super emotional - I am in looking for the bathroom on the property lol ( we are on the farm after all ) but my team is seeing all this and retelling this to me while I was so kicking my self in the foot lol. Anyway here is the pic of Jessica -she’s the cutest !
Hi Dahhhlings, as my #top10 2017 wedding series continues I want to talk about this sexy stylized shoot we did (amidst a crazy wedding season of course) so its not really a wedding but it was most definelty inspired by a wedding. And not just any wedding. I mean, I do weddings all year round, I do them in every season, for every budget, for every theme and pallets imaginable. But one thing I noticed in 2017 was that there was an increase in “lunch” weddings, couples want more options then just to have a party and a dinner ( not that there is anything wrong with that) but people want options.
So venues got smart and started to offer Fridays and Sundays and Day time weddings etc... not besides the different days of the week, now there are different vibe to the wedding too. This stylized shoot was designed to show just that. There were two main ideas for this shoot - (one) was to have two brides ( I felt I saw 2 men more often then 2 women when it came to LGBT weddings) and (second) idea for this shoot was that it was a day time / cocktail style wedding. So forget the wine and the heavy dinner, here lay a fun totally sexy get together ( I mean who doesn’t want to wear a gown at day time lol ) surrounded by tons of bubbly, cocktail style bite sized desserts and instead of your traditional wedding cake there were gaudy donut walls more champagne and espresso of course!
So this is how I imagined it - guests would come inside a cocktail space furnished in gorgeous lounge furniture - candles everywhere - its all about leisure and comfort yet looking Uber sexy as you do this. A huge bar is there for you to get any drink you desire, ( mimosas proffered but then again its 5 o’clock somewhere right????) and of course as you talk, lounge, congratulations and eat, you have a stunning backdrop to take photos a la Vanity Fair. I mean common !!! I think that for couples that have less then 100 people - could totally pull this off and make it so utterly theirs with unique details and customer anything really. Its like a brunch,almost - but a bit elevated.
I think I’m gonna start a trend, what you guys think? Sexy cocktail style weddings, yup.
That’s it! :)
This was a huge success, but a huge success take a huge team to put this whole thing together. I am beyond thankful for the whole team and all the effort every one put here - 1000 % - this shoot was truly something special as Elegant Wedding Magazine actually put it on their 2018 Cover !!! WHAT !! YES AND YES. And You can grab a copy at your local Indigo !!! like omg. I know - we are so so thrilled.
There is truly a special feel to this type of wedding, I tell my clients all the time, when I enter into your space / reception/ hall whatever, what inside of it will tell me oh my god this is totally like so and so wedding? ... right? Like what is it in the ambiance, what is it in the air that made it so YOU?? Hence this shoot right. I think that is the only way to do a wedding ohhhhh #micdrop
Below is the sexy cover, you can take a look and then the rest of the shoot - hope you enjoy it darlings
