Marie Gabrielle Wedding
With the busyness of life and business, I didn't have a spare second to get this shoot on my website! What was I thinking? I'm so excited things have slowed down just enough for me to get on of my ALL TIME favorite styled shoots up! I was also so humbled when Green Wedding Shoes featured this last summer!! Such an honor from such a wonderful publication! Ok...so enough of the small talk...let's get into the details of this styled shoot.
This styled shoot took place at one of the most beautiful venues I've seen. marie gabrielle is a quiet garden centered right smack in the middle of the hustle and bustle of dallas, texas. believe it or not, it's tranquil and peaceful. They were the most gracious and kind hosts to all the vendors.
being apart of this styled wedding has been one of the highlights of my very short career in this business so far. the work that went into this was so apparent. stacy hillstead, the owner of maxwell + gray did an outstanding job of coordinating such a HUGE shoot! i never saw her break a sweat! you need someone to coordinate your wedding...she's your girl. let me tell ya. from the styling by laura cadenhead to the OUTSTANDING paper flower wall by tiana mae designs, every vendor KILLED it. west elm brought us the most beautiful table tops and decor that was placed on gorgeous furniture from perch event decor. Pollen Events made the most lush arrangements adding just the right touch to the already perfect decor!
and can we talk about the delicious goodies that were there? from the carmels (wildflower carmel) to the scrumptious popsicles that berry naked pops brought that went perfectly with one of the most beautifully delicious wedding cakes by whisk until sweet. i just can't even.
we had a stunning group of models that evening with the most KILLER hair and makeup done by none other than the fabulous natalia issa. if you want to look and feel beautiful, you MUST book her. her skills blow me away every time i see her work. AMAZE. our lovely bride and groom models (kourtney kellar and tanner oxner) knocked it out of the park. the bridal party models were super fun and easy to work with. i enjoyed getting to know each of them. (candace brand, kara stout, ryan robertsand our lovely flower girl, maven bryant.) All the girl models were decked out in THE MOST GORGEOUS dress from The Blushing Bride Boutique! The owner, Shana Lepsis ALWAYS has the most STUNNING gowns in her shop! If you are bride in need of a one of a kind dress...The Blushing Bride Boutique is THE PLACE to go!!!
to say this was successful would be an understatement. still in awe that i got to be apart. thank you, thank you to each of you. see below for a full list of vendors.
