The Water Shoot
I find so much inspiration in dishes! I styled this entire shoot around a platter and teacups set I found in my attic (Perks to a short sale, there was so much stuff up there!!)... A navy blue and white floral pattern was all I needed to spark this nautical look. Anytime I get the opportunity to shoot near water, I take it, but this time I decided to shoot IN the water. We were knee deep the entire time including all the furniture. Alyssa and Josh, my wonderful models, were so relaxed and go with the flow. They got very wet at the end (which I feel was totally worth it, see below). I love meeting new vendors and seeing their vision for the project! Julie Miner of Julie Miner Events put together these gorgeous flowers. How beautiful are pink and blue together!? We weren't expecting all this sunlight during the shoot but everything sparkled on the water and it just worked out in our favor. Ashley of Styling by Ashley Rae did Alyssa's hair in these romantic curls <3 and Candice of Best Little Cakehouse created this adorable blue stripe cake. Alyssa's dress was put together in pieces by me. I found the sequin pink tube top in a vintage store on Etsy and put together the skirt for under $20 in tulle. A day before the shoot I found some last minute inspiration in my own outfit and chopped up my Old Navy shirt to recover some old chairs. I didn't want that shirt anyway ;) Just Invite Me created these gorgeous invitations to top it all off...
Can you imagine an evening reception with your toes in the water? Low sun romance... We started to lose the sun so heck with the outfits! Oh my gosh soooo hot!
