I cannot tell you how excited I was (and the dance party that ensued) when I got a text from esteemed photographer Morgan Trinker that our "You're My Lucky Charm" stylized shoot was going to be published by Green Wedding Shoes for St. Patrick's Day! Morgan and I have been swapping emails and scatterbrained phone calls since early January, making her gorgeous St. Paddy's Day dreams come true for this gorgeousness. Ob-sessed.
One weekend nearing the end of February, I loaded up my Yaris with table linens, gorgeous florals by Artisan Flowers, a LulaKate dress from The Bride Room, rental votives, glassware, and chargers from Liberty Party Rentals, a bunch of miscellaneous bits and pieces to fill in the blanks, and an adventuresome husband happy to "work" on a shoot at a brewery in the lovely Magic City of Birmingham, Alabama.
Artisan Flowers' florals were just stunning! Love her pops-of-color ranunculus bouquet and fun lotus centerpieces. Also -- don't you just adore the little charm necklace our bride wore? Morgan made it! She's so crafty!!
Last but not least, the gorgeous tablescape! I had a BLAST styling this little satin number up with raspberry striped napkins, glittery placemats (can you BELIEVE they're just scrapbook paper pieces?!), and a host of gorgeously shaped glasses from Liberty Party Rental!
Being a part of such an amazing shoot was just an unbelievable experience! I still can't get over how gorgeous everything was and how much fun (albeit exhausting) the weekend played out to be. :) Here's a sneak peek below from behind-the-scenes! See film footage from the shoot on our feature at Green Wedding Shoes by Kinora Films -- and check out GWS or the KDE Facebook page to see even more beautiful images from the shoot!
