If you were here earlier today, you might have seen our shoot that we put together of just me and Christie. Well now I have another shoot to show you all!! Back in September, before Christie was even a thought on this little blog, I styled a shoot and asked Christie and her husband Joe to be a part of it. It was a lot of fun, I wrote a little bit about how I felt being a stylist. It was fun!
We were so honored to have the photo shoot featured on a wedding blog called Rustic Wedding Chic back in January and now it is your turn to see them all! The photos were all taken by Lindsey Lane Photography, also a very talented lady! Make sure you check her out and tell her we sent ya over!
Since I ‘styled’ the shoot, I am gonna tell you a little about the thought behind it! Christie had her dress already, it was an old bridesmaid’s dress. It was the wrong length, so we took it up in the front and pinned it, let the back hang down a bit as a ‘train’ and tied a ribbon around her waist so you couldn’t see the pins, voila! We felt like it was a perfect fit. Joe is looking dapper in his suspenders and newsboy cap!
So when thinking about styling this shoot, I knew I wanted to do the travel theme because I wanted to use the train station and the old luggage. The train station we used also had these beautiful trees with the light shining through that Lindsey so beautifully captured. I loved that they were the big oak trees with all the leaves on the ground. It fit perfectly.
I also knew I wanted something different than just a cake. I had the idea of them eating a cake truffle, arms wrapped around like the bottom picture. So I contacted Donna at Sweet Little Cakes and she provided the cake truffles you see. Yes, they are as good as they look and yes, we polished them off!
The suitcases are actually vintage, which was kinda fun. One is my granmother’s and she actually still uses it! The luggage tags were made by the very talented ladies at The Pomegranate Basket as were all the paper goods in this shoot. These ladies are really the best!
The veil/headpiece I actually made. I just took a piece of lace and cut it into the size/shape I was looking for. Then I brushed it with watered down elmers glue and had it dry and set to shape while laying on a bowl. I bought the flower thing at Claire’s and pinned it on and in her hair. I actually did her hair as well, which was pin girls back away from her face.
I hope you liked the pictures! There are more, but too many to share with you here now, but you can go check out our Facebook page for the whole album! Christie and Joe were great and Lindsey did a fantastic job with the photos!
