photo shoot for bride and bloom magazine!!!


O.M.G!!! it has been 2 weeks since i last posted on this blog and i admit, i am feeling completely flaky and embarrassed...shame on me! but hey, things have been a bit busy meeting lots of killer new brides, creating lots of unique new proposals as well as pulling off 3 beautiful weddings over the course of one week in february!

now i WISH i could show you all the AMAZING photos carlie and gabriel ryan took of my 2 tablescapes for the upcoming issue of bride and bloom magazine...but since i have to wait until the pics go to press, here are some fun shots from the shoot last thursday to hold you over!

the hilarious carlie from gabriel ryan photography, the adorable melody from sweet and saucy cakes and me...this is taken right before me and carlie tore into those delicious mini cakes melody made! so yummy!

working on tablescape #2...

melody was SO fun to have onsite the whole time and i loved getting to know her better! she is a gem! and SO talented!
yes folks, the life i lead is so much more unglam than it appears to be...

okay i HAD to post this one...carlie don't kill me! at the end of the shoot, i gave carlie one of the bouquets she had been eye-balling the whole day...but being the perfectionist that she is, she wanted to snap off a couple more shots of the tablescape first...so not knowing what to do with her bouquet, she tucked it between her legs...

i admit, i have never seen this done before! there is something so funny and yet so wrong about this picture! i could not stop laughing!

a HUGE thank you to all the vendors who made that day such a blast and who i am in awe of at how they work their crafts!
