This shoot was so much fun! Jordan and I truly had a wonderful time working with all of the vendors involved. Many aspects of this shoot were unique! I’ll start by talking about the venue. This shoot took place at the Museum of Life and Sciences in Durham, which includes a butterfly exhibit and garden. These components definitely create a romantic fairytale-like setting.
I enjoyed getting ready for this shoot because it is a style completely different from what my personal wedding day was. Also, the ladies that helped me get glammed up are so sweet and talented! The theme of this shoot was “Boho,” which is far more trendy than my typical classic style. 🙈 Theresa and Renee did such an awesome job transforming me into a polished boho bride!
The photographer for this shoot was so fun to work with. He gives wonderful direction, as well as has a great imagination that captures the scene. During some of the shots, he told Jordan to whisper different types of cereals in my ear to make me laugh, which was silly but totally worked! We loved working with him. 🙂
One of the vendors that stood out to me was Barbox, which is a mobile-bar service you can have at your wedding! What a cool idea–Especially for venues that do not have a dedicated bar space. It creates a great photo-op as well.
A little behind the scenes info–The dress in this shoot did not fit at all! We clipped the dress with some heavy duty clips either in the front or the back for every shot. Besides that, I loved this style of dress. It fits the boho/trendy vibe, but it is timeless at the same time.
I’m personally an all white flowers kinda girl for weddings, but the color scheme in this shoot was really fun. The yellow flowers really played off of the blue accents, and represented the venue space well.
All of this of course wouldn’t have been accomplished without a wedding planner to fit the many moving pieces together. Thank you, Hillary for organizing this shoot! This created a wonderful opportunity to get so many different creative minds involved.
I hope you enjoyed reading about this shoot! I plan do do more blog posts to add to my Bridal tab in the future!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy almost Friday. 🙂
