|(A photo from our wedding on August 31, 2008)|
I was never big on the business of being a bride. I was more excited about dreaming up an unparalleled menu of marinated bocconcini, gourmet pot roast and butterscotch pudding, and wearing a Carolina Herrera couture gown, than anything else (other than bonding myself to my husband for life, of course). Shocker, right?
However, flipping through magazines was definitely a treat. The wedding we fashioned ours after came from Los Angeles Weddings (from the publishers of Los Angeles magazine) which I coincidentally worked for at the time. There is something so magical about observing another couple's manifestation of ideas, especially when it's classy, timeless and innovative.
All of those aspects are shown here, in a workshop shoot overseen and styled by Carter & Cook Event Co. I would never, and I mean never, subject you to anything wedding-related unless it was absolutely to die for. And this shoot, conducted with a real a couple in an enchanted forest of robin's egg blue and orange sherbert is astounding. It's little touches like colorful popsicles and a floral sweater on the bride during photos that makes a wedding much more than just a wedding. I'm completely smitten--the lavish campground design triumphs anything I've ever seen in Martha Stewart Weddings.
