behind the scenes: bridal

Just by looking at these 'behind the scene' shots, literally quick takes between adjustments and such, that all of these photographs turned out SO beautiful. White, crisp, modern, and everything bridal! Check out those ruffle curtains {previously posted here} too! They create the most perfect texture, without distracting.

Thirsty Thursday

This specific recipe is probably for a larger group, summer get together, or I guess if you like to drink a lot....yourself! It's very summery and refreshing, especially with the fresh lemon and mint sprigs. I would recommend getting a cute pitcher and serving like that!

Watermelonade Mixers
  • 1 {12-pound} watermelon {preferably seedless}
  • 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 16 cups ice cubes, divided
  • 12.7 ounces {Half of a Fifth} of Watermelon Flavored Vodka
  • lemon slices; mint sprigs

  • Cut watermelon flesh into 2-inch chunks and discard rind. Purée one fourth of watermelon in a blender with 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp lemon juice, 4 cups ice, and a pinch of salt. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, discarding solids. Make 3 more batches. Add the Watermelon Vodka and sugar to taste. Serve over ice.

Wedding Bells

We have a wedding inspired shoot coming up tomorrow and we couldn't be more excited. We do shoot a lot of food but love shooting a variety of different products and tomorrow is no exception! We will have a makeup & hairstylist, models, and will be shooting a variety of room scenes. The theme is white, white and more white {hello bridal}! We are hanging sheers on a white sweep in order to create texture. We got plain white sheers {exactly what the client wanted} but also white sheers with a little twist in order to offer some variety! We like to make sure all bases are covered and sometimes it's good to offer options just in case the client might want some.
