I am so excited Sarah's dress, my photograph, is featured in the"Going to the Chapel" Etsy email today. Go check your inbox if you get Etsy emails, and if not, check it out here and here. It's under "Best Dressed Guest"...Blushing Elopement Gown. And, its for sale if you want it!
And because it was featured today, I am reposting the shoot. Enjoy!
I had a dream...well maybe not a dream, but a vision. I wanted to create a styled shoot, something that would showcase my work, and other talents in my small town. I wanted to do an elopement shoot, and I wanted a storyline to go with it. So here is the story...
Guy meets girl. Girl and guy fall in love...they want to get married, but on a budget, and just the two of them...an elopement.
In preparation for the wedding, she sketches out ideas for her dress, but didn't want a typical wedding dress. She has a talent with a needle and thread, and makes it herself. She wanted something that said,"I'm beautiful" with a little sparkle, and something that would look great with her red hair. While she prepares in her way for the wedding, he prepares in his way and uses his handyman skills by making a wall that would symbolize an alter for the small and quaint wedding.
She meets him at their favorite spot carrying their wedding cake she made with love, and he takes her as his bride, with his grandmother's charming coral ring. The end.
