Every time I start to work on a new styled shoot, the most exciting part is finding vendors to come play along with me. I've been looking forward to this for a couple of months, and now that it's almost here, I wanted to take a few minutes to brag about our team for Amanda Hedgepeth's Salt Air Workshop styled shoot. I've included everyone's Facebook links so you can go show them some love! Please check them out and like their pages so you can be sure to catch any sneak peeks.
Sweet Pear Paper - Camberly's beautiful, hand-painted paper flowers will be making an appearance for the first time in one of my shoots. She has been featured in multiple bridal publications and continues to impress with each new project. I totally love this girl and everything she does!
PaperDolls Design - April is a design genius! She did a beautiful outdoor-inspired suite for my first styled shoot a year ago and this time, she's taking inspiration from the beach and our hand painted theme. She sent me a little peek of what she was working on and oh man, you're gonna love it!
Distinctive Event Rentals - This dynamite rental company of Hampton Roads will be joining our team by providing the foundation for all things pretty.
All Washed Up Jewelry - The ladies of All Washed Up make some FABULOUS pieces. Since our shoot is happening by the ocean, they are a perfect addition!
Waterford Event Rentals - The ladies of Waterford have never disappointed me. They are willing to participate, they cheer me on, and they showed interest in getting to know me when I was just starting out. Additionally, if I had to be a tablecloth, I would want to be the one we are using for the sweetheart table. IT IS STUNNING.
Beauty by Sharra - I don't really have much to say about this gal. I mean, I already spend a lot of time on Instagram bragging about how amazing she is. She's becoming an important artist in our wedding community and her talents blow me away every time I see a finished face or head of hair. Besides all that, I've got nothing ;)
Maya Couture - If anything could be labeled a 'dynasty' in this part of the state, it would be House of Maya. I'm positively certain our model will look like a million bucks in her gown....on the beach. [Insert heart eyes]
One Sweet Day in May - Oh, Michelle! Talk about talent! I am not completely flower-challenged, but I can't come anywhere close to this lady! Michelle's business has EXPLODED over the past year and I'm honored she is driving all the way from Richmond to spend some time at the beach with lil' ol' me! :)
Chelsi Cooks - What can I say about Chelsi? This girl has knocked my socks off with her gorgeous and tasty desserts. Even though she's just getting started, Chelsi's cakes have been featured on a number of wedding publications. This girl has a bright (and delicious) future!
Adele Diamond - I absolutely love this jewelry company. Their rings are gorgeous and owner Chris is the nicest guy.
Jennette's Pier - We are going to have AMAZING views from the pier and below. This may be taking place on the ocean, but it won't be your typical beachy theme.
Handsome Biscuit - When I thought about doing a shoot on the ocean, I wanted it to involve sunrise...then I arrived at breakfast. As one of the top restaurants in Hampton Roads, including them was a no-brainer. Look out for biscuit!
Amanda Hedgepeth Photography - This lady has been an inspiration to me for several years now. She photographed my first solo wedding and was there when I had a TON of questions about getting started in the industry. Looking back, I am so thankful she took time out of her schedule to answer my long list of questions. Flash forward to 3 weeks from now, we will be working together again to make all the beautiful things for her workshop attendees.
