bliss celebrations magazine shoot at glen manor with carla ten eyck

Another fun day in the books here with my dream team of creative partners for a double-whammy for Bliss Celebrations Magazine (what a gorgeous publication, if you haven’t laid eyes or hands on it yet, you should give it a gander! FILLED with beautiful real weddings and events and styled shoots for inspiration) We also did this particular styled-shoot with our handsome man models and real life couple David + Anthony for the second book in our White Dress Series called The White Dress: Destinations due out soon that I co-authored with Beth Chapman from The White Dress by The Shore + Beth Chapman Styling and Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events! You can check out our first book The White Dress in Color: inspiration for the modern bride on Barnes and Noble! Another added funĀ little bonus was being able to include my sweet little GG in the shoot for the book, which if I am being honest may or may not be the only reason why I do these books in the first place… so I can include my daughter, and she can see me in my element, working and happy and alive and creative … working with a team that I admire and respect! It’s the stuff that my dreams are made of, and to say that I was able to do this with and for my daughter makes me feel so incredible. Plus the day was so fun, filled with the most gorgeous light and weather and great energy! Thank you to everyone who took the time to make this shoot what it was! XO
