We were so excited when Jessica Rios from All Brides 2 Be asked us to plan a styled shoot for the grand opening of her second store Arden Bridal and Boutique. Our models Brooke and Rique were dressed in items Jessica chose from her boutique.
We pulled together 15 vendors in total to contribute their talents to this shoot. The photo shoot actually took place in the store so our challenge was to disguise that as much as possible for the photos with back drops. We used three different backdrops including a greenery wall with a trendy neon sign behind the sweetheart table, gold sequined draping behind the dessert table and velvet draping behind the charcuterie table.
Here's a perfect example of why you need a wedding planner. When our cake baker bailed on us at the last minute, I decided to go with something less traditional and contacted Local Mini Donut Company. They sprung into action and created an adorable donut cake. It was a hit with the vendors and guests attending the open house event. Bakes By The Bay Tampa created a gorgeous "foresty" themed dessert display for us. I actually love when brides decide to go with dessert tables rather than the traditional wedding cake. They offer a wide variety of goodies so there's something to please everyone and are so fun to color coordinate with the theme.
How about that somekin' cocktail? Fierce Vanity Bartending created some really interesting and visually impressive cocktails for our guests. It was like having added entertainment watching her at work.
