Last night's stylized session was a dream come true! A few months ago my wildly talented photographer friend Kim (of The Big Day) and I were catching up at Whibey Coffee, and a vision of collaborating on a Roman inspired wedding shoot began to evolve. We imagined the rocky cliffs of Rosario Beach and a beautiful bride in a gorgeous flowing gown standing upon the rocks at sunset...but we knew we'd need to help to bring this idea to life. There is so much talent in the wedding industry here in the PNW, and we soon connected with Petra, event designer and coordinator extraordinaire at Beaufort Events, to help bring this thought to reality. Lead by her incredible vision, we soon networked with other amazing professionals who all added their beautiful touches and details to create this luscious and rich roman inspired feast. With grapes, chalices, brie, figs, wine and gorgeous florals by Leah Erickson adorning the table settings provided by Balancing Balloons, we watched the sunset over the rocks of Rosario where two crazy in-love couples made us swoon behind the camera. The deep reds and golds just burned warmth against an amazing twilight session, and once the sun went down, all who participated celebrated and toasted the evening with wine, cheese and fruit around the most beautiful table setting. What a way to end a perfect session! A HUGE thank you to ALL who made this shoot happen! To get in touch, check out their websites below!
