The first styled shoot that I designed and styled was published yesterday on @baltimoreweds! I have wanted to do this for so long, but I always thought I wasn't allowed. I'm not a wedding planner. But, then I realized that I am an artist, I am a creative. So why can't I creatively direct a shoot or an event? .
So I started designing this cotton candy skies themed shoot! I knew that I wanted it to be super light, yet colorful. Airy yet bright. I wanted it to feel like you were at the fair on a summer day and you just got a big old stick of cotton candy. I wanted it to feel like you were sitting on the front porch as the sun was setting and you looked up to see a cotton candy sky. I also wanted it to be super art heavy. So I made more pieces for this shoot than I ever have before, including a large 34x48 inch painting on canvas. With @mythandmoss making some fiber clouds, it really added to the painting and made it feel more like an art installation. .
I am so grateful for every vendor that helped execute my vision. I gave them a basic outline of what I wanted but I wanted to make sure everyone had some creative freedom and they all brought their best. Seriously I am so blown away. If you need anyone to help design a wedding or event, I am dying to do more more and more! .

God it feels so damn good to be able to do all of this on my own. Cuz Lord knows running a whole business, working a 9-5, and balancing a life BY YOURSELF is not an easy thing. I’m tired ALL THE TIME but the feeling right now is.... REGAL. I feel so empowered you guys. I Cannot Wait for y’all to see this insanityyyy 😱♥️♥️ #GIRLBOSS
Many couples say that the the ceremony is the most blurry and surreal part of their wedding day ✨
I remember how bizarre it felt to see all those faces beaming at us. So strange and wonderful. And how wildly happy and in awe I felt as we spoke our vows. It was a big promise and I couldn't stop smiling and laughing 😭💛
If you're married, what's in your memory from your ceremony? 👀

We’ve lived in this apartment for three years now and it’s been a joy but are we ready for a new adventure. ✨Taken while second shooting for the greatest @nicolebabcockphotography!
