{STYLED SHOOT} Unholy Matrimony

I must say this is by far I think the most badass shoot we have ever designed + styled. I cannot in the least take credit for all of this because this was an amazing collaboration between Adrienna, myself + our freaking awesome and super creative interns, Alison Uzmann + Shelby Bittinger!!!! This shoot honestly started as a rockabilly shoot that my friend Rachel Thomas was to be modeling in + one day while crafting in the boutique we were talking about wanting to not do rockabilly but something dark and different. And with that a shoot with a theme loosely described as "weird animals, dead skulls, badass, rock and roll, and funky" was born + seriously huge thank you to Rach Lea for being down to photograph this without having even a clue what we were up to and also to Sean McNally at Cinemobius for capturing this shoot on video!!!

And with that we scrounged around town for the coolest skulls + decor pieces and were super pumped when Graveface Records + Curiosities and Paris Market were willing to lend us some awesome nick nacks, such as a taxidermy fox, lots of skulls, cool animal coffee mugs... And Alison even searched her parent's house for some funky elements and brought us awesome small glass vases in deep shades of purples + reds and some more skulls. Alison + Adrienna put together the florals using lots of funky floral pieces such as purple leaves and twigs. All these weird funky pieces sat atop a table linen made out of spanish moss. Each place setting included DIY plates by us with silverware from Paris Market. For our bride, Rachel, we knew we wanted her in something funky and the asymmetrical hem dress by Faith Thornburg was perfect with one of our Twigs & Honey veils. Her faux hawk with brides was done by Milan Day Spa and her makeup by Lindsey Wirht-Jones. Simon's Formal Wear dressed up our groom, Alex, in suspenders, a top hat + bow tie... his dog even got a bow tie too. Snake did not get any attire though... we figured it was cool err scary enough by itself? Hmm... anyways. Lulu's Chocolate Bar made an AMAZING naked chocolate cake that was so ridiculously delicious I can't even describe this cake in words. Think chocolate + blackberries + goodness + heaven + oh my gosh can I eat cake from Lulu's Chocolate Bar every single day? But seriously. Our intern, Shelby, designed the awesome invitations with the fox + fox butt... and my favorite, those fox masks. And to answer the question I know you are dying to ask... yes, we listened to What Does the Fox Say during this photo shoot. Thanks again everyone!!!!!!
