When Lesley from The Barn at Rock Creek invited me to participate in a styled shoot, my feet left the floor. I not only adore the team there for their creativity but flexibility and level of professionalism. As she described the goal and the team of vendors she had arranged my heart started beating even faster. If "Relaxed Elegance" isn't a "thing" yet...it is now. So many brides ache for a blend of artistry that isn't too stuffy, a celebration that says "This is kind of a big deal" and "Relax, have fun." Celebrate the two of you deciding to spend a life together, share it with your friends and family! Oh, and if delicious tones of golds, pinks and corals and intentionally mismatched decor happen to abound? Even better my friends. Want to know the people that collaborated? The hardworking team of Barn at Rock Creek, Party Suppliers and Rentals for linens, The Confectionary, (cake devoured by mad-crazy-beautiful models post shoot). Designs by Amber Lanier for florals and overall "I will sink my teeth in to this party" feel, Coastal Knot for the gowns and accessories. Handsome model men dressed by Men's Wearhouse. All that beautiful hair and gorgeous makeup? Check out Emily Rodriguez of Ward Hair and Nail and Adrianne Lugo Professional Hair and Makeup. That wicked goldish-champagne ride? Thanks Azalea Limousine. Let's play again soon!
