What does it take to get a published feature on a nationally known wedding blog? A lot of hard work, an "A" team of vendors, and some jaw dropping images that you just can't look away from!
Before all the pretty images come to the surface A LOT of unglamorous (is that a word?) work happens behind the scenes, in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the shoot. Here is just a glimpse of our little world and the behind the scenes action!
First: We road trip to the location! New Hampshire here we come! As many of you know Mary & Ed are on site day to day, and Samantha is very much behind the scenes answering calls, composing contracts, creating and executing marketing material, and ensuring that photo shoots go off without a hitch! Banks (2) and Penn (6months) were along for the 23 hour ride!
Next, we prepped photo shoot props and styled rooms. No pillow was left unfluffed, no bed skirt was left untouched.
Model prep, photographers on site, we are ready to roll! Oh and yes those are two babies on the living room couch enjoying Sesame Street & munching on what I'm sure are sugar filled snacks while mom works! Real life folks!
And the styling begins...
Some outside shots from the day. Every single one of the vendors involved braved the frigid temperatures to capture just the perfect shot!
And the final product...
We hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek behind the scenes of a styled shoot. All of the fantastic vendors are listed blow and you can find the post from Cake & Lace here.
