I've Been Up to Something

Oh I've been busy-sorry to have been away. I recently worked again with two fabulous girls-Brea McDonald and Sara Fitzgerald-O'Brien to complete a wedding theme we had started back in June. We had some interest from a wedding magazine editor and needed to create the rest of the wedding story to photograph, before the season changes completely! These are just my snapshots, Brea's photos will be much more delish, but I wanted to share. We created a hand made dessert table, complete with scrumptious strawberry desserts provided by 111 Maine. We only had 4 days notice that this shoot was going to take place, so I had to whip up a bouquet myself-hard to make September look like June! As usual, I scavenged some of my vintage finds, old coolers, metal boxes, family quilts and collected pie pedestals to work into the theme. These lemon squares are quite possibly the best I have ever eaten. Ever. And I have eaten my fair share! The magazine editor wanted a little girl in a red gingham 4 days, I had to make my own dress and employ my daughter to be in the shoot at the kid's table. I didn't have a pattern, just made this by cutting out freely and hoping for the best...we shall see how it worked in the pictures, I will post some when Brea's are available.
I made an assortment of paper pinwheels, originally to line the ceremony aisle, but we opted not to shoot that scene, and instead, pushed the pinwheels into the ground around the kid's table-so cute!
There are so many other things going on here, I haven't even made the time to get the pictures into the computer to share...just suffice it to say that what is coming next will be a feast for your eyes, and will give you a peek into what our lives have been consumed by for the past year! Stay tuned...
