Ceremony Choices // The Providence Cotton Mill

This styled shoot was the absolute best way to kick off July and the start of being able to come out of quarantine! I got to work with Jenna of Seeded Events & Design, Caitlin of Honey Thyme Events, Maria McFadyen Photography and the gorgeous models Deanna and her fiance PJ. They were all so nice and so much fun. I loved getting advice from Jenna, Caitlin and Maria about the wedding industry and how to grow my business. I look forward to working with them again in the future. Deanna made my job as a hair and makeup artist so easy because she is STUNNING and so incredibly sweet. We did cooler tones for the eyes with ultra glam lashes and some Stila glitter shadow as the highlight, since the theme was celestial and Jenna and Caitlin wanted something a bit more dramatic to fit that. Deanna got dressed and she was beautiful! The dress sparkled so beautifully and complimented her skin tone amazingly! I also discovered that Deanna's fiance PJ creates custom tailored suits and provided his own for the styled shoot. You guys know since I am also a clothing designer we talked forever about it. I was so impressed that he is completely self taught, because it is not easy to teach yourself clothing design folks! When PJ got dressed, I am not lying when I say that it is the best fitted suit I have ever seen on someone period. It literally looked like second skin, tailored perfectly and dapper looking.  Once the models were dressed it was time for Maria to do what she does best and take amazing photos. You will see below, she did such a great job, they are all so beautiful! Music is very important to Deanna and PJ so Caitlin put some of their favorite songs on and they danced the whole photo shoot. It was so fun to watch and I can't wait to see photos of their actual wedding day this coming September of them dancing some more. I hope you have as much fun looking at these photos as we did getting to create them. If you are in need of any vendors for your wedding day please please please make sure to contact Jenna, Caitlin, Maria and PJ, you won't regret it! As always vendor list is below.
