I had the idea to put together a tea party because one, tea parties are adorable and two, I could get professional images of several gals at once.
Since meeting at the start of last year, I wanted badly to work with Jen Vazquez. I felt immediately comfortable with her. When I approached her with the idea, she was sold without questions. She added to the concept by making it about the bride proposing to her gals. What a cute idea! She coached me through some of the process, and together we gathered a fabulous team!
The true glue and team all star was Kayli from Crush Co. She took our idea and made it sparkle. I was absolutely blown away with her attention to detail. Not to mention that she is as big an Anthropologie fan as I am!
For me, what set this shoot apart from others, was our clothing designer, Stephanie of Taste Studio. Each piece was meticulously hand made and oh so fitting- pun intended! You could see how fabulous the girls felt in their frocks.
The shoot came to life with each of our other vendors as the layers and icing to a fabulous cake! Isabel Jackson Beauty worked along side me on hair. Salt and Honey baked up the beautiful and delicious tastes. Seascape Flowers provided the lovely floral. Katie Kubitz was the fabulous creative behind the calligraphy. One True Love Vintage and Abbey Party Rents SF furnished our tea party. Mod Mix Studio and Mod Mix Studio adorned the tables with linen. Tea Cups to Candles filled our gift box with her creations. And I honestly could not have stood upright without the assistance of Megan Donovan on two of the models.
Last but not least, the always beautiful Fitz Place graciously hosted us and set the scene for the most beautiful shoot.
