Chicago Style Weddings Designer's Challenge - The Words That Shape Us
YOU GUYS!! I am so excited to announce our feature in Chicago Style Weddings Magazine’s 2019 Designer’s Challenge!
This shoot has been a concept of mine for over a year & I’m so excited to be able to show you the photos & tell you the story behind it!
In early 2018, I did a consultation with the sweetest couple who had a vision for their wedding where they merged their love of literature and the city where they fell in love, Paris, in the details of their wedding. Their anchoring phrase: The Words That Shape Us. Ultimately, we didn’t end up working together but our conversation & their love story left me so charged with vision, that I knew I had to get it out somehow. Over a year later, I had the opportunity to partner up with a group of ridiculously talented creative partners for the Designer’s Challenge & I knew it was time to execute this dream.
As you can imagine, over 18 months, I had the space to really get to know this fictional couple I was designing this shoot around. This couple was backpacking through Europe with their best friends & after an electric night in Paris, they found themselves hand in hand in a field of Tulips at dawn committing to spend their lives together. After exchanging their vows, they went to a local cafe to celebrate.
I had so much fun dreaming up a portion of this “couple’s” love story & hope you love it as much as I do! If you find yourself doing a double tap, PLEASE don’t forget to vote HERE!
A huge thank you to all of our creative partners:
