Nautical Inspired

It seems like it was just yesterday I was walking in the RSVP offices to discuss the Wedding Issue of the Magazine.  It released a few weeks back and has literally flown off newsstands here in town. This is one of my FAVORITE issues to work on with the girls. But of course weddings make us happy over here at Evan and Company.

This issue is packed with so much pretty it’s insane! Some of our favorite features include the Bridesmaid Diaries, Real Weddings, and The Gift Guide. But We’re a little partial to our 2 page Nautical Themed, Mock Wedding that was featured.

I remember going back and forth with Aubrie on what style wedding we were going to shoot. Literally hundreds of texts later we finally decided on the Nautical Theme. It was something that was fresh, new and different to the “Montgomery Bride”. I was away in Colorado at the time and I knew that I needed to call in re-enforcements. I had SO MUCH on my plate that it would’ve be nice to an extra set of hands and another creative brain–who better to call then my fantastic friend Rae of LeRae Events + Design. Putting us together was trouble, trouble, trouble. We couldn’t stop– EVERY LITTLE DETAIL. We wanted it to be perfect! We’re wedding designers, would you expect anything less?

Every time I prep for a shoot I go into it thinking that I am much more organized than the last, and every time I learn I AM NOT. Rae and I were literally busting our tails on shoot day. We had people running everywhere. Tables, chairs, china, flowers, cakes, food, bridesmaids, hair and makeup people, you name it—we had it. It was seriously like a real wedding, just less pressure. Well, in a sense.

After it was all said and done, we managed to pull it off. I couldn’t be happier with the images. They are perfect– can’t wait to add them to the site.  Thanks again to everyone who made this shoot happen. We had a HUGE team and again, we couldn’t have done it without you.  Big shout out toe Timmy, Michael and Hillary for hanging in there with us all day.

Our boat paddle “guest book”. Isn’t this a GREAT alternative to those yucky traditional guest books?  2013-05-31_011 2013-05-31_007

His and Her chair signage is super popular these days so we wanted to tie in our nautical theme.  2013-05-31_003
