PHEW! Is all I can say. I mean to prepare for this shoot literally took the life out of me! It was such a project, but oh what a satisfying one! We worked for WEEKS on these table tops. It was a beautiful collaboration with Floral Designs by Cindy, The Cloth Connection, Party Rentals, ltd, The Pleasantdale Chateau, Laura
Hooper Calligraphy and of course Danny Weiss Photography.
Cindy and I carefully chose the most gorgeous *table jewlery* from Party Rentals, to coordinate perfectly with all the amazing custom made (just for the shoot!) couture linens from Cloth Connection. A big HUGE thank you to Helen and co. for the amazing hustle. After that, Cindy ran with our ideas for both table tops. Well, what can I say? As usualy she BLEW us all away. Even after a freezer mishap on Monday she still pulled it all together seamlessly.
Lisa from Pleasantdale was gracious in allowing us to shoot our session at their gorgeous estate in West Orange, NJ, thank you for the wonderful backdrop and the amazing service on Wednesday from lighting the fire to helping move furniture, we appreciate your help. Laura Hooper created gorgeous hand written menus for our "rockefellar" shoot, they looked priceless!
Danny Weiss as usual was there to capture the images for the submission, we can't wait to see the pictures. These are just a few sneak peeks but I'm sorry you will have to wait until the magazine comes out to see the full images! Top secret!
Thanks again to GG and Amy who were also instrumental in the process and on the day of to help scramble everything together and make it perfect!
