Red Carpet Ready: My Top 10 Red Carpet Picks

 It’s finally here, my red carpet picks! Did your favorite make the cut?    This simple purple gown was perfect on Tina, she looked classic, timeless and elegant.
 Maria’s gown was radiating with old Hollywood glamour. 

 I loved this gown! Those colors were amazing, she looked like a giant piece of jewelry. 

 I absolutely loved the 3-D effect that Cate’s dress had. It was simply beautiful.

  One of my favorites because of the simplicity of the gown. Go Jen!
 Okay, pants Gaga…yes girl! Work it!

  This was gorgeous coming and going, now only if she could have taken a photo with Ryan!
 SLAY Chrissy, girl you worked a maternity red carpet gown like it was your job.

 My #1 for good reason, I couldn’t take my eyes off this gown. pri- girl you worked it!

A Modern Vintage Styled Shoot

Antiques, exposed brick and raw, natural beauty were the inspiration for my Modern Vintage Shoot. Lace dresses and fluffy tulle skirts were the perfect pairing and gowns came pouring in from Kleinfeld Bridal, Concord Wedding Center, Matthew Christopher and Kimberly Pixton Couture.

The City Club, a local venue here in Concord, NC was the first stop in our photo shoot. The approximate capacity is around 600-1000 and this venue is simply beautiful. I am a huge fan of exposed brick, and this venue was simply stunning.


Items shown in the City Club Images are as follows:
-Allure Bridals “9051
(This dress can be found locally at Concord Wedding Center)
-Tuxedo from Jim’s Formal Wear at Concord Wedding Center
-Bouquet by Linda Gibson

The next location we shot at was an old warehouse. It’s chippy paint and exposed brick were a charming touch that was so perfectly contrasted with the gowns.

The Depot is a “pickers paradise” when it comes to all things antique, old, and shabby chic- a perfect setting for my shoot. I found a diamond in the rough when deciding to set one of the locations at The Depot at Gibson Mill.
