This all began with a dress.
This dress actually, a ridiculously adorable rainbow mini. I mean, I love minis. I got married in a mini!
But a group of vendor friends and I ended up basing a whole photoshoot, just around this dress. I had been looking for a reason to buy it but common sense alway prevailed. I kept having the internal argument about what could I possible need it for. Mardi Gras was the closest answer I could come up with.
But the photoshoot we came up with was AMAZING.
We couldn't come up with the perfect spot to do it, we really just wanted great lighting and a white background, basically so it wouldn't compete with all the colors we had going on. The perfect spot ended up being Felicity Church in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans.
Besttttt lighting ever.
Our friend Michelle, of Michelle Norwood Events, directed everything, and the whole thing basically turned into a total Barbie's Dream House vibe (love).
My favorite part was the amazing custom built rainbow backdrop created by Lauren at Lovegood Rentals. It was the perfect piece to bring it all together.
For the backdrop, I thought color blocking would stand out the most. So we did a couple groupings of pink, purple, yellow and mix and attached them to Lovegood's wall.
Rainbow Color Blocking...
We then flipped the space to be a pretend ceremony spot, complete with color blocked pedestals and lounge seating for ceremony chairs.
I'm sure my husband would disagree but I wish our living room looked like this.
We also set up a dining table for detail shots. I love when we get to do table settings, I just think having all your plates, linens and glassware set up looks incredible.
We lined up these little pastel floral cuties to accent Little Bushel Catering's plates, glasses and flatware. All the gold really tied it all together.
I was obsessed with how everything turned out, I loved the unique take on a typical wedding aesthetic.
