It's safe to say I am in love with everything about this shoot. I love that it uses my favorite plates, I love the colors, I love the florals, I love the concept and I LOVE the vendor team. If I went any further it would just get sappy so I'll stop and trust that you'll head over to Style Me Pretty Living to check out the feature. You may recognize some of DFW's most popular fashion bloggers, Katey McFarlan and Accessory Jane... that is, if you aren't distracted by the gorgeous colors that Silver Lining Events + Co put together or the delicious healthy food from Kara Stout.
Last month PLP once again took part in The Big Fake Wedding. If you're never heard of it, it's basically a bridal show, done as an actual wedding. You play a guest, and witness an actual married couple renew their vows. Their attendants are their real friends and family, but everyone involved is a wedding vendor of some kind. It's super fun and personally, WAY more interesting than walking around the Will Rogers Exhibit Hall carrying a cheap reusable tote with your eyes glazed over. At The Big Fake Wedding the only reason your eyes should be glazed over is because you danced your pants off and had one too many glasses of champs.
This year's BFW was hosted by Marie Gabrielle, which is my absolute favorite hidden gem of Dallas. It's like a secret garden right in the middle of the city and it's amazing. The food was fabulous, the music was on point and we had a ton of fun. Today the event was featured on Ruffled, so be sure to head over and see the photos.
Oh look.. it's Mr. PLP and my BFB. I make Mr. PLP wear a bow tie to anything that could even remotely turn into a dance party. If I see him ride the pony or put a tie around his head one more time, so help me y'all. The bow tie is safer.
When Ashley and Evelyn, from Wildflower Weddings and Events, came to pick out plates for their shoot I was so happy when they chose a few patterns that don't often get showcased. They really took the time to search and it was fun to go through the stacks with them. I love the simplicity of this table setting for two, and those fab blue coupes... not mine! Those belonged to Evelyn's grandmother and I am oh so jealous of them. I love Smitten Magazine so seeing this shoot on their blog was a sweet surprise.
Let's take it way back to last Spring. I loved this shoot because firstly, someone brought doughnuts and I was pregnant, but secondly, because it was the first shoot that used some of my neutral plates. These plates had really gone under appreciated by me until this shoot, and now they are in my group of favorites. I love the simple beauty of the scalloped edges. This shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks, so go check out Courtnee Murphy's beautiful photographs and some of my favorite vendors.
