1 Year Anniversary Shoot

A few weeks ago, the CFO and I got all dressed up and played in fields of corn, and flowers and grass. It was lovely 🙂 Jenna, the very talented lady behind the lens over at Red White and Green Photography, took our pictures to commemorate our 1-year Anniversary. My mom always said she had wished we had taken annual photos as a family while we were all growing up. So, I decided I will start that tradition with our new(est) family. 🙂 And since I have so many amazing photographers that I work with here in CLT–I will do just that! LRT over at Be Pretty dolled me up for the shoot–thanks lady!

Weekly Wrap Up: Internship Week 6

The past few weeks have been filled with lots and lots of planning. Summer weddings are over, so now we are finalizing the details for weddings in the fall, and in serious planning mode for all of the Spring weddings. Katrina has lots of Spring clients, so planning mode is in full force. This is something that I thoroughly enjoy. I love working on each wedding, knowing that they will all be completely different. We are planning weddings on all ends of the spectrum. There is so much more that goes into planning than most people realize. Just deciding the theme is the first step, and from then on, there is so much to pick; from design and detail to cakes and plates. Hopefully, we can get all of the details pinned down on these weddings soon, and start working on the logistics of everything.

Also this past week, we had a photo shoot with Rachel Fesko Photography, the Mint Museum, Lily Greenthumbs, the Ritz-Carlton, The Summerhouse and Party Reflections. The table was covered with pinks and oranges with a modern twist. As always, the Mint was the perfect location (even for a fake wedding)! I always love being there. The HUGE flower arrangement that stood in the center of the table was to die for! I was so excited to take home some of the other little bouquets. Of course, my favorite part was the paper. I have a weird obsession with invitations, place cards, menus, etc. They did such an awesome job with the design, and it fit perfectly with our theme. The models were so wonderful and made the photo shoot look better than it ever could have. I can’t wait to see the photos!!

And to top of a fantastic week, we also accompanied some clients to cake tastings! Need I say more? Wedding cake is something that I am finding myself craving on a regular basis, so this really nipped it in the bud. We visited Wow Factor Cakes and Cake Lady Jill. Both of them had delicious cake–can’t go wrong here!

{Inspired} Mint Museum Uptown Inspiration Shoot

Today will be a fun day. Inspiration day! I love days like today, we get to play. I’m excited to show off the photos from this shoot, in the mean time, here’s a little inspiration behind this very colorful theme! Stay tuned for pictures to come!

Weekly Wrap Up: Internship Week 5

This past week has been full of new things! Last Friday we made it through the 105-degree weather, and made sure Cassie + Matt weren’t sweating over anything! It was a beautiful and entertaining wedding at the Mint Museum Uptown. The gray and yellow was gorgeous. The details were impeccable from a lemonade bar at the ceremony, a thumbprint tree, family photos, and so much more. I just love seeing all of the details pulled together. Their wedding was filled with a wonderful crowd, which was full of energy. It was definitely a night to remember.

We also attended many meetings these past two weeks. I met photographers, such as Critsey Rowe and Project Life Photography, the fabulous Sara Shelor at Party Reflections, and a few possible new brides! Vendor meetings are always interesting because you get to see how each of them goes about business differently. I have learned a lot more from vendors than I ever thought I would.

One event that is coming up is the opening party for Lily Greenthumb’s new studio! This party has been really great to be apart of the planning process because it’s all of the vendors working together and helping each other out. It is going to be a great night to be working, networking and enjoying ourselves all at the same time!

Katrina has recently booked a lot of weddings for the 2013-year. They are all great women and they are all going to have beautiful weddings! I wish I were going to be in Charlotte during their wedding season to see all of these weddings! I can’t wait for pictures!!

And at the end of this week we had an “Inspiration Day”. We spent the day coming up with inspiration boards for all of the new clients! I spent many hours on the internet looking up bouquets, table settings and bridesmaid’s dresses. Who said Pinterest couldn’t be used for work? I wish I would still be working for Katrina when these weddings come around! They are going to be stunning!!

We are more than half way through summer, and working with Katrina has been so much fun. I have learned so much and I am sad that it is going to end! Not only has she taught me so much about the industry, but she has also become a great friend and mentor! She is so fun to be around and always gives me great advice! I was worried about having an internship and babysitting all the time this summer, but Katrina has made work something fun and I am going to be so sad when it’s over! So here’s to my last month in Charlotte- let’s hope it’s a great one!
