styled shoot {backyard bachelorette luncheon}

If you’ve been reading for awhile, you will know that I’ve had my hands in a few collaborative projects during the past six months. In February, it was the Vintage Valentines inspired shoot which was featured on Style Me Pretty. Later that month I did the Shabby Sleek shoot for Nonpareil Magazine. In May I did another shoot for Nonpareil, in the form of a Marie Antoinette DIY dessert buffet.

When July rounded the bend, and it was time for another such project, this time a 1950′s inspired backyard luncheon. I teamed up with my fave photographer again, Emily Steffen, and three other amazingly talented ladies–Rachel Johnson, Dena Swenson and Maren Dalida. Together we dreamed up a backyard bachelorette luncheon with a retro twist. I styled, Emily shot, and Rachel, Dena and Maren coordinated food, papergoods, wardrobe and all the little details. It was a beautiful summer day, and we had a blast being creative together!







The icing on the cake is that our little luncheon was featured on Wedding Chicks! Check it out, and if you’re itching to see more photos, click on over to Emily’s blog.
