hey courtney

meagan, my amazing intern, made them for the shoot. cut out paper hearts, paint them with glue, sprinkle glitter on both sides, and thread them together with a string. simple and cheap!

The Joe Pye dress is absolutely gorgoues. The ballerina length is just so refreshing on a wedding dress.

Love the dresses! It’s exciting to hear you are partnering with Saja – I already purchased the Blackberry Jam dress for my wedding next spring.

Can anyone tell me what kind of red shoes those are from the Fireflies pictures? They’re beautiful and would be a perfect match with my dress!
