A Ballerina Bride Photo Shoot!!!

Photos by Lisa Brown - Bella Rose Photography

There is romantic,
and then there is Romantic!
And a Ballerina Bride is the stuff of young girls dreams!
So when we Divas and our Bella Rose
put our heads together to do a photo shoot...

Our model "Bride" is really a professional ballerina!
The vision for the Floral & Event Design for staging the shoot
began with our love for Cary Grant & Grace Kelly!!! ;););)
 So we designed this shoot with a thematic nod to
Grace Kelly in "To Catch A Thief" -
think Grace Kelly en pointe!!!

Location! Location! Location!
We may not be in the French Riviera,
 but you can hardly get more romantic than a grassy lawn,
beneath ancient Live Oaks, and 
set against the backdrop of the Intracoastal Waterway!!!

And to complete the staging,
we designed this theatrical Wedding Cake,
decorated with a magnificent white peacock
 we created from sugarpaste!

With the stage now set, we were ready to
let Lisa loose with her camera
to work her magic!!!

Like in "To Catch A Thief,"
our shoot ended with fireworks
(well, at least, sparklers!!! ;););)


And here are some of our "Behind the Scene" photos
 of the "reality" behind these gorgeous images!!!...

We were able to order these magnificent roses
from Ecuador!  They were so beautifully
perfect they don't look real in the photos!!!

To set up a shoot like this takes moving
a truck load of things... thank you Paula Corbett for letting us
invade your back yard for the day (& evening!!!)
(Deborah & Paula - The Bridesmaids!!!) 

Stage set!!!...

Bride dressed...
(a Diva request - apply more lipstick!!!)

 It is, as Lisa calls it, the "magic hour"...

...and the shoot begins!!!

Ever wonder how photographers get those fabulous shots?...
...Very carefully!!! ;););)

Deborah and Jan of aMuse

To style our Grace Kelly-esque Bride,
our first stop was to see Jan of aMuse
for the perfect vintage jewelry!
(Remember Grace sitting on the sofa
tempting Cary with her necklace,
fireworks exploding in the background - sigh!)
Jan you nailed it!!!

For seeing all the details,
any of these beautiful photos can be
enlarged on your screen
by simply "hitting" the image!
