Black is the new White

A few months back, I was given the great opportunity to collaborate...and by collaborate, I mean, just say, "Uh, Yes please!!!" to everything my friend Kristi from Kristi Lee Photography was coming up with for a styled shoot at the Peoria Civic Center. 

She and Janice from Adore Bridal had decided to do a shoot of a BLACK WEDDING DRESS.  
Yep, that's right...BLACK.  

I have to be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first...that is, until I saw it and then I was like, "Shut up.  No seriously...like, SHUUUUUT UUUUP."

Both Kristi and I shot during this session...and if you'd like to see more images from her view...click HERE!  

 My one job was to find the model...and immediately, I knew I wanted my friend Sadie.  And to say she rocked it out doesn't touch it.  No, seriously...I think even I got sick of hearing myself say, "OH MY WORD!!!" 'cause I was literally dying...I'd gather myself together and then I'd die again.
 The amazing flowers were from LeFleur on the Square
 You gave me everything and more that I'd ask from you, Sades...just look at you.  Girl...seriously.
At the end of the evening we did a quick switch to what I kept calling the Audrey Hepburn look...
 Okay. So as I was picking my jaw off the floor with how much I loved shooting the black dress, I was doing everything not to want to wear this one...I was giddy over how much I loved this dress...
Simple. Chic. Perfect.
 It was the perfect combination of feminine, timeless, and fashion...love. 

A HUGE thanks to: 
Kristi for including me in this project and letting me shoot along side you!
Janice, you and Adore Bridal brought it...literally...with the dresses and styling!
LeFleur on the Square for you creative work with the florals you provided...such a fun pop to the shoot!
And a big thanks to my Sadie-lady who did such an amazing job showcasing the dresses and flowers for us!! You were amazing...times a thousand...and one. :)

OMG, that dress! I am dying to shoot a black wedding dress! And that shot of her standing on the window sill, I die! But my favorite part of this post, is that I can totally hear you saying, 'Oh My Word', haha. I love that you say that in real life! :)
