We are so excited to have been featured on Grey Likes Weddings (a gorgeous blog we have long loved and followed)!  We were asked by Christina Richardson of SCV Makeup Artist to collaborate with a group of talented women for a 1940's Hollywood wedding photo shoot, with, shall we say, a little twist.

Christina, along with Samantha Santana of Primary Petals, dreamed up  the Beauty vs. Beast theme.  So Hollywood meets The Woods, as in swarming-with-critters-woods.  Yes, with a twist, but under the incredibly talented direction of Christina and Samantha, a gorgeous shoot unfolded!

We met these ladies through Creative Connection LA, and we are consistently amazed at their talent and vision.  We are planning on posting about Creative Connection LA soon, but in the meantime, check it out on Facebook.  Talk about inspiration!  The talent represented at these meet-ups is no joke!

Can you believe these gorgeous flowers?  And we're not big fans of snakes, but what girl doesn't love a little snakeskin purse or shoe now and then?  So a snakeskin wrapped bouquet doesn't seem so far-fetched after all!

Vintage plates were the perfect showcase for our name cards, double backed with ebony and burnt sugar cardstock, and the menu, backed with ebony and slate gray.

Isn't this fun?!  We are so pleased and impressed with how everything came out!  We want to give our thanks to Christina and Samantha for inviting us to be involved with this shoot (our very first!) and to all the incredibly creative women who pooled their talents to bring their vision to life:
