If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you've probably seen us posting tons of sneak peeks of our pirate-chic styled shoot with Formal Affairs and Melissa McCrotty! It was sort of everything, and we're sooo thrilled with how everything turned out. The details were incredible, the gowns were arrrr-mazing (see what I did there?!), the models were GORGEOUS... It was a long, crazy day, but it was worth every bit of work put in by everyone involved! Seriously, one of the most beautiful shoots EVER. Melissa's senior models were a huge part of the shoot, and they wore the most gorgeous formal dresses from Formal Affairs, one of our favorite vendors ever.
One of our favorite parts of the shoot was the Pirate Bride portion. The shoot was styled by Lesleigh Smith, the founder and creative director at The Barn, and she said her inspiration for this portion of the shoot was "as if Jack Sparrow had a bride." Our Pirate Bride was on a pretty little rustic chic pirate ship, which was decked out with gorgeous florals, a gold candelabra and a whiskey barrel. She wore a pirate chic bridal gown (that is totally a thing!), pirate booty (aka jewelry), and the most gorgeous headpiece. And our team couldn't have pulled it off without the most talented vendors around!
