Last weekend I got to be a counterfeit bride who was eloping in the woods! I very much enjoyed my fake husband since it is my real life boo. The shoot happened to be during an ultra marathon & I was stunned by two things.
1. How many people signed up for an ultramarathon on purpose
2. I was stunned by how many people stopped what they were doing just to congratulate us!
I Hope y'all make some time to spread some love this weekend too!
Thanks to the amazing squad for making the shoot so fun:
the creative beauty @katiesalerno is a powerhouse of talent, wit and humor. Such a joy working with her! Book her for any elopements, weddings, engagements, um anything. She captures big and small moments so, beautifully.
DRESS: Fit like a glove and was so comfy! You can find it @litboutique They are all over Boston and I am so happy Katie introduced me to them!. They got cute AF stuff & I loved working with their team over there. If you are in need of holiday party/ NYE dress, certainly stop in. I went to their Hanover St location conveniently across from @modernpastry which was a perfect excuse to stop in for a chocolate dipped cannoli. Obv important to note nearby snacks.
SUIT: Hugo Boss. Pocket square and tie clip purchased at Nordstrom
HAIR // my homegirl@victoriajennifer6845. She helped me go natural and we celebrated our one year together. That is a big deal for me and hair dressers. Natural hair gyals in Boston I can't recommend her enough. Look at my hair in these pictures! All me! #growth
MAKEUP// I did it myself but huge shouts to @beccacosmetics. love their foundation. feels like a tinted moisturizer but offers full coverage. ACTUAL coverage and you don't even need concealer! Try it now and you are welcome! It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way so it will certainly last and you can even mix with a light moisturizer to spread as well. Bonus they are paraben & sulphate free and do not test on animals. Love to love them.
FLOWERS// : @fieldandvase. a week later they are still blooming! I can't wait for my next bouquet and might need one of her flower crowns too.
faux fur was borrowed from a friend & earrings were Sugarfix, aka Target meets Bauble Bar. Huge selection at Target Fenway location.
Well there you have it. I get to be a fake bride again next month but it will be a more traditional shoot ! Looking forward to starting that mood board while being snowed in this Saturday. And of course looking forward to trolling friends and family with more photos.
Hope the last month of the year is good to you!
