a wedding day & grapefruit 3-ways

I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with local wedding planner Shannon Schultz of Shannon Schultz Events and local photographer Sara Donaldson with food and drink for a gorgeous French Ballet-inspired wedding photo shoot.

Also a part of the shoot was friend and calligrapher Lauren Essl of Blue Eye Brown Eye who hand-constructed the most beautiful calligraphy work to grace the shoot.

Let me just tell you...

These gals are intensively creative, dynamic and talented beyond belief. The breath-taking pictures definitely reflect this.

This was my first time collaborating for a photo shoot of this sort and we had a blast in the July Texas heat! Below are a sampling of pics from the Style Me Pretty blog post featuring the shoot.

All beautiful photos are courtesy of Sara Donaldson.

Gorgeous calligraphy à la Lauren Essl.

Vanilla Cupcakes with Grapefruit Cream Cheese Frosting

Rustic Grapefruit Tarts with Turbinado Sugar

Champagne & Grapefruit Cocktails with Thyme Syrup

What an ingenious cocktail "table"-- an antique drum!

Dainty ice cubes with edible flowers--
a delight to shoot in this Texas heat :)

I loved being a part of this lovely collaboration!
