Jenny Evelyn's Bridal Bash

I thought it would be fun to throw a "girls night out" for my brides so that's what I did this past Thursday! A lot of my brides do not live here in Macon, GA where I am located, but I was excited that some of them where able to come! For those were not able to come...we missed you!

My Beautiful Brides!

The brides and Moi!

I did some decorating and my bf Elizabeth came over and helped me a ton! I could not have done it without her! She has such an eye for arranging parties! Thanks Elizabeth you are the best friend! That's her setting up!

We talked weddings, had a photoshoot, and ate yummy wedding food... like cheese straws and danish wedding cookies, oh and cake. Lisa of LisaMae cakes made some amazing petit fours for my party! She even put my birdie on them too.

Ok so, all the brides had to come dressed in an outfit that was inspired by their wedding. The bridesmaid were to also dressed in the bride's wedding theme! Another BIG thanks to Mrs. Gwen for helping me with my floral backdrop for all the photo fun!

Here are Margeaux and Morgan! Black, White, and actually red, but pink was close enough!

Margeaux is marring a Police man and so she showed her support in her lovely earrings!

I am sure you all remember Abby and the pink wall. She is having a pink wedding and here are Abby and Lisa (the MOH)decked out in pink! Love the matching earrings ladies!

Lindsay and Kendra(one of her bridesmaids). You guessed it... her color is green!

Serious Model Poses!

Goofy Pose!

Angel was fab in blue(her accent color).... Yellow is her main color so I made her hold this sunflower! She is really working those eyes!

Poor Heather (Angel's bridesmaid) busted her knee the day of the bash and wasn't able to make it! We missed you! I was the stand in!

Lauren brought one of her bridesmaids Amie and they were decked out in pink! Her colors are pink and orange...I should have made her hold something orange too...but, I guess the orange in the back drop will do!

Jill is marring my cuz Silas this summer and she brought her future sister-in-law and my cousin as well Susanna! Her colors are navy and green with a splash of pink. Her shirt was flannel in honor of Silas who is a man's man.


Oh course I had to have a pic with each bride too!

To see more of our fun night check out this link!
Thanks ladies for all being up for such a fun evening! I hope to throw another one soon!

LisaMae Cakes!

I recently met Lisa and fell in love with her cakes! I am not a big sweets person...but she makes me want cake! She is such an artisan and has a similar out look on her company as I do. Artist first then.... create!
She is so talented and will work with you to create a custom cake for your wedding, party, or event. Did I mention that they taste as amazing as they look. She makes EVERYTHING from scratch and makes as much edible as possible!

Lisa and I got together this past week for a cake photo shoot! It was an honor to photograph her work and help her show her portfolio!

Here are some of the shots!

This first cake was a Martha Stewart inspired cake! I think it looks porcelain.

I LOVE this cake! It's just so happy! Like all artists we are inspired by other's work. Lisa was inspired by Highland Bakery for this lovely cake's design.

Her detail work is impeccable. I like the back of the cake as much as the front!

Some of Lisa's own designs.

Lisa also makes birthday cakes and this wedding cake was inspired by one of her original birthday cakes that actually was the featured centerfold in American Cake Decorating Magazine the Mailbox news division.

This cake was inspired by the bodice of a bride's wedding dress. I cannot believe she was able to recreate it in such a beautiful way!

If you would like to taste some of her cakes, Lisa will be at the Macon Belk Bridal show this Sunday from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. at The Shoppes at River Crossing.

Let her know I sent ya...your taste buds will not be disappointed!

Abby & Brandon's Engagement!

Abby and Brandon are an adorable couple that I had the pleasure to spend the afternoon with a few days ago. Their wedding is quickly approaching and with the lovely weather we have been having what better time then now for their engagement session. The couple met a few years ago when Abby was in college at Valdosta State. They have been together since! Abby is having a "pink wedding" that is not "blush and bashful," but it is going to be lots of pink! So I found the perfect pink wall to start the shoot.

How cute are her shoes?

Even with a pink wall Brandon totally held his own. He is a man's man and I think its so sweet that he was up for anything for his bride to be.

I am always on the look out for green grass... boy did I find a great patch!

Love this one!

The Bling!

She has some sass that I just love! Sometimes its really fun to ham it up for some funny shots!

That's right I found some more pink! Cherry Blossom time is almost here...but since they are not in bloom yet we settled for the painted ones!

I love how this turned out!

The sky was amazing that day too!

In honor of Valentines day...too bad they weren't open.

another cool wall...

Quick wardrobe change and some more cuteness!

This is one of my new favorites! I am always looking for fun new angels!

I have posted a lot of preview photos, but there are so many more to see. If you would like to see all of Abby and Brandon's engagement photos click here.

Thanks so much Abby and Brandon for an awesome shoot! I cannot wait to photograph you two again! I really enjoy working with y'all!
