We were invited to attend the BHLDN launch party in Chicago, and who did we rub elbows with but the AMAZING, FABULOUS, TALENTED and extremely HUMBLE AND GRACIOUS Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings. This photo may or may not have been put under my pillow. Sigh. ;) Thanks again, BHLDN. We had a blast - and definitely plan to post more pics from the party as soon as we play a little catch up!
In honor of V-day week (ok, I’m probably just using the timing as an excuse), I’m posting about this amazing project, which photographs couples who have been married for 50+ years - cuz seriously, how cute are they?! :) This really should be a documentary…
preliminary photos from the design we created especially for the wedding party v2.0 is now up on abby rose photo’s facebook page. check it out and stay tuned for so many more. thanks for coming, everyone. we had a blast and hope you did too! until next year!
Currently freaking out over this Two Penny film. Kinda unbelievable, especially right around the 2:59 mark. What amazing work - and what an incredible wedding! (as always, click ‘permalink’ if you’d like to view it in full size.)
Did you know when you are researching a sunset time, there is actually 20-30 minutes you should be adding to that time to account for civil twilight? Yes it’s true, while the sun itself does set, it does not actually get dark just yet. So if you’re planning for the sky to go black at a certain time (let’s say you want to completely change the scene with amazing lighting, perhaps during a ceremony RIGHT when you are announced as husband and wife, or during an outdoor reception when you have your first dance or cut the cake), keep this in mind! Not only is this a solid tool you can use to prevent logistical mishaps (eek, can you imagine what would happen if it went dark during your ceremony and you HAD no lighting?!), it can also really help you time your day out to enhance those special and magical moments, making it even more memorable for you and for your guests. Because seriously, when the night begins to fall and the ceiling of a tent lights up with twinkle lights right as your guests sit down for dinner (for example), those are the kinds of experiences your guests will never forget.
