When Grace, of Lee-Lim, asked me to be a part of her unique look book shoot she had been dreaming of, I couldn't say no! Have you seen Grace's gowns? They are beyond incredible and beautifully crafted. If you are in bride in need of a gown, contact her immediately!
The shoot took place on the shores of Lake Michigan on an extremely hot summer day. The day included a lot of running in the sand (what a work out!) and quick changes for our female model. I'm not exactly sure how many gowns we used that day, but you will see in the photos below that she made a lot of changes. The gowns range from short, cocktail length, to long and lacy.
For the flowers, I wanted to play off the location - soft sandy colors with a hint of blue-ish / purple for the ombre sky. I included flowers like anemones, garden roses, blackberry branches, artichokes and more. I really liked how the bouquet and centerpiece turned out!
We were also lucky enough to have this shoot featured on Grey Likes Weddings a couple months back. If you missed it, definitely take a look!
**Fun fact (believe it or not!) -- Grace's husband stood behind that awesome wallpaper backdrop the entire time. What a trooper!
