If you haven’t noticed on my Instagram feed or stories lately, I’ve been majorly obsessing over all things copper! So…it shouldn’t be a surprise that I planned an entire styled shoot in downtown Dallas around it! I teamed up with some awesome Dallas vendors to kick off the 2018 Summer wedding season. It was perhaps the hottest May morning in all of history, but we powered through, chugged water constantly and applied sunscreen like you’ve never seen it applied. Take a peek and get ready for some beauty & copper overload captured by my girl and fellow #bossbabe, Madison Katlin!
Ah! Summer at last! Doesn’t this invitation suite give you all the summer vibes?! Jessica with Dabbling in Dallas worked her magic and delivered 150%. What a wonderful talent with the sweetest personality. Love finding & working with new vendors in Dallas!
I was not kidding about my obsession with copper accents! This photo screams it loud and clear! These three items are staple copper pieces in my collection of décor and I purposefully built the theme around these three pieces. I went into the planning & design of this shoot knowing we would be on a rooftop that had a lot of natural wood, so I wanted to have statement furniture and accents that would pop! The copper side table is Project 62 from Target. The vase and wine bowl are Mark & Graham. Easily my three favorite copper pieces in my personal collection and I use them constantly! Worth the investment tenfold.
Is this smile infectious or what!? Sydney was such a joy to work with, her spirit is just as bright as her smile. We definitely didn’t lack in fun and laughter at this shoot! Becca with BA Beauty delivered hair & makeup magic, you couldn't tell in one picture that Sydney was baking in the Texas sun!
Who doesn’t love a rooftop with a city view? 2616 Commerce Event Center is located in Deep Ellum, TX and is the perfect venue for a wedding, birthday party or reception. Their space is so versatile. They have a penthouse suite, a large ballroom space on the main level and the fabulous rooftop with views of downtown Dallas, that we used for the styled shoot. The Kendall Sofa from Perch Event Décor defintely made its mark!
It wouldn’t be a shoot with Team HLE without #CHAMPS! I always come prepared. Especially when it’s 96 degrees in May. When we weren’t chugging water, this Rosé was the most delicious alternative in the Texas heat.
Posing #LIKEABOSS. Making it look easy to sit in a layered gown in near 100-degree heat in direct sunlight. Sydney was pure magic all day long.
That’s a wrap, y'all! Summer has officially begun! Hope you enjoyed scrolling through this copper-infused, bold & beautiful styled shoot to kick off the Summer wedding season! Thanks to all our wonderful vendors for their part in making this gorgeous and HOT day happen!
