my candy-colored everest.

2 photographers. 10 models. 2 hair stylists. 1 make-up artist. 4 assistants. 13 gowns. 14 pairs of shoes. mountains of jewelry. pages of hair and make-up inspiration.  and less than 1 one of month of planning. 

choosing models. choosing dresses. trying to pair the models with the dresses. trying to pairs brides with bridesmaids. realizing a dress doesn't come in someone's size and having to find someone else who will work in that dress. choosing bridesmaid dresses that won't clash in a group photo but offer five different style (garden, beach, princess pink, crystal white, and floor-length black tie attire). finding shoes for all ten looks. again in the models' size. all under certain price points of course - bridal gowns had to be under $1000. bridesmaids under $300. shoes under $250. tricky. tricky.

but so worth it. 

more details and behind-the-scenes photos to come. but be sure to check out today's budget-friendly bridal fashion on the everygirl. part one of two! there are about 50 more photos where that one came from.
