My VERY first photo shoot was for a Bridal Editorial for Charlotte Brides.com featuring the Charlotte Ballet. It was truly a celebration of the arts and I couldn’t be happier and prouder of my business to be represented in such an inspirational piece. As a little girl, I dreamed of becoming a dancer (I can barely chew gum and walk at the same time…my career as a dancer was short lived..ha!) so when I got asked to help with a styled shoot that included BALLERINAS, I WAS IN! An unbelievable experience to work with such exceptional vendors, there were so many delightful, beautiful, and delicate details to this shoot, check out our vintage pieces below:
