moonrise kingdom

posted on: Thursday, August 22, 2013

A couple months back, my boyfriend and I were asked to be a part of a wedding inspiration shoot by our lovely friend Laura Izumikawa. If you follow my Instagram you might have caught a little sneak peak of me looking very bridal. Laura along with Caroline, the amazing set designer, came up with a swoon worthy shoot inspired by Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" meets Kinfolk Magazine. I even got to get glammed up by the lovely ladies from e2beauty. I wish someone would do my makeup every day. Once again, I digress. So the shoot took place up in the mountains and let me just say, I was sold. Good golly. The venue was so beautiful! I never pictured myself as a mountain gal but where do I sign up? Every single detail blew my mind from the amazing dessert display, to the alter decor, to the Moonrise Kingdom inspired props. Epic dinner party or what? And where does one even get a stack of old letters like that!? That's why they pay them the big bucks. The pictures came out beautifully I almost don't believe that's us in them. You can see the wonderful features on Green Wedding Shoes in two parts. Such a great experience and in awe of how talented people are!
