Way back around last May, while Mama & I (but mostly Mom) were busy planning my wedding, she entered me into EVERY contest available. One of them was a cover shoot for Atlanta Bride & Groom Planner (which includes a massage and facial, sweet!). There were four finalists, and the guests at a bridal show at the Ritz in Atlanta voted on the bride that would make the cover. They brought us up on stage (totally felt like a pageant!) and I acutally WON! Can you believe that????
Here's the announcement they sent out:
So, after several months, I finally had the shoot. We met at an abandonned warehouse in Marietta (artsy, right?) where they had this beautiful scene set up. Here are a few pics of the photographer's assistant practicing for what the shoot would look like...(I took these, so don't judge...)
I had a make-up artist/hairstylist transform me into the look they were going for- a romantic, soft, sweet look. I LOVED my hair! I like to wear a LOT of eye makeup though, so I wish they would have let me wear more eyeliner and mascara and have a little softer lip, but it's okay. They didn't want me to look too harsh. Linda, the super sweet publisher of Atanta Bride & Groom Planner, let me listen to Pandora- the Queen station- on her phone while we were getting ready.
