Another thing we love is the opportunity to collaborate with other talented wedding artists. A few months ago, I received an email from the wonderfully talented Brandi Smyth, asking if we would be interested in collaborating on a styled shoot. She was planning a vacation in Costa Rica, and wanted to take advantage of the trip and do a shoot. I immediately said yes and went about enlisting the help of Kirsten and Jon at Eventos Artesanos, Vicky at Costa Rica Bridal Services, Tricia at Maravilla Weddings, Victoria Zoch, and our great two models Fran and Brian. Of course, we needed a perfect beach venue and I didn't have to look very much before finding it at Las Catalinas! Brandi brought a lovely dove grey dress from The Dress Theory, lovely calligraphy place setting from All Things Lovely Paper Co and hand dyed silk ribbon from Silk and Willow. A dream come true.The seaside grey inspiration was shot in film and resulted in a lovely shoot that was featured on the always stunning Wedding Sparrow.
