Wedding's Galore {plus design for Shabby Apple}!!

Who's ready for August!! We have a lot of exciting things coming up... I'm shooting another wedding next weekend, school start's August 15th, then we head out west August 17th to Utah/Idaho for 10 days for my Aunt Julie and Cliff's wedding and then my Brother and Annie's wedding the next weekend!!  Eeeeek... I can't wait.

Speaking of weddings, I teamed up this month with Candace from Colour by Candace to shoot a Couture Bridal Session!!  I am very excited with how everything turned out... for the whole story/post visit:  Here are a few of my faves....

Enough about wedding dresses... let's talk bridesmaids dresses!!  My adorable sister-in-law to be has asked all the sisters to wear gray dresses for her wedding.  There's going to be a lot of us, so I was hoping to find something really beautiful and different..... that has a little sleeve, hits at the knee and doesn't show enormous amounts of cleavage!!!  Mission: Impossible, right!!!  Actually, I think I did find something, BUT one of the first places I checked out was Shabby Apple Dresses.  They have gorgeous, stylish, modest dresses and I just LOVE the photography all over their website.  Well, I got to thinking... I wish I could just design my own dress.  THEN, I noticed shabby apple hosts a "dare to design" contest...... my pencil hit the paper and I started sketching.

Dress designer I AM NOT!!!  But, I thought it would be fun to try b/c I always have ideas floating around in my head and I really wish I could find something like this for my bridesmaid dress {I would choose paring #1 or #3}!!  Here is my "Design for Shabby Apple"

And just for fun here's one more dress sketch... I want this one too!!
Anyway, hope everyone is having a great summer... looking forward to August!!
