Wedding Wednesday is here again! This week we are taking a brief pause from the wedding planning stuff, mostly because… I haven’t planned anything else! The flowers I mentioned last week are still being figured out. We are waiting until after labor day to take our engagement photos for the save the dates – but the one thing that IS new is the Brides magazine influencer shoot I participated in last week! Brides magazine invited me to talk about some of perfect for your wedding day products that I’ve discovered in my preparations, that I’m really excited about! (I’ll be able to share all that with you in a couple of weeks – and I’ll you’ll get to see me on video – eee!) Even though I can’t share the actual video yet, I wanted to take you on a little trip behind the scenes!
First I went to hair and makeup – talk about a dry run for my wedding! I’d never had my makeup professionally done and it was a very cool experience. Here you can see me post touch-ups! I can’t say I learned a lot about how I want my makeup for the wedding day – but I do know it was pretty great having someone follow me around for touch ups! (Too bad you don’t get that as a bride!)
Here I am, totally not hitting my “mark” (That little spot of tape on the floor”. At first it’s a little nerve racking being in front of the camera (with a room full of people watching you!). But then I just imagined I was talking to all of YOU and things went smoothly. (I hope? I still haven’t seen the video!)
And finally here I am having a “pensive” moment between shots. (aka, it was 8:30 in the mornings and I was a little sleepy!)
I really can’t wait to share these videos with you AND update you on my progress next week! And for more sneak peeks of behind the scenes action, follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!
