My favorite moment from the shoot was when the couple had their first dance. It brought the creative vision together because they were dressed in white while dancing “in the clouds.” It really showcased the heavenly beauty we were trying to create.

How did you choose the models you worked with?

For this shoot, I wanted to ensure I chose models who looked believable together. I met Anuel a few years ago at a wedding I planned in New York. He was one of the photographers, and I thought he could also pass as a model. So, I reached out to him about this opportunity.

I met Liris two years ago when she was an MC for a wedding event in Atlanta that I had put together. Since then, we’ve stayed in touch. She has also been the MC for a luxury event I do every February in Tampa.

As fate would have it, I introduced Liris and Anuel on Instagram a couple weeks before the shoot. shawls wraps They met a day before the event and were the best pairing ever. They were super organic, and the +10 guests also did a phenomenal job. I still have clients who view our page and say, “This couple’s wedding looked really beautiful. How did they meet?” No one can believe they met just a day before the shoot!

For the ceremony, Liris wore Brinkley Lynette by Maggie Sottero. This luxurious mermaid wedding gown was a no brainer! I felt like it was hand-crafted by Maggie Sottero for our Elysian wedding shoot. It had all the elements we were looking for, including crystal wedding dresses embellishments and bling on the arms.

After a two-year engagement, we were beyond ready and very excited for our wedding day, which was scheduled for August 2020. When we realized this would no longer be possible (due to safety concerns), we decided immediately to postpone the larger celebration until 2021 but still have an intimate backyard elopement long prom dresses this year. Making the decision to change our wedding plans and have a smaller ceremony this year just felt right to us.

Thankfully, our venue and vendors couldn’t have been easier to work with! I wrote a whole post about the experience here. They showed us so much kindness and patience while we worked together to find a new date for 2021. Once that was finalized, we let a few months pass to determine what the climate was looking like for this summer. At the end of June, we decided it was time to start planning!
