I shot a lovely little winter wedding this weekend...
Last spring, I was walking downtown Stillwater and saw a new store with really cute home decor stuff in the windows. I walked in, saw the cute chairs, art and accessories and had a little lightbulb over the head moment. I walked up to the girl who was working and asked to have the owner give me a call because I had a fun idea for some promo shots. A few days later, I get a call from Darcy, the owner and tell her my ideas. You would think she would have said, "Eh, I'll think about it..." but nope! Darcy was all for some funky images of her shop and her wares. Summer came, I had some time in between weddings and "The Chairs" concept came to life! You really should have seen us, Darcy and I hauling chairs, vases and lamps thru open fields, forests, and alleys. It was quite the workout! But the shots I got with Darcy's furniture styling were just what I had in mind. After we shot "The Chairs", we headed inside and got some cool interiors of the shop and everything in it. Maison Galleria has been open for a while now and if you are looking for some great accessories for your home that aren't mass-produced in Sweden, you should stop in and say hello to Darcy! The Chairs: All the goodies inside:
I just got the latest copy of MN Bride, which is a great resource for planning your wedding btw, and came across some familiar faces. Congrats to Abby and Jason! I am still loving those green bridesmaid dresses with the pink bouquets!
