Hollywood Glam Mock-up

August 5, 2010

It was time for another mock up and we had found the perfect place. Its a fantastic restaurant and lounge found downtown on Lawrence. “Cush“. We had a girls night there and knew this was the place. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for. However this time we decided to mix it up.

Mock-up meets charity event.

Thats right, two birds one stone. Just like finding the perfect venue we had the perfect cause. You see, one of our girls from girls night had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Shes 28 and one of the toughest women you will ever meet. Shes a single mom of two kids and a hard worker to boot. It was perfect. She deserved it like no one else and then for an even bigger twist… why not have her as the bride ! And so she got all dolled up for the day. Hair, make-up, dress… we even found her a stand in groom. And so the day began.

There were many people who made this day possible. So here is our list of thank yous :

First off none of it would have been captured without the mad photography skills of Jessica Zais Photography. You’re amazing as always. The beautiful dress courtesy of Bliss Bridal. (Let me just say – if you need a dress, its the place to go. The store itself is eye candy from the moment you walk in). The amazing makeup skills of Melissa Craven. (Be sure to check out her new website!) Of course we can’t forget the venue it self. So a big thank you to Cush for hosting. Even our floral supplier donated some of the flowers for the event. Flair Chair Covers helped out with the crystal beads to add that bit of glamor. Huge thank you to those who helped with set up and take down as well. Couldn’t have done it without you. Oh and *cough cough* thank you to  Stage Right Etc who did all the beautiful decor. 🙂

Ok, thank yous complete. Now feast your eyes….. 🙂

This may be my favorite wedding picture ever. Wait…. yup, it is.

One of the bouquet shots of the year. I love it.

This one was too awesome not to post.

This shoot would not have been the same without Marks awesome facial expressions !

This one cracks me up everytime. Sheer awesome-ness.

And now for some of the decor shots…… eeee…….

Again, many thanks to those who made this event a great success ! And to Christine… you are an inspiration to all of us. You are the definition of true beauty. It starts on the inside and as we can all see doesn’t end there. Love you woman.
