Social media is amazing. This inspiration shoot all started with a random Facebook comment. One afternoon my husband and I were watching a show on the DIY Network called Rehab Addict. I realized that her Minnehaha House was here in Minneapolis. I found her Facebook fan page and sent her a message telling her how much I love the show and that I had an idea to create a conception shoot in her home. There is an episode where Nicole Curtis designs her dressing room to have an old classic Hollywood glamour feel to it. I thought it would be so fun to use her dressing room for a bridal suite. To my surprise – Nicole was interested in my vision and wanted to get our creative heads together.
I immediately called up Christina DeCuffa founder of the Blushing Room and pitched this idea to her and she was totally on board from practically the first minute and wanted to bring a modern twist to the Hollywood glamour idea.
Together with the talents of Christina DeCuffa from the Blushing Room, Ashley Fox Designs, Tasha Herrgott with Red Bird Hills, jewelry and accessories from Francesca’s Collections and modeling from Summer Michael from Wehmann Agency and Taylor Zeis we made this a reality.
Thank you THANK YOU, thank you to Christina, who founded The Blushing Room for her hard work, amazing design skills and fabulous vision for this day! She brought tons of her custom created dresses, full hair and makeup tools ready to make this day a success! Christina is one of the most creative ladies out there and if you need a custom wedding dress, hair/makeup then she is your gal! Check out her design process here. http://www.theblushingroom.com/home/the_process.php
Also a HUGE, thank you to Nicole Curtis for graciously letting me play dress up in her AMAZING home and working with me to make this idea work. One of the best parts what started as a simple Facebook post turned into a great friendship. Thanks Nicole for everything! :-)
