Whimsical Styled Shoot ı Meridian Hill Park ı Washington, DC
Some of our fave District Bliss vendors got together for a styled photoshoot!
Not shockingly, our very own Sara, with help from Sarah Campbell of Pollyanna Events, went a little crazy with their creativity for this styled shoot.
Somehow, we landed on an ombre tie-dyed wedding gown. Katie found the perfect dress while Sara hunted for the perfect color. With spring in the air, Sara settled on blush and dove head first into the dyeing process. And, it certainly was a process. Sara spent 24 hours slowly moving the dress out of the dye to create the ombre effect. It worked shockingly well - which was good because not only did we not have a backup plan, but she didn't start the process until 24 hours before the shoot; in fact, the dress was still being dyed when our vendors arrived to start make-up and hair! But, back to the photo shoot. lol
Izzy B Makeup and PSC Hair Artistry arrived at Sara's house to do hair and make-up before the gang headed over to Meridian Hill Park to get set. Pollyanna Events designed layout for the dessert table with a little help from Capital Society's designs, Highway to Hill's florals, an ombre cake from The CakeRoom Bakery, and treats from The Capital Candy Jar. The shoot went off without a hitch and we think everything came together beautifully. We are super excited to share these photographs with you! Be sure to check out all of our amazing vendors. We are super lucky to have met these talented vendors through District Bliss!
