Rooftop BBQ with Patina Vintage Rentals

When the lovely ladies of Patina Vintage Rentals invited me to their BBQ, they asked if I could snap a few pics, and of course I could not deny them!  I knew they were going to make it a beautiful evening, with some of the loveliest faces in Brooklyn.  So I ended up taking more then a few pics, since there were so many great photo ops!  Thanks for having me ladies!

I don't know how they got all of this stuff up there, but they are resourceful gals, so of course, everything was perfect!

Of course, some lovely furniture for their guests to lounge was provided, including this darling little love seat.

Styled Shoot at The Wythe Hotel

I can't begin to say how much I love this shoot!  Viva Max, of Viva Max Weddings and I came together to create this spring inspired shoot at The Wythe Hotel.  We wanted to showcase a story that incorporated vivid spring colors that really pop off the page so to speak.  I definitely had a strong a attachment to the aesthetic and feel, which I feel like we really pulled off!  The vibe is definitely meant to be joyous and celebratory for couples that want to feel like they get to enjoy the party as much as their guests. So many amazing people came together to make this look happen, and I can't thank everyone enough.  When we began to pull together for the shoot, we knew were taking a risk by going with such vibrant colors, but it seemed like something that would be really fun, and great if we could pull it off elegantly and creatively, while still maintaining a cohesive look.  In the end, I think all of the elements came together beautifully, and as DJ Gaza told me, he felt like the images feel fresh, which is exactly what we wanted!! Thank you everyone, and please check out all the fabulous vendors listed below to help create this look too!  A big thanks to 100 Layer Cake for the feature.   To see more, visit the link here.
