darcie (you probably know her from pink peach cakes, which i haven't blogged about, which is a very severe crime because darcie's cakes are incredible) and i are pretty good pals. i'm married to her brother, our kids get to play and yank toys away from each other, and we have time to talk. and scheme. and plan. it was one such day last fall when we were discussing ideas for a themed wedding shoot. as soon as the word, "ballet," was spoken, both of our eyes lit up, "oooohs," escaped our lips, and we knew we had something good. so we rounded up a crew of all stars, some you may have heard of, some you may not have, but you definitely should change that  (see vendor list at bottom of post), and here is what everyone came up with.

i have to confess that i am not at all responsible for most of the creativity featured here. darcie created our lovely inspiration board that we worked from, among other things (ahem, the cake and chandelier shown in this post). Sarah J Winward of Ea, aka the angel responsible for the flowers, was also heavily involved in the planning stages and styling -  and everyone else, of course worked their incredible magic in their various roles. i was just the lucky one who got to photograph it all.

Some of the images you see below here are digital and some are film. some of the film images, have what are known in the film world as "light leaks," which basically means light touched the film before it was developed, but i don't mind if you don't.

the shoot took place in december in the studio, yes before christmas, but we've all kept quiet about the whole thing as we waited excitedly for it to go up one of the loveliest wedding blogs on the entire world wide web, Snippet and Ink. Today is the day! Please head over and see Kathryn's top picks of the images that she felt told the story best, and leave a comment if you're so inlcined, because you know, its the nice thing to do. =)
