The second the three shoots today is an exciting and unique shoot that transforms a raw space into something fun and glam. Brandi Dunagan of Country Sugar Events in San Antonio, Texas, was inspired by the couture bride. Brandi shows how brides can still be mindful of the environment and remain resourceful but enjoy a celebration that is still filled with glitz and glam. Be sure to leave your comments if you are in love with Brandi's entry. Your votes can help her get to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy!
1. fabulous – When I thought of fabulous glitz and glam automatically came to mind. Fabulous is a feeling and a state of mind…something that can often be enhanced by your surroundings.
2. graceful – Effortless and ladylike. Graceful is the word that inspired me to have my neutral as a bright crisp white.
3. “near and dear to our hearts” – I honestly was drawn to the word heart within the opening explanation of the challenge. I wanted to go glam but still stay very youthful and playful with the design. Incorporating hearts was such a fun way to fuse what I was going for in the look.
4. sparkle – This was such an exciting addition. Early on in the design process I knew my “sparkle” was going to be gold glitter…it’s my 2012 obsession."
alleyway was the perfect fusing of fab and raw."
the box were a classic red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing. Don’t fabulous brides eat red velvet? The heart shaped gold glitter flakes were from the baking section of the craft store and sprinkled in each box. A letter representing the first name of the bride and groom was affixed to the front of the box to bring it all together."
