As promised, here are some behind-the-scenes shots from the FMS Wedding's "Decades of Dresses" layout!
That's photographer Edmund Barr, lining up a shot of the '40s-inspired dresses.
Merrill Melideo of Lovely Bride Bridal Shop styled the shoot and attended to every detail!
"I found the bridal shop from an online video they had posted about vintage bridal styling," Vanessa said. "Then, Taylor and I went to the shop and picked out a few dresses that we felt represented each decade. Merrill brought them all over on the day of the shoot, along with veils, jewelry and accessories."
Vanessa and Taylor's favorite? The Nicole Miller '30s-inspired dress on Page 63!
"It was a very fun day," Vanessa said. "Taylor and Ki brought fresh flowers for styling. I brought a box of Starbucks and snacks. While we were doing the accessories shot, we felt like we needed one more piece. I happened to be wearing a vintage bracelet that had been given to me the weekend before when I was a bridesmaid at my best friend's wedding. It fit perfectly into the shot and made it into the final edit!"
This was the first fashion shoot Ki has produced for Flea Market Style! She had fretted a bit about how it would turn out, but I think you'll agree, she needn't have worried!
