Ivory and Beau shares Kate Pankoke: Behind the scenes...

So I have truly enjoyed being a part of the Savannah wedding community over the past year, and I love meeting new people. Savannah, Georgia really is beautiful, and the vendors here are amazing! Not too long ago, I had the opportunity to shoot a gorgeous wedding that Nicole from Ivory and Beau had helped create. I (of course) started following her on Facebook and have had the opportunity since then, to watch her and her partner Adrienna grow their outstanding business. I think that anyone who has the courage to follow their dreams and love what they do, is awesome!  They are great at it too!

For those of you that don't know, Ivory and Beau is a bridal boutique with GORGEOUS unique wedding gowns and accessories. They also do unique wedding planning! When they needed models for their recent styled shoot, I of course....volunteered my sister!! She is gorgeous, and perfect for their dresses, so I knew she had to do it. This was also my chance to check out all of their lovely things by tagging along and documenting the day. 

The dresses that were featured in this shoot were those of Kate Pankoke, who was on the 11th and 12th seasons of Project Runway! Her line is called Elaya Vaughn. She is phenomenal. I also decided that we were meant to meet, and become great friends due to the fact that we are both Katelyn Marie's. She has a fantastic talent, and she is the nicest person. She is one of those people you always want to surround yourself with. She was so hands-on, and I cannot wait to see where her designing takes her. 

My sister and I spent the day with amazing vendors from Savannah. Hair and make-up was by  Michelle Royal. (Who is also amazing and was on Project Runway). Our venue was at Brockington Hall, which is absolutely stunning. The photographer was Alexis Sweet, who is awesome, and was kind enough to let me sneak some shots of Sara through the process, and the models were so sweet and also just beautiful in Kate's dresses. 

Please enjoy these photos and show these vendors love! They are all fantastic.
