A Modern Twist on The White Wedding

When Lisa from Nightingale Events invited me to model in her stylized photo shoot, I leapt at the chance. I knew she'd have something special and unique up her sleeve. She decided to go back to the classic white wedding and add in a modern twist, with varying textures, soft greens, and just a hint of earthy textures to provide some contrast.


On a rainy February day, we gathered at the Keeler Tavern Museum to bring Lisa's vision to life. The moment I stepped in the building, I knew it would be a shoot I would never forget. For one thing, I got to wear incredible diamond and pearl jewelry *and* I wore a bridal gown! (I live in concert black, so when Lisa asked me to to step in to a white lace bridal gown, I did a double take!) Plus size models are so rarely represented in the wedding industry, so I'm honored that I was able to take part.


The hair and makeup team from Upstyle Co. made me feel so welcome and we became fast friends. Our photographer, Joanna Fisher, made me feel like a supermodel! That's one experience you definitely want on your wedding day: To feel like your vendor team are your new friends who have your back.
