Preparing for my own wedding opened a whole new door to a creative field I did not know existed, wedding styling! I love the idea of bringing a bohemian, vintage, creative flair to events or interiors. I asked one of my favorite Philadelphia based florists, Hana & Posy, and my wedding photographer, Amie Schroeder Photography & Cinema, to collaborate with me as I styled a mock engagement photo shoot in hopes it would be featured on a blog! Well, I was overjoyed when Style Me Pretty decided to feature us!!!!!
The photo shoot takes place in Philadelphia, PA, in a park near Kelly Drive and in the Azalea Garden. At one point the park turned into a dog playground and we were chased away into the Azalea Garden to finish the shoot.

My styling background: My mother was an interior designer when I was young, so I grew up with her decorating, styling, and bringing things together! I always thought about going to school for interior design myself, but followed my passion for teaching instead. I struggled my whole life with a learning disability and was inspired to help others who learn in different ways. I taught elementary school for two years and was then laid off due to budget constraints across the city. I decided to take this chance and pursue my passion for styling and decorating. I landed my dream internship with THE BEST wedding planner/stylist company in Philadelphia, Styled Creative. I was hoping to stay on board and start a new career, then my husband matched for his residency in Boston. We had two months before moving, so I stopped interning and wanted all the time in the world to spend those last months with family, friends, and preparing to relocate. I styled this shoot during this time, and this was one of the best times in my entire life!
