Sarah’s Bachelorette

June 30, 2008

My friend Sarah is getting married in early September on the Cape, and last weekend a group of ladies gathered in Newport for a soiree in honor of her. It was a great day of beach time, good wine, good food, and fun people. I am SO excited to shoot her wedding and especially for the getaway….which will be on a vespa 🙂

Sarah is a children’s fashion designer and I always consult her on all issues style and otherwise 🙂 She took a break from children’s design to design my wedding dress which unfortunately I can’t show you until next week 🙂 She was also the one who found the bridesmaid dresses. In short – the girl’s got style 🙂

Of course I made her wear the bachelorette crown….at least for one picture 🙂

Yum – cosmos 🙂

I see pink paper!

Victoria’s Secret developed this line that is pretty cute – some items are more risque than others 🙂

Sorry – the item in this box that elicited this reaction is not blog appropriate 🙂 (don’t worry…it wasn’t that bad!)

Double brides 🙂

After dinner we headed back to the hotel to enjoy some desserts a friend sent who couldn’t make it. Sarah was TERRIFIED that we would hire a stripper and made us promise that we wouldn’t. Of course we didn’t but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun.

Our hotel was right on the harbor in Newport above a bar. We spied a few men down there and convinced them to come up and knock on the door and let Sarah figure out the rest.

Here she runs across the room in sheer HORROR after slamming the door in their faces 🙂

But don’t worry – Deb quickly let them in and made them feel welcome (we thought the uniforms were a nice touch)

And once Sarah realized that they were just friendly Navy men and not strippers we convinced her to have her picture taken 🙂

Needless to say we were all hysterically laughing as we watched the situation unfold!!!

Sarah – I can’t wait for your wedding!!! The photographer and friend in me are both VERY excited.
