One of my favorite ways to meet new vendors and feel that creative juice flow is doing styled shoots! This past week I had the honor of providing linens for a styled shoot by The Midwestern Bride and it turned out beautifully (I'll share some of the pics once I get them!). I had been planning on doing a styled shoot locally or in Wisconsin this year, but then I started thinking about all the places I haven’t seen – all of the states with beautiful, unique, and inspiring venues & vendors. So many of my Instagram heros are in other states – I would love to work with a lot of them, but I never think of it as a possibility as I am in Illinois and don’t travel to other states frequently for events.
All that’s about to change! Which brings me to the announcement – my newest adventure is actually in part a goal. A styled shoot in every. state. I’m calling it “Style the States” (#stylethestates) and I’m super excited to begin next month! We are scheduling out states in small chunks, so for right now here is our current planned schedule (months and locations may be shifted based on venue/location availabilities):
I am so excited to meet new vendors and see the states! Follow me on Instagram or search using the hashtag #stylethestates to follow my adventure.
If you are a vendor in any state (including Illinois!) and would like to participate in one of the styled shoots, please submit your info here:
