On Saturday, November 25th, 2017, my fantastic team of vendors and models descended upon the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Canton, Ohio, for a styled bridal photo shoot. I have been planning this event for some time. One of my favorite movies stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire – Funny Face. It’s the only movie they ever made together. My video partner, Joseph Testa Productions, filmed the whole day, and put together a great video! We would like to share it with you! Just click the link and enjoy!

I love, love, love the movie “Funny Face”, with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire! It was the perfect combination of story, song, dance, and fashion! The fact that the majority of the story took place in Paris, France, just adds to the charm of the movie. The scenery was amazing. I highly recommend that you view it sometime!
This is my take on a wedding inspired by this iconic cinematic masterpiece. I would love to create this for a couple, or even a styled photo shoot. If anyone would like to work on this with me, please feel free to send me a message!
I love the 1950’s! The full gowns, the classic tuxedos; when big bands and rock-n-roll were tops. Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, the Benny Goodman Orchestra, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Dean were some of the influences of the day. It was an era of innocence and glamour at the same time. I took those influences and created this board. Enjoy!
