A few quick updates:

 

1) There will be another girl joining us. Her name is Shawn and she works with me! She is super sweet and is getting married in October 09. Not a destination wedding; so I can't bring her into our BDW family!

 

2) Kamila can get Dream Hotel... with the addition of Shawn its only an additional $17.25 per person. King size room, 285 sq ft, for $219.

 

3) Here is an idea of how the day would go.. personally, for me - I don't mind if you girls are there when my pics are done and like the idea that we can all hang out and drink champagne and relaz together... It will probably help me relax more if we are all just having fun. But, its a completely personal decision for everyone. I am good with however you all want to do this...

 

"We will start at about 11:30 - so the first girl can arrive at that time and start the hair/makeup process. The actual shoot will start at about 12:00ish, so the next girl can arrive at about 1:00, then about 2:00 and about 3:00 - if you want to be all separate and not have anyone else in the room at the same time as your shoot.

 

The last shoot I did in NYC the room was relatively small so Michelle had all her equipment set up in front of the bed, with plenty of room for me to move around, move my ligths around and pose etc. All of the girls arrived at once and just hung out, drank champagne and chatted - it was a good time. The girl that went last, after everyone else left, actually said that it was "more fun" when everyone was in the room cheering each other on and chatting and it made her feel more self-conscious to be alone in the room with just me and my cameras and lights!

 

If any of you feel very uncomfortable about being seen by others, you may want the later spot. I think you mentioned Shawn needs a later timeslot so she can arrive at 4:30 and be finished by about 6:00. However if you want to chat with other brides, listen to music and hang out drinking champagne etc - you can all arrive at once. The photo shoot is still just one person per shoot, so you get at least an hour of shooting devoted to each person."

 

Let me know what you all think!!!

Kamila was very excited with the venue, amount of natural light, etc for our photos; so I wouldn't stress to much. IMHO, a neutral backdrop is less distracting and makes you the focus of the pics as well as allows for more freedom with your outfit color choices etc.. But, that is just my 2 cents; I am super flexible with where we do this but I had to make a decision at the time based on the feedback I had.

I will check with Kamila; but I think that the room has already been booked. Thank you for looking into it.. I will post back on here once I hear back.

Oh and Kristy.. I will check about the hair/makeup we should have on when we get there.

All - I think the lobby would be the best place to meet at 1130am; but again I will check with Kamila and get back to you all soon.

smile03.gif to all!! I can't wait to meet you and share this! We are going to have so much fun!

Hi Ladies,

 

I would like for us all to meet in the lobby at 11:15am of the hotel so we can discuss all the below for logistical sake.

 

I just heard back from Kamila re: the following -

 

Venue - it is already booked.

Dream Hotel 210 W 55th St New York

Kamila said "As far as the lighting - no worries! I bring all my professional lighting equipment and I can shoot in pretty much any light situation."

 

Timing: hair/makeup for the first person starts at 1130am

Kamila said: "Of course if you want to all arrive together thats ok, but maybe we may need a couple of the girls to hang out in the lobby or restaurant for a bit if other girls are not comfortable with everyone being in the room with them! i think it will be a lot of fun if all the girls hang out together, but there just may be a little bit of moving around during the shoots, but if everyone is okay with other girls being in the room while they are getting their shoot done - this will be a lot of fun, so it's totally okay with me as long as it's okay with you girls!!"

 

Order of shooting:

Kamila said "And usualy the girls choose the order in which the sessions go, depending on what time works better for each girl."

 

Hair/Makeup:

Kamila said "First, yep definitely come with clean dry hair and fresh faced, no makeup."

I was gonna bring one of my friends from work I would feel more comfortable with a familiar face. Looking at the size of the room there is no way we will have a place for 4 girsl a photographer and a hair lady. So i dont know how you want to do this.?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
