I sorta have a band crush on this band. If you watch the movie they made you will too!! http://www.phoxband.com/ (it might be considered more of a music video. I’m not sure. Movie sounds good to me. ) They are going to be super famous in like 3 minutes if they aren’t already. I am sure of this. AAAANNNNNDDDD omg so nice. They were so nice I wondered if they had a plan to assign one or two of the band members to talk to me. I got to do team cheer at the end of the shoot -The one where everyone puts there hand in the middle with the “whooooooaaaa team” business. I love that shit. I think we yelled out something from the periodic table. That’s fun.
I took this photo for the cover of the Isthmus-I choose the backyard of the Eastside Club because it is a magical Madison location. If you are ever looking for me this summer I will probably be there. Playing croquet and drinking Pina Coladas. Or really more like the Hopolicious beer. Those Pina Colada get all sugary and I would feel sick after 2. I’m glad I thought this through.
I whole heartedly believe brunch is mostly about the drinks. The more drinks you have the better the brunch. The very last photo in this blog is one of my favorites. There was Alterra Coffee, this spritzer/white wine magical punch drink, and a beery mary! I think about brunch all week long.
I shot the very first brunch at One Barrel Brewing! This thing happened where the Nostrano people showed up with food and they call it a pop up brunch! Right? They all talked about it like it’s a thing so I got on board and was hip to the pop up idea of food. It does seem very smart and delicious. Best grits i’ve ever had! I mean the whole idea is just so cute. First the drinks show up and then different courses of food came -drinks were refilled and people were mingling. It was amazing. OH, and there was also this bourbon pudding at the end. I’m still thinking about that.
Tina is about my favorite person in the world. And Nick is probably my fourth favorite person in the world! AND THEY GOT MARRIED! It was a nice little ceremony at the HIlton Head with family members. The day was easy and cute and heartfelt. Good work team. I’m glad I got to be at your wedding! I did get to the wedding about an hour before the ceremony….a little stressful….but it works! Tina wore a dress she got at BHLDN-which is the Anthropologie wedding dress store. SO CUTE. SO SO CUTE. One of my favoritest dresses so far. And Tina couldn’t quit smiling. It was perfect.
I really love it when Justin & Cynthia get married. This wedding was great & perfect. Lawn games, music, and a DIY bar. I’ve known Cynthia for a couple years and she’s one of the nicest & easy going gals I know. Just goes with it–pleasant & nice. This is exactly how the wedding felt. No big to do’s. She did do a dress change from the wedding to reception-that was her diva moment. HA!
The bands that played at the wedding were delightful. Justin was looking very handsome in his suit. Shane gave a funny speech. The twice baked pototes from the 4&20 were delicious. The IPA a friend made was lovely. All the friends were looking super cute. Best day ever.
