When two Dallas wedding industry vendors, Denise Knitch at Dixie Does Vintage and Elizabeth Fisher, received a phone call from a Los Angeles celebrity event planner, asking them to do a tablescape set for a TV morning news show, they decided to take it to the next level and add a “A Beastly Kind Of Love” wedding photo shoot.
The TV segment and shoot were timed to coincide with the opening of Disney’s new adult movie “Beauty and The Beast”.
Slomique, who is a regular on the David Tutera’s CELEBrations show, helped direct and also model as “Belle” in the “Beastly Kind Of Love “ shoot.
The White Sparrow Barn , voted a top ten wedding venue, was the setting of this nontraditional and decidedly edgy shoot. The custom yellow gown is by Nardos Design and how perfect is the model playing the Beast? Will Roth, the Beast model, is actually a member of a Fort Worth folk rock band Moonlight Native . Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe created the floral, ivy and bouquet designs and the book calligraphy menu was from Scribbles and Swirls.
How clever are the book titles on the custom cake designed by The London Baker? Dixie Does Vintage provided all the fabulous vintage brass, table decor, and props and furniture.
Industry wedding photography pros Maggie Hargrove from Magg Shots Photography and Mellissa Spurrier from Melissa Claire Photography worked as a team and managed to capture every beautiful beastly moment of the photo shoot.
Dallas based event planners Julie Blakey and Sarah Robison from Refined Romance Events co-collaborated with LA based Slomique to design and direct the Beastly Kind Of Love photo-shoot.
