Engaged Wedding Library | A Styled Shoot

September 16, 2017 | Uncategorized

Stephanie at The Engaged Wedding Library is so cool.   She really is a pro.  She has put together a Bridal Expo unlike any other.  She’s created The Engaged Collective which is at Haven on September 17th.  Brides from all over have the opportunity to attend for only $15!!! and meet tons of vendors and find the right fit for their wedding.  The theme of the event is to assemble vendors and create a styled shoot based upon one of 6 themes.  Last month, I got to join 12 of Birmingham’s best wedding vendors to be part of #TeamClaire.


I was invited to film the day and gather behind the scenes footage.  The theme of the day was Glam.  If you know me, or at least have met me, you’ll know that the last term you would use to describe me is Glam.  That’s OK… I decided that I was up to the challenge and I created a video styled after a New York Fashion Week shoot… because I’m also VERY NYC Fashion Week (not really). But seriously… this was a fun exercise.

For those of you who don’t know what a styled shoot is… Join the club.  I didn’t either.   A Styled Shoot is when you put on a Mock, or Fake Wedding with a model as the bride and go through the motions as if it was an actual wedding day.

Like I said before, the folks on my team are the real deal.  I’m honored to be part of it.  I can’t believe they let me join them for this.  I’m very excited to attend as this will be Jessica and my first Bridal Show that we attend as vendors (we went to some when we were engaged) and I think the Engaged Collective will be unlike any other bridal expo around town.  Hope you can make it.
