{shoot} simply lovely

If I had to describe today's style shoot in two words, it would have to be simply lovely. Oh and I can't forget to mention how I'm completely smitten with the macaroon bar.  
The dynamic duo of Pedro and Marina from Fotografamos sent over this lovely shoot to share with you fine folks.  Here's what they had to say...We knew we wanted to do this in Casa de São Sebastião, a venue right here in Aveiro, Portugal because we shot a wedding there in August last year and fell in love with the place and the people. It’s a lovely, classic and elegant early-last-century house completely disguised in the city centre.  With that in mind, we contacted them and explained our concept. The moment José Carlos brings out their beautiful antique tableware, we knew we were set! 
Up to that point we had no theme whatsoever, but the color scheme was easy: the tableware was white with grey and gold stripes. So we gathered a talented group of people and started from there.  Since we wanted to work with something a little different from the usual fresh flowers, we called in Marisa, a good friend who does wonderful Origami flowers and she was thrilled to join the team.  Anabela and Rui, from Disha Gourmandise, a local boutique bakery, supplied the delicious macaroons and the simple, delicate and beautiful cake.  Gisela from Lodo designed and developed the stationery. LODO develop original and innovative Design objects and are super fun to work with.  Teresa and João (the models) had their hair styled by Joana from EnVogue hair salon. Makeup was done by Daniela Ramalho, a young rising star in makeup business.
