Blowout Bridal Shower, Behind-the-scenes

Hello dear Utterly Engaged readers!

This is Connie, the official behind-the-scenes photographer, here to show off my goods for you all. Last month we did a photoshoot at the Dry Bar in West Hollywood. We all got there bright and early at …*drumroll* 5AM! Although sleepy-eyed and sleep-deprived, all the pros came with it and pulled off a beautiful shoot.

Also, if you haven’t checked out the newest issue of Utterly Engaged, hurry over here.


The flowers were one of our favorite parts from the shoot! They were so vibrate and beautiful. If you look close enough there were some paper flowers in the arrangements too. The ladies of Fleuretica are so talented!

The morning started with Erica of 10.11 makeup getting the girls dolled up.

This wall is so gorgeous and having the cake in front of it made the two to die for! Erica O’Brien always blows our minds with her cake designs. The wall is a signature of The Dry Bar, it’s in every salon of theirs.

Look at Ja Tecson doing this thing!

Here’s Mai styling the girls. If you haven’t been to her online shops you should check it out! and Go check it out. The girls were dressed head to toe from such rad clothes from this amazing stylist.
