Clam Bake

This little photo shoot is near and dear to me, as I love food, gatherings, lovely ladies, and a nice photo shoot to boot!  Some of my favorite creative women in the wedding industry and I got together to share an awesome evening with the best clam chowder I have ever had!!  We had three amazing dishes all prepared by Chandara, of Chandara Creative with a lovely mango salad, a beautiful clam chowder, and some giant lobster with corn on the cob!  We finished it all off with a crazy yummy dessert by Lael Cakes.  She made the yummiest little gluten-free lemon drop cakes with lemon curd, and accented them with fresh mint sprigs and topped them with cherries and blueberries.  Our host Patricia of Fourteen Fourty Stationary, brought this all together in her lovely West Village home, as well as art directed and made all the gorgeous stationary accents in the shoot.  My dear friend Thea of Hushed commotion, used this as an opportunity to bring something different to the table, as she usually makes accessories for brides, she thought, why not incorporate her awesome beading techniques into something for the home, so she made the awesome beaded burlap napkin rings, which I love!! You can get some for yourself on her website here! Not only do we have the photos, but Courtney from Love+Brain Films, made an awesome video of our day as well!!  Thanks so much for following friends!! I'm really happy to share this with you, and I will be making more food and lifestyle based work soon!
