Our special metallic series is coming to an end today. But fret not, my pets, we're going out with a bang!
I gave Leila Khalil of Be Inspired PR our metallic challenge, and she jumped right in! Leila's boutique public-relations agency focuses on the wedding industry. As a die-hard fan of our magazine and a recent bride herself, she got right to work brainstorming ideas that tied in the colors of our metallic story and showcased the amazing talents of the vendors with which she works. And though this shoot was dreamed up as a cocktail-style party to celebrate a couple's engagement (complete with sparkling wine, greyhound-themed cocktails, and an array of desserts), this idea could also be used for a rehearsal dinner or even a bridal shower!
So who actually worked on this shoot? Aside from Leila, who produced it all, and Troy and Aimee, her friends (and wedding photographers) turned models, here's the scoop on the key players:
