The Show Must Go On

You may remember that a couple of weekends ago I went up to Columbia (home of my alma mater, Mizzou!) with my friend Jo to do an engagement shoot, and visit my friends Ashley and Brianna. 

Jo, Brianna, and I had been planning a photoshoot for months! We collaborated with a few different brands for this shoot, and I had even made an inspiration board. Naturally, out of all the beautiful weather this spring, Missouri (and surrounding states) got hit with the most intense rain that weekend and had record flooding in many places around the region. 

The show [photoshoot] had to go on, so thank sweet baby Jesus that Brianna found this amazing oasis called Helmi's Gardens in Columbia.

Helmi's was the best greenhouse I've ever been to and we got to shoot in this gorgeous jungle of a place while it was monsooning away outside. They had cats, bunnies and birds, and the most beautiful selection of plants.

You may have seen on Instagram and my IG story that I brought home the perfect fiddle leaf fig from there! Shoutout to Jo for sacrificing the cleanliness of her car for me to lug that little guy home! 😜

The cutest boutique, Gallery Style, was kind enough to send Brianna and I these outfits to style for the shoot! I'd actually been eyeing this dress for a few months because you all know how much I love black, florals, and off-the-shoulder stuff :) It's so comfortable, and can easily be dressed up or down!

Long story short, Jo is such a boss and wasn't even stressed that it was pouring down rain. We shot a couple of other looks that I'll be blogging soon! For those of you who don't know, Jo helped me start my blog waaayyyy back in the day, and I seriously wouldn't be doing this without her! So I owe her forever and ever :)
