Today was a fun day, I had the opportunity to work on a collaboration shoot with a colleague/friend of mine.  Catherine of CS Events based in Jersey City, NJ and I have been talking about doing a photo shoot together for a month or two now and she had the opportunity and asked me to join in on the project.

The photo shoot was held at Laurita Winery in New Egypt, NJ and it was to be an engagement shoot.  A colleague of hers was the photographer on the shoot.   My job on this project was to provide props and a bit of styling.

We had colors, vision and an amazing couple that I had yet to see until today.  I was so happy when I saw this gorgeous couple who just so happened to love vintage.    They were so excited for their engagement shoot with props and we were excited to make it special.

As they got their outfits on and ready to go, we headed into the vineyard to set up vignettes for the photographer to shoot her awesome couple.  The weather was hot, humid and not very pleasant but we forged on and made some awesome memories for all of us.

The sweets were provided by Lenny's Sweet Treats and let's just say that was sweet tooth was satisfied at the end of the day.  Her cakes are awesome and I encourage you all to check her out.

I think the couple enjoyed their shoot and were very happy with our work and all the props used on this shoot.   I had to share this photo of them that the photographer was shooting and the future groom kisses his fiance's shoulder then does a True Blood moment and says "I forgot to tell you Im a vampire".  So cute, so sweet they were awesome and so glad to be apart of their special day!

Here's to June 28, 2014 when these 2 tie the knot!

My husband is an awesome father to our 5 children, he is also a fan of the show Man vs. Food...we watch it all the time...im hooked too.  Adam Richman visits the best spots and makes us very hungry often.  This is the kids surprising Daddy with Dunkin Donuts coffee, donuts snack and surprise candy card.

As you can see he was surprised.

The cards says...    To The Best Dad,
We wanted to give you (100Grand) for Father's Day but the $ slipped our (Butterfingers).
We didn't have an (Extra) money because it wasn't (PayDay).  So here is hoping your day is
full of (Mounds) of (Almond Joy)

Love Your,  Hot Tamales..lol

We decided that on Father's Day we would drive about 1 hour and a half away to visit the City of Philadelphia and do our own Man vs. Food challenge................CHEESESTEAK STYLE!!!

Our Best Man & Maid of Honor (and still great friends) came along with the kids...by the way they have 5 children too.     ROOOOOOAD TRIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

YEP...... We made our way to visit the FAMOUS Pat King of Steaks & Geno's and did a taste test of both cheesesteaks and fries!

How awesome is this shot...I swear I love taking pictures.

This wall is to the right of Pat's King of Steak's place

Here is our combined crew, our friend's 5 children and 5 of our 6...we get the funniest look when we go places together...looks like a field trip!!!

My one and only son who isn't a baby anymore, sitting across from me today I realized he is grown, graduating next week and off to high school.  Love this kid!!!

My husband and his friend Joey on the right who was also our Best Man.  
Love this pic of them!

This is my Love and I standing at Geno's.  Your an awesome father and I love you for it more everyday...sometimes we give so much more when we didn't have it ourselves.

And yes, we did taste both spots cheesesteaks and their fries....Honestly, they were both awesome and the 4 adults were torn in making a real choice.   We thought Pat had awesome fries, we thought Geno's steak was awesome but I thought the cheese was too runny but it tasted salty and awesome.

Soooooooooooooooooo....guess we will just have to go back and do it again to make a final choice!
