We landed in Paris late on Tuesday evening. Everywhere has been an adventure, but Paris really kept the ball rolling! We flew into BVA (Beauvais), which is about an hour outside the city. (The things you learn when you travel: Pay more for a closer airport.) Anyway ...
I'm not sure if you have driven a car in a foreign country — or specifically one where they drive on the opposite side of the road and car — but it's quite ... um ... a mix of terrifying and exhilarating. 😁 I'm also not sure if it's worse for the driver or the passengers! Let's tell a little story.
There's a special buzz on the day of styled shoots. The energy is strong, the excitement is palpable, and being that we were in another country, we were on fire!
We spent the morning of our shoot meeting up with our newest Icelandic Viking, Gudrun, for brunch in the harbor. (I lovvveeee boats! Did I mention that yet?) It was probably our favorite restaurant so far. Gudrun was so helpful. She made phone calls for us, helped us map things out and made our Iceland trip totally possible and wildly fun!
What started out as a whisper of an idea came to fruition today! Our once-in-a-lifetime dream trip is unfolding in front of us, three wedding-styling girls — Emily, Maggie and me — and our trusty sidekick, Marie. We are off to explore three different countries and shoot the most breathtaking wedding styled shoots you could ever imagine seeing.
