We are so excited about your involvement in the Fox Valley Styled Shoot Contest! We anticipate quite a few venues and vendors being involved, so do your best! We’re hoping to show off all the suburbs have to offer. Before you fill out your entry form, please keep a few things in mind:

The Crystal Bride will provide the dress, and Mary Rose Photography will do the photoshoot. You will need to schedule a time for your model to try on dresses with the Crystal Bride. You will then need to coordinate a shoot time and date with Mary Rose Photography in JANUARY. First come, first served! 

The voting will be based off favorite still photographs, so anything that will look good on camera is welcome to be part of your shoot! You will be limited to one bride in one Crystal Bride dress for the sake of consistency, though.

As you select your vendors and your model, please keep diversity in mind. We are excited to partner with all of you, and are hoping to really promote mostly vendors from the suburbs for this shoot! 

  • Planners
  • Stylists
  • Florist
  • Hair Stylist
  • Makeup Artist
  • Stationary Designer
  • Jeweler
  • Rental Companies
  • A Model!

After all the shoots are completed, each venue will receive a downloadable gallery of edited images. You may then select the images to enter into a friendly “contest” where brides may vote on the following categories:

Best Overall
Most Unique
Best Floral Design
Best Bridal Styling
Best Color Scheme
Best Hair 
Best Makeup
Best Dress
Best Details
Best Ring
Best Stationary
Best Dessert

We hope this is a fun way to connect with other vendors, promote each other, and have some fun in the winter months.

Once you have a list of your vendors, please fill out this form.

If you know of a venue that would be interested in participating, let us know! We are limiting the number of participants, but are open to your suggestions!

If you have any questions, feel free to email Mary Rose at maryrose@maryrosephotos.com

Our hope is that this is a fun way to promote our favorite vendors and venues with a friendly competition!
