Southern Grace Showroom Opening Event Photo

Southern Grace Showroom Opening Event PhotoOne of my favorite benefits from being at Knoxville Fashion Week was meeting two wonderful new friends, Leah Dailey and Lacey Fleming.

Leah and Lacey are the owners of a fabulous and Southern fashion boutique that began as trunk shows hosted by customers at their homes and has now made its way into a brand new (and fantastically decorated) retail showroom space!

The ladies of Southern Grace invited Knoxville Portraits to their main event for a photo booth to capture them and their guests celebrating the opening of the new space. You can see the images from the Southern Grace photo booth here.

We’ve posted all the images from the Southern Grace Showroom Opening online! More information about the online gallery is at the end of the post.

1. A funny behind-the-scenes story is that of selecting a backdrop for the photo booth.

I had intended to set up a seamless white backdrop in the showroom space, but when I arrived, the showroom was full of clothing racks (surprise, right?). Plan B was to try to set up outside with sand bags, because there was no wind. Lo and behold, as soon as the backdrop was set up, wind happened and despite holding up for 10-15 minutes of brute wind force, the backdrop failed miserably.

On to Plan C, which should have been Plan A. In the showroom was the awesome “Letter Wall” you see in the background of all the photos. It served as a great and very creative backdrop to the photo booth images and much better than what I had anticipated. The best laid plans . . .

All that to say, the decor in the showroom was fantastic, and these ladies did it all in two weeks!
