Forever Bride Commercial Shoot


Forever Bride Commercial Shoot

Amy Brace

I never thought I would be the type of person to have my very own commercial for my own business. Since I graduated college as a CT Technologist, I thought it would be my career for life. Thankfully after ten years in the medical field, I have found my real passion. Baking. I have been baking with my mom as long as I can remember. And now with the support of my husband, daughter, family and friends I have started my own business. 

Through cupcakes, cakes and macarons I feel like I can change the world. Or at least make people amazing desserts to share with their loved ones. Baking for me is home. Spending quality time with the people I love. I love baking with my mom and will make any excuse to do so. When I bake for someone, I hope they feel the passion and love I put into each and every order. Baking is comfort and baking is my happy place.  

With Forever Bride I was able to capture all these moments on camera, which I will be able to share with you in a couple short months. Homemade desserts with only the best ingredients because you deserve only the best.

Shooting the commercial was beyond nerve racking, and for me meant only the best of the best in procrastination. I knew many months in advance when the commercial was going to be shot, but I kept putting off planning because I was nervous. Nervous to be on camera, and nervous to represent my business in the best possible way. I had A Precious Petals Florist deliver a gorgeous bouquet to make it beautiful, I borrowed beautiful jewelry from SBG Designs to make me sparkle, and I had hair and make up done by Candra Ruiz Makeup Artisty. I baked a three tiered cake, dozens of cupcakes and dozens of macarons. I shopped with my mom for what felt like hours for the perfect stands and platters to display my goodies. 

So as far as it looked from the outside I was prepared. Any and every detail was accounted for and ready to go. I was ready? I was ready to put myself and my business out there for everyone to see. Yup. I'm ready. We had such a great time shooting everything. I can crack eggs with the best of em. Then came the interview. For some reason my nerves were getting to me, and I couldn't get the words to come out of my mouth in the right order. Maybe I could've used more coffee...or maybe I had too much haha. 

After all said and done I can honestly say I can not wait to see the produced commercial. It's going to be amazing and I can't wait to share it with you. So excited! I'm imagining me looking very Food Network star-like and showing the world what I can do in my/Lindsey's kitchen.  

Here are a few sneak peeks and behind the scenes photos from that day! Loved it more than I could've ever imagined. I hope you all enjoy and so excited to share my incredible commercial with you! Thanks so much to Jenny and Gerick for being so patient with me and truly representing my business in the best way possible. 


Interview time. Yowza. That was for sure the hardest part. Can't wait to see how it looks. 


Yes I was really having this much fun! 


Jenny and Gerick were having fun too! Lindsey's gorgeous kitchen she so graciously let me take over to shoot my commercial.



Hair and makeup in the making and me multitasking and doing my nails at the same time. Candra did an amazing job and everything looked just how I imagined. 


My biggest fans keeping themselves entertained. No picture of my mom or Lindsey, but they were there cheering me on too. Love you all!


All done and finally getting to eat all the delicious treats! Jenny I hope you read this because in my professional opinion this will be the best commercial ever! It's whisky to say, but it had to be said.
