I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Pinterest. Look, I can get sucked into it for hours, seeing all the beautiful pictures and gathering inspiration for my home, baby nurseries, fashion, beauty tips and so on.
Now another aspect of social media, is sharing our big, exciting moments. Problem is the pressure to create picture perfect social media posts is more intense than ever.
One couple decided to go to Pinterest to get inspiration for how they could reveal their engagement in a photo!
Alyssa Snodsmith and Collin Hewett found a beautiful picture of the guy pouring champagne into this womans mouth, while sitting on a picnic blanket in a picturesque field. Easy to recreate, right?
They became internet sensations after posting a Pinterest engagement photo they were trying to re-create alongside what actually happened.
So, the couple decided to re-create the Champagne shot — and quickly discovered it wasn’t as easy as Pinterest made it look.
On the first take, Hewett was able to get some Champagne into Snodsmith’s mouth , but the angle was wrong and not very complimentary to the future bride.
So take 2 happened…
Collin ended up overpouring the champagne bottle and champagne splashed all over her face, up her nose and onto her top – the pic is hilarious.
The photographer carried on shooting and you just see Collin feeling so terrible, while Alyssa is blowing her nose trying to get the champagne out and cleaning up her clothes.
I love that it’s gone viral – it shows the reality of trying to get photos like this! We always say social media is a highlights reel and this keeps it real!
