Rehearsal and Shoot Day

Here are some sneak peak photos of the fun we have been having while filming. My entire production crew is amazing and I am grateful for this opportunity and can't wait to be on your TV's, in your living rooms!


Rehearsal day with my 1st guest (and best friend), Anne

Shoot day! I had my very own dressing room and make up/hair gal, who stayed with us all day, doing touch ups. I have to admit, I could get used to that!


Shoot Day! We had a great day of filming. Boy when those fancy lights, multiple cameras and ALL eyes on set and in the control room, are on you, do you get nervous! Good thing, we had plenty of wine on hand!


We also had a "roll-in" shoot, which was on location at a local market. Thanks to Tyler, the owner of Provisions Local Market in downtown Waxhaw for participating in the segment and letting us take over the store all morning!

And more thanks to Melanie (and Josh) at the Black Chicken in Waxhaw for letting my friends and I (and entire production crew) take over the wine shop for some fun lifestyle photos of us doing what we do best, talking, laughing and drinking wine!
