Styled Shoot – Kingwood Center, Ohio – Colourful Garden Wedding

The Kingwood Center Garden creates a dream wedding atmosphere, bringing together hues in peach, coral, and champagne, the colourful florals and natural elements are sure to set the scene for a romantic English wedding. The lush Kingwood Center is a stunning 47-acre public garden located in Mansfield, Ohio. Late Mr. King, the owner of the grounds, left most of his estate to the private foundation that continues to operate today. Mr. King made his fortune in Mansfield, Ohio working with the Ohio Brass Company. The beautiful gardens are a representation of English Arts and Crafts style.

Colourful, yet simple table settings with modern gold flatware, brass candle sticks and pale beige linen napkins contrasted by warm wood and bench seating along with colorful water color place cards. The bride perfectly complements the overall aesthetic with a sophisticated strapless lace tulle gown, and a gorgeous bouquet of colorful roses and peonies finished off silk ribbon. The paper suite showcases vintage romance with gold foil details, hand torn edges, and water color florals gracing the envelope liner, along with a stunning venue drawing.

Styled Shoot – The Barn at Oak Manor, Georgia – Peachy Keen Styled Shoot

This “Peachy Keen” styled wedding shoot was inspired by soft peach and pink hues with silver accents and a touch of gold. The styled shoot team met their goals of romantic, intimate, feminine, and whimsical feels. The sign “forever his always hers ” was a custom, hand-painted sign made by the calligrapher.

The florals were an important and intricate part of the wedding shoot, with a large romantic bridal bouquet that paired beautifully with the bridal gown. It looks as though it was a lovely mix between the dreamy arrangement and the sparkling details of the gown. The centerpieces of the head table were smaller, quaint pieces which complimented the loose flowers scattered across the floral runner of the estate table.

Sometimes when the weather is unpredictable and there is a chance for rain, often times this is stressful to the bride, but the cloudy day made for some great natural light filters for outdoor photography. And the gorgeous model bride and groom were super flexible, so we love the impromptu umbrella shots of them heading to the reception area.

Styled shoot – Vow renewal – Texas – Carrie & Brian

Carrie and Brian eloped back in 2013 – she actually proposed to him (go girl), – but they didn’t really get any photographs of their real wedding day so they wanted a bohemian styled wedding photo shoot for their vow renewal. After this styled vow renewal shoot they packed up like gypsies for a long term road trip across the US in their Airstream camper!

Styled shoot – Marriott Southwest, Minnesota – Elegant Candlelit Ceremony with bursts of Gold

This styled shoot was something new and intimate, an elegant classic wedding with a circle seating candlelit ceremony. Showcasing a color palette of gold, champagne, blush, and eggplant, with a gorgeous blush dress with dainty details. The circle ceremony seating and dimmed lights with candles are not very common lighting for ceremonies and although we’re huge lovers of light, we do like the dimmer intimate feel of this part of the shoot. Gold is so in right now, and the styled shoot team wanted to showcase gold accents, including gold flatware and the beautiful white opera style chairs with a white lacquer table.

Styled shoot – The Randall House, California – Enchanting Crystal Bride in California

The idea for this styled shoot began when Theresa Wooner Photography drew inspiration from the pieces handcrafted by Sarah Cosper of Lux Exteriors and the idea was then brought to Irma Green at Simply Chic Events to be developed and materialised. The vendors wanted to create something unique, jaw-dropping, and original with some influences from trends that they all adore. As they collaborated and the shoot truly began to take shape, they say that they were mesmerised by what they had fashioned: an enchanting bridal shoot complete with crystals, iridescence, and touches of black and gold.

Styled Shoot – Golden Maple Farm, Oregon – Lainey & Wyatt

Lainey and Wyatt happily tied the knot last summer on a beautiful farm in the Pacific Northwest foothills of Mt. Hood, however they had hoped for a few more bridal portraits, so they signed up for a casting call put out by some local bridal show producers and they were accepted for an afternoon of pampering and portraits! The theme was “Vintage Country Fair” which focused on lovely bright colors, vintage fabrics, and props and was beautifully coordinated by Simply Elegant Occasions with rentals by Little Red Wagon Rentals.

Styled shoot – Charles Bridge, Czech Republic

In the heart of Bohemia, now the Czech Republic, you can find old world romance on the Charles Bridge; an iconic symbol that has stood the test of time, a gateway able to take you to another time and place. The statues lining the bridge are ominous, mystical, gilded, and it’s this mystical mood that the vendors wanted to capture in this styled shoot.

The bride’s stunning Kelly Faetanini gown with gilded accents and gold leaf tiara by Eden Luxe Bridal are the perfect starting point for this styled wedding shoot. Black paper goods with gilded ink echo the ominous statues while the blush, plum, and rich wine hues of the florals, cake, and the tablescape are deeply romantic. The model bride and groom are at the center of this mystical romance – and, their tender embraces reveal a deep and abiding love… a tale as old as time and as timeless as the Charles Bridge.

Styled shoot
-Eastbank Venue & Lounge, Iowa

From Amanda at White Ivy Events:

“The inspiration for this shoot came from my experience working in Minneapolis planning weddings. I wanted to bring a more modern, industrial vibe to the Iowa wedding scene. When I saw Eastbank, I knew it would be the perfect place to pull off a shoot like this. All the modern details just came together after that. The geometric pieces, hanging cake, and mixed metals were all unique pieces that tied the theme together.”

Eastbank Venue & Lounge is located in the heart of downtown Cedar Rapids and is in an old Smulekoff’s building which has been renovated and turned into a beautiful venue.

There are so many things about this styled shoot that we love – the dress, the makeup, the flowers, the calligraphy, oh my gosh it’s all just so beautiful our little hearts are going crazy!
