I was beyond thrilled when Ashley West and Allison Leonard approached me about styling their Love + Light photographer’s workshop. These two women have a heart to share and teach their craft to their fellow photographers, and it was such a joy to see them caring for the creative community in Columbus in that way. Check out their photos from this amazing day below…To showcase the two beautiful spaces at Oak Grove, we chose to split the shoot into two seperate looks. An elegant traditional style was chosen for inside the white barn, the bride wore a satin gown from B.Loved Bridal, and we opted for a classic tuxedo for the groom. The tablescape reflected a more traditional style as well: featuring a linen table cloth accented by a gorgeous velvet table runner hand sewn and dyed by local fiber artist, The Lesser Bear.
In the greenhouse space of the venue- we chose a more bohemian, summer hothouse vibe.
Drawing inspiration from sweet summer gardens, southern peach farms, and the wear and tear of natural elements- the color story for both shoot featured Copper and Verdigris (the greenish patina that aged copper developes.) Signage was made with copper sheeting and hand aged to achieve that perfect greenish hue.
The tablescape outdoors featured an unexpected color palette- combining peach and blush tones with yellows, copper, and sea glass. The Lesser Bear created beautiful taupe silk napkins and a shibori dyed table runner, as well as hand making the beeswax candles! The menu from Cheerup Press tied it all together, featuring a moth and a hand painted deckled edge. The bride’s stunning hair and makeup by Angie Warren Artistry and Sarah W. from the Bride Bar. Stunning peachy florals from Heather at Evergreen Flower Co. in Columbus, Ohio.One of my favorite details- the paper goods from Alaina at Cheerup Press. Alaina created two seperate paper suites using our copper and virdigris color palette. Printed on beautiful paper from Fabulous Fancy Pants, The more traditional invitation included a hawndrawn crest featuring a wax seal monogram in the center.
There were so many incredible details to this shoot- please check out the all of the amazing participants below. I cannot say enough amazing things about Ashley + Allison, who poured their time and efforts into such an amazing teaching opportunity.
