Love + Light Styled

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…StyledShoot-132StyledShoot-28To 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.

IMG_0892Drawing 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.

IMG_1456IMG_1010The 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. IMG_1389The bride’s stunning hair and makeup by Angie Warren Artistry and Sarah W. from the Bride BarIMG_1014Stunning peachy florals from Heather at Evergreen Flower Co. in Columbus, Ohio.IMG_0922-2One 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.

Waite for Us- Ben + Kara

I can’t begin to express how much I loved working with Ben + Kara for their wedding day. Their love for each other is so sweet, deeply rooted, and evident in every part of their planning and throughout the event. Out of their love for their Alma Mater, Ohio State, the couple chose a palette of scarlet + grey, but accented it with pinks, peaches, and greens to create the perfect summer color scheme. Their Buckeye pride was sprinkled throughout the rest of the day as well- Carmen Ohio was played during the ceremony, and Kara + Ben were surprised with a visit from the OSU Alumni marching band as well! Here are just a few of my favorite details from such a wonderful day- all provided by their amazing photographer- Susie Marie Photography (be sure to check her out!)View More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-usWe wanted to honor Ben’s request for an invitation that wasn’t overly girly. The result was this sweet and simple monogrammed invitation in black and white- with colorful envelopes to give it an extra pop, and a watercolor floral envelope liner- which you can see here.  The overall vibe of the suite was dubbed “Wes Anderson at a garden party” (and Ben and Kara were BOTH happy.)View More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-usView More: http://susiemariephotography.pass.us/waite-for-uspronoviasgowndetails.jpg

Sasha + Corey

Sasha and Corey were a creative dream to serve on their wedding day. Sasha’s daring and incredible taste, not to mention remarkable beauty, made her wedding a stylist’s dream come true.  Keep reading to learn more about how this dream team of vendors and myself brought Sasha’s Halloween weekend, “Salem in the Spring” wedding vibes to life. sashacorey-262-2sashacorey-441sashacorey-554sashacorey-934

How killer is this crocheted dress from Rue De Seine Bridal? The fringe was exquisite.

Sasha’s incredible bouquet and floral crown (complete with bird skull) were a bohemian dream, crafted by the talented Kirsten of Bear Roots Floral.

sashacorey-2435sashacorey-2082 We crafted this installation with geode slices, beautiful feathers, and foraged greenery from Kirsten so that guests could dance under what I called “mother nature’s disco ball.”

For Sasha, I created a watercolor lunar calendar for the seating chart with guest’s names calligraphed on individual phases of the moon.  The hand made dip-dyed table numbers coordinated with the phases of the moon as well.

Eden: Indoors

A year ago, some of my dearest creative babes in Columbus teamed up to create this earthy, garden inspired shoot. Our desire was to give brides inspiration to bring Eden indoors- and this beautiful greenhouse provided the perfect place. We wanted to convey an unexpected take on a spring wedding color palette, and we did that starting with blush pink, pale blue and then adding in mimosa yellow and deep burgundy. The result was an environment so lush and romantic, one would have never guessed it was a blustery snowy day outside!styledshoot-12styledshoot-15
