A Moody, bohemian Strongwater wedding you’ll love

Sasha + Corey

Sasha and Corey’s moody, bohemian Strongwater wedding will always remains one of my favorite projects.  Due to Sasha’s daring and incredible taste, and not to mention remarkable beauty, it was an honor to style her wedding. The bride described her desired wedding aesthetic as “Salem in the Spring”  as a result of it being held during Halloween weekend.  Read on to see how we made this moody, bohemian Strongwater wedding vision come to life.sashacorey-262-2sashacorey-441sashacorey-554sashacorey-934

How killer is this crocheted dress? The fringe was exquisite.

Crafted by the talented Kirsten of Bear Roots Floral, Sasha’s bouquet and floral crown (complete with bird skull) were a bohemian wedding dream. Furthermore, the naturally dyed silk ribbon made another perfect accent for her moody floral designs.

Some people have doughnut walls with long johns. In contrast, feminist brides have doughnut walls with long joans.

Greenhouse wedding inspiration in Columbus, Ohio

Last spring, some of my favorite creative vendors and I teamed up to create earthy, greenhouse wedding inspiration in Columbus, Ohio. Our desire was to give brides inspiration to bring the outdoors in, therefore the McCullough greenhouse provided the perfect setting.

First of all, we wanted to work with an unexpected take on the traditional spring wedding color palette. Because of this, we used shades of blush pink and pale blue, along with pops of mimosa yellow and deep burgundy. As a result, we created an environment so lush and romantic, no one would have guessed it was a blustery snowy day!Greenhouse wedding inspiration, greenhouse wedding columbus ohiogreenhouse wedding inspiration, greenhouse wedding, columbus ohio wedding

I loved how Adria from State + Arrow added a deep burgundy to our color palette. It was so unexpected and exotic, and it worked so well!


Alaina from CheerUp Press designed all of beautiful paper goods. Greenhouse inspired stationary ranged from hand-lettered watercolor place cards to a matching menu and above all, a stunning invitation. Her talent is unreal!


Gorgeous naturally dyed silk table runners came from The Lesser Bear.
