Hamilton Musical inspired wedding bouquet

Hamilton Musical wedding inspiration in Columbus, Ohio

Hamilton the Musical is coming to Columbus, Ohio. Rejoice!

Confession- I’m obsessed with the Hamilton musical. Because of that, I wanted to give other “Hamilton” obsessed brides modern, fine-art inspiration. I wanted to give them ideas they could incorporate in their own weddings. A group of talented, like-minded wedding vendors in Ohio joined me, and together we retold the Hamilton story through the lens of modern wedding planning. The results are unbelievably romantic. In fact, this Hamilton Musical wedding inspiration is one of my favorite creative wedding projects to date!

Read on to see how this wedding editorial captures the feel of a modern wedding and the surreal feeling of Revolutionary America brought to life by Hamilton on stage.

Hamilton inspired wedding details

First, we chose a color pallet inspired by the musical: a neutral parchment color for Hamilton’s excessive writing, revolutionary American blues, and the tawny brown of Hamilton’s post-military coat. We also included the different colors associated with the Schuyler sisters. There are teal and robin’s egg blue for Eliza, rich pink for Angelica, and gold and yellow for Peggy.

For fun, Alexander and Eliza appear on place cards (with Angelica… and Peggy.) As if in preparation for a toast, there is a vignette with “may you always be satisfied” inscribed on parchment. One of Alexander’s letters to Eliza is written out and paired alongside a quill pen. The invitation suite includes antique postage featuring the Marquis de LafayetteLastlya beautiful Susie Saltzman engagement ring is pictured with a photo of The Grange, where Hamilton wed Eliza.

Hamilton’s wedding was in December of 1780. Our team curated antique Colonial pieces like a dressing mirror, English china, bone dice, a fan, and a musket to reflect that date. To keep it fresh, we joined these true antiques with period-inspired modern pieces, such as the engagement ring from Susie Saltzman and the beautiful handmade silk cravat from the Lesser Bear.

Hamilton inspired Florals

The ladies of State + Arrow and Old Slate Farm are responsible for the amazing florals. Both florists looked to American Colonial paintings for Hamilton Musical wedding inspiration, and used flowers that would have actually been available to Colonial brides. In order to honor the Hamilton’s December wedding date, floral designs included pomegranates and persimmons.

State + Arrow’s lush arrangements are imbued with the romance of the Hamilton story. A sweeping bouquet adorned with a wide silk ribbon is the envy of any bride. Meanwhile, viewers are transported to another world by the stunning installation of greenery and florals by Old Slate Farm. To create this look, Katie installed a tree in her living room to build from. Without a doubt, the florals from this day are some of the most stunning creations I have ever seen.

The dress and models were directly inspired by the musical and traditional colonial style. The Carolina Herrera dress was the perfect blend of modern simplicity and elegant colonial details. Our Eliza’s white hair color was trendy and modern, but also reminiscent of the powdered wig styles of the period.

Juniper Rooftop Wedding Inspiration- gorgeous ideas for 614 Brides

Gorgeous, Audrey Hepburn Inspired Bridal Editorial for Juniper Rooftop in Columbus, Ohio

As seen on Green Wedding Shoes

This wedding editorial was designed to inspire brides with the stunning view of the Columbus Skyline from Juniper Rooftop.  Along with Adria from State + Arrow, we set out to create gorgeous Juniper Rooftop wedding inspiration for our local 614 brides. 

We started with a warm and feminine color palette to soften the crisp, architectural feel of the space at Juniper Rooftop. Hues of rose, yellow, burgundy and blush evoked the vibe of a rooftop party in spring. A blush colored satin gown, paired with classic hair and makeup were utterly romantic. The hand painted cake was also the perfect nod to modern, romantic style.

Finally, Adria’s circular floral centerpiece was probably one of my favorite parts of the shoot. Due to the airiness of the design, it allowed for a perfectly framed view of downtown.

An earthy autumn wedding at Oak Grove, Jorgenson Farms

 

Aimee + Andrew’s earthy green and white autumn wedding at Jorgensen Farm’s Oak Grove was a beautiful, joyful event.  I loved creating bespoke details for Aimee’s earthy, bohemian wedding vision. It was important to infuse the day with as many thoughtful details possible, because Aimee is a wedding photographer herself. For the escort cards I carefully calligraphed in white ink, filled with sprigs of fresh greenery from State + Arrow. Real, stretched leather canvases were used for signage elsewhere. Above all, the earthy green and white color palette was highlighted by gorgeous harvest golds sprinkled throughout. For instance, the rich tones of The Lesser Bear’s hand dyed silk created a gorgeous pop of color on the ceremony arch.

As a result, this October wedding felt autumnal, but  still fresh!

Brides will love this Rockmill Brewery Summer Wedding

Nick + Allie’s bohemian summer wedding in Lancaster Ohio

Brides, you will love this Rockmill Brewery summer wedding. First of all, Rockmill Brewery is one of Central Ohio’s best wedding venues, hence it was the perfect locale for this bohemian summer wedding. Because Allie has incredible taste (she’s a store director for Madewell) packing her wedding full of unique details was essential. Bespoke white farm tables, dancing in the grass, and eating churros out of pretty paper cups are just some of the details that elevate this wedding above the rest.

It’s all in the wedding details

Due to the wedding being at the end of August, we chose to infuse the day with “back to school in the 70’s” vibes here and there. Their seating chart was made from a letter folk letter board, and stadium marquee cards were used as table numbers.

We decided against using any specific wedding color palette, opting instead for black and white, accented by greenery. For that reason, Adria from State + Arrow incorporated whatever colors felt right into the floral designs.

Read on to see how Allie + Nick’s full team of vendors made their wedding an unforgettable, magical night.

A friend of the bride and I collaborated on these perfect watercolor wedding invitations. Aggie turned my simple watercolors into incredible, hand-lettered works of art!

View More: http://jennyhaas.pass.us/allieandnickFor a unique wedding send-off, I created a “just married” banner the groom  to carry. Guests also had individual “yay” flags to wave as the bride and groom raced back down the aisle after saying “i do”

Table assignments were listed on this unique seating chart on a letter folk letter board. It was probably one of my favorite details due to its obvious nod to the back-to-school season.

An alternative to wedding cake that complimented the taco bar menu? Churros!

Conclusion

Above all, these two sweet souls wanted to put their value of a Christ-centered marriage above any other detail. Seeing this wedding featured in The Knot was amazing, however I am more thankful for the lifelong friendships formed with Allie and her vendors as a result.  Its why I love what I do!

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
