For months I have had a secret. I have planning this styled session with some amazing local vendors. Together, we created this beautiful spring romance wedding session. In my mind, I had blush, grey, gold, and champagne colors, feminine florals, lace, traditional meets modern. The fantastic friendors I collaborated with transformed my vision into reality.
I held the session in part at Something Old Dayton inside the Linden-Davis Building. The space is a beautiful old warehouse with hardwood floors, industrial pipes, large windows, a beautiful large white wall, and gorgeous natural light. It is filled with vintage items you can rent, and are available for your use with the rented space. The table, chairs, small items, and styling was all thanks to Something Old!
Those amazing florals were arranged by Sherwood Florist. Filled with roses and peonies. Loose and romantic. They were perfect.
Those laser cut wood accents were the ultimate last minute details added by Avenue21. They are this great little boutique in Troy and Springboro. If you haven't checked them out yet, I suggest you run right over there. They are appropriately located both north and south of Dayton.
Ivory House Creative supplied the flawless invitations, place cards, and menus. Kenzie, the owner, is extremely talented, and always creates the most amazing stationary products!
Now let's talk desserts! That cake was constructed by the ultimate baker, Chrissy Waydo with Sugar Bums Homemade Desserts. She created this modern square cake, which was an immaculate center to our dessert table.
Those macarons on the left? Perfectly blush colored. Gorgeous! Michelle's Macarons are the most heavenly french cookies! Place your order now for some melt in your mouth deliciousness.
After our time at Something Old Dayton, the models (Rachael and Daniel) and I headed to Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark to capture some breathtaking outdoor photos of the couple.
The tux was provided by Price Stores in downtown Dayton. Craig, the formal wear manager, was so easy to work with. He steered us to the perfect tux style, tie color, and shoes to match my vision.
That gorgeous hair was styled by Karlie Jones. I partner with her on many of my collaborations, and she is always amazing!
Makeup was provided by Jeri St. Clair. She created a soft, romantic look that was a perfect pairing to the style.
Stunning necklace and earrings were borrowed from Michelle Williams with Plunder Jewelry. She carries beautiful pieces with a vintage feel.
This whole experience was so amazing, and I have created fantastic relationships to help future brides construct their perfect wedding day. I hope you enjoy the images as much I enjoyed capturing them!
