Happy Friday, friends! It’s been an amazing week, with lots of celebrations as well as teaching my Chasing Light course – which went so well! I can’t believe we’re back into the swing of wedding season already, but we are! I just had to share this amazing styled photo shoot that I was a part of before time slips away. Now that it’s spring and wedding season, these details are so inspiring right now!
My amazing friend Carianne Gunn from Emerald Events planned this shoot – she had a vision for a modern, bright shoot in Rochester in an industrial space. We both love working at The Arbor Loft, so it was the perfect place to fit the vision! Then we finessed it further, both inspired by Anthropologie’s blue agate cheese boards. We wanted to add a pop of color and Carianne picked my fave, peach – which goes amazingly with the bright navy blues!
Carianne found all these amazing vendors to work with us in the Central New York area, from Brown Built Rentals custom tables, to Revival Rentals, to Emma Bauso who made us geometric ombre styled invitations, to Lovely Bride in Rochester which had the perfect Bohemian style dresses! All the details came together flawlessly, including our florals from Moonrise Floral Design and cakes by Scratch Bake Shop!
Carianne even made DIY backdrops and a chandelier out of yarn – she is seriously incredible!
As for models, I was SO excited to have my past bride and groom Jade and Steve model for me! They are the sweetest and recently moved to Rochester from the Hudson Valley area – so this was perfect in every way. I love having real couples model, because I always feel that real emotion is so much more powerful and important than just style! (As beautiful as that can be!) Jade’s sister also modeled for us as a bridesmaid which was so perfect – these ladies are just gorgeous!
These colors and details are so impeccable – Carianne always does such an amazing job planning from every angle!! I love her vision, use of modern design and bright color – it’s such a breath of fresh air into the wedding industry!
Take a look below to see all of the amazing vendors who contributed their time and talent!
I hope this inspires your weekend, friends!!
