With this sparkly gold shoot, Jessica of Kill’s Custom Creations + Emily Jane Photography glammed up Michigan’s Old Town Marquee, a spacious loft with huge windows and exposed brick walls. For the theme, Emily explains, We weren’t afraid to put gold next to silver or rose gold on gold. There were no rules. The end result? A glittery vignette both elegant and playful…
How fun is this gold calligraphy by Paper & Honey?! They went with this look for all the paper products throughout.
Amy + Philipp met in business school, so when they got engaged they approached the whole thing “like any MBA would”, with research and efficiency. They booked Brooklyn Winery within a week – knowing how competitive NY is – found a dreamy dress, then let a whole slew of talented Brooklyn-based vendors run with their theme. Sounds like the way to do it!
The bride explains, We love the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island each summer, and got inspired by the paper moon photo booth they have. Between that and obsessive Downton Abbey viewing, the vintage art deco theme made perfect sense for us. Thankfully, our friends got into the idea and we went unabashedly theme-y. I think we pulled it off without being kitschy! Our other constraint was using (almost) all Brooklyn-based vendors and vendors with a commitment to sustainability and ethical business practices.
Three things totally made the venue for them: 1) it’s beautiful 2) an amazing staff, and 3) delicious, family-style dining.
Love the unique birdcage details.
With so many out of town guests – neither Amy nor Philipp are from NY – they made a whole weekend of it with the Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn Brewery, a McCarren Hotel pool day, and rehearsal dinner + brunch. And of course, the after party. Fun!
Happy Friday, cakies! Hope your weekends are all as sunny as the farmers market e-sesh we’ve got for ya today. Shelly of Shelly Goodman Photography captured PJ + Jillian in the most natural, yet beautifully styled way, complete with a picnic, pie, and vintage props, all at St. Louis’ Historic Soulard Farmers Market (founded in 1779!).
Aren’t these two the cutest? They walked around the farmers market gathering food and flowers for their evening picnic, and ended up with an awesome spread to enjoy and photograph.
Shelly says, We found a dreamy little spot for the picnic. You wouldn’t guess it, but it was by some old railroad tracks, a busy street, a rusting old billboard sign, and a self-serve car wash. But it was perfect – the sun was setting and illuminating the tiny bits of cottonwood flowing in the breeze.
Their fashion? Hipster-urban. They sure do wear it well!
