A Midwest girl born and raised, wife to my college sweetheart, tried and true extrovert, and a loyal daughter, sister & friend.
I believe that my purpose is to serve others through creativity, inspiration and unconditional love – and as an Event Planner & Designer, I’m so grateful to live that purpose day in and day out.
I’m passionate about making a positive impact on those I serve and building fruitful relationships with my clients that turn into cherished friendships for years to come.
Staged at the Cathedral of Learning on University of Pittburgh’s campus, this feminine fall wedding shoot was inspired by the delicate beaded details and feminine silhouettes of two separate gowns at Lex and Lynne Bridal Boutique. The setting for the shoot provided beautiful stone architecture and an old world feel to give our imagery depth as well as allow the dresses to take the limelight and show in a bold way.
The goal was to create a romantic and whimsical editorial aimed at the style-savvy bride who isn’t afraid to push trend and color boundaries. With the notion that fall is primarily filled with Burgundy, oranges, and deeper color palettes, I wanted to highlight a softer side to this season. I chose a feminine fall color palette mixed with peaches, reds, orange, deep mauves, and creams to compliment the two effortlessly chic and detailed one of a kind gowns.
Everything from the loose and natural tucked updo, to the acrylic chairs, table numbers and place cards, to the casual moccasins and drip cake were selected to highlight current trend, show how to bring these trends to life with in the fall season all the while still eluding femininity, style, and romance.
This feminine fall wedding is being featured on Once Wed today, and after a long 4 months of keeping these pictures tucked away on our computers, we’re finally able to share this beautiful gallery with you all.
