Michelle came to me a little over a year ago with a blank canvas, good taste, and a personality that you can’t help but fall in love with. From our first cup of tea to our last, this little lady stole a special place in my heart and as I share these stunning images today I’m reminded of how much fun we had putting together her big day. Since I was the first and only vendor she booked we had our work cut out for us. In our initial design meetings I learned that the couple was attracted to modern and whimsical elements with hints of rustic thrown in from time to time. They wanted to create a timeless and elegant evening where their personalities were present in all the details. My team and I started scouting venues, working up design concepts, and curating mood boards to get the ball rolling.
We ended up choosing The Loft On Pine for a handful of reasons. It accommodated our projected guest count of 200, its exposed brick walls and hard wood floors were the perfect modern meets rustic vibe, and the historic charm helped create a warm and personal atmosphere that the couple were drawn to. Once we locked down the date and venue it was time to secure the big ticket items. Michelle’s sister surprised her by gifting Jasmine Star as the photographer which was exciting. I’ve admired Jasmines work for quite some time and to have the opportunity to work alongside of her was a treat to say the least. The engagement shoot above is also from her and I just adore how cute these two are!
Michelle fell in love with Alise from Sweet Marie Designs‘ portfolio. The Loft on Pine is a rather large space and so I knew we wanted to go heavy on the florals to fill in each area with some stunning blooms. Ultimately it paid off and Michelle was ecstatic about her bouquet.
The wedding day was amazing and I couldn’t be happier for Michelle and Kevin! I mean, I cried when Michelle said her vows. Not really a shocker for me but I truly had a blast making this vision come to life. And their dog, Bartok…let’s just say I almost dognapped him. Congrats, Michelle and Kevin! Your wedding was one of the many highlights of 2014!
