Styled Shoot: A Colorful Wood Themed Wedding | Artwork Network Denver

By Season Hurd | | Comment

You’ve heard me say before that Artwork Network weddings are always some of my favorites because they are colorful, original, and just plain great. Apparently styled shoots there are no exception! This wood themed wedding rocks my world! Every piece of this shoot is on point and the details so well thought out. Nothing seems overwhelming and there is excellent cohesion. The theme was fully extrapolated without feeling corny (just woody…okay I’m corny). They achieved this by using the wooden elements in all the right places – and one completely unexpected one with that cool bow tie! And I have to say that I’m impressed to find out that Kristina Marshall (Kristina Lynn Photography) is a triple threat as a great photographer, designer, and stationery making genius. What a renaissance woman to have on your team! Such a lovely thing to have a vision and be able to not only create it, but capture it on film just as your imagined. That’s the dream man…

This shoot started as a collaboration between Jenae from Flowers Made Unique and I. Her wooden arrangements were the initial inspiration. We came up with the idea of a hipster inspired theme where we could bring in different wooden/natural aspects but also tie in an urban feel. Artwork Network, with its mix of white walls and exposed brick, provided the perfect setting for the shoot. An added bonus, the artist who’s show was going on at the time had pieces that fit with the shoot’s color scheme. I decided to use one of Artwork Network’s metal tables for the main tablescape and their metal bar for the dessert table. I loved how they brought in an urban vibe and a great juxtaposition with the vintage pieces that were used [A Vintage Affair]. The white chairs [Chairs with Character] and the white table settings were a nice contrast against the dark metal table while the cornflower blue napkins gave a little pop of color. The dessert table was an elegant display of traditional candies in beautiful apothecary jars, vintage accents, and pops of color through the delicious bundtlet and bundtini cakes by Nothing Bundt Cakes.To carry on with the wooden inspiration, I created a custom wedding invitation suite, menu cards and signs that I printed on real wood veneer.The bride’s dress was a custom creation by local designer, Nikki Hascall, and the bride wore a beautiful head piece by Kitty Mae Millinery to complete the look. Since this was a hipster themed shoot we wanted the groom to have a laid back but polished look so he wore a simple button down shirt accented with striped suspenders, wooden bow tie and colorful boutonniere. Makeup was provided by The Pretty Bride Shop and hair styles were created by Eileen Kantor. – Kristina Marshall, Kristina Lynn Photography & Design

Styled Shoot: Romantic Bridal Boudoir

By Season Hurd | | Comment

Happy Valentine’s Day my beloved Colorado Courtship Blog readers! I decided to give you guys a little something special instead of the regular Floral Friday today in honor of the holiday. But rest assured, this dreamy bridal boudoir session also has beautiful florals.  I’m truly honored to have it on the site because it feels straight out of a bridal magazine! Rebecca Marie Photography’s body of work is incredible and she did a great job capturing the art of the other vendors. This particular shoot is so soft and warm – two things that really lend romance in photos of this nature. The indoor objects like the beautiful tufted couch and chandelier make it feel like the model is preparing for her wedding day but magically transported to a golden field. I’m especially in love with the final shots where the bride captures the sunshine in her lantern. The whole shoot feels like captured sunshine to me. A lovely vendor collaboration to inspire you on this holiday for sure. =)

A note about bridal boudoir: Some of my favorite wedding photos are of the bride in her lingerie before the wedding. If you will have time that day, by all means ask your photographer to capture you in that soft and reflecting state before the pomp and circumstance begins. If you won’t have that kind of time (most of us), schedule a session with your lingerie and your dress like the one I have for you today. The boudoir photos are a great teaser for your groom on the big day and the extra bridal gown photos are always welcome. Seeing yourself ready for the big day in photos may also help you to refine your wedding day look. And if you are sporting Spanx for the real thing, at least you can pretend to be a pretty paper doll with delicate wedding underthings for awhile. It’s an all around win!
