Our gracious hosts, the Dublin Arts Center. I always call it The Castle.
The vine scarf below wasn’t created with weddings in mind, yet how cute is it paired with a simple white dress and a bright bouquet of green and peach flowers?
I wasn’t immediately sold on this purple piece being worn by brides until I saw it in action. WOW. How much better is this bright and sparkly sweater when compared to the overused colored ribbon around the waist?
Our two lovely models did an amazing job on a really hot day, they took it all in stride AND looked incredible.
The Dublin Arts Center is my favorite wedding location. It’s intimate with lots of light streaming in, a spiral staircase, tons of lawn and shaded areas, a staircase out back, and hello, it’s a castle. Well, not technically, but still. Not to mention all the beautiful art exhibits they host. Check it out on a normal weekday, there’s always something amazing on display.
These soft and fluffy sweaters immediately reminded me of cotton candy, I got the pairing stuck in my head and had to bring them together. Luckily we were able to find cotton candy at 9am on a Thursday morning at Giant Eagle Market District. Besides, I couldn’t call myself Photo Kitchen without having SOME food make an appearance on set.
All of the beautiful flowers you see were designed by another one of my favorite clients, Regina of Natural Designs. Everything she creates is clean and fresh. She sources flowers from all over–local farms, New York vendors, and often straight from her own back yard. Easy to work with, creative, and thoughtful, I’m always excited to see what she’ll do next.
This was one of my favorite pairings. The makeup, simple dress, bubble necklace…all came together to perfectly highlight this rosette bag and collared sweater.
These handmade handkerchiefs can be ordered with custom embroidery. Husband and wife initials, wedding date, a personalized note from grandma…What a beautiful gift for the wedding day. Throw in a little blue thread and you’ve got yourself something blue.
I loved this shot, it reminds me of a promo image for Mad Men a few seasons back.
Like I said, every piece is versatile, to be worn long past the wedding day. Which piece is your favorite?
