The talented Amy Meyerott Photography styled and photographed this e-session with Danielle and Justin in Forest Park early this spring. Amy spotted the perfect secluded spot in the park complete with a bottle of wine, Kate Spade stemware and the most romantic sunset for this gorgeous couple.
From the Photographer:
He is the kind of guy who isn’t afraid to let the world know how much he loves her. Danielle has the same feelings towards him. She is his encourager, supporter, and kind heart by his side. When stylizing their shoot, we kept the thought of their September wedding at Chandler Hill Vineyards in mind. The pastel color palette was just perfect for the early spring light… I couldn’t resist letting it pour into my lens.
Monograms are chic and preppy and the perfect addition to any aspect of your wedding day. Monograms are especially fun on wedding day because the bride gets to begin using her new monogram and what better time to start? Not only can monograms be used as decor throughout the ceremony and reception or on stationery pieces, but monograms also make great gifts for the bridesmaids and groomsmen too. Monograms are also great to incorporate into a bridal shower. Not to mention, there are so many different ways you can make a monogram your own (not just with your letters) but by various different styles and placements. Here are a few fabulous ways to incorporate monograms into your every aspect of your wedding day!
Flowers are an intricate part of every wedding day from the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets to the boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen to the ceremony decor and reception centerpieces. There are so many different combinations that can be done with flowers to set the perfect mood for your special day, but lately, pink peonies have been blooming just about everywhere, and I love the elegant touch they add to any bouquet. Take a look at these gorgeous shades of pink peonies.
I am seeing the glow of marquee signs in a lot of weddings as of late, and I love the detail they bring to the table. These are perfect as a backdrop, an addition to a bar or sweets table or with your new monogram or new last name. How would you love to see a marquee sign incorporated into your wedding day? Here are a few fun ideas to take a look at!
Stationery is an important aspect of a wedding from save the dates to invitations to ceremony programs to menus. With spring just about here, these pretty floral stationery pieces are making their way into inboxes all around the globe. Here’s a peak at a few favorite uses of floral patterns and designs on wedding day invites and stationery. Take a look!
Statement jewelry pieces, especially necklaces in particular, are popular right now, both down the aisle and in day-to-day life. Think Bauble Bar, J. Crew, Kate Spade…Jewelry for your wedding day doesn’t necessarily need to be elegant and dainty, but it can match your style, or that of your wedding party. Don’t be afraid to accentuate your gown or your bridesmaids dresses with something fun, bold and bright. Why not wear a big, fun piece as the bride (during the reception perhaps if you want to keep it simple and more traditional during the ceremony?) or let the bridesmaids each pick a fun piece that matches their personality? Or even let your maid or matron of honor have a fun, special piece just for her to stand out. There is a lot of fun that can be had with jewelry to add a bit of color or personality to your wedding day. Have fun playing around with different options. Here are a few favorites!
With the start of spring just right around the corner (finally!), there is something so fresh and fulfilling about the sight of crisp black and white stripes whether it be used in the ribbon of your floral bouquet, on a table runner, a bow tie or other table linens, the look of the black and white stripes is so classic and beautiful. Here are a few of my favorite uses of the classic take on black and white stripes.
Gold makes a beautiful accent to just about anything, but cake? Even better! Take a look at some of these beautiful ways to incorporate gold into your wedding cake and desserts to make them look almost too good to eat (but don’t worry, they’ll still taste great too). Enjoy!
Although I’m sure many of us have spring and summer on our minds with the way this crazy Midwest winter has been, this cold, icy day has me thinking about hot chocolate. What better treat after the ceremony or at the end of the reception than a hot chocolate bar complete with marshmallows and mint flavored candy sticks (or even consider including coffee or cookies!) to warm you (and your guests) up during your winter wedding? Hot chocolate isn’t just for the holiday season. We’ve just got a few weeks left of this cold season, so we might as well embrace it, right? Warm up with a cup of hot cocoa and these pretty hot chocolate bar ideas below.
