I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with some of my favorite people for this styled shoot at Bakersfield in Over the Rhine. We wanted to do something unique and fun. Marti, of Marti's Floral Design styled the shoot and had this to say about it...Off the beaten path, not the typical love. Not the typical bride. That was our inspiration of this. Focusing on the love. Even if it is not the one that everyone sees as being normal. The casual wedding taken past the mason jars. We found so much inspiration in the casualness of a quickie wedding and how stylish it could still be. Bohemian meets Masculinity. We wanted to show that both could still be present in a wedding. Something to reflect both of them. Lace and leather. Guns and flowers. Not everything has to be typical for a wedding. Make it reflect the couple that you are and not a formality. Caroline and Jesse are the perfect image of the couple today. Off the beaten path, showing the love, and forgoing the typical wedding.
My first wedding of the year couldn't have been a more perfect one. Allison and Josh were married the elegant Bell Event Centre. Allison was a stunning bride. I adore how much Josh let her know over and over again how beautiful she looked. It was a gorgeous spring day surrounded by lots of smiles and so much love. I was truly wowed by how gracious Allison, Josh, and all of their family was. Thank you so much for including me in your special day!
