I love a girl who can rock a flannel and a wedding dress. It proves to be an amazing combo in this snow-filled Bridal shoot captured by Apples & Honey Photography. It’s so cute it almost, almost has me wishing for one last snow storm; emphasis on the almost. See even more right here.

Allie and I had talked at length about doing a simple bridal shoot with an incredibly relaxed feel that tied together her engagement photos and her gorgeous wedding day. Brides love any chance to put back on that perfect dress and I wanted to give Allie the perfect reason to do just that!
The bride wore the red plaid shirt from her engagement session and the gorgeous lace gown from her wedding this past August! Something about the crisp white snow covered pine trees made for the *perfect* backdrop! I knew I wanted to add a bit more color with a halo for her hair and a wintery bouquet of sorts. A trip to Michaels and some DIY action was all it took to create the red berry head piece and the wintery themed bouquet; which was made up of golden branches, shimmery artichokes, white flowers, and red berries, all wrapped together with classic jute. Snow can be magical to shoot in, and brides are beautiful long after their wedding day! I hope this session showcases just that!
Fall weddings and cozy cardigans go hand-in-hand. That’s a fact. Just take a peek at this golden hued affair from the lens of Todd Pellowe. It’s a celebration of all things autumn with plenty of natural elements thrown in for good measure. The gallery is bursting with inspiration for fall and DIY brides alike, and don’t miss Ben Tamir Studios’ film to watch it all unfold.
From the Bride… Evan and I had some of our first and favorite dates at Bryan Park while we were in college together at Indiana University, so when Evan proposed he popped the question in that very park a year after we had graduated and come back in town to celebrate homecoming weekend. So when we were deciding on a venue, using the spot under the very tree he proposed at in Bryan Park was a simple choice.
The whole idea for the wedding was centered around that spot in the fall. I wanted warm fall colors and a fun and casual feel for our guests. The reception venue at a local horse farm just south of campus fit right in with our idea. The rolling hills and the trees full of leaves changing color provided the perfect backdrop for the evening.
Our planner and florist helped bring the rest of our ideas to life with a mixture of warm mustard yellow tones, different shades of gray, and natural wood colors and textures combined with bold graphic designs in the table runners (hand-sewn by my mom), a ribbon chandelier, as well as contemporary floral arrangements to bring a more modern edge to the rustic venue. A DIY ceremony backdrop, Bloomington landmarks as table names, caramel apples for favors, a pie bar for dessert, a rice krispie groom’s cake, homemade corn hole boards (painted by my sister-in-law), a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, a custom invitation suite made by a good friend, and homemade dog treats at dinner tables for our Brittany Spaniel, Ruby were some of the additions that made our wedding feel fun and personal to us.
Lake Michigan is the prettiest body of water I’ve ever been to. Hands down, and I know that is a big statement, but it is true, and you can see for yourself with this wedding from Estera Events. Captured by Jacqui Cole Photography, the wedding was the perfect toes in the sand, warm lake breeze, baby’s breath and sunsets kind of day.
From the planner… Liz and Charley were married in the sands of Lake Michigan at a family home. With a lakeside ceremony and a dinner under a beautiful tent filled with chandeliers in the sand, everything about this wedding was romantic. Surrounded by an intimate gathering of family and friends, not even a little bit of rain could have any negative effect! The bridesmaids carried bouquets of baby’s breath and wildflowers and the groomsmen swapped boutonnieres for Sperry’s and Khakis. Every little detail came together to create one beautiful celebration for Liz and Charley. Liz and Charley are the definition of dream clients and we’re honored to have been part of their incredible day.
