Copper Inspired Wedding Shoot from House of Earnest

Metallics are sort of the cool kid on the block when it comes to weddings. They add a bit of edge to anything they’re paired with and are finding their way into wedding palettes all across the board. And while we happen to be a teensy bit partial to gold (we’ll gild almost anything!), House of Earnest has officially proven cooper can be equally as elegant. You’ll find every detail of this metallic mashup with a gorgeous bride styled by Lisa Sullivan Events in Benjamin Lowry’s full gallery right here.

From House of Earnest… Move over gold! Copper is a beautiful new metallic that pairs well with white and ivory as well as with naturals and blush tones. In this styled wedding shoot, Erin from House of Earnest was inspired by The beauty of the autumn season and how well rich green and light orange-pink play off of gorgeous copper for a more unique fall event.

Strong and earthy olive branches and magnolia leaves ground the light-as-air garden roses while metallic copper hobnail glass and lengths of tulle and lace add the perfect pinch of femininity. Hand scripted guest names float on panels of copper, the wedding invitation sweet is adorned with the same mix of soft and colorful florals with hints of copper.

From Lily Glass Photography… I had the pleasure of photographing Arthur + Reika Kadlec’s simple yet stunning summer wedding. They were married during an intimate family ceremony in an old stone chapel in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, on June 8th with a picnic reception at Art’s childhood home to follow. Reika’s dress was a labor of love as she searched for the perfect style, finally creating one herself pairing a short lace dress from Madewell with a custom-made sheer skirt.

Every detail of their wedding day was meaningful and intentional — from the vintage china to grandma’s linens, to the juicy delicious peach favors their friends from The Peach Truck brought up from Nashville, to their choosing a caterer that provides not only delicious food but also social justice (Freedom a la cart).

Art and Reika have such a sincere love that encourages and sharpens those with whom they come into contact — their love makes you want to love better, to love genuinely. And so it was no surprise that their wedding was a celebration to begin their lives together, but also a downright party during which they danced and hugged and high-fived the friends and family that they hold so dear. There were folks from all over the world and never have I seen wedding guests intermingle so well as this evening, which I think testifies greatly to the kind of folks that Art+Reika are.

Seriously, everything this girl touches is golden, but when you start out with a wedding that is knock your socks off stunning then add Arielle’s seasoned eye into the mix, it’s golden and then some. Not to mention, the bride’s sister is Lauren Chism Fine Papers - swoon. I’m 100% completely obsessed with this wedding!

From the photographer… In the gorgeous light of pastoral Aurora, OH, Carley and John married in a traditional ceremony surrounded by 230 of their nearest and dearest in a wedding that was a perfect blend of traditional, rustic and elegant.

Carley is fortunate enough to have brilliant stationer, Lauren Chism, as her older sister which meant that her paper suite was flawless – a mixture of charming gilded calligraphy and a beautiful patterned paisley letterpress.

The colors of the day continued the theme of muted golds, and silvers (as highlighted by the 1920′s inspired bridesmaid’s cocktail dresses,) and coral accents like those seen in Carley’s elegant Prada shoes. These elegant touches were a dramatic compliment to her delicate lace gown. I was absolutely obsessed with her bouquet: a combination of rustic herbs (lavender, and other seasonal offerings,) with the classic elegance of peonies and traditional ivy. Needless to say it smelled divine!

Following their deeply emotional and heartfelt ceremony, the couple found themselves whisked away to the reception under a shower of tossed lavender in a fabulous vintage Cadillac.

Their ballroom reception featured centerpieces that seemed effortlessly handpicked from a perfectly manicured wildflower and herb garden, a trio of cakes which appeared frosted by hand with decadent buttercream, and more beautiful calligraphy touches by Courtnie Johnson of Poppy Pedals.

I felt so honored to be a part of capturing this beautiful love story on film. As the cloudy sky burst into a gorgeous Ohio sunset right as we began their portraits I felt that I was part of something truly miraculous! Congrats Carley and John!
