1. Sophisticated Vintage Chicago Wedding at University of Chicago’s Bond Chapel

    When I first saw Cassie & Stefan's utterly stunning Chicago wedding I completely thought it was a styled shoot.  I was beyond floored when I realized it wasn't indeed the handy work of a team of inspired creatives, but instead, one ultra stylish couple that simply oozes chic vintage perfection!  Set at the iconic University of Chicago's Bond Chapel, this Chicago wedding is all about class and elegance.  As if ripped from the pages of Vogue itself, Cassie's Rime Arodaky wedding gown lays the most gorgeous of ground work for her sophisticated vintage wedding style.  Driving the look home, she opted for a retro updo, enhancing the throw back feel, perfectly accented by a floral applique veil, also from Rime Arodaky.  Keeping the vintage Chicago wedding vibe going, Cassie's dad handcrafted a unique parlor style backdrop to their sweetheart table, turning the event space at Prairie Productions into a whole new world.  From there mauve velvet tablecloths were draped over tables, while lush garlands of green topped with a mix of berry hued blooms...

  2. Edgy Bohemian Bride Style In Unique Locale

    Today's gorgeous bridal inspiration is fun for a few reasons!  For starters, the locale.  I am sure by now you have seen various takes on the ugly location challenge, today's styled shoot however, takes it to a whole new level of astonishing.  Like a page right out of the chic bohemian bride manual, we find a long tressed beauty who ever so elegantly turns the world of a parking garage into her own private oasis.  Featuring a combination of a few bohemian bride looks, the tying theme to each is lace detailing allowing the hair to run free.  This shoot alone should serve as a beacon to ever real couple, to every photographer, that says they simply didnt have anywhere good enough to take amazing portraits.  I very much disagree with that sentiment and I think you'll see why...

  3. Arkansas’s Dandy Roll Print Shop Vintage Indie Wedding

    If ever there was a love song to indie wedding seekers, this wonderful styled shoot from wedding photographer Caitlin Trickett Photography at the uniquely cool Dandy Roll print shop, just might be it.  Dandy Roll, collects and sells antique prints and maps dating back to the early 1900's.  The shop has a working printing press, and uses reclaimed barn wood to make gorgeous frames.  Taking a cue from their eclectic vintage surroundings filled of prints and poetry books, the team imagined the bride as a poet who wondered into her own wedding.  Bringing on the sense of a boho indie wedding, a sweet heart table was set near the large shop front windows, while the table was adorned with rustic nosh detailing, accented by shop prints of course!  Much like a true indie bride would be, our poet dons a simple white dress from Anthro, perfectly paired with vintage brown shoes.  There is a causal coolness to this indie wedding that is inescapable, the kind that no matter how hard you try, you simply can not replicate, it just is.  The locale is incredible, the table divine and the style.... utter indie wedding perfection.

  4. Whimsical Treats In This Moody Harry Potter Wedding

    I'll be honest, when I first received this submission I thought to myself, Harry Potter?  I struggled back-and-forth with the idea, thinking had the moment passed for a Harry Potter wedding, was it long gone now?  As I made my way through the styled shoot I began to take note of beautifully arranged florals by marigold + Moss featuring choice blooms in lush dark hues.  I saw table top decor from Bon Goût Party Deco styled by Just Styling executed with refined elegance and a graceful touch of class. Then I saw that piece de resistance to this Harry Potter wedding, a set featuring floating candles that decorated the air above and I knew I was hooked. Whether or not you're someone looking to be directly inspired by Harry Potter or someone that simply loves a sense of whimsy, this stylish take on magical design is up just about everyone's alley.  In the perfect moody color palette the shoot dances on dream inspiring details, allowing your senses to do the heavy lifting.  The spirit to gem is captured by wedding photographer Diana Bello Studio and does a treat of a job inspiring future brides no matter the direct influence!
