Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
A friend was describing me once and she said: “You’re a type-A boho; a free spirit that gets sh!t done!” And she is right, that sums me up perfectly. I’m a creative that loves her freedom, and I love sharing my freedom by taking on roles that help people, like wedding planning. I take on the coordinator and planner role so you and family and guests get to enjoy the celebration. Simply Gypsy Events is a boutique wedding planning company based in the Midwest, mostly in MN and WI. We do love destination weddings too! We were in California and Italy this year.
Today’s real wedding brought to us by Style & Story Creative (Columbus, OH) is brimming with glamorous vintage details! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:
Our wedding was utterly breathtaking. For getting married Labor Day weekend in Ohio we were uncertain what weather we would end up with. The sky was a crisp blue with beautiful big white clouds and a nice summer breeze. We were married in a catholic cathedral style church, the church I was lucky enough to grow up in, in small town rural Delphos, Ohio . The kind of church built in the late 1800s with floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows, intricate and detailed paintings, and stunning woodwork.
This gorgeous rustic wedding comes to us from Bellagala, based in Saint Paul, MN! Here’s Bellagala to tell us more:
Courtney wanted a classic and romantic venue and Kyle was drawn to the more “rustic” looking venues and Mayowood Stone barn was the perfect blend of of the two and they loved it! “My husband works with trees for a living and so the beautiful old Oak trees on the grounds were another big reason we went with Mayowood Stone Barn” said Courtney.
We’re absolutely loving this ultra romantic wedding invitation suite by Brown Fox Creative, (Fort Worth, TX) not to mention the amazing vintage details in this imeccably styled photo shoot! Here’s Brown Fox Creative to tell us moe:
This styled shoot was coordinated by Leslie Palafox. The idea behind the shoot was to create a moody, romantic feel. Instead of brightly colored water colors, I choose a muted palette to coordinate.
Today’s guest post, brought to us by Steve Gerrard Photography (Montreal, QC) is brimming with helpful tips and insights to help you have a perfect winter wedding!
As I sit here in my studio close to Montreal, the snow is drifting down outside, covering cars and making drivers question going anywhere. And this is just the start of it. As we know, the coming months will bring heavier snow and plummeting temperatures. A Canadian winter is considerably more challenging than the ones I grew up with back in the UK. As a wedding photographer I’ve shot multiple winter weddings back in England but, after relocating to Montreal three years ago, winter weddings bring with them a different level of planning than those in the warmer months. And yet, there are plenty of couples who don’t allow the cold weather to put them off exchanging vows when temperatures plummet.
Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Katie Eaker, Owner of Katie B. Photography, based in Atlanta, GA! Enjoy:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
My name is Katie and I am a wedding photographer from Augusta, Georgia. Most days you can find me binge-watching classic films, exploring bookstores and antique malls, or digging through vintage clothes racks like I’m Indiana Jones searching for the Holy Grail. I’m also a Broadway obsessed novelist and travel enthusiast who’s always looking for my next adventure. Most of all, I’m a storyteller. My photography style reflects my never-ending quest for connection… it’s authentic, real and honest.
Sweet moments and thoughtful details abound in today’s real wedding brought to us by Jasmine White Photography, based in Princeton, WV! Here’s Jasmine to tell us more:
We traveled almost 4 hours to Morgantown, West Virginia on the morning of May 20th and believe it or not, it had nothing to do with a WVU sporting event. Instead we were there to watch two of the sweetest people say “I do”, Lindsey and John Michael.
