This "Winter Wedding" Style Session was a dream team come true! We spent a (very February-like) day in the studio combining forces to create this image collection.
Here are the wedding professionals that generously contributed their expertise and awesomeness:
Floral: Ashely Fox Design
Gowns: Bridal Accents Couture
Accessories: Bridal Accents Couture and personally owned
Hair & Make-up: Farrah & Jamie, independent stylists from The Hair District
Models: Ava & Chrissy
Photography: lauren b. photography
A gigantic thank you to all involved, who donated their time and blessed us with their talents - it was a wonderful and invigorating day!
Wise words from Ashley Fox regarding our approach: We took some marvelous dresses, paired them with things a bride may already own from her or her grandmother's or mom's collection and worked them in to fit a bride's own style. For example, the cowboy boots and belt were Ava's, Chrissy with the black shoes and necklace.
With the hair and makeup, we started with a more natural, classic look and then developed into a wild, edgy, artful style with a high-fashion approach. Michelle with Bridal Accents Couture was so generous to share these amazing gowns!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum hosted a charming wedding fair (notice the lauren b. booth?) and food tasting over the weekend. The various table designs were by Festivities - something stunning for every style! - and I was asked to take some photos of the set up and plated food. Yummy!

The Embassy Suites Minneapolis -Airport is a beautiful, lush hotel right near the airport. I visited last week to take some vendor shots of their meeting spaces and reception decor. How fun - love the bright and cool blue and hanging lantern globes! What a nice, intimate, and versatile space for a wedding or event! Here are a few favorites!
