Oh hey there! This shoot, the beautifulness!! A group of spectacular vendors came together and created this amazing whimsical, vintage chic shoot. This was so fun to work on. Seriously, if you hire any of these vendors for your big day…well you are one lucky human! Seriously, go hire all of them, right now! You won’t be disappointed. To top it all, this shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks, check out their post here!!
We shot at the Greenhouse in the Downtown Market. If you want a dreamy location, this is it. The lighting, the airiness, (gasp!) it’s amazing! The beautiful rentals are from West Michigan Rental Co., Heather and Robyn are awesome and so is every single piece that they have! The invitation suite, that cake dessert (mouth is currently watering), those vintage dishes, THAT DRESS!! Ali Van Haren from Centennial Avenue is awesome. Anything she creates is beautiful! Look at that envelope liner!! The dessert buffet by Ginger Bakes was seriously incredible! Her cakes, mini cakes, cupcakes, fried donuts and baked donuts are so freakin good. Just do yourself a favor and check her out! You will not regret it, I promise. Anything and everything from Gigi & LaClede is beautiful. Every dish in this shoot was from there. The bride and groom’s attire were from Spring Sweet and Dunhill Tuxedos. Spring’s gowns are so beautiful and she doesn’t only do bridal gowns, you need to check out her little boutique on the first floor of the shop. If you are in downtown Holland, MI stop by her place! How dapper does the groom look in his tux from Dunhill?!
Hair and makeup were done flawlessly by Krystal Waivio and Dawn Petzak with BeautiControl. Check out that fishtail braid, total heart eyes! This updo by Krystle was also featured on Modern Salon, check that out here!
The florals and styling were done by yours truly :). All of the beautifulness was captured by Sam from Samantha James Photography. She is so awesome to work with and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her photography style is so light and airy…die!
