The Bridal Look
The bride wore a long sleeve, open back, crepe gown from Pronovias . The simple sheath gown features buttons along the arm and an bateau neckline. Simple and incredibly elegant, this gown shows off curves while remaining ultra feminine. If Grace Kelly were to wear a gown, this would be it. She finished the look with a chapel length veil trimmed in lace. She wore deep emerald shoes with vintage style diamond embellishments. Drop earrings complimented her hair which was swept back in an intricate bun worn at the nape of her neck.
The Groom’s Look:
The groom wore a beautifully tailored black suit with jacket. The suit was accented with a cranberry colored tie and socks. Cufflinks were a nod to any man who loves to play cards! His look is clean and simple. The boutonniere in a deep red set off the richness of the tie and finished the look perfectly. His look is modern and clean, just as that of his bride.
The bridesmaids wore Adrianna Papell bridesmaids gowns from the Platinum Collection. Soft pink chiffon is overlaid with delicate beadwork. Each gown has its own distinct style, but all are meticulously embroidered ands hare the same color tones. Their bouquets overflowed with delicate greenery and were created with rich warm reds as a nod to the winter season.
Varying sizes of vintage style frames outline the signage at the reception, many are mirrors with white script. Tables are clean and white with wooden Chiavari chairs and ruby napkins. Centerpieces feature the colors of the holiday season with deep rich red roses accented with winter greenery. Touches of berries, evergreen, eucalyptus were interspersed with vintage style candlesticks, while the head table boasts a large swath of decorated holiday greenery. No element was left untouched, even the beautiful chandelier was trimmed in the holiday florals. The cake featured deep red roses as the cake topper while the rest of the design is simple and elegant.
As we face the grey weather and semi cold temps, we decided to post something to remind us of warm and wonderful days. So, if you are busy recovering from or planning for the holidays, here is a mini escape for you.
This summertime engagement shoot was documented by Sarah Botta Photography and features two German Shephard Husky mix pups, a stunning engagement ring and the background of open fields and soft grasses. The session was held at Hampton Mansion in Towson Maryland. Enjoy these images!
The couple went for a clean style. The guy wore clean button down long sleeve shirt with khaki short. Note there are no pockets/pleats so he has a more finished style. Her look was a large floral pattern dress that is full length and ties at the side. The dark tones and structure of the sun dress work well. As a second look, she wore a cotton a symmetric dress that is soft and casual feel. Her nails are painted the preferred color of British royalty- baby pink. She opted out of shoes and went for the romantic barefoot look.
We love the natural look of this shoot. It is not overly styled, but the clothing choices are finished enough to allow for a clean and professional look to the images. The pups were brought in to wear the save the date tags. We haven’t seen the wedding yet, but I am hoping the pups were part of it too. Dogs make everything better !
Thanks for checking out today’s post and come back soon to check out our next feature!
This wedding has a beautiful waterfront ceremony overlooking the Baltimore harbor and an industrial boho chic reception at the Frederick Douglass Museum in Baltimore. Feminine elements of swathes of greenery and florals of soft and light color tones in bohemian design added an earthy bohemian flair. The beautiful Baltimore wedding was photographed by Nikki Schell Photography.
Her dress was a beautiful champagne colored Jenny Yoo Gown. The gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline with embellished with beaded appliqué of english ivy and silk organza. The bodice was a fit and flare silhouette that complements the feminine modern bride. The bridesmaids wore an assortment of blush chiffon Jenny Yoo dresses that, some boasting a soft floral pattern. The bride had a Man-0f-Honor who wore a light grey suit with a blush bowtie to match the ladies.
The groom and his groomsmen went for a traditional black tie look. They all looked incredibly dapper in their property fitted suits.
The invitations are simple and clean. Torn edges and thick paper stock are the modern take on romantic bohemian style. The paper boasts a simple floral design and romantic oversized script font.
Their ceremony was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful arch, the view of the Baltimore Harbor. The altar was composed of brass and wood, decorated with florals flanking both sides of the pointed arch. Wood chairs were placed along the pier creating an isle and lending to a farmhouse feel while overlooking the iconic Baltimore Inner Harbor. The couple wrote their own vows, which made every single person shed a tear.
The reception space is a mix of historic Baltimore and Industrial chic. The space boasts worn brick, exposed warehouse style ceilings and large windows that overlook Baltimore. The site was styled with hanging greens, long farm tables which were overflowing with greens and flowers. The color scheme was classic white. The texture comes in from the mixed florals and greenery and the historic industrial elements of the space.
