Sweet and modern with lots of glam!
So many wedding dresses! This micro wedding shoot was a sweet mix of modern accents that was not afraid to bring the glam. Gold accents with hints of glitter. Blossom Cleveland worked her magic with a mix of white, pink and touches of textured greenery. White roses, dahlias, ranunculus, and lilies were a perfect match for our wedding dresses!
The shoot took place at The CoLab in Lakewood which is T H E P E R F E C T venue for a micro wedding! The CoLab is a blank slate. The space is a chameleon and transforms into whatever you bring to it. It is all about who you are and letting your personality shine. It’s an intimate, historical space whose history including original floors and tin ceilings add to the charming atmosphere.
Now… let’s talk about the dresses!!
I knew our model would be transformed by Karen Willis Holmes’ Aisha wedding dress. It was meant for her! Her attitude completely changed. We added the killer pony tail and a red lip, styled the look with our sparkly Layne collar and the whole atmosphere changed.
Her boyfriend lit up. He dropped his phone and his jaw! Suddenly the vibe took a turn – it was sexy, vogue inspired, and so fun!
The beauty of Aisha is that it can be edgy and romantic at the same time. The dress features a figure-hugging bodice with sheer side panels and fitted skirt. The a-line overskirt is finished with a floral waist detail. The bodice is designed with a deep U-shape neckline to highlight your décolletage.
Aisha is made from a unique, non conventional fabric and most people think it’s not the dress for them. BUT! I’m here to tell you – this dress must be tried on. Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone to discover your dream dress!
The Coco wedding dress is a little bit of sex appeal but keeps it super sweet! She’s from the Astrid Mercedes line from designer Lea Ann Belter. It features a sexy fitted corset with lots of sparkle and lace. Coco was custom made for our studio. It existed in two parts and Lea Ann Belter combined them for us!
Coco gives you that once-in-a-lifetime princess feel! This dress has so much movement and always reminds us of Sarah Jessica Parker making her way through the streets of NYC in Sex and the City creating a stir with miles of tulle! She is for the bride who is wants glam and to feel like a princess. Our bride rocked it! We styled her with a tiara that was 100% crystal then switched it out with a flower crown to make the look as sweet as sweet can be.
Dream is an architectural dress with a detailed bodice and plunging neckline. She is from Lea Ann Belter’s Astrid & Mercedes Stardust Collection. The dress fit the venue so well. It’s streamlined and has clean lines which really mirror The CoLab’s structure.
Would not have been possible without the talents and vision of incredible wedding professionals!
