From the designer… The inspiration for this shoot was “Opposites Attract”. Well, our real life couple is just that. Matt, tall with brown hair and Nicole, petite and blonde, that fit the inspiration for this shoot perfectly.

The soft romantic lines of the bride’s Pronovias halter gown from Mariella Creation’s, with intricate beading and neck and shoulder details evoke the look of a cape, played to the soft romantic vintage look we were trying to achieve and still be fashion forward. So I asked Mariella for something new that would capture the trends going forward. As always she knew exactly what I would love to complete my overall vision. The navy & black groom’s tux, provided by Formals by Antonio was fresh and urban but, still classic. We wanted to encompass what we saw on the red carpet worn by the stars but, turn it bridal.

Harkness Memorial Park further allowed us the opportunity to marry an urban feel to the romantic. The hard edge green house that we styled more contemporary played counter balance to the soft canopy of cottage roses on the garden trellis that enclosed their sweetheart table. A gold lace sequin table cloth on a streamline glass table and an abundance of colorful floral, further complimented the soft romantic feel we were looking to achieve. The makeup by Alexis Gameroz-Steeiey helped us continue the stage of that romantic bridal look with the wine colored lips against our bride Nicole’s, fair skin. Ashley Hinman did a gorgeous side sweep bridal up do to show off Nicole’s hair. The side sweep allowed us to capture the beautiful details of the back of the dress. The photographer Val McCormick and the videographer Matt Van Ness did a beautiful job working together and made sure we were able to capture, the details, and the chemistry between the bride and groom.

All of the professionals that contributed to this shoot inspired each other, even in spite of the 95 degree heat and time constraints we were under.
