Aly and Campbell at Silver Oaks Chateau

Aly and Campbell were married in sunny Southern California but came back to Silver Oaks Chateau for their midwest reception, styled beautifully by the bride.

I know I’ve bragged on her before, but Alicia from On Three Designs is seriously incredible.  She hand lettered this beautiful sign, as well as the plum place cards below.

Melinda from Les Bouquets has once again outdone herself. This bouquet with incredible protea has me swooning.

The bridal room where the ladies get ready is absolutely dreamy at Silver Oaks Chateau. So much natural light and fantastic furnishings make this suite a photographer’s dream.

Regency Era styled shoot

It was such a pleasure to be a part of this styled shoot with the oh-so-talented Lauren Field Design and so many talented local vendors. To see more from this session, head on over to The Perfect Palette.


This custom calligraphy from Alicia Lanzy from On Three Designs is positively swoon-worthy. Seriously. I can’t stop staring at it. If you have a custom calligraphy need, I think this goes without saying, but call Alicia. Like, now :).

And these flowers… Melinda from Les Bouquets truly outdid herself. And she’s always such a pleasure to work with too :).

Tobye and Jon :: Married at the Chase Park Plaza

chase park plaza wedding_037

Ok, how gorgeous is Tobye on the rooftop of the Chase Park Plaza in that golden sunlight right before sunset? That dress, her hair, that light… Sheesh.  Just perfection.

But I may be getting ahead of myself… so many pretty details in Tobye and Jon’s day from start to finish, including this beautiful hanger with custom calligraphy from On Three Designs, who’s work is some of the very best in the region, if I do say so myself.  Tobye and Jon’s infectious joy made this whole day so very splendid, and I was so honored to document their wedding day.  Katie Saeger‘s beautiful coordination made the flow easily from one beautiful event to the next, and I have so many pretty things to share!
