Garden Inspired Editorial Shoot

"This garden-inspired shoot was filled with romantic, neutral blooms laced with untamed, textural greenery and a pop of vibrant color.  The handheld bouquet featured Garden Roses, Anemone, Orlaya, Ranunculus, Astilbe and Asclepias, all wrapped in specialty silk ribbon." - Jenni of Wild Hill Flowers

Going Dutch Editorial Shoot

"We were inspired by the still life Dutch Masters paintings, particularly their use of light and dark to create focal points and drama. We brought a fantastic team of local KC wedding vendors that took our inspiration and brought it to life with eclectic tablescapes complete with luxurious fabrics, lush florals and styling true to the opulent era. 

Styled shoots are our opportunity to explore new ideas, so we incorporated some unique elements, like a bold color palette that incorporated berry tones and olive green, as well as hanging a board from the ceiling above each table to act as a shelf to place decor!"

Colorful Spring Wedding at 2016 Main

"Colin and I dated for almost 8 years before we got engaged, so our lives have become so intertwined. Our relationship was just a series of great stories, insides jokes, and laughter, so we wanted to celebrate our history and the people that were there with us along the way. We're both a little quirky, and we knew we wanted to stray from the traditional - so our design aesthetic was filled with bright colors, punchy graphics and silly details. 

I designed our invitations - each icon represented stories from our past.  (I eventually printed it out, and it hangs with all the artwork we got on our honeymoon in our living room!) We used those same graphics for our website, menus, coasters, and little pins that the guests could take with them. I made special pins for everyone in our wedding party that represented our favorite stories with each of them. Even our food stations were inspired by moments from our past. We had "His" - Mexican - which is our go-to meal of choice in Kansas City // "Hers" - Brunch - because we spent a lot of time at Ihop for late night pancakes before we started dating // and "Ours" - Sliders - because he made me burgers on our first date! Even our signature drink (the Nancy) was from our favorite restaurant in Manhattan.  

We also wanted our family incorporated as much as we could. The centerpieces at the front of the church were my grandmother's candle sticks. Each had a name of the people that were there in spirit. I walked down the aisle to my grandfather's favorite song to play on the piano - Claire De Lune, and wore my mom's wedding band for my old, borrowed and blue! Even the late night snacks were the chocolate chip cookies that are a staple in the Campbell fam (Colin and his mom made them from scratch!)

One moment of panic came when we realized they had closed the street outside the front door of our reception space, but it turned out totally fine and we got some GORGEOUS photos of downtown kansas city on the middle of main street!

We couldn't have done any of this without the help of our amazing family. Carolyn literally made all of my dreams come true. Colin's mom Cathy sewed and ironed 150 different brightly colored cloth napkins.  My brother surprised us  with a Limo exit at the end of the night. Even our sweet family friends, Pat and Jodi (who own 2016 main) were flipping French toast in the kitchen when our caterers ran out! It could not have been a more perfect or wonderful day. (Dream team!)".  - Mary, the bride

Spare, Ethereal, Modern Editorial

"The stationery suite set the tone for the ceremony and reception design. Our graphic designer created a printing press pattern that was letter-pressed by Inclosed with blush ink on the main invitation and blind embossed on the enclosure cards. The main invitation also featured hologram foil, so when the invite caught the light, the recipient would get a touch of the neon yellow color we incorporated into the wedding palette. The envelope liner featured a black and white engagement photo of the couple.

Keeping with our minimalist aesthetic, we chose matte ceramic china layered over simple wood chargers for each place setting. Copper flatware perfectly matched the modern hand-painted candlesticks that ran down the length of the table. Place cards and menus were hand-lettered on handmade deckled-edge cotton paper using modern calligraphy that was right-aligned to give it a more modern feel."   -  Candace Kalasky, Lovestruck Events

Colorful Old World Mexico Editorial

"We wanted to capture the look of old world Mexico, somehow steeped in the lushness of the Midwest. The leafy green foliage and fluffy, paper thin blooms of the bougainvillea used throughout the arrangements contrasted with the sharp colors and almost stern facial features of our Cuban bride. Saturated color, crotchet lace, whimsical shapes and patterns, and textures galore conjure up this feeling of easy times and lavish living.

We wanted to reflect a feeling more than anything. I think we did that. And not surprisingly, it was captured photographically exactly as it was seen by the naked eye. Have we mentioned that it was a sultry 85° by 9am kind-of day? Nothing about this shoot would have been the same without the amazing brains and superhero creativity behind each element. It was perfection."  - Jane Tucker of Milles Flores
