Pinterest Comes to Life Bridal Show | Beautiful Blooms by Jen & Mager Designs decorated a fall romantic themed wedding at the University of Toledo Radisson

 

This was such a unique bridal show! Local wedding vendors got together and designed separate wedding rooms with the 4 seasons as the theme. Each room had a team of vendors working together – like an actual wedding. Instead of setting up a booth with pretty pictures (like a standard bridal show) their room was their booth to show off their work.

 

The vendors: Beautiful Blooms by Jen | Mager Designs | 7 Little Cupcakes | Chiavari Chairs Toledo | I Do Chair Covers

 

The fall romantic themed wedding had giant farm tables made up the guest x table, the whiskey barrel in the center was done by Mager Designs.  They also did the gold reserved seating table and the hanging cake table. The big wall was also a Mager Designs. Beautiful Blooms by Jen added the adorable & fun balloons and flowers to the wall. 7 little cupcakes added the perfect cupcakes and donuts to complete it! 7 Little Cupcakes also designed the gorgeous wedding cake.

The fall romantic themed wedding showed large arrangements. The center arrangement had kale, dusty roses, burgundy carnations, kangaroo paw, and fuschia garden roses. The place setting had an orchid and was accented with gold candlesticks and copper votives: Beautiful Blooms by Jen. The head gold table had rose gold pedestal vases filled with antique hydrangea, dusty pink roses, red spray roses, eryngium, and fun greenery. Navy blue metal balls and candles were provided by Beautiful Blooms by Jen. The marquee chandelier over the head gold table was provided by Mager Designs. Beautiful Blooms by Jen & 7 Little Cupcakes had a lot of fun filling the wall up with geometry bud vases, callas, donuts, cupcakes and touches of the other flowers.

Pinterest Comes to Life Bridal Show at Radisson Hotel at The University of Toledo

 

This was such a unique bridal show! Local wedding vendors got together and designed separate wedding rooms with the 4 seasons as the theme.

Engagement sessions … I love them SO much! I love the way they give me a chance to get to know my clients, and the way they allow my clients to get to know me. I love the way they allow a bride and groom to get comfortable in front of my camera long before their wedding day. I love the freedom they offer so that my clients can really have fun on a photo shoot, away from the pressures of their wedding day.

Over the years, countless couples have told me about a  worry that gets in the way of their excitement about their engagement photos. They simply don’t know what to wear. And since many couples have plans to use their engagement portraits on their save-the-date cards, guest book, wedding website and more, not knowing what to wear can lead to serious stressing out!

Have no fear! I may not be able to dig through your closet with you to find the perfect outfits, but I can offer some tried-and-true guidelines that will help you find your engagement shoot style!

So here’s what to wear for your engagement photos:

 

Coordinate!

Coordinating doesn’t mean you have to wear matching outfits. In fact, looking extremely matchy-matchy is artificial and an outdated trend. But your looks should fit together.

There are two main components to coordinating:

A – Level of formality. If he’s in a tux, she shouldn’t be in a peasant blouse. And if she’s dressed to the nines, he shouldn’t be in a sports jersey.
B – Color Palette. Drawing from the same color palette is a great way to coordinate! Check out the photos from an engagement shoot I did in last fall below. I love the way Beth & Tom pulled these outfits together to create a cohesive look. There’s no question that these two belong together!

Get fancy!

Engagement photos are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull out all the stops for your portraits. Why waste it on an outfit you wore to the grocery store last weekend? I love the idea of choosing a dream dress from Rent the Runway for your session. Most engagement shoots offer time to change your outfit, so you can have one fancy-schmancy outfit and one more casual.

 

Besides adding interest, accessories are also a great way to bring your personal sense of style into your engagement photos.

 

One word of warning!

Small, tight patterns, like very narrow stripes, aren’t the best for photos.

 

The most important suggestion I can offer is this: Be yourself, but be the BEST VERSION of yourself. Elevate your outfits beyond the everyday so that you’ll have engagement photos that you’ll want to show off for years to come!
