Bright & Modern Look Book Shoot

A few months ago, I was contacted by the lovely ladies of Something White (a charming bridal boutique located in Independence), who asked if I wanted to be a part of their spring/summer look book that they were putting together to show off their new collections. Um, yes please! (Although my response was probably a little more eloquent than that.) I met Karin and Rebecca this past January through the Boutique Bridal Bazaar, a local bridal fair-esque (but way cooler) event that they organized and put on, and was thrilled about the opportunity to work with them on another one of their projects. If you attended the BBB, you know that these shop owners know how to put on an awesome event. I quickly hopped on board and hit the ground running, taking on the styling for two of the five looks included in the look book.

Today I’m sharing the first of the two, which was Bright & Modern. The shoot took place at The Tudor Arms, which is an amazing hotel with tons of old-world charm located in downtown Cleveland. We filled the look with tons of bright pinks, oranges and yellows, a seriously fun tablescape, and a simple but stylish dessert buffet. I also put together a paper chain backdrop to show off some of Something White’s new dresses. I wouldn’t call my style particularly modern, but I had such a fun time working outside of my normal zone. I couldn’t help but add in a good dose of handmade touches, in true WL&W fashion. It just goes to show that handmade can certainly have a place in any style of event! I hope you love these photos (taken by the absolutely lovely Arielle of Arielle Doneson Photography) as much as I do!
