I was beyond excited when I was asked to shoot a styled shoot for publication in Wedding Day Magazine. This shoot was at LEX 530, a new venue in Downtown Elkhart. So full of natural light, it is a great venue for brides looking for that bright, modern look! I absolutely LOVED shooting there and cannot wait to go back. I have been so excited for the release of this magazine so I can share more of the photos from the shoot with you all!

The vendors for this shoot were all amazing to work with. The styling and design was done by my dear friend, Cynthia at Celebrated Events. The color pallet and details were PERFECT! They were going for an ultra modern look, so that deep plum, black and gold hint were beyond perfection! The florals were an excellent addition by Marco Alexandra Flora & Event Services.

Cassie & Justin (the models) are friends of mine and are an actual couple which made their modeling so much better! The connection between them is so great and easy to be seen in photos. Cassie’s amazing dress and jumpsuit was provided by Blushing Bride on 17. The tux by The Black Tux.

The cake from Froelich’s was so cool. I have watched so many glazed cakes on pinterest, but have never seen one in person. It was absolute perfection. The ceremony space was decorated with so many candles, for an ultra romantic look.

The florals by Marco Alexzandra Floral & Event Services were incredible. The hanging centerpiece was beyond perfection for any event! It fit this one so well. The table and chairs and rentals from Burns Rent-All were so great too. The see through chairs worked so well for the ceremony & reception.

Thank you to all the vendors for having me. I loved photographing this styled shoot! Cannot wait for the next one.
