Some of you may not know that before I started Style Unveiled I was a wedding coordinator in Seattle … and sometimes I miss the action of making something happen. So, on May 1st I set out with some of my favorite Seattle wedding vendors to create a photo shoot. If you follow me in Instagram, you may have seen the sneak peeks from that day! Well, here is part I of the color story: yellow, orange, and red ombre with a hint of woven details.
I cannot say enough good things about the team I chose to work with … so brides listen up if you are on the hunt for a Seattle wedding vendor! First, Kimberly and Loren of Alante Photography … talk about a dynamic duo! I have worked with these two for personal professional photos as well as real weddings and on styled shoots and they bring their A-game every single time. I had the privilege of working with the ladies of Kathy Evans Beauty Studio for the first time and I was beyond impressed!! They stayed there the entire day and changed the looks of the models for each look without a single hitch! Aria Style, who provided the venue as well as the table looks (including floral decor, table linens, chiavari chairs, and lounge furniture) was a breeze to work with as always. Erin of Serephine, who designed some very special pieces for this day was beyond fabulous! Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events and Invitations (who is from California, but can be hired by anyone for her stationery) designed gorgeous paper pieces for this shoot. Davia of Davia Lee Events (who is also from California) flew up to help me with this and styled all the models as well as the tables. It was so much fun to meet her in person and to work side by side to create this look. Bethany of Commemory Fine Art created painted suns with an ombre design that read “you are my only sunshine”, words from a song that mean a lot to me. Carla of Honey Crumb Cake Studio designed the most darling wedding cake with an ombre design … and she is as sweet in person as her cakes are delicious! The models, Ivy, Eleanor, Kaisa, and Kimberly (of Alante Photography) were all a dream to work with and never once complained when I asked them to do something. We had gorgeous dresses from Nordstrom and Claire Pettibone that any bride would feel amazing wearing. The Roses by Reem Acra wedding dresses are exclusive to the Nordstrom Wedding Suite, for inquiring minds :)
I hope you love this as much as I loved creating it for you! I chose this color palette because summer in Seattle (when it happens) is so beautiful … we who live here cherish the days when the sun comes out to play! This is part I … I will share part II in just a few days!
Inspirational write-up by Davia of Davia Lee Events:
First I must say what a pleasure it was to work along side the amazing team Heather put together for her sun palette shoot. The day was filled with as much joy and laughter as showed in these pictures.
I was thrilled to be brought on to bring a dash of sunshine to each of the models as the fashion stylist for the day. Once Heather filled me in on the direction for this shoot I knew Kate Spade and Ila Handbags would be a match made in heaven! I also was lucky enough to have some custom earrings made by Rustic Gem that were the perfect delicate accessory for our beautiful beaded gown.
During the day my styling ventured into tabletop design and boy did I have fun with this table! We played with ribbon details and napkins to create a fun take on the oh so popular ombré trend.
Our hope was to create a design that was inspired by the bright sun and fun that summer brings. We wanted a palette that was fresh and fun for a summer bride. Take your time looking through the images and feeling the warmth they have to offer.
