BRIDES!

STILL OUT THERE AND ON THE HUNT FOR WEDDING INVITATIONS? I'VE GOT AN INCREDIBLY EASY, INCREDIBLY PRETTY OPTION FOR YOU. I WORKED WITH BASIC INVITE TO DESIGN TWO DIFFERENT SETS OF WEDDING INVITATIONS AND IT WAS JUST THE SIMPLEST PROCESS.

FIRST OF ALL, BASIC INVITE OFFERS HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT BEAUTIFUL WEDDING INVITATION DESIGNS AND ENVELOPE COLORS AND PAPER OPTIONS. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT YOU'LL BE ABLE TO FIND THE PERFECT DESIGN TO FIT YOUR UNIQUE DAY. I FIRST SELECTED A CLEAR ACRYLIC INVITATION STYLE. FROM THAT STARTING TEMPLATE, I WAS ABLE TO COMPLETELY CUSTOMIZE MY SUITE WITH MY OWN FONT, COLOR, AND TEXT PLACEMENT OPTIONS. THIS WHOLE PROCESS TOOK ME LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AND WAS INCREDIBLY USER FRIENDLY. I'M SUPER TEMPTED TO ORDER A SET OF THEIR ROSE GOLD FOIL PLACE CARDS FOR MY NEXT DINNER PARTY...

ASIDE FROM WEDDING INVITATIONS AND SAVE THE DATE CARDS, BASIC INVITE ALSO OFFERS KEEPSAKE GUEST BOOKS, STATIONERY, AND THANK YOU NOTES. THEY HAVE CUSTOMIZABLE PAPER GOODS FOR BABY SHOWERS, BIRTHDAYS, VALENTINE'S DAY, QUINCEANERAS, AND CHRISTMAS (JUST TO NAME A FEW EVENT OPTIONS...). YOU CAN EVEN WORK WITH BASIC INVITE TO CREATE YOUR OWN WEDDING WEBSITE! THEY'RE FREE

REED AND ANGIE

ALL TIME FAVORITE VENUE - NO QUESTION. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO PHOTOGRAPH REED AND ANGIE'S LOVELY REHEARSAL DINNER AND WEDDING DAY AT FOXFIRE MOUNTAIN HOUSE IN UPSTATE NEW YORK THIS PAST FALL. I'VE GOT TWO MORE WEDDINGS THERE THIS YEAR AND I CANNOT WAAAAAAAAIT (I'D STILL LOVE TO ADD MORE...). 

I COULD LIST ENDLESS FANTASTIC THINGS FROM THIS DAY - A PUP IN A FLORAL COLLAR BY SCULPTED FILMS, IMPECCABLY DESIGNED ROOM AFTER IMPECCABLY DESIGNED ROOM,  CHARLOTTE STONE HEELS, A REHEARSAL DINNER ON THE PORCH UNDER LITTLE WHITE LIGHTS, AN ANGULAR ARCH CONSTRUCTED BY THE GROOM HIMSELF, A DANCE FLOOR MADE OF ARTFUL TILES, A GORGEOUS GOWN AND FUR BY STONE FOX BRIDE, AND LOOOOOTS OF CANDLE LIGHT. TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF!

KONRAD AND LAUREN

KONRAD AND LAUREN HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. THIS WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CHICAGO DAY. ASIDE FROM ALLLLLLL OF THE BEAUTIFUL DETAILS AND LOCATIONS YOU'LL SEE IN THE IMAGES BELOW, MY BIGGEST MEMORY OF KONRAD AND LAUREN'S DAY AND OF THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WAS HOW GIVING AND THOUGHTFUL EVERYONE WAS. THAT'S WHAT LASTS AND THAT'S WHAT MATTERS. THIS WAS MY KIND OF DAY AND I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU ALL TO FINALLY SEE THIS BATCH OF PHOTOS!

XO, ALYSSA

BEN AND LEAH

LAST WINTER WE HAD THE ITCH TO SHOOT SOMETHING BRIDAL IN THE FREEEEEEZING COLD YET BEAUTIFUL SNOW THAT IS OUR REALITY DURING JANUARY IN MICHIGAN. LISA OF LINNAEA FLORAL, SAM KLUG ARTISTRY, KRYSTLE WAIVIO, AND I TEAMED UP TO DO JUST THAT. BEN AND LEAH GRACIOUSLY AGREED TO PLAY MODELS FOR THE DAY (SOMETHING I THINK THEY WERE MOST DEFINITELY CUT OUT TO DO).

IF YOU AND YOUR BESTIE WANT TO ELOPE OR RENEW YOUR VOWS IN THE SNOW, PLEEEEEEASE GET IN TOUCH! I'M SO READY FOR THE COLD FINGERS.

IAN AND COCO

I LOVED THIS DAY. LOVED IT. SIGN ME UP FOR A WEDDING LIKE THIS EVERY WEEKEND.

IAN AND COCO GOT MARRIED RIGHT ON THE SHORES OF LAKE MICHIGAN IN CUSTOM WHITE DENIM JACKETS. COCO'S DRESS AND ACCESSORIES? VINTAGE. KENLEY EVENT DESIGN THREW TOGETHER A CHARMING BOUQUET OF WILD FLOWERS FOR THE BRIDE. THE WHOOOOOOLE PARTY WAS DESIGNED AND EXCECUTED BY JAMIE OVER AT HEY DAY LAB (SHE'S BRILLIANT.). WE ATE DONUTS AND ATE TACOS FROM DONKEY TAQUERIA. ALL THE DECOR WAS VINTAGE INSPIRED (THINK TALL LIGHT PINK CANDLES IN BRASS HOLDERS, WILD FLOWER BOUQUETS, DISCO BALLS, BANDANAS, ETC.). IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU MAY ALSO SEE SOME STAR WARS PARAPHERNALIA SPRINKLED THROUGHOUT. 

ENJOY THIS ONE - I KNOW I DID.

XO, ALYSSA

MATTHEW AND ALYSSA

HOLY COW THIS WEDDING DAY WAS FUN. THERE'S NO BETTER WORD FOR IT. ALYSSA AND HER LADIES BEGAN THEIR DAY AT THE DETROIT FOUNDATION HOTEL WHILE THE GUYS GOT READY AT THE DAVID WHITNEY BUILDING JUST MINUTES AWAY. THEIR WEDDING DAY WAS SUCH A DREAM TO SHOOT.

THERE WERE SO MANY GOOD VENDORS TO WORK WITH ON THIS PARTICULAR SATURDAY. I GOT TO PHOTOGRAPH NEXT TO EMILY HARD FILMS ALL DAY LONG. CASSY ROSE EVENTS HELD EVERYTHING TOGETHER. ALYSSA'S GORGEOUS GOWN WAS BY SARAH SEVEN. THE DAY'S BEAUTIFUL FLORALS WERE CURATED BY FLOWERS OF THE FOREST. THE PARTY (DJ'D BY ADRIAN BUTLER) WENT DOWN AT THE DETROIT INSTITUTE OF ARTS

I'M STILL SO JAZZED ABOUT THIS DAY. THESE TWO WERE/ARE SO INTO EACH OTHER AND I THINK THAT MUCH IS SOOOOOO CLEAR IN THIS SET OF IMAGES. MATT AND ALYSSA, THANKS A MILLION FOR LETTING ME BE A PART OF YOUR DAY. ENJOY!

XO, ALYSSA
