Welcome back for part 2 of the Romantic Styled Shoot we did with our friends from the KC North Networking Group. I know Sarah talked about it on Wednesday but I’m just going to say it again, this shoot would not have been nearly as amazing if it hadn’t been for the awesome vendors that were apart of it. I’m going to share several detail images today. As we said the other day Shana and the rest of us set up seven different set ups for this shoot. We set up an indoor ceremony, an outdoor ceremony, an indoor cocktail area with vintage bar, an outdoor cocktail hour, 2 indoor reception rooms (1 with an elaborate cake table, the other with a sweet heart table), and the kitchen. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this sort of thing – that’s a lot!
We are also so thankful to our models, Caleb & Andrea, for agreeing to embody this shoot. Our goal for this shoot was not only to showcase the services/products of each of the vendors who participated but to also make it a source of inspiration for any couple planning their wedding. We wanted this shoot to be beautiful and realistic. So often styled shoots seem like something unattainable, we wanted this to be something that any couple we spoke to could have if they wanted. Caleb & Andrea helped us all perfectly showcase all of those different set ups, attire, beauty services, and of course photography.
The Wynbrick is an adorable boutique venue. It is a historic estate that was built in the 1930’s. Because of this it has a unique and intimate layout. The first room that was styled was the ballroom. On Wednesday we showed images of it set up for a ceremony. These images show the same room set up for a reception with the cake table set in front of the mantle. The cake was made by Heather Roebekke from Indulge Cake Studio. When all of the candles were lit and the tables were set we all stood back and squealed a little bit about how pretty it was.
After the Ballroom we moved into the Garden Room, which was set up as a reception space with a sweetheart table. The Garden Room is filled with light since it has windows on 3 sides. It also has a fireplace that boasts a mantle from the original Coates Hotel.
We were able to time the photoshoot to take advantage of a bit of twilight for the end of the day. Outside there is a new patio that has strung lights. It’s perfect for an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour!
And remember how we mentioned that there were 2 dress from Romancing the Gowns for the shoot? Andrea is wearing the 2nd dress in these photos. It is a very light blush and that skirt was AMAZING.
Thanks for hanging in there with us while the blog was a little quiet so that we were able to work on the networking group, this shoot, and lots of other things that are coming up soon. We can’t pick a favorite part of this shoot. What is your favorite part?
