The gorgeous, outdoor setting of the historic Ambassador House in Fishers, Indiana was the perfect, natural location for this Southwestern, bohemian style shoot. Inspired by a single table runner, Hannah Strickler, owner of Design the Day, got to work. “As soon as I saw the BBJ Desert Horizon collection, I knew I had to create!” she says. “As soon as I knew I needed to create, Emma from EmmaLeigh Photography was at the top of my vendor list because I knew she’d be the perfect fit for the shoot as her style aligned impeccably.”


From a color palette inspired by the runner to vintage plates and clay pots, all the details came together seamlessly. The gorgeous peacock chairs, handmade dream catchers, agate slice escort cards, farm table and crossback chairs were perfect complements to the impressive décor while a beautiful cake incorporated hand-painted details in various prints, colors and feathers. The simple stationery suite with clean, bold lines was the perfect addition.


The bride stunned in a Lenora by Wtoo Watters dress, provided by Sophia’s Bridal. “The high neck, cap sleeves, open, keyhole back and circle lace was the perfect twist of modern and bohemian,” says Hannah. Natural makeup and a beautiful updo, accented by a gold feather, completed the look. A simple bouquet featuring eucalyptus and ferns added understated beauty.
