Christine Kim of Ji Chérir Photography dreamt of a style shoot that would satisfy any hipster or coffee lover as it centered around the use of a Vespa Ape, courtesy of Urbana Cafe, a Cincinnati mobile coffee bar.

Christine chose the warehouse because of its industrial city vibes, its greatest allure being exposed brick walls.

“Because we were going for more of a relaxed feel, I didn’t want a traditional princess dress,” says Christine. I knew I wanted off-the-shoulders with delicate, lace detail to make it elegant and a long train to give it that ‘wow’ factor.” The bride’s hair was kept warm and natural.

Ellie, owner of The Budding Florist and Christine went forging for a lot of the greenery and florals that were used. Christine says, “We choose ‘Coco Loco’ roses that have these beautiful mauves with brown tones to highlight the coffee aspect of the shoot.”


The lovely dessert was a delicious smoked butterscotch buttercream cake with handmade flowers made from potato starch.


Queen City Vignette, a vintage rental company, helped to select vintage Moroccan rugs, lamps, his and hers peacock chairs and an eye-catching farmhouse table complete with handmade, iron hairpin legs.


Loving the trend of jackets, Christine added another special touch—the bride and groom’s thrifted jackets.
