There’s something beautiful in the unexpected–something alluring in mismatched elements that somehow, someway blend perfectly. After all, they do say opposites attract! For Emily of Emily Ventura Designs, her vision was to bring a modern feel to a country home, and her goal was to work in a new city with vendors unfamiliar to her. "The shoot was done in a very short period of time," Emily says. "The most difficult task was just reaching out to the vendors to see if they wanted to participate and then making sure everyone was on the same page as far as theme."

Ambassador House, a quaint, Greek revival style home located in Fishers, Indiana offered just the right amount of charm both inside and out. Its beautiful, lush grounds, historic details and surrounding gardens served as the ideal setting for an elegant and classic style shoot.

The bride wore a two-piece gown from The Wedding Studio located in Carmel, Indiana. The lace design and button detail weren’t only romantic but befitting of the farmhouse look. A simple updo accented with pins and pearls and a very natural makeup application by Natalie Dawn completed the look.

Amy Beausir of the flower boutique, Molly and Myrtle, chose a seasonal white hydrangea and rose-inspired bouquet because of its beautiful, full look. We love how they incorporated greenery as well. This fresh color created pretty contrast while moss-filled boxes and garland added depth and interest.

Emily, a lover of modern, neutral colors, chose a very soft palette of white and green, opting to showcase the beauty of the carefully chosen details. A Classic Party Rentals provided all the rentals including the linens, Gold Majestic China, flatware and glassware.

For the simple (yet delicious!) cake Emily desired, she turned to Classic Cakes. A simple cake topper, gold accents and a bit of greenery tied the whole look together.

Katie Bowman of Blu3 Designs went above and beyond in her stationery designs. When asked by Emily to create the table names and numbers using marble and acrylic, she went a step further to create her own darling drawing of the Ambassador House for the stationery suite. The suite featured clean lines and a romantic feel.
