In Love at the Lodge: An Inviting Cover Shoot at Barn at Bay Horse Inn

Carri Fras |  May 4, 2017

In today’s world, wedding design is going far beyond a single color or texture. More and more brides are choosing their very own style–their own theme. After partnering with Jodie Stansbury of Aisle Ready Events, we began to swoon over the idea of our own look: a slightly rustic, raw and natural cover shoot with a lodge-like feel. “When researching photos of lodges and lodge décor, we noticed a lot of Navajo patterns being used in the textiles,” Jodie says. “This pattern helped bring in the Sedona twist.” The vision of warm, soft colors and natural elements such as wood, stone, patterned pillows and even antlers had us, well, quite hooked!

The New Bohemian: A Bright, Eclectic Cover Shoot at Blissful Barn

Carri Fras |  April 27, 2017

It’s no secret that the vintage charm of barn weddings continues to be popular, luring many brides through their rustic barn doors–especially here in the Midwest! While we knew we wanted to use this sought-after venue, we also desired to design a fresh, new take on the typical barn wedding by taking advantage of the current boho trend. After joining forces with Krissy Campbell of Simply Be So Events, a Northern Indiana based wedding and event planning business, it was clear that a bright, bohemian cover shoot, coupled with a woodland feel and a touch of vintage would give us the very (beautiful) edge we so envisioned!

It was early morning business flights at the Columbus, Ohio airport that allowed Carlson and Brad’s paths to cross. But it was an unlikely path they won’t forget. Lucky for Brad, he was meeting their mutual friend for coffee and, lucky for Carlson, she had a flight with the same friend and had made time to wash her hair! “I knew I liked him from day one because he commented on my stylish Frye boots,” she says. “I have a unique sense of style, so it has always been important to me to find someone who enjoys my individuality.”

Betsy and Ryan Wilkinson met on OkCupid.com©. After chatting for a month, the two decided to meet in person, and it was evident at first sight that they shared something very special. The couple frequently took walks on Notre Dame’s campus, but what started as a typical scenic walk, ended with the surprise of Betsy’s life. As they made their way from the Grotto to the lake one memorable summer evening, Ryan proposed! While they had dated only six months, they planned on an engagement of a little over a year–enough time to plan the wedding of their dreams!

Fly Away With Me: A Retro Elopement Style Shoot

Carri Fras |  April 25, 2017

Can you imagine? A young couple jumps town in a small plane to wed each other secretly. The woman glows at the thought of jetting off to marry the man of her dreams. The breeze rustles across the tarmac (and the groom’s great 1960’s-esque hair) as they walk hand in hand, warmed by the setting sun and silhouetted by their gorgeous getaway plane. Sounds quite perfect, if you ask us! For Jillian Keller of Frame Worthy Events, this is the story she envisioned and brought to life.
