Winter Woodland Wedding | Styled Shoot

A dream come true. Holy Crap. My first styled shoot. I knew I wanted to do one, but I didn’t know if I was ready. We had just moved, I haven’t lived in Lima for around 9 years. I knew no one. I reached out to the florist who created the beautiful flowers for our wedding and she was all for it! I spoke with her a few times after and she encouraged me to not wait till next year and to go for it! So.. I did! We shot on the coldest day of the year, I am so grateful for not only Ashley & Jen (and her hubby!) braving the cold, but Tara, Mike, Brooke and Kenny.. My insanely beautiful and handsome models! You would have never known that they were literally freezing! I am head over heels in love with this shoot and the beautiful work all of these vendors created! This shoot was recently featured on Fab You Bliss, I am SO honored and excited they loved this shoot!

Lima, its small. There is no denying that. But the TALENT that is in and around this town is insane. I’ve found, now don’t be offended, Lima is stuck in this box. Did you know that you can have an insanely gorgeous black tie wedding, here in LIMA?! I want to introduce you to some of my favorite vendors in the business. They are incredibly talented and easily some of the sweetest people! Thank you ALL SO much for your creativity, hard work and support!!
