I would love to tell you that Chanel inspired this shoot, but it didn’t. It inspired so much more!
In fact, it was the Chanel brand that inspired a whole brand redesign for Visions Event Studio. Classic Taste for the Modern Bride embodies a lifestyle that we wanted the new brand to portray.
As I was building a branding board with my dear friend Julie Hanan the board started to scream out to me to make it into a live style shoot. Taking all the inspiration from our brand that is inspired by classic styles and timeless elegance with an avant garde modern flair, we had a tall order to fill with Chanel being the standard.
I set out to make our new brand a wedding style shoot, what I found when looking around for Chanel inspired shoots, is there is a ton of pink in them. With our neutral color tones, I wanted a touch of pink but not for it to be the primary colors. This is when Natural Beauties Floral Inc. jumped in, they had the exact vision as I did for the shoot and suggested pink only in the floral.
We were 100% convinced the moment we laid eyes on the Wilder Mansion that this would be the perfect backdrop for the shoot and the staff were so amazing to work with, I can’t wait to work with them again soon!
The details were are coming together, and I will never forget the day that Belle Vie Bridal Couture invited us into their boutique on Oak street to use any dress that we needed for the shoot. What is a shoot without two killer dresses, we chose two couture gowns that were absolutely stunning, and exactly the style we needed for a matchup of Classic and Modern Style.
We had the best vendors from Chicago that assisted in making this shoot a dream come true, thank you and of course to the very talented Emilia Jane Photography, I will never forget the day she said yes to the shoot, I was on cloud nine for hours. Knowing that her creative eye was going to make it all come together, you are amazing Emilia and it was an honor working with you!
I can’t forget to mention Elysia Root Cakes, her cake was out of this world insanely gorgeous! I didn’t get to taste it, but trust me, she is the best! And well, I’m definitely finding it hard to just give credit with names, I loved each and every vendor so much for their involvement it’s so hard not to go into detail for each one. The Festive Frog, for your support at the 11th hour, and for the wonderful service that only you two ladies can give. To Elaine with Shadowbox Dreams who went over and beyond, I couldn’t have done it without you, and you know I love your gorgeous furniture too!
Lastly, a very special thank you to Annette Piton with The Rock Agency, and Clay Boutté with Factor Runway, our fabulous models.
