HHE Featured: Dainty Obsessions Marsala Inspiration


Happy Monday Lovelies!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. The past week has been chock full of amazingness, including Veils + Cocktails (post to come) and this Marsala Inspired shoot being featured by our sweet friends at Dainty Obsessions blog this past Wednesday.

Robyn contacted me to help style this beautiful inspiration in December, shortly after the Pantone 2015 Color of the Year was announced. We shot at the Palmer House Stables in Solon, where the rustic elegance married beautifully with this warm color story!


We decided to keep it simple and focus on the beautiful, quiet moments that the bride has just before the ceremony. Some details included a beautiful gift from her love and reviewing her vows. This is such a precious time for a bride to get centered and focus on the wonderful life she is entering into, just minutes later. To collect her thoughts before pledging her love to her best friend.

How stunning are these florals?! You know how much I love blooms and Shelly‘s are some of my favorites. She is always on the front side of trends and her vision and passion for her craft are truly remarkable.

This vow print from Lindsay Letters is one of my all time favorites. Hope’s Bridal provided two beautiful gowns and some exclusive jewelry that our stunning model, Margie, wore to perfection!

This beautiful print is from the amazing Ashlee Proffitt! I adore every word on this print- “She fills her home and life with truth and joy.”

Robyn, thank you for inviting me to take part in this shoot and for the absolutely beautiful photos! You are truly talented and such a joy to create with! Thank you to Dainty Obsessions for the feature and the amazing vendor team that made this a reality. As always, without the passionate artists we are blessed to know, none of this would be possible.

Have a great week lovelies!

xoxo, Jenn
