Belle Isle Styled Shoot

I wanted to kick this wedding season off with a bang and get some creative juices flowing! I'm a firm believer in you attract the work you create. So I grabbed some of my wedding business besties (besties as in best in the biz DUH!) and we created the most amazing styled shoot on Belle Isle in Detroit. 

I knew right off the bat that Jen House Design had to be involved. If you're not familiar with their work you need to stop reading this right now (yes, I'm serious!) and head over to their website or instagram and just bask in the floral goodness! You'll thank me later! I gave them a pretty vague idea of what I had in mind (wildflowers for one bouquet, and big leafy greens for the other) and they as ALWAYS blew it out of the water! The bouquets and boutineres they created were simply STUNNING. Like....they knocked it out of the park, scream, happy dance, happy cry, goodness. 

And of course we needed someone to capture all of it! I couldn't think of anyone better than Hannah Metler from Lola Grace Photography . She is just the sweetest person, and did such an amazing job at capturing the day! She is an incredibly talented photographer and I was SO lucky to have her shoot for us! 

I love both of the looks that I created for the shoot. Braids are still so popular and a huge request at every single wedding I do so I knew I wanted to have a look with a braid. My model Angela had the most perfect hair for this huge fishtail braid. I called her my "boho" bride and we kept her makeup really light and ethereal. My other model Sagen was my more "glam" bride. I knew I wanted her to rock a really bold lip and she pulled it off so amazingly!! Since we did her makeup more dramatic I wanted to do something more simple with her hair so we just went for a classic curly style. I love both of the looks so much! 

Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot! I hope you love them as much as I do!!
