Wedding Inspiration Shoot — Woven Warmth at Point Labaddie Brewery

Early spring means that it’s time to start thinking ahead to summer. Spring brings about those teasingly warm days, glimpses of what summer could bring. And while this spring is just a bit different, that means that my longing for summer is even more intense.

With summer means plenty of summer weddings. And if you’re still planning the details of your big day, I have a treat for you.

It’s no surprise that I love warm, muted tones and earthy neutrals. I find inspiration in the high desert landscapes of Utah and Joshua Tree. One of my favorite vacations that my husband and I took was a two-week road trip through Utah’s National and State Parks, camping on top of his car along the way. There’s something so beautiful about that landscape and as much as I can, I try to utilize it in my designs.

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite shots from a late summer inspiration shoot. Complete with muted warm tones, oriental rugs, great boho wedding style, and a craft brewery. If that doesn’t check off every box of the perfect wedding list, I don’t know what does.

Behind the Scenes: Chic and Contemporary Styled Shoot at Slate in Downtown St. Louis

It’s #WeddingWednesday and I’m so excited to share these amazing photos that I just got back from my good friend and wedding photographer, Bri Whitman of Bri Whitman Photography

In February, she asked me to create an invitation suite to be included in this inspiration shoot happening at one of St. Louis’ newest event spaces, Slate. Slate is located in Downtown St. Louis and is owned by the Bailey family. If you’re from the area and know anything about the local St. Louis restaurant scene, you’ll know that the Bailey group owns some of the best and most popular food destinations in the city; ranging from Bailey’s Range—a burger and milkshake bar downtown to Small Batch—a restaurant that specializes in whiskeys and vegetarian fare, and a couple brunch spots in between. Recently they branched out into special event venues and own both Willow and their sister space Slate, both located on Locust in the heart of Downtown St. Louis.

Introducing the Leighwood Collection; Modern Loft Styled Shoot

It’s time to get your first look into the invitation suites that are part of the newly launched Leighwood Collection! I was lucky enough to be approached by Silvia of Snapdragon Studios to contribute to a local styled shoot and after hearing about the inspiration for the shoot (modern loft with lots of greenery), I had the perfect invitation suite in mind.

The shoot was such dream to work on, and took place in a minimal, modern loft event space in Downtown St. Louis (North13th) with white, exposed brick walls, dark concrete floors, and an abundance of natural light, you really couldn’t ask for a better location to host an intimate wedding reception or ceremony.

The team of vendors that Silvia put together for the shoot include some amazing talent from the St. Louis area, including photographer Jacoby from Jacoby Photo and Design. Her unique style of shooting and editing made this styled shoot stand out from anything I had ever seen before.

Keep reading to see more photos from the shoot and to get your first look at the new Leighwood Collection, a catalog of semi-customizable wedding invitation suites for couples who want the custom design experience, but is out of their budget.
