A Gatsby Styled Shoot

Gatsby styled shoot 12-2018 (133 of 184).jpg

Every year about two to three times a year we collaborate with other wedding vendors to create a fun unique styled shoot. Styled shoots allow us creatives to step out of the box to use our creative side to full potential. This shoot we went for something sleek, like an old Hollywood theme. With putting this shoot together we kept our colors and theme on our mind. Once picking the beautiful long sleeve dress from White Traditions Bridal in Saint Charles the theme was screaming more of a Gatsby vibe. Katie and Hillary the florist and even coordinator used white feathers for accents with the theme which made perfect sense for the Gatsby theme to be the final end to our product. This shoot was something that was dear to my heart I love the vintage sleek style. The location was held at Sunflower Hill Farm a brand new venue located in Defiance, Missouri. The venue is gorgeous with a sleek modern barn to a beautiful open floor home that over looks the bluffs in Defiance. We are thanking all the vendor team from the bottom of our hearts to make this beautiful styled shoot come to life.

I met Jake and Olivia in high school. Jake and Olivia have been together since high school days. It is always so sweet to see two people so in love who are high school sweethearts. The day started with Olivia and her girls getting ready at her parents home. They all sipped on mimosas while the maid of honors finished there speeches. The boys were at Jake’s parents home which is up the street from Olivia’s parents. The guys all were eating White Castle’s while they got ready for the big day.

Olivia and Jake tied the knot at The Old Peace Chapel in Defiance. The chapel was so quaint and flourished with tons of natural light. The reception was at Trigg banquet center. The reception was a huge party with tons of people on the dance floor from high school friends to family members. Congrats to Olivia + Jake!!
