Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, I’m excited to share this gorgeous styled inspiration shoot done by an awesome team of local Columbus wedding and event professionals. Though it takes a lot of work and planning, I so thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with so many talented people. Special thanks to Jennifer Kontomerkos from The Finer Things Event Planning for taking the reigns and helping make this whole thing come together and happen!

These blush satin Badgley Mischka bridal shoes from La Jeune Mariee certainly don’t disappoint! And those heels wrapped in crystals – perfection for your big day.

The flowers for this shoot done by Madison House Designs were absolutely perfect. This bridal bouquet especially, as it’s the perfect mix of the lush, full and formal. I love the black accents brought in through the anemones (hope I got that name right!)

And BOOM! That gorgeous beaded Lazaro dress and incredible ruffled skirt cascading down the candle filled staircase just screams drama and timeless glamour!

How perfect is this bridal hair and makeup? Amy’s gorgeous green eyes are a nice little happy accident for our emerald and gold shoot – and perfect with those emerald teardrop earrings.

And when you have a dress this fabulous, you certainly can’t forget about the bridesmaids. This dark green Amsale gown is from La Jeune Mariee Maids and Social Occasions right here in the Short North. Brides gotta keep their gals looking great too! The crystal belt from Sara Gabriel just added the right amount of formal bling.
