Today we have a gorgeous wedding inspiration shoot to share with you. Created by Summer Jean Photography and White Dress Events, both of Holland, Michigan; it reflects their love of Michigan’s beautiful lakes, vintage decor, and pretty peonies. The the vintage coral and turquoise wedding decor ideas feel like summer and romance all rolled into one, and I love how the floral motif practically jumps off the floral arrangements right onto the beautiful papers and vintage plates!
From West Michigan wedding photographer, Summer Osborn of Summer Jean Photography: It all began one evening when Cassie Celestin of White Dress Events and I we were meeting for coffee and the cafe experienced a power outage. Even that could not stop us from talking about wedding details that we love and how it would be fun to plan a styled shoot together, even if it meant sitting in the dark! Then and there, we decided we would do an inspiration/styled shoot including all of our favorite things – romance, anything vintage, and the nearby shores of Lake Michigan. We did the shoot at Holland State park, with our real life couple, Amanda and Bryan, who are getting married this July!
We wanted to feature our beautiful lakeshore area and wanted to show couples how they could have a beach wedding without the typical sand and seashells motif. We immediately went to work on planning our shoot. We selected a color scheme of coral, aqua and white and enlisted the help of several local vendors we have worked with before. We knew we could trust them with our vision, so we told them what we were looking for and let them do the rest. We understand that as artists and professionals, when a client trusts us 100%, we do our best work. We wanted our vendors to have that same feeling and to have a final product that they could be excited about. It is very important for brides to hire professionals who really have the experience and know what they are doing. We always recommend hiring vendors who really understand your vision!
