Styled wedding shoots are no joke. Ha! What started off as a tiny whimsical idea, turned into a full fledged affair that morphed into a REAL wedding reception! David and Jess were never truly celebrated in the way they deserved and also never had professional wedding pictures taken. So, putting this together meant that much more. It was inspiring to work in the spirit of community rather than competition. This was made possible because of the generosity of so many incredible local businesses. Our host site and shooting location was a beautiful organic farm in Dalton, Ohio called Venture Heritage Farm. The wedding dress and suit came from Lavender Bridal Salon. The jewelry from Liza Michelle Jewelry. Flowers from Rachel Forrer Flowers. The cake from Hazel and Rye Artisan Bakery. Make-up and hair from RIG & CO. Paper suites and name cards from Abiart Creative. Plates from Paper Wolf Ceramics. Reception donuts from Peace, Love, & Little Donuts. Styling by Jani Hershberger. Water color art from Caylie Troyer. Models are David Sparling and Jessica Velasquez.
