I've had an office space at Collingwood Arts Center in Toledo for almost a year now. Every time I walk by the beautiful theater inside the building, I imagine a glamorous wedding taking place in there. After chatting with Amber, the office manager, about weddings at Collingwood Arts Center, we thought it would be so fun to do a styled shoot at Collingwood Arts Center. We hoped it would help get the word out that you can, in fact, get married in this beautiful 1900's building that's so full of history! It just so happened that April, with Your Perfect Day, had just stopped in and left her business card with Amber.
I then met with April to see if she would be interested in coordinating on a styled shoot at CAC. She was so excited by the idea. She totally took the reins and planned everything, because that's what she does and she does it so very well! Any bride would certainly be in good hands to have April coordinating their day!
We had a vision of a dark and moody feel with plenty of candles and gorgeous rich colors. The team of vendors that coordinated on this shoot sure pulled that off! I love how everything worked so well together to give a modern dramatic look with a bit of a vintage feel.
Beauty by Billy Jo did such an amazing job on Jessica's makeup. It went so well with her bouquet!
Here hair is looking stunning thanks to Christah Anteau of @Toledohair419.
Belle Amour Bridal was kind enough to loan us this lovely dress. I just adore the beading details.
Planning and decorating was executed by April with Your Perfect Day. She also does rentals, linens, and floral so make sure you check with her before beginning your planning process. She can help in so many ways!
Jessica Martin made the most beautiful bride! She also owns Crowned Cakes by Jess and made this stunning cake.
The hand lettering on this seating chart was done by the talented D. Nicole Lettering.
The flowers, I've been swooning over these flowers since I first saw them, they are so unique! I really loved this bridal bouquet. I love the dramatic lights and darks! Jenni Morlock with Your Perfect Day created all the flowers you see in this shoot.
This is the stunning theater at Collingwood Arts Center!
Thanks you so much to the amazing group of vendors that came together to make this session happen!
