If you’ve been following along with me on instagram you’ll know there’s a fabulously fun wedding coming up on the HGE roster. It has a lot to do with unicorns and glitter, and rainbow and cowboys. And it’s been nothing sort of a wonderfully creative challenge that’s truly opened my eyes to a whole other level of artistry and design. Janet and Jon are both artists hailing from the Windy City with a sense of imagination I’ve come to so respect and admire. These two will be getting married at long last on June 2nd, and last week we finally joined forces with Kelly Braman to bring their fairytale fantasy to life. Their engagement session had some styled elements in it like the floral crown I created (and secretly want to wear in my office every day,) Janet’s bouquet, Jon’s cowboy-esque attire and the unicorn inspired hair piece and tulle tail fashioned by make up and hair artist Rebecca Gohl. There’s so much eye candy here captured beautiful by Kelly. Janet and Jon, this whole planning process has been such a pleasure and the countdown is on!
Janet’s bridal bouquet will look similar to this mock up but with the addition of purple kale, blue, purple and red anemones, thistle and a few other quirky additions. Pretty blooms have been important to the couple throughout the planning process and I had such a blast designing their florals based around such unique and out of the box concepts and colors. The ribbon streamers will also be a design element used throughout the event as a nod to the whimsical fairytale themes Janet so loves. Oh and those are mini pineapples in that bouquet! Fun stuff right, guys?
We found this adorable pink trailer out in the Rockford countryside and decided to use it as a backdrop with Janet in her unicorn costume. It fit perfectly with her brightly hued highlights and gorgeous make up thanks to Rebecca’s artistry. And the sun was setting fast at this point in the shoot giving us the most delicious light. How handsome is Jon in a cowboy hat? Wait until you see both the bride and groom’s big day attire. The day of photos are going to be rad.
