Style Me Pretty Feature | The Highline Hotel Radiant Orchid Wedding

KEH_7966

Last December when my sweet from Emily + her husband Aaron were visiting from San Fran they stayed at this old seminary turned hotel in Chelsea.  I was instantly intrigued, and upon exploring the space with Em + taking our Christmas card pics there for our fashion blog I knew without a doubt that The Highline Hotel was a space I wanted to create in.  Fast forward a month and I began thinking of ways to mix my two passions:  fashion + wedding photography.  What better way to do both than incorporate Pantone's Color of the Year:  Radiant Orchid?

For the fashion forward bride who wants to incorporate pieces of Radiant Orchid my suggestion:  stay with classic silhouettes and add pops of color in your details.  From jewelry to nail polish to bouquets, to lavender mimosas there are a 1,000 different ways to incorporate orchid into your wedding.  If you're feeling a bit adventurous go bold like our bride + bridesmaids did!

This shoot took a village + I am beyond humbled and grateful at the amazingly creative + talented ladies that came together to make this shoot happen.  Thank you for helping to make this vision a reality + 100 times better than I could have ever hoped for!  If you don't know these fabulous people, get to know them!  And brides if you're still looking for NYC vendors…these are your gals!

Be sure + check out Style Me Pretty today for the full feature on this shoot!

XO,

Kat

A Brooklyn Bride and Her Maids | Southern Weddings Feature

Last month when I was in NYC shooting Bridal Market for Southern Weddings Magazine, I had the p-r-i-v-e-l-e-g-e to work with some of my absolute favorite East Coast vendors on an editorial Southern Charm meets Brooklyn shoot for Southern Weddings. I kind of want to write an Ode to the lovely ladies that made this shoot a reality, because I am just so blown away that I got the opportunity to work with such talented, driven, and sweet ladies.  (I will spare you of my poetry though!)

Please check out the feature that Southern Weddings did on the shoot HERE, and enjoy this Southern Meets City shoot!

Jackie Weppner of Merci New York was responsible for the amazing wardrobe styling from the:  2013 Reem Acra Wedding Gown via Gabriella Bridal Salon, to the polka dot tights, to the 2013 Donna Morgan dresses, to the Dolly Pearl Dresses, to the clutches, to the earrings, to the shoes.  Not only does Jackie have impeccable taste, she is one of the hardest workers I know, and man does she know how to style!  We've worked together the last several years, and I am consistently impressed by her!

Each time I work with the ladies of FaceTime Beauty I am just giddy.  Ladies of the East Coast, if you need your hair and make-up done call them.  Maysoon and Holly of FaceTime Beauty did a flawless job on all of the ladies.

Miss Kelly of 2H Flowers made all the delicate and feminine floral arrangements for the day.  I just wanted to take them all home with me!

Molly of Glitter + Rye is responsible for all the yumminess of the DIY Whiskey Bar (I mean really...how awesome is that!), the bow tie rack, the sear sucker napkins, the carmel popcorn, and all the wonderful details.  Molly is one busy woman, and was such a gem to hop on board with this shoot and make my vague ideas become a tasty reality.
