I haven’t had the opportunity to do many styled photo shoots as of yet but this one was so much fun and I can’t wait to do my next one! Elycia Feldman of Wild Blossoms Studio approached me with her idea of creating a vintage, rustic and Bohemian themed event and we rounded up some other talented wedding vendors to contribute their essential items to the project. You’ll see them all highlighted in the photos below. A big thank you to Platte River Fort in Greeley, CO for allowing us to invade their venue and utilize their barn and property. I have been a preferred vendor with them for several years and have greatly loved the relationship we have built.
Sarah O Jewelry was the contributing jeweler to our project and she provided these beautiful, earthy rose gold and moonstone pieces.
Let’s talk about this dress from Dani West Bridal in Erie! Patty is the owner of Dani West and loves to give her customers a relaxing and customized experience in her stylish boutique. I personally visited her shop and loved the unique dresses she had on display. This dress suited the styled shoot and the model, perfectly.
These custom moccasins are made by Tread Light Gear. They are hand-made by a small team of people in Eugene, OR of beautiful and durable eco-positive materials.
The Sharp Suiter provided the groom’s apparel for this shoot, including monogramming the cuffs of his shirt. He cut a handsome figure in his vest, bowtie and white shirt.
Hair and make-up were done by Krysta Klinzmann of Nunn. She has been a cosmetologist for the past 11 years and has done over 150 weddings. She has her studio in Nunn but travels all over for her wedding client’s needs. The hairpiece and bouquet are designed by Wild Blossoms Studio.
Elycia with Wild Blossoms Studio uses unique and interesting plants, colors and textures in her arrangements, creating artistic and one-of-a-kind floral pieces custom to your wedding vision. She loves earthy and natural things and likes to incorporate things like wood and husks and pressed flowers into her work.
The “ceremony” was simple and self-solemnized with an exchange of vows from a hand-made leather bound journal. The hanging market lights were provided by Scott Hittelman, owner of Lighting & Design by Scott. The greenery was added by Wild Blossoms Studio.
After the ceremony, it was my turn to take the couple to do wedding couple formals. The light was fading fast (it was January) so we literally were chasing it! But it made for beautiful, romantic, low-light photos, which are my favorite. In case you don’t know who I am, I’m Kristi with Hillside Studios of Greeley and Loveland.
The intimate reception was decorated simply with natural elements of wood and greens. It was an eclectic mixture of items and textures. The design was developed by Wild Blossoms Studio.
The cake was provided by The Cupcake Gypsies of Loveland and decorated by Wild Blossoms Studio with greens and artistic wood embellishments.
When the sun went down, we were able to fully appreciate the custom initials light setup that Lighting & Design By Scott did in the grove of trees on the property.
