A Whimsical Romance

The Chapel at The Morris Estate in Southwest Michigan is a charming venue for weddings dating back to 1938. The chapel holds up to 180 people inside and even has bride and groom lounges for you and your wedding party to get ready for your big day. There is even a quaint little schoolhouse that is on The Morris Estate Property that was rescued from demolition and is the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.

With the venue nestled right in front of a beautifully maintained woods, AAYS Event Rentals created the most stunning outdoor tablescape. The hanging rattan lanterns above the tablescape looked incredible. The warm and inviting colors of greens, oranges, peaches and yellows embodied a fall wedding.

Poppies did an amazing job with the floral for this Stylized Shoot. She used peach ranunculus, toffee roses, blush roses, dahlias, peach stock, Phalaenopsis orchids, copper beach, eucalyptus, Queen Anne’s Lace and Sun Palm leaves. The circular arch on the wall behind the altar inside the church was so beautifully made. It added in a pop of color and brought warmth into an all-white space.

Our model, Leighana Burden, looked stunning in a gown provided by Here Comes the Dress. Their new location recently opened in Granger. The loose off-the-shoulder sleeves are so elegant and feminine. The lace bodice and lace detailed train on the gown is eye-catching!

Ilona Warner styled Leighana’s hair in a low-side swept ponytail with loose curls and small braids throughout. It created an illusion of carefree sophistication.

Ashley Urban Artistry is the makeup guru! Staying along with the color palette of the shoot, Ashley created a natural-looking eye design with beautifully bold lashes and a mauve lip. Leighana’s makeup looked fresh and youthful!

We love working with JB Photography! She is the ultimate pro at capturing the best photos of your big day! She makes you and your bridal party comfortable in front of the camera and creates photos that look natural and not staged.

You can never go wrong with Sweet-Em’s Cake Shoppe. They always do an incredible job creating the cake of your dreams! For this shoot, they made a four-tier all-white cake except for the bottom tier, which had a marble effect. We loved how intricate the floral design on the middle tiers looked.
