Summer Paradise

Summer weddings are in full swing and are so much fun to attend! The possibilities are endless with outdoor and indoor options.

The new Downtown St. Joe County Public Library built a Community Learning Center right off Michigan Street in South Bend. This new venue has a ballroom inside along with a beautifully maintained courtyard! The ballroom is on the main floor across from the entrance to the courtyard which is perfect for a reception and/or ceremony. The ballroom can be divided into two separate spaces and can hold up to 300 people. The modern décor suits many brides’ wedding dreams and designs.

For this shoot, Burns Special Events created the perfect summer color palette! With the bright colors and wicker furniture, we loved how it embodied a tropical theme. One of our favorite spots they designed was the outdoor lounge area under the pergola.

Burns Special Events not only designs your wedding day, but they can also provide the floral! For this shoot, they created island vibe floral arrangements for the tablescape and lounge area! The bright pink, coral, and orange floral matched perfectly with the wicker and gold décor! The flowers that were used to create this look were coral charm peony, orange lily, pink lisianthus, coral hypericum, orange tulips, pink larkspur, country home roses, playa blanca roses, and more.

Monica Z Photography did an incredible job capturing all the fine details in this shoot. Her artistic ideas on the positioning of the model and lighting is perfection! With talent like hers, your wedding photos are destined to be amazing.

Our model, Ashley Varner, looked stunning in a spaghetti strap sweetheart neckline lace gown provided by Simply Yours Bridal and Formal Wear. The intricate beading details on this gown are breathtaking!

Ashley has the most amazing naturally curly hair and Hair By Samye wanted to embrace her natural curls. Her loose updo with random curls falling looked so effortless yet very chic.

Allee Do My Makeup is a makeup wizard! We loved how she too embraced Ashley’s natural beauty and added a slight smokey eye and bold lip yet leaving the face simple!

Sweet-Em’s Cake Shoppe created such a unique and beautiful cake! We loved the simplicity of it but the love letter scroll on the bottom tier was absolutely adorable. The floral that Burns provided for the cake really added a summertime vibe.
