Winter’s Angel

Remember the first time you ever saw a bride when you were a little girl? You were mesmerized because she looked like a princess, or even an angel! You couldn’t decide which but you knew that one day, you wanted to look just like that! And now…your time has arrived!  

Polly from Poppies came up with an angelic themed stylized shoot at The Century Center in South Bend! This shoot design was breathtaking, inspirational and unique – the perfect way to end 2020, with a touch of hope. We loved the way Poppies mixed different elements and colors. The details played together so stunningly.   

Poppies specializes in floral design and that is clearly seen throughout the shoot. The flowers used for the centerpieces and bouquet were red roses, red dahlias, white dahlias, Christmas dahlias, white standards, white lisianthus, red berries, winter pine, dusty miller, Italian ruscus, silver dollar eucalyptus, white ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus.  

If you are looking to add some unique décor ideas or beautifully made tablescapes, look no further than AAYS Event Rentals! They have everything from backdrop drapery, couches, tables, plates, stemware, flatware and so much more! They are super friendly and very detail oriented. They make planning your wedding day seem like a breeze. 

Want to really “wow” your guests? Incorporating Events by ProShow into your wedding is an investment you want to make. ProShow excels in lighting and can definitely make your wedding day sparkle. You see their touch in the elegant ivory draping, gorgeous rattan lanterns, 2-tier crystal chandelier, uplighting, and pin lighting that really showcased the stunning decor. ProShow offers many other services other than lighting which includes DJ, story book video, special effect lighting, and more! 

The Century Center is a wonderful location to have your wedding reception. Many weddings have their ceremonies there as well with the beautiful view of the Saint Joseph River in the background. There are many different options that you can choose from at the Century Center to have your wedding. They have a great hall where you will see stunning floor to ceiling windows or their ballroom that has a beautiful landscaped terrace only steps away. The possibilities are endless!  

Can we take a moment and admire the angel wings that Poppies created for the model! They were made of pampas grass, palmetto leaves and dried wheat giving it an earthy vibe.  

We absolutely adore working with JB Photography! Not only is she personable and makes you feel like you have been lifelong friends, but she knows exactly what to photograph and how to get each and every photo to look magazine worthy. Having Jessica Burns photograph your wedding, you will simply cherish your photos for many years to come! 

The hair and makeup, created by Bethza Professional Makeup Artist & Studio and Marissa Lehman from L&M Hair Design, completed the winter angel themed look.  Bethza did an amazing job on Kelli’s makeup giving her a neutral smokey eye and a pop of color on the lips. The loose curls and side swept hair gave an effortless yet delicate appearance.  

Our model, Kelli, looked stunning in this modern, curved V-neckline silhouette gown that falls into a ball gown skirt of tiered tulle provided by Simply Yours Bridal & Formal Wear. We loved how feminine and delicate this gown looked giving it an angelic appearance!  

Sweet-Em’s Cake Shoppe created this beautiful five-tier, all white cake with intricate details in the design. We loved how Poppies paired it with pale yellow floral pieces. Can a cake really be too beautiful to eat? You can be the judge on that!  

The perfect way to warm up on a cold winter’s day is with a nice warm cup of hot cocoa! American Espresso Catering Co. is a mobile coffee bar that you can have at your reception or bridal parties for you and your guests to enjoy! They offer coffees, iced and hot lattes, espresso, cappuccino, hot tea, smoothies, hot chocolate and so much more! You can customize your drink menu for your guests to choose from.
