Once you have selected your venue, it really helps determine the rest of the design for your wedding day. That is so true for this pin-worthy styled shoot I’m sharing today. The location is actually an abandoned college and the owner, Jim Parker, likes to have artists create installations in the space. The current branch installation in the venue fit in perfectly with their design ideas including black dahlias, antique keys, turtle shells + antlers. With the peeling paint, stacks of vintage chairs, and gorgeous window light, the space was transformed into bridal-esque beauty. Concept + photography by Apryl Ann Photography and the gorgeous flowers are by Bows & Arrows. Such pretty eye candy for a Monday + hopefully inspiring for all you Fall brides!
I think this bouquet is one of the prettiest I’ve seen…
Pretty ombre petal cake by Sugar Bee Sweets.
Thanks so much to all these talented vendors for sharing their creativity with us today!

Looooove this! Those vintage L-O-V-E keys always get me. Do you know where I might find something like this?
AHH! I love the LOVE Keys! I’m getting married next September and we will be making our own center pieces using wine bottles (also seen above) but minus the floral arrangements. I hope they turn out nice :)

I especially enjoy the branch installation at the beginning, mixed with the flowers around. Poetic and a bit surrealistic.
