Community Over Competition
We are so excited to announce our amazing collaboration with local small business in the Wichita Area!
All of these amazing vendors had a part in our creative collaboration, above you can click on their business name and view more of their work!
This shoot is inspired by the love of color, both Handmade, custom designed gowns that were dip-dyed. Blue is a chiffon “tent” dress with detachable lace train. Purple is a Swiss dot English net over charm The gowns as well as the tux the grooms are wearing are custom made and tailored for a more flexible wear. Vanya Designs does it all when it comes to the way your attire fits to you and your personality!
Our collaboration was set in The Hudson in the heart of Wichita, Ks. With raw and naked brick walls as well as the amazing event space. The main event space showcases uncovered curved wood vaulted ceilings with cement floors and two chandeliers. The Hudson also offers a wonderful bridal suite as well as manly man cave with access to the bar. In the bridal suite you will also find a little cubby for cuddling or a place for privacy for bridal portraits and first look. There is also a smaller room for catering and/or the cake table. The most important part of the day is catching the bride and groom feed each other cake in hopefully a fun playful way and making a mess!
For this shoot we chose to showcase the cake as our main event. The cake was provided by Patsy’s Cakes and more. The cake is designed with gold flakes as well as rock candy to give the crystal effect with a hint of blue coloring. The cake table is decorated with items from The Hudson as well as Avid Artistry.
Roseanna's Creative Illusions provided high quality custom made bouquets as well as a display for behind the cake table with greenery. The bouquets are hand made and the flowers and add ins are picked by Roseanna herself. They are real to touch meaning you can preserve them and have your bouquet for years to come and you can also take part in designing your own custom arrangement. The flowers also smelled so amazing I had the advantage of storing them in my car and delivering back to my studio and the smell just took over my car from the variety of five Roseanna made available to us for the shoot. I absolutely love the length that her bouquets give!
Hair and Makeup were also an important factor in our styled shoot. We sought out the best of the best to make our look come together flawlessly. We have Jessica Latham with Love is in the Hair. Hair accessories were provided by Jessica as well. Her styling had a lasting effect all evening with the shoot and as well as the models date night! Kree Pena Makeup Artist provided her help with her artistry and bringing the shoot together with her flawless applications. Her bridal makeup photographed beautifully and as well wasn’t over dramatic in person. The makeup application was completely up to Kree to create independently and she defiantly listened and understood our view for our shoot. If you are looking for two sweet yet professional artists on your wedding morning Jessica and Kree make an unstoppable team.
We hope you enjoy these styled wedding portraits as much as we do! Saturday was just a perfect day for creativity to flow and everything just came together perfectly too!! I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the vendors who helped make this happen!! Also A HUGE CONGRATS to the two couples photographed as they are celebrating 19 and 20 years together! That is a life goal!! #goals
Happy planning and congratulations to you on your engagement we hope to hear from you soon!

Our mission is to launch a positive self-image initiative by adding inspiring words and images to every restroom in the Mulvane School District because... Our Kids Matter!

This includes new paint for all the stalls (no more beige!), paint brushes and rollers, painter's tape, drop cloths, vinyl, weeding tools and cut mats as well as a sealant to make our art as permanent as possible.
