The Lovestruck Event: Part III (The Hotel Photel Photobooth)

We were lucky to have some of the best photographers in Nebraska as vendors at The Lovestruck Event. I have always loved Brighten Photography. If you’re looking for a photographer who brings energy and passion into wedding photography – you have to meet Ben and Whitney of Brighten. I especially love their Hotel Photel photobooth which was featured at The Lovestruck Event. Check out all of the fun photos from the event below!

And now for a photo of Whitney and Ben – you can just tell they’re a blast to work with:

Lesley, Megan and I had to get in on the action too!

Ben and Whitney set up an online gallery, so you can download your Hotel Photel photos. Check it out here (hover over the images and click the download icon).

Here’s Part I and Part II of the Recap in case you missed it!

The Lovestruck Event Recap: Part II

We decided to have two mock tablescapes at the event to showcase how our vendors work together. The first tablescape was created by the Lovestru.ck team, Shamrock & Thistle, and Inclosed (the little cakes were made by Butterfly Bakery). We wanted to create something colorful and innovative but not overwhelming, so we balanced our bright colors with natural wooden elements like the farm table. True to this year’s theme, we used polka dots and stripes in the stationery, accessories and even in the floral arrangements (did you see that floral table runner!?!). Here’s what we came up with:

The second table was designed by Found and Flora and Porridge Papers. I love the natural and laid-back style mixed with a touch of whimsy. Porridge Papers brought in a picnic table, and the bicycle get-away vehicle and s’mores were adorable!

Lindsay + Andrew

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing a lot of photos from the weddings we designed this summer. I thought it would be best to start with a couple that is very special to me. When my sister Lindsay got engaged to Andrew almost two years ago, I was excited by the opportunity to work with a couple who completely trusts my design skills and would allow me to run with their vision and dreams for their wedding. We decided to style the wedding around Lindsay’s love of Europe, especially the romantic city of Paris. We used antique gold vessels from Nostalgia, and Mark from Shamrock and Thistle filled them with gorgeous blooms in their ivory, blush, peach, and black color palette.

True to Parisian culture, we create a patisserie filled with whimsical cupcakes and authentic European sweets like Paris Brest, Macarons, and Opera Cake from Delice European Bakery. We also brought in Lindsay and Andrew’s obsession with their cat Monkey. (I refer to their cat as my nephew, because they talk about him like he’s their child.) We referenced him in the Patisserie name which translates to “The Little Kitten Pastry Shop”. We also placed a custom sticker of a cat with a word bubble that read “Miam Miam” (which is French for “yum yum”) on the inside of the take home patisserie boxes as a little surprise for guests.

It was a beautiful wedding, so please enjoy all of the stunning images below captured by Love Equals.

Time for… a little change

As most of you can guess, I’ve spent the last few months finishing wedding season and putting The Lovestruck Event together, but I’ve also been working on some extra special projects. Lovestru.ck has been slowly evolving over the last few years, and I finally feel like I have a clear vision of where I want my business to go. I’ve been working with some great artists to update my logo, I’ll be redesigning and coding a new Lovestru.ck website, and all of our wedding packages are getting revamped to better suit the needs of our clients.

I’m back into my blogging routine, so you’ll start to see photos from all of the weddings we worked on this summer, recaps of The Lovestruck Event, and sneak peeks of the new Lovestru.ck look. I’m excited for all of the changes, and I’m most excited to see what all of you will think of the new designs.

Have a great week!
