Leo's Loft Open House

Leonardo’s Bridal Boutique in Rocky River, Ohio has recently opened the upstairs of their beautiful and intimate space called Leo’s Loft. The loft will primarily serve as a pre-wedding gathering and prep space, but would also be a perfect place for lingerie showers or any other girly get togethers. To celebrate the opening of the loft, Leonardo’s owners, Kate and Libby invited a few local wedding vendors to join in the celebration. This talented group included Emily from Emily Millay Photography, Melanie from Oak & Honey Events, Kate from Lovely Paperie & Gifts, and me! It was a fabulous evening of meeting brides, eating cupcakes provided by Main Street Cupcakes, good conversation with new and old vendor friends, and sipping bubbly, of course!

Collected 2014

I’m VERY late to the ‘sharing of Collected 2014 photos’ party, but it has to be done (even if this awesome event happened way back in June)! Thanks to our wonderful hosts, Mallory and Justin of Mallory + Justin Photographers, I was able to share some of my floral creations with other Northeast Ohio wedding and event vendors, and it was an experience that I’m looking forward to having again in 2015.

Everything was beautiful! The amazing Waynesburg, Ohio property, the models, the paper goods, the baked goods, the furniture, the styling, and the list goes on! I had the opportunity to meet some great people and we shared a fantastic day together!

Here are the vendors:

Furniture & Accessories: Borrow | Vintage + Eclectic Rentals

Creative Styling: With Love and Whimsy Events

Makeup: Maggie Kleinman

Paper Goods: Baci Designer

Baked Goods: Salvino Dolci

Headbands: Little White Feather Shop

The artists behind the cameras were stupendous! These talented photographers did a beautiful job capturing our day of creating!

The following is just a modicum of photos from the large collection of shots. Some many have already seen, while other lesser-known gems, that I found special in their own glorious and understated ways, really deserve a proper post, too! Enjoy!
