Christy and Nick at The Manor House

video

What can we say about Christy & Nick? Well for starters, they are one of the sweetest, friendliest most genuine couples we have ever met. Christy is set on winning the world over one smile at a time and Nick is working right along with her!

Christy and Nick had a lovely morning wedding with a brunch reception to follow. We don't do many of those, but it was very lovely. Guests drank Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and Champagne, while enjoying muffins, fruit and donuts (yumm!) during the cocktail hour. The waffle bar, omelet station and other brunch goodies were thoroughly enjoyed, while listing to the live jazz band...the perfect brunch companion!

For desert Christy and Nick had gourmet cupcakes from the Sugar Cupcakery, which was recently on the Food Network's reality show 'Cupcake Wars.' After brunch guests made good use of the dance floor and danced the morning away. The after party continued into the afternoon and evening at The Fox and Hound in Mason for some added fun!

Christy and Nick are spending their honeymoon on the lush beaches of Hawaii...so jealous, especially since we're expecting another round of snow this week! Feel free to leave messages for our newlyweds in the "Share the Love" section below. You can also see and tag more images from Christy and Nick's wedding on the studio's Facebook page.
Christy and Nick had some wonderful wedding vendors. Check them out!

One Stop Wedding Designs & Printing!

We've made posts before about all the cool products that we offer our couples that they can use for just about everything they need for their wedding. Basically if it can be printed on, we can do it! Joshua and Kristen are doing a destination wedding in Florida with a 'Send Off Reception' here in Ohio. We did all the design work and printing for their save-the-dates, party invitations, guestbook, wedding favors and welcome bags. We are also doing their programs, place cards and menus too.


Before we did their engagement session, we came up with a plan for what they wanted to accomplish with their session. We knew that we needed to get a guestbook and possibly save-the-dates and invitations out of their session. With that in mind, we incorporated the colors of their Ohio party along with the chalkboard 'thought bubbles.' We used the 'thought bubbles' to make their guestbook more interactive by posing questions to their guests. We also used the chalkboards as part of their invitation design.


Their invitations were 6x9 glossy postcards with rounded corners, which were then shipped in silver pearl envelopes. We used the chalkboards with a 'Thank You' message to make stickers for their party favors.

Their wedding in Florida has a totally different color palette and feel from their Ohio party. Wanting a 'contemporary beach' wedding vibe, they chose bright colors and the starfish as part of their wedding brand. We designed and printed their pocket invitations on pearl paper with pearl envelopes for a beautiful shimmer.

We also designed playing cards, candy bags and stickers to personalize their 'Welcome Bags' for the guests arriving at the hotel. As they finalize the last of their wedding details, we will also be printing their programs, menus and place cards.

It's easy to create a cohesive look when everything is designed and printed together. We can help you with any of your wedding design (logos, fonts, colors, etc.) as well as any of your printing needs. One stop shopping makes for happy, stress free brides!

Laura & Matthew

Laura and Matthew are getting married this July on what will probably be a hot summer day, so in preparation for that we did their engagement session during the cold winter months. We played around some of Dayton's finest locations (haha) going for a fun urban vibe for the background of their session.

They are truly a sweet couple and we look forward to photographing their wedding later this year!

Travel Dates...Oh my!

Between judging, speaking and destination weddings, this winter/early spring will be busy with a lot of travel. While traveling we do try to keep up with voice mails and email, but it can be tricky sometimes depending upon where we are.

For more timely updates, we do check and post on Facebook. We appreciate your understanding! Thanks!
