Every single wedding we shoot is unique and special in its own way. Ian and Megan’s moody, jewel-toned wedding at the Dayton Arcade was no expectation. I absolutely love that they played with a less traditional color palette. Using black as an accent can be intimidating, but Ian and Megan incorporated it beautifully. Plus, the deep jewel tones looked incredible against the light and airy space at the Dayton Arcade. Have we mentioned how much we love shooting at this venue? The light and architecture create an amazing backdrop.
Ian and Megan did a fabulous job with the details, each piece reflecting their unique style. The florals created by The Flowerman were stunning. The color and textures combined to create a dramatic and whimsical bouquet, unlike anything we have seen before. Ian knew exactly what he wanted when it came to music, hand-selecting everything that was played at the reception. And the black accent on Megan’s veil? Perfect!
If you are planning a wedding, be like Megan and Ian! Your wedding is the only one of its kind, so make it what you want. In fact, their only request was that they didn’t want anything to be “fake” (which we don’t do anyway, we are all about authenticity and real moments), but we understood what they meant. They didn’t want any manufactured moments. They just wanted us to capture it and let the real shine through in the images. Which we love! When you embrace your style and who you are, you wind up with a beautiful and unique event.
