Calhoun Beach Club

With the holidays comes a lot of engagements.   We’ve been seeing our fair share of newly engaged couples starting to look at venues.  To help out, we’re going to post Style Boards for a number of venues to help with your site selection.

Hopefully the Style Boards show you a variety of color and layout options in the space. 

Thank you to La Vie Photography, Wendy Woods Photography, Studio Laguna, Kelly Brown Weddings and Staja Studios for the images used in the Style Boards.

Fusion of Photography and Video

When deciding on adding videography, a new option is a fusion of photography and video with Staja Studios.  A big advantage is that the photo and video shooting works collabratively to ensure that the end product is stunning.  Artistic fusion of still and motion.

He’s Visual, You’re Visual, I’m Visual, We’re All Visual

Yesterday I was talking to a bride about her wedding. She and her fiance were looking at a lot of venues and some of them were so drastically different from one another. One thing she brought up was that a number of the venues didn’t have very many images to show different set-ups and color schemes, as well as a decor ideas.

As a professional, I can generally visualize design concepts in my head when I look at a room. But, I can imagine how challenging it would be for someone planning the wedding of their dreams for the first time. Aided with Style Boards that I sent her, she was able to get a much better sense of the venues and fell in love with two in particular.

I think International Market Square is a perfect example of a venue that is hard to visualize set-up for a wedding. Due to the extremely high ceilings and the different levels, putting it all together in your head may be challenging.

It is much easier to get a sense of a space with the Style Boards. This example of a ceremony and reception shot by Staja Studios really helps couples imagine the possibilities of the International Market Square (which happens to be one of the venues the couple is considering). At the same time, couples get a sense of a photographer’s work. Some venues are harder to shoot than others and you can definitely tell the experience and talent through the images.

Although we really love for you to take the time to experience the Style Stations for yourself (feedback is that it is a fun, efficient and extremely helfpul tool), you can always call or email us to ask us to send you Style Boards based on your search criteria.

Eclectic Style Done Well

Eclectic style can be challenging to translate into wedding decor. It’s easy for eclectic to turn into schizophrenic style pretty quickly. This wedding, beautifully photographed by Staja Studios, really shows the couple’s personality and style and does it in a way that melds natural, organic elements into the very sleek setting of the Walker Art Center.
