Modern Ohio Wedding at Strongwater

Your wedding venue hugely influences the theme of your big day. For fun couple Jenn and Adam, a modern setting dressed in simple and minimal natural details perfectly expressed their edgy style. Strongwater in Columbus, Ohio, with eroded brick walls and metal ceilings, stood as the gathering place for the couple to say “I do.” The bridesmaids wore structured dresses in shades of gray and metallic silver to further emphasize the alternative style. We love how the bride added a soft touch to her fashion by including a ivory and green floral headpiece. Adam Lowe Photography captured unbelievably cute moments of the couple enjoying their special day!
The Couple:
Jenn and Adam
The Wedding:
Strongwater, Columbus, Ohio
The Inspiration:
When planning the wedding we wanted it to be casual, unique, and have plenty of dancing. We both share similar taste in style, but Adam is in a creative field so he had a stronger opinion. We like modern, industrial, rustic, and eclectic with touches of elegance. Strongwater provided most of that, we just needed to add elegant touches. The layout was perfect for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. 
As far as attire goes, the goal here was to put ourselves in something that we would feel comfortable in and compliment our everyday style – casual with some personality. Jenn wanted to dress down a fancy wedding dress. She chose an Allure lace gown, gold spiked bracelets, and topped it off with a flower crown – it was a perfect balance of relaxed but “look, she’s getting married” vibe that fit her perfectly. Jenn just wanted her bridesmaids to look like themselves, so they chose their dresses and accessories. Their dresses were shades of gray with varying fabrics for a cohesive yet unique feel.Adam wore a navy linen well-tailored suit with brown wingtips complemented by a light grey pocket square and a floral Liberty of London pattern bow-tie for a little personality. The groomsmen wore the opposite scheme, with grey suits, a navy bow-tie and matching floral pocket square.

The Moments:
The whole day was our favorite moment. Having everyone together in one room is easily the coolest feeling ever. If we had to pick moments these would be our top 3: 
1. We wanted our dog involved in the wedding but knew he might steal the show, so we decided to have someone let him loose after the kiss so we could exit as a family. Being the casual couple we are, we did just that. We were curious to see his reaction when he walked out into a crowd of 200 people and if he could find us. He did a good job and it was super entertaining.
2. The wedding ceremony was better than I would’ve ever imagined. Standing in front of a crowd is a scary thought. Standing in front of a crowd watching your every move is terrifying. You plan everything for the reception, the tables, the flowers, the music, but at the ceremony, you don’t know what your officiant is actually going to say. Not loving anything emotional we asked to keep everything light. What he produced was an amazing mix of funny, serious and candid that I wanted to stand up there and listen to him forever. 
3. The dance floor. Between the traditional dances, our first dance and our friends – it got wild. This was certainly due to the Conspiracy Band bringing down the house.
The Couple Recommends:
We loved every single person we worked with! Each and every one of them went above and beyond what we had expected and made the entire wedding planning process a breeze! We never felt stressed or worried about anything since we had a rockstar group helping us out. We HIGHLY recommend each and every one of these super talented people!

Colorful English Wedding at the East Quay

On the longest day of the year and in an authentic lobster shack in Southeast England called East Quay, Carly and Alex tied the knot. A Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired a colorful and whimsical celebration complete with hanging ribbons, twinkle lights, and a boldly beautiful floral design by A Vintage WeddingBabb Photo captured every inch of the vibrant day, from the pink and orange reception décor to the candy-colored sunset.
The Couple:
Carly and Alex
The Wedding:
East Quay, Kent, England

The Inspiration: We had a few guiding principles for our wedding – we wanted something near our home, by the sea, as its a special place to us and a place that we enjoy sharing with all of our friends and family. And, we wanted something memorable and different, relaxed, but also that culminated in a giant party!
From this we ended up with a wedding at a genuine Lobster Shack places situated right on the beach on our home town of Whitstable, bang in the middle of the summer, over the weekend of the longest day.

Our outfits really reflected our whimsical seaside vibe – special, but not too stuffy! My Ian Stewart Midsummer Night’s Dream dress was aptly named and worked so well – it was both comfortable and striking, and as you got closer you could see more and more details with subtle sequins and hand embroidered dragonflies. I loved it. This was complimented with a BHLDN headpiece and a beautiful cascading bouquet.

We just adore the BOOM marquee, which so perfectly describes the burst of color and excitement on Carly and Alex’s wedding day!

We packed the venue with informal coral and orange flowers and heaps of greenery, succulents and shells, plus subtle seaside touches to create a real Midsummer’s Night Dream meets seaside celebration feel.

I think our photos speak for themselves. Laura Babb is incredibly talented and produced real pieces of work that won’t date and that you are happy to display on your walls as art for years to come. She was not at all intrusive throughout the wedding process and full of tips and advance before, during and after the day.
