The flowers are stunning and the little detail of the ribbons was the perfect way to add a sweet finishing touch to the design. We’re so happy they chose a mix of bridesmaids dresses and they could not have been more complimentary. All of the shades of purple went together to nicely with the bouquets.Images Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comAll of the little detail elements that Kinzie & Scott added to their reception space really made it so personal. The stack of quilts they had readily available for guests in case it became chilly, the variety of centerpiece detail, & the sweet tribute to loved ones who have passed.Images Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comThe detail in Kinzie’s dress is so beautiful The lace, the beading, the delicate flow of the fabric. It was absolutely stunning!Images Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comImages Courtesy of Ivory Door Studio. http://www.ivorydoorstudio.comWe were outside taking some night portraits and suddenly inspiration hit all of us together. We immediately realized we wanted to create a portrait inspired by the American Gothic painting.

It is so fitting that these two have such energetic and fun friends, it fits their personalities perfectly. This is the first time we have ever seen an officiant get down on the dance floor like this & it was awesome!
