As an October bride, I have to say that fall weddings are my absolute favorite. So when I asked Ali Marshall from Violet Hill Events to style our inspiration shoot at 231 North Event Center , it was music to my ears when she said she wanted to do a fall theme. She wanted to take all the wonderful things about autumn and channel them with the design of the shoot, which I think she did beautifully! She brought in an old desk, vintage books, warm tones and yummy pies to bring the fall vibe full circle. Ali is a girl with a vision, a beautiful vision, so if you need some wedding ideas and inspiration, she is your girl!
But of course pulling off something like this is impossible without a group of great vendors. 231 North Event Center was the perfect setting. The venue is located just 20 minutes outside of Spokane and offers brides breathtaking scenery and a great space to create the wedding of their dreams. We asked the wonderful Ryan Lindberg Photography to do the photos, Erica from Erica’s Expressions to design the flowers, the hair was done by Hair by Rachael and the gorgeous make-up was done by Artistic Expressions. The dress was from Coeur d’ Alene’s Storybook Bridal, White Box Pies provided the pies for our dessert table and Roost allowed us to borrow the great vintage furniture. Last, but definitely not least, Travis Knight was kind enough to come along and create a great behind the scenes video about the shoot (below).
And a special thanks to our model Grace Nichols who graciously agreed to pretend to be a bride all day!
