CityScape Engagement Sessions

Photos by: Oh Deer Photography

I am a country girl at heart, but there is something about the architectural marvels in a city that always drawls me in! This picture, with the Chicago skyline in the background and Lake Michigan sparkling during “golden hour” definitely pulls at the heartstrings. Amal & Daniel are continuing the urban theme at The Conrad Indianapolis, located downtown, for their wedding ceremony and reception in the hotel’s grand ballroom. Taking place in March of 2021, they will have a beautiful ceremony with tall elevated arrangements featuring white spring flowers at the altar and entrances. These will carry over to the guest tables for a dramatic and luxurious decor item to go with the same aesthetic brought by the Vienna Ballroom. Accents in gold and greenery, showcasing the modern white design. I cannot wait to bring you more photos from this much-awaited day!

When using the city as your engagement session destination, you can find ways to bring symmetry into the photo easily! Cities are usually laid out in a grid pattern and therefore bring that element into a lot of park and architecture design as well. Look how the lines of the stairs create depth, and the row of trees on each side give them a frame to stand in between. These things are what make you look at the picture and love it for the personality it brings.

Chelsie and Ben also took their photos in Chicago and they show us another side of city photography. Choosing to use Millenium Park and the conservatory for their background created a scenic set of pictures that remained modern. Their wedding is going to be bountiful in greenery and these pictures captured that as well.

For Chelsie, I am designing in their venue Bash, located in Carmel, Indiana, a lush tablescape of greenery garlands with roses and tall elevated stands with greenery canopies overhead. Her Vintage blush color scheme will go perfectly with the white and black theme at Bash. A bouquet filled with specialty roses is just one reason you don’t want to miss their wedding story when it is published on Satin & Stems’ Wedding Blog!
