Classic with a modern touch will always and forever be Heirloom’s style. Sharing an editorial feature from Bridal Musings where we mixed spring colors, with a gorgeous pearl cape by Alyssa Kristin. Company 251 outside of Chicago in suburban Aurora served as the perfect Neo-Traditional slate for a morning tea and wedding day featuring artisanal paper goods from Emily Rose Ink. All beautifully captured by Roots of Life Photography.
From Bridal Musings: “There’s a delicate balance between modern and traditional. Too much of one and your design instantly feels stark and cold or stuffy and outdated. After waking into the modern meets classic beauty of the newly opened space at Company 251, the inspiration flowed and traditional elements with an updated aesthetic fell into place.”

Line drawn botanicals from Emily Rose Ink have an old-world flair with a totally modern edge. And speaking of edges, I love how the line drawn details wrap around the edges of the envelopes.
A soft spring palette is the right pastel touch paired with sleek bridal fashion and the venues clean aesthetic. Tulips, roses, and ranunculus carry the soft colors, while plumosa fern add a wispy elegance.
Descontrcuted bouquet elements have become my new favorite detail shot. I’m excited to capture more this wedding season of our upcoming bouquets.
A guest book from Velvet Raptor is an instant family heirloom.
Afternoon tea is one of my favorite traditions, and I love the idea of incorporating it into your wedding morning. Kith and Kin takes all the work of it out by providing lux tea setups right in your getting-ready suite!
Tara from Roots of Life is a fellow tea lover, and when were were discussing wedding take aways we would love to receive, we both agreed that tea to brew post-wedding morning would be high on our list. This is Lavender Earl Grey from Adagio Tea.
This pearl cape! All the heart eyes! For someone who doesn’t feel like a veil is their vibe, but still wants a dramatic element to their look. Alyssa Kristin hand stitched these pearls individually.
