“A Lifetime of Love” Wedding Inspiration from Susie Marie Photography
It can be all too easy to lose sight of it when you’re busy excitedly planning every little detail of your day to be perfect. But a wedding is so much more than a color scheme, gorgeous gowns, fancy footwear, and beautifully styled tablescapes; it is the beginning of a lifetime of love! This beautiful reminder of what a wedding is really all about comes from the lens of Susie Marie, a photographer and granddaughter who adored her grandparents and the love they shared. So with 2015 being the year in which they would have celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary, Susie set about creating something special in their memory…..
And this wedding inspiration shoot really is something special. Brimming with lush florals in the most delicate pastel palette and decadent details in gold, as well as a 1940s inspired bridal updo, it is wonderfully romantic. But more than that, it is a true celebration of Susie’s grandparents life and love – set in the grounds in which the lived, and featuring many a meaningful detail it is a fitting commemoration of a truly inspiring couple!
A few words from Susie Marie Photography….. “This stylized shoot was something I have been dreaming about for awhile. My grandparents 75th wedding anniversary would have been last month. To remember their love, I wanted to dedicate this shoot to them. I used my grandmother’s ring, my grandfather’s antique camera and their wedding photo as special props. We even used their gold ware for the table settings! It was such a special day. The venue for the shoot took place at my parent’s farm in New Albany, Ohio. The house my parent’s live in was once my grandparent’s, and what better location than the place where it all started?! The brick farmhouse was built in 1806 and has so many sweet and loving memories. After 75 years, we still remember their devoted marriage, their “lifetime of love”.”
Big hugs & kisses to Susie Marie for allowing me to share her beautiful shoot with you here. And thanks to the whole team involved for their part in bringing her vision to life.
