Kaitlyn & Jason

About six months ago, I came up with the concept while having a drink at the School House in Arvada, Colorado — which actually used to be a school house in the 1800s! The bar/restaurant now uses the building’s history to continue the theme, with traditional school chairs, a bar filled with #2 pencils, and dozens of other unique school characteristics. I envisioned a totally unique styled wedding photoshoot that combined a few of my favorite things: school, old books, a vintage vibe, and an intimate wedding venue.

I collaborated with a dozen vendors and two great models (Kaitlyn and Jason, who are a real engaged couple!) to bring together a styled wedding for all the school and literary lovers out there, complete with books (brought from my own home library), vintage typewriters, DIY pencils I created using the models’ initials.

To top it off, our stationary designer created an invitation and menu suite that used our book/library theme: the menu looks like a bookmark, the RSVP is styled after a library book rental card, and the invitation itself is meant to look like the first chapter of a book. We also worked with the cake designer to come up with a style that integrated an antique text style on the cake itself while keeping with the gold and navy color scheme. And our table pieces are all mix-matched vintage cups and plates, on a table surrounded by vintage school chairs!
