Watters “Serephim” Collection – “The ‘Seraphim’ collection by Watters, the company’s premier brand, takes flight with hand-selected laces, luxe organza, flowing chiffon and dramatic tulle. “Seraphim” reflects celestial and angelic beauty with echoing motifs throughout the designs and details on each gown in the collection. Opulent beading, metallic embroidery, hidden details and embellishments evoke the heavenly inspiration to create a collection that is both luxurious and contemporary.”

Wtoo by Watters “Siren Song” Collection – “Wtoo by Watters’ newest collection, ‘Siren Song,’ is inspired by the mystery of the sea and musings over Hans Christian Andersen’s classic, ‘The Little Mermaid.’ Characterized by form-fitting silhouettes, flowing fabrics, beading, skin-baring elements and embroidery, this collection captures the depths, details and beautiful complexities that live both above and beneath the surface of the sea.”

Forgoing a traditional wedding isn’t for everyone, but it was the perfect decision for bride Madelyn and her newly pronounced husband Renner, as evidenced by the pure joy captured by Peyton Rainey Photography at their beautifully modern elopement! Having known early on that they would keep their nuptials between just the two of them, carefully crafted details like the overgrown bouquet from Juniper Designs added an extra dose of elegance and was a favorite element in particular of the couple. With the 21c Museum Hotel as their ceremony venue, the uniquely designed space gave the couple abundant backdrop options for photo opportunities. The industrial look of the space gave their photos an fresh yet elegant feel, using elements such as a wall of tiled glass windows, worn red brick and even a gritty water tower to add dimension to their shoot. We especially love the photos featuring colorful smoke bombs to add a romantic layer of dreamy haze to the images. Each picture certainly depicts their fairytale love story! Enjoy!
