Bremer Jewelry

Styled Summer Session with model Morgan Dunn and Justine Ulrich by Meredith Washburn

Awhile back I teamed up with Floral Designs Ltd. (Morton), Bremer Jewelry (Peoria), and Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique (Peoria) to make some images with Morgan Dunn and Justine Ulrich.

 

Floral Designs Ltd. is based in Morton, IL and loves to customize each wedding specifically to each bride. They work diligently to keep up with the latest trends in the wedding industry. From my own personal experience of working with Cheri and Kim, I know that they pour so much time and talent into their pieces, which are all unique and stunning. I've photographed a number of weddings with Floral Designs Ltd. and I am always overly impressed by the bouquets as they always flow seamlessly with the style of the wedding. Currently, Floral Designs Ltd. is loving the trend of the dark sangria color contrasted with the softer tones and the dramatic draping and cascading bouquets <--- can I second that?! I also love the draping and cascading bouquets....they are some of my very favorite to photograph <3!!!! I am always way excited when I show up to photograph and there are these amazing cascading bouquets done by Floral Designs Ltd.. Flowers can add such beauty and elegance to a wedding. Bouquets, floral arrangements, hair pieces, flower crowns, etc. always seem to enhance the mood and romance in photographs, as well as add beautiful pops of colors <3. If you haven't checked out their showroom in Morton, you definitely should! Their shop also has beautiful wedding rentals as well as pretty home decor. You may also see one of these beautiful models' photo hanging on the wall (how cool!?!).

Bremer Jewerly Peoria is seriously the coolest! If you haven't stopped in their store to take a gander at all their pretty sparkling jewels, you probably should. They have the friendliest and most helpful staff who are willing to answer all of your questions about diamonds and jewels. You'll notice in the images below some gorgeous arm bangles (which are SO affordable, ladies -- seriously every girl needs these!!!) as well as some beautiful earrings, and an engagement ring any girl would gush over.

Adam + Summer // wedding by meredith

Over the past year, I have been lucky enough to photograph some important moments in the life of Adam and Summer. Awhile back, I photographed Summer with her sweet dog who had been diagnosed with cancer and hadn't much time left to live. Most of you probably remember seeing Adam and Summer's surprise proposal at Ewing Manor in Bloomington, Illinois which was featured in Country Living MagazineThe KnotHow He Asked, and Love Came Down.People everywhere seemed to think their engagement was pretty great :)! Read about it at one of the links above ^!

A few weeks ago I had the honor of being a part of their wedding day. From start to finish, the day was flawless. So much thought and time were put into decisions on scheduling, time for photography/videography, hair, makeup, gown, details, flowers, location, first look, venues, reception, food, music, special dances, etc. Summer is also a talented photographer, and she definitely did a wonderful job making her own perfect, unique, and flawless wedding. Adam and Summer were seriously the perfect bride and groom. They even took time out of their reception to experiment with some silhouette photographs. I seriously could not have asked for a more perfect day -- they rocked my socks off. Below are a few words from Summer about their day together as husband and wife:

"Adam and I truly couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. We had been told time and time again to make sure that you stop at least once on the wedding day and just take everything in--even if only for 10 seconds. We both knew that we wanted to enjoy every bit of our day and not look back wondering where the day went and thinking it was a blur. As we talked the day after the wedding and throughout our honeymoon we kept saying, "We don't feel like we missed out on anything." We took multiple times throughout the day to remind ourselves, this is it. This is OUR wedding day. And we promised that whatever happened we would take it in and roll with it. We enjoyed every stage of getting ready, getting dressed, our first look and pictures, all the way through the ceremony and every event throughout our reception. We both look back on our wedding day and just smile. Everything was flawless, and we couldn't have done it without so many incredible people willing to work hard to make our dreams come true. So thank you to everyone who attended, filmed, photographed, setup, tore down... we can never thank you enough."
