Planning a wedding during the Covid-19 pandemic brought a lot of hesitation. Taking the conservative route felt like the right thing to do. For some aspects, this WAS the right thing to do, considering many of the unknowns. But not all features needed to be this way.

In a world of being cautious, I mixed it up with a bit of boldness. Adding color was the very thing needed. Take, for instance, this styled shoot. Minimalistic, modern, and radiant. Colors that pop give energy to your day. (And we all needed a little kick after 2020!)

David Bowie and the interior design details of The Tinsmith venue lead to the inspiration. As one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century said himself with the lyrics of Modern Love: It’s not really work / It’s just the power to charm
