SPRING IS FOR LOVERS Meet The Wedding Pros:

This modern bridal shoot is inspired by the contemporary, art-filled ambiance that is abundant at Mainframe Studios and their event venue, The Big Room. As a planner and event stylist, Sarah Burt, of Burt Event Management Co. is always looking for a unique space that will help tell a couple's story, but doesn’t take away from the energy of the duo (or their budget). Mainframe Studios, is a PERFECT canvas to create your day. The venue space, dubbed The Big Room, is affordable and accommodates 30 to 300 guests. We enjoy so many things about the space — the big windows … the ceiling fixtures by Artist Molly Spain … the blonde barn wood tables and matching chairs … an outdoor area … the impeccable food and beverage options by The Tangerine Food Company … bistro lighting throughout … the list seems to go on and on and on. Sarah wanted to implement the latest trends in the industry including fitted, satin gowns alongside gowns with tulle skirts and puffy sleeves, colorful floral, and untraditional props. Plus, she had a vision to gather a group of women to showcase it all as a bridal lookbook. It transformed into an ode to the modern bride. A bride who isn't afraid to break the rules, to stray from neutrals, and to implement her uniqueness. Sarah's hope is that this styled shoot empowers brides to bring their own version of bold into their wedding day.
