Pretty Pastels at Cornerstone Manor

Captured beautifully by Kourtney Fossaluzza, today's shoot comes to us straight from the beautiful state of Ohio. Shot at The Cornerstone Manor (one of the first Historical Mansions built in downtown Middletown, Ohio), this shoot has all the good stuff! You know, a beautiful couple, elegant flat lay styling, the cutest Goldendoodle, and stunning florals to boot.

As for the venue, the Italianate Victorian Mansion was built in 1861 and can host a variety of events, including intimate weddings. From the photographer, "With the 15 ft ceilings and original millwork, The Cornerstone Manor was the perfect place to host a styled shoot."

"The large tree in the backyard is where majority of the shoot took place. It did rain on us for a bit, but afterwards we had the most beautiful sunset. The Cornerstone Manor has some amazing indoor spaces to shoot for getting ready shots and we used those spaces as well."

"My vision for this shoot was to use a mix of pastels to make this shoot feel romantic and an intimate feeling. I wanted this shoot to be a mixed of classic, romance, & bohemian style. I incorporated the colors; peach, blush, dusty blue, and gold."

"With an amazing team of vendors, my vision came to life. The large tree in in the backyard of the venue is perfect to have a ceremony for your intimate wedding. It was also a perfect location to setup the tablescape and settee for portraits."

"The models for this shoot were Cassidy Zeiter and Adam Rivers. They're a real life couple and are absolutely adorable. Cassidy was perfect because she totally understands how a shoot goes because she's also a photographer. They went above and beyond for me at this shoot and I am forever grateful!"

"I've always loved when couple's include their pets into their wedding day and I wanted to make that be apart of the shoot. The venue's owner, Sue was kind enough to let me use her Goldendoodle, Tennessee for the shoot!"
