An Elite Event {Toledo Event Photography}

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Elite Events designed the Toledo Library's 175th anniversary party! It was about the most spectacular event I've ever been too. I don't even know what to say, so I'll let the photos speak for themselves!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Yes, the red carpet was rolled out for all the guests!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Elite Events Grand Opening! {Toledo Event Photographer}

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

It's big news in the wedding/event industry. Elite Events has a STOREFRONT! Elite Events does wedding and event design, coordination and planning as well as florals, custom stationary and rentals like chairs and linens and many other details you might need. They are just a one stop for all things wedding and party! The inside looks INCREDIBLE. I was blown away. They had a couple of mock-up areas to showcase a couple of designs for weddings and parties. Not only that they sell all sorts of delicious details and gifts. I was giddy..

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

You can find the new studio at 1113 Adams St in Toledo. If you are planning your wedding or party be sure to stop by, it's cozy and you'll feel WAY less stressed about the planning of your event after you leave.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They had a tent set up outside in the back of their store with these lovely tables, a bar and music by Decorative Sound and a s'mores bar! Yum!! Plus Eye Candy Photobooth. Even with all that I still think Bella was running the show πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Signature EE drink and their sweet little water bottles. Kati gave the goblets as a gift to Nikki. Perfect.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Little boxes for your treats. Ok, so I don't know why I would need a bird's nest but I really want it! So cute. I'm sure it will go home with a lucky bride!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Ok have you ever seen an ombre cake? Aaaaand I told you the chairs were comfy!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They have signs all over that you can purchase and here was one of my favorite invites. I believe I read on Nikki's blog that the more interesting your invite is the higher percentage of invited guests arrive. She always has the BEST invites. This one is clearly nautical themed and I go NUTS for stripey straws.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The thing I love about EE is how they incorporate textures, pattern, and color into everything they do. A photographer's dream.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Ok so Sparkly, textured napkin, textured table cloth…and a menu. LOVE.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

One of the mock-up centerpieces they have. I was nearly drooling.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Big colored clothes pins…again I don't know what I would do with these (perhaps Bean needs these for his bday party next year) but I LOVE them. I'm guessing another lucky bride will snag these as well.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The s'mores bar. I did have a treat while I was hanging out πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

AHHHHHH. I want to drink EVERY drink with one of these. Just makes life happier I think. A little color and pattern does the soul good.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

ok…I am sure EVERYONE is drooling now right? Custom cutlery in the coolest stand ever.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Sweet little Bella. I think one day she might be a big part of EE. She is already a natural.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

This was the best part to me. The cutting of the ribbon. I got a little teary. I thought of all their hard work, and how Bella and Magnolia are right there with Nikki and Kati and what a legacy of hard work they are leaving them. Teaching their girls they really can do anything they want.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Such a big moment.

Nikki and Kati, you girls are rocking it. Keep going and inspiring your clients! If anyone is interested in learning more about the EE girls and their work visit their website. It's incredible and I promise you'll want to meet them and pick their brains!

Aubrie’s First Birthday Party {Toledo Event Photographer}

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Aubrie is the tiniest little one year old I've ever met! She is as  sweet as pie and her momma, Laurie, did a GREAT job on her party! Laurie works for Elite Events, so naturally the party was covered in details. 

toledo baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

We started off with a mini session of the sweet birthday girl in her birthday outfit! 

toledo baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

She had just woken up from her nap, and even so was just a happy dancing girl!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The theme was Winter Onederland. Everything was silver and pink; it was precious. I think the marshmallows were my favorite detail. I've never seen pink marshmallows and the silver sprinkles were perfect.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The adorable sign!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Laurie told me a lot of the snacks were done by Sugar Shack. I think they did a great job. Even the cake looks like it's wearing a tutu. Aaaaand I'm jealous of the letters….I want some!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

LOVE everything about this sweets table!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Yeh, incredible.

Here's the other portion where food and drinks were held! Strawberries were my second favorite detail!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Even the bottle caps had snowflakes on them πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Anyone who knows me knows just how much I LOVE stripey straws!!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Take home bags πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

She had white trees everywhere with snowflakes and tutus hanging off them πŸ™‚ I also LOVED the napkins for the forks tied right to them πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Laurie MADE this entire tutu wall as the backdrop to the sweet table….incredible touch.

Laurie…I think Nikki made the right choice hiring you as her intern. You did a wonderful job on your little girl's party. BTW your little girl is so sweet! I was pretty taken with Aubrie and her sweet little dance moves and her duckling hair! Can't wait to show you the rest (although I posted a TON here already!)

My Baby Sister’s Shower {Toledo Event Photography}

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Yes, my baby sister found her man. You can see more about those two love bunnies here. I actually put on the shower (with TONS of help!) Normally my big sister handles the parties but she went and had my adorable nephew so she's been a bit busy πŸ™‚ I picked the theme, date, made and sent invitations and decorated (with tons of help from my Momma!) and my big sister made all the yummo food. Oh and Tabitha brought the sangria….apparently you're supposed to have grown up drinks at a night time bridal shower ;).

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The table setting station. There was some formal seating in the tent (actual tables with settings) but there were also couches and hay bales rocking chairs and wicker chairs. These seats obviously didn't have a place setting so they would come get their plates, napkins, glasses and flatware here.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

So I can't lie….I read the Elite Events blog….if you are planning a party you really need to read it…religiously.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Bean helped me pull these off the next day…he really loves to help πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Hubs made the signs AND put them in the ground. I know how men are about their yards and I was so thankful that he did it with a happy heart. Not all men are happy or even willing to put a hole in their yards πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The tables were just wrapped in craft paper and then I had mason jars and just put cupcake liners on top to keep the straws in place.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Fancy brownies πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Since it was an evening/night time shower we had a dessert bar. Oreo bites, cheescake stuffed strawberries, a sugar cookie bar (many toppings!), cake pops, chocolate covered pretzels, brownies, mini pumpkin pies, a truffle, a couple of fancy cakes and etc etc. I can't remember it all at this point!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I kind of went nuts when I realized how many people would be at my house so I did this to the front trees and added a burlap ribbon. I also ripped up the entire front garden and back garden and reconfigured the entire thing. I just wanted everything to be perfect for her and for her to know she is special and important! (I definitely learned this from my momma….she always put great efforts into making sure our parties were perfect and that we knew how important we are.)

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

This is another tree out front. Just adding to the detail and to make sure the guests knew they were in the right place.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Upon their arrival we had a kind of 'getaway' entrance. They can't throw confetti at the hall and Rachel saw these photos and loved them and I thought it was my opportunity to give her those photos.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Plus it was a really fun way to kick off the shower.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Too fun!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

There's that fancy cake! I challenged my big sister to make that cake and she did a beautiful job! I absolutely love it!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

We had them do a practice cake cutting….maybe they will be pros on their actual wedding day πŸ™‚

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

It was such a fun evening! BTW if ya'll need a photobooth let me know. That was incredibly fun. I kinda wished it lasted longer than three hours….I was having too much fun and I coulda kept going! I'll have another post with more of the intricate details and the where and how to do them!

Eli Turns One~Part Two {Fremont Event Photographer}

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

So I really wanted to post some details from Eli's party. Echo made it golf themed and EVERYTHING fit into the theme. It was ridiculously cute. I also learned a few things about golf!

fremont event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Elijah's treat table!! The cake pops were textured like golf balls, and she had frosting somehow look like grass and for all the sand? That was brown sugar. Yeh…it was incredible!

fremont event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Eli had his own giant cupcake for his own personal cake. What a great idea. That way baby doesn't drool and smoosh the entire cake so the rest of the guests can enjoy it!

fremont event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The Ringling Brothers! {Toledo Event Photography}

Friday, August 26th, 2011

This little cutie-pie turned one year old and had this adorable vintage circus party! I LOVE a good DIY party. She even had a top hat (after all she is the ringleader!) She is just one tiny peanut and was just too cute in all the circus hub bub!

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They used crepe paper to create a big top effect!

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They had old Barnum and Bailey posted printed and then hung peanut wreaths for an added detail πŸ™‚

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They had buckets filled with peanuts….

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

…and others filled with nutter butters.

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Dessert plates:)

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They had these cute bowls and matching trays for all the guests to put their yummy circus style food in! (Yes there were chili dogs and nacho chips with that delicious cheese sauce!)

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

LOVE the vintage popcorn bags! Yum!

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

It was time for her first taste of birthday cake….she demolished that thing!

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Happy First Birthday sweet Peanut! You are so loved, so happy that I get to know you!

If you'd like photos of your event be sure to contact me ASAP….I don't have many session slots or event slots left for this fall!

His First Party {Toledo Event Photography}

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Well, it's true…my Bean is 6 months old (well he will be this week!) I feel like it was just yesterday that he was born. (Still can't thank Tabitha enough for those photos). Somehow it's true, he is getting to be a big boy now. He has been rolling over for awhile now and he can sit up and he inch worm crawls….he can get out of his bumbo (yes I know I have a houdini on my hands). In my family we celebrate anything and everything and that includes 6 month birthdays! I decided to go with an all American pastime as the theme..baseball!! It feels summery and hopefully one day he plays (yes it's my favorite sport!) He also had his very first food yesterday,he had avocado! He did pretty great with the spoon and he cried between bites because I wasn't feeding him fast enough! There's tons of photos (of course) so here we go!
 

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

This was Jack's mood board…I had this ready to go when I was getting details together for his party. It's a trick I learned from Nikki at Elite Events, she makes one for every client. Granted she is a professional at this and hers look way more awesome..but it definitely helped give me direction!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

This was the first thing the guests saw, the invitation! I made 3D invites that looked like cracker jack boxes but the inside was all the party info!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Some of these ideas you might recognize from a party thrown by Elite Events…yes I tried to steal those ideas! Those girls do a great job and I cataloged ideas!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I got mason jars here. Added some grass for a centerpiece…can't bring in the whole ball field so I brought in a piece of the ball field!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I got this bucket from here. She makes decorated ones but I knew a plain one would be perfect to keep the coca cola cold!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I used these as favor bags! I got them here. She has some really cool stuff too!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

These are actually cupcake toppers but I figured they'd look just as cute in the cookies! I got them here. You gotta check out her stuff, she does all kinds of great birthday details! You could get your whole party from her practically!

toledo event baby photography birthday photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby photography birthday photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

So the left photo was to let everyone know they can sign his baseball (that was his 'guestbook'…I learned normal guestbooks are out and you have to do something creative! …again from Nikki!) I got the tin from here. I used it to keep potato chips in! We kept the food simple, hot dogs, chips, lemonade and coca cola. It felt like ball park food!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I got these as favors for everyone (adults included) and so everyone got a prize! I did get one for me too, figured I could use a party favor! My prize inside was a little puzzle piece! So cute!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Each kid also got a baseball for a favor!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I got the coca cola caps from here. Thought it added a cool element. I also added the actual photo of him so you all know I didn't actually put a blue photo in a frame on display!

toledo baby event birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The banner I made, couldn't find one I liked!

toledo baby event birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo baby event birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo baby event birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I don't own six of the same chairs so we went ahead and mix matched chairs! Everyone had a different chair, gave it kind of an eclectic look!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Here are some of his cute guests!!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I like how half of Bean's guests are missing teeth and growing new ones!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Of course Aunt Tabitha came πŸ™‚ She did all the action shots of his first feeding below!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

πŸ™‚

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

haha, feels like a coca cola ad!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Bean was wearing a cracker jack shirt to match his party theme! His shirt was made by Big Daddy graphics! I'm going to do his six month photos in it so you can get a really good view of it. They did a fantastic job!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Then it was time for his first ever bite of food, avocado! He just loved it!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

He had quite the audience!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I was feeling joy watching him eat and love it so much! He just makes my heart melt and keeps my face so smiley!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

He seriously would not let go of that spoon!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

yup, all gone! Might be time to begin baby sign language!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Playing with his new toys!

toledo event baby birthday photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Sweet angel boy, you have made these last 6 month of our lives the best ones yet! I am so glad you are mine and I am loving watching you grow and learn! We love you so much!!

Surprise Party Album {Toledo Event Photography}

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Thought I'd share a couple page spreads from Michele's Surprise party! Again, gotta showcase those girls from Elite Events….album wouldn't look this awesome if it wasn't for them! I love when clients purchase albums. That means I get to look at the photos again!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

She was totally surprised!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Surprise! {Toledo Event Photography}

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I was so excited when Nikki from Elite Events called and asked if I was available to photograph a surprise birthday party! Seriously, how fun. Not to mention I LOVE the work Elite Events does and everyone should hire them for weddings, birthdays, etc. So I got a little bit of back story. This hubby, Alan, wanted to through a huge surprise party for his wife, Michele's, birthday. He booked the Pinnacle a while back and then got in contact with Nikki. Nikki owns Elite Events and she had her girl Kati there who does the logistics. Basically makes and runs the time line. Alan not only threw this huge bash together but as his gift to his wife he commissioned a painting for her! I think he just might have won hubby of the year! BTW the premise for getting her to the Pinnacle was that they were attending a benefit for the kidney foundation (which was totally believable since he is a doctor!) there were signs out front and in the lobby there were pamphlets and sign in sheet (all fake of course). She had no idea until she walked in the doors of the ballroom! Anyway, here are my favorites (there are so many because Elite Events did such an amazing job…photographer's dream *sigh*):

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

This is the guest's first inkling of something going on. That's right, it's the invitation with a cutout shush on the front! Can you guess the party colors? πŸ˜‰

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The invites were 3D. The shush is on the front and then they unfold to see all the info inside!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Her name looks so pretty in that font. BTW Nikki does all the designing herself. Yeh, she's that good.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

An overall look at the hall

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

LOVE these lanterns. They added such a cool element to the dance floor. Nikki even jazzed up the ceiling! OH and p.s. check out that lighting! Perfect dramatic lighting.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The colors were tied in everywhere, it was awesome. I mentioned to Nikki that I liked the colored water in the vases and she stated that it was to bring color all the way down. She doesn't even allow plain water for her clients. Every detail is there.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The BEAUTIFUL cake! The cake was done by Jane's Cakes. Kati added the flowers and I think she did an excellent job! Of course sticking to their idea board!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Even the bows on the lanterns matched.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They event rented this display for the alcohol and different glasses for each drink!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

The gorgeous flowers were done by Sharon Johnson. You can contact Elite Events and they can give you her info.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

It was finally time for the birthday girl to arrive! She arrived right on time as Kati had planned and was totally shocked…don't ya think?

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

He made a very touching speech about his wife:)

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

He thanked her parents for bringing her into this world and then sharing her with him πŸ™‚ Yeh…tears.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Then at the end of his speech he revealed her gift! The painting was done by Quest For Fire Studios in Toledo.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Then the lights went down and the party was off!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I hope she made a good wish!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Her cake had sparklers on top for extra flare!

Another one of my favorite features. Elite Events created a wish tree. Waaay better than a guest book! Not only do you get messages from your guests to keep but they are displayed and add such a pretty 3D element to your event!

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Happy Birthday Michele! I hope you had a wonderful night and I wish you and Alan the best! I was so excited and honored to be a part of this fabulous night!

Alysa Skates {Toledo Event Photography}

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Hey all, remember this girl? Yeh, I hardly recognized her either! She has grown a TON since I have seen her! I was so excited when Melissa called to see if I was available to document Alysa's skating recital. (I have no idea if that is what it's called but let's just go with it). I was so impressed with Alysa (and the other skaters of course!) She did those twirly things and jumps and even ice skated backwards! I think many people are aware of how clumsy I am so needless to say just me trying to ice skate forwards is a big deal and here is Alysa just blowing me away! Not only was it fun to watch all the talent on the ice it was fun to photograph this too. I always like documentary style photography…being the observer from the outside. I kind of felt a bit like a reporter! Anyway, here are my favorite shots….it was 50's themed. I really think I would've been great at growing up in the fifties. Just love the clothes πŸ™‚

toledo event child photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Lacing up and getting ready to go! I hadn't been to the Bowling Green ice arena in some time and it brought back some great childhood memories.

toledo event photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I also love the lines Alysa creates with her arms. She is such a pretty ice skater to watch!

All the girls watching the grown ups skating around.

The star of the show!

Melissa, I really adore your family and I'm so glad I keep meeting more of them! I'm excited to see how much all the cousins have grown at our session in July!

Just a note, my weekdays are beginning to book up as well now so if you would like photos this spring or early summer be sure to shoot me an email πŸ™‚
