I can't wait to show you what it's like to be a KS Bride or #KatieSchubertSenior !

I remember planning my own wedding day and LOVING it. Design has always been a bit of a passion of mine – I love pairing colors & textures and creating a look and “feel” that I love! So planning a wedding where I had the chance to create my perfect day was FUN!

I’ve always known my style falls on the light & airy side. I love neutrals, with tasteful pops of color to bring in contrast and visual interest. As a photographer, it sets my heart on fire to create my consistent style via photographs, whether it’s giving style suggestions for an engagement session, choosing romantic & simple locations so my subjects pop off the background, styling details and creating balance with color & textures, etc!

While I do think you kind of need to have an “eye” for that sort of thing, I also know that there are certain guidelines you can follow to achieve the type of light & airy feel on a wedding day that our work is known for and that we LOVE.

If you’re in the stages of choosing these types of details for your wedding day, these tips are going to be perfect for you!!

I hope you find this helpful!

Colors and trends that lend to the light & airy feel:

Romantic shades of blush & rose

Light, warm-toned beiges

Calm & coastal blue tones

Sophisticated neutrals like taupes, grays, and ivory

Wedding Trends we Love:

  • A mainly neutral color palette with tasteful pops of color
  • An overabundance of greenery & florals and oversized, fluffy bouquets
  • Bridesmaids dresses with different shades (within the same light & airy color family) & styles
  • An al fresco setting with plenty of natural light (think clear tents on a natural, greenery filled landscape!)

Hey! I'm Katie!

This is where I share not only my work and show off my sweet couples, but also (many) pieces of my life. I'm an open book when it comes to talking about things I love, current obsessions, my cute pup, and my amazing hubby, so I hope you love reading about it! Also, you'll find quite a few resources for planning the wedding you've always dreamed of, so grab yourself a latte and start exploring!

-cheers, Katie
