Minimalist Glamour with Molly Donovan

In an industry full of creatives with such awesome perspectives and interesting design styles, The Venue on Washington is always eager to get to work with a planner and designer who showcases our modern industrial space in a way that is outside of the box and unexpected. It was truly a gift to be able to meet Molly, the owner of Details by Molly Donovan. Her style is exactly what we envisioned in our venue and as soon as we met with her, we knew we had to work with her. She brought in an incredible team of vendors including two different photographers with very different shooting styles which both came out AMAZING. We wanted to showcase a brighter style and a moodier style so having Copper Tree Photography and Gebriel and Ryne was the perfect fit as they completely master their genres of photography.

Dessert First AZ created the most unique cake for this shoot which was so perfect with the industrial metal details throughout the venue. This barn door is one of our favorite backdrops for detail shots so we are loving how Sybil with Copper Tree Photography set this cake up to shoot. The sugar work is amazing and most importantly, Veronica’s desserts are so delicious!

And if we can take a moment to just truly soak in the creations that Form Floral created. We have worked with Malori, owner of Form Floral at another photo shoot and we immediately fell in love with her! Her work is so special and so creative. Baby’s Breath is something we wouldn’t have thought to utilize in such a way but now we are OBSESSED. This will forever be one of our favorite floral designs and we are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with a truly rad individual.

Neue Bride provided the most gorgeous dress for our model Jess to wear which was simply breathtaking. There is something about dainty and delicate pieces in the industrial venue that provides the most beautiful contrast and has created some of our favorite content. Neue Bride is located in Arizona and the owner Sydney is amazing! Their dresses are so unique and we have loved everything that Sydney has let us dress our models in. Meghan Trammell did hair and makeup which complimented the whole shoot perfectly. Meghan was so great to work with and made our models so at ease and laid back which made the whole day that much more fun! We wish we could play dress up in dresses like this all day but for now we will just continue to reflect on how perfect this bride was.

We also have a huge garage style door at the venue and we always thought about having really cool vendors with food trucks or photo buses to actually pull inside and for this shoot Molly brought in The Event Co to supply the rentals AND The Airstream Photobooth. It was such a cool touch inside the venue and has sparked some really cool ideas from clients. Along with the Airstream, The Event Co brought in some amazing rentals that we were literally drooling over. Ghost chairs will forever be a favorite and they completely fit the minimalist vibe of the shoot. Molly went with a white farm table for her design as well as some simple yet elegant linens from La Tavola and table settings from Material Girl Weddings.

Another vendor we were so excited to have was Kenzie Hart of Hart Films. Her videos are seriously works of art and her photography is just as beautiful. Her images have easily become some of our favorites and the video she created from this shoot was so amazing. Not only is her work some of the best, but she is such a blast to be around which in our opinion is just as important. We have been so Lucky to work with Kenzie on more than one occasion and we can’t wait to work with her again.
