Singing Our Praises

Cincinnati Wedding has had the pleasure of collaborating with Yellow Canary on numerous editorial photo shoots. From bouquets and boutonnieres, to headpieces and flower walls, Kristen Sekowski's artistry continues to amaze and inspire us. Recently we had the pleasure of visiting Yellow Canary's lovely new location in Oakley to chat with Kristen about her process and ongoing success.

Aim High, Spend Low

Remember this stunning arrow necklace from the Secret Garden feature in the fall issue? Get the look for way less with Anthropologie's adorable Straight Shot Necklace. For only $38, we suggest you take aim.

Eye Candy

Blink Makeup Studio, located in the Northside Airpot mall, is like a pop-up pastry shop for cosmetics.

You Stay Classy

For a touch of classic sophistication in your newlywed nest, Gattle's in Montgomery is a good option to register. Gattle's, open since 1919, specializes in luxury linens and home accents. From embroidered handkerchiefs to monogrammed european linens, Gattle's products err on the side of elegance. You must go darling. You simply just must. 


We're having a macaron moment here at CW. Call them what you will— a classic dessert or a trendy treat, the French pastries are still all over the wedding market. Need a fix? Check out this adorable macaron wrapping paper at Poeme. It's just one of many in their spring stock of adorable patterned papers.

Camargo Trading Company

Be classy and spoil your bridesmaids with a bag full of goodies from the lovely Camargo Trading Company. This Madeira boutique is the perfect place to find beautiful, everyday luxuries for the ladies standing by you at the altar…and at the bachelorette party, and the engagement party, and the showers, and the vendor visits, and the shopping excursions… They deserve it!

All Eyes On Us

A huge trend in bridal fashion is personalization—really putting your own style into your look. And there's no better way to add your own flair, than with a statement accessory. Here's a round-up of some fabulous statement pieces from recent Cincinnati Wedding fashion shoots.

An American in Paris

My sourcing trip to Debra Moreland's Paris headquarters was an explosion of sparkly awesomeness. Moreland, one of our favorite local designers, has a strong national following. Debra and her team were busy prepping for a visit from Anthropologie's BHLDN buyers, so the showroom was filled with floor-to-ceiling bling. Swoon. Keep a look out for a series of stunning Paris hair accessories in our upcoming spring issue.

Golden Girl

Remember this bow cuff from the "Party Time" feature in our Winter issue? We've spotted another adorable bow bracelet locally at Nest in Hyde Park. It's structured and sparkly and priced at only $78. Quick—run!

Amanda’s Hyde Park Bridal

Alright ladies—there's a new kid on a new block. This fall, the east side of town welcomed Amanda's Hyde Park Bridal in, you guessed it, Hyde Park. This adorable new boutique offers an exclusive selection of gorgeous, on-trend bridal gowns and accessories. We recently visited the shop to get a taste of what's in-store for our local brides.
