Simply Jia, LLC: Wedding Styling

By Janet Cass | Sponsored by Simply Jia, LLC

“I encourage people to consider styling for all aspects of the wedding,” so that the entire wedding journey, from engagement photo shoot to bachelor/bachelorette party to the marriage ceremony, whether intimate elopement or larger, and any other component such as clothing for family members and the wedding party, tells a visually cohesive story.

Decisions, decisions

So says Jia Zheng, of Simply Jia, LLC. She understands firsthand the myriad details and decisions people face when planning a wedding because she took the lead in planning her own, with support from a venue-mandated wedding coordinator. Her tactful guidance for people navigating their journey to the start of married life is a natural extension of her personal-style coaching service, Simply Jia, LLC. When clients of that service began asking Jia for advice about their upcoming weddings, she decided to help them by adding wedding styling to her offerings.

And, since giving back to the community is important to Jia, she also hosts Wedding Workshops. The most recent workshop was presented in conjunction with a professional makeup artist and helped attendees explore makeup choices to determine the cosmetics that would work best for them in all the photos from their wedding journey, whether an attendee wanted to look glamorous or natural. In addition to makeup, components of wedding style include jewelry, hair, decor and photography, all of which will be addressed in future workshops. The next Wedding Workshop is scheduled for Oct. 18, 2023.

Good practice for married life

What if one half of a couple loves orange and longs to incorporate it in their wedding, but that color isn’t flattering to the other person? Jia can skillfully guide the couple as they consider color variations and combinations en route to ultimately choosing a palette that pleases both of them. Forging a wedding style that’s true to the couple as individuals while celebrating their identity as a couple sounds like good practice for marriage, doesn’t it? And at the end of the day, “it’s all about the couple,” says Jia.
