The Gray Dove | vendor spotlight
We have been photographing weddings in this area for over thirteen years, and have had the pleasure to meet so many great people who work alongside of us in the industry. Sometimes, it might just be a “hello” in passing on a wedding day, or seeing someone briefly around town. We realized that we might know the work of a wedding planner, florist, or the distinctive flavor of a caterer, without really knowing the people behind the scenes. So we started reaching out to some of our amazing local vendors, and have begun photographing and interviewing them. We’d like to give potential brides a great behind-the-scenes look at the wedding professionals in the area, and the personalities behind their work. Last year, we did a fun inspiration shoot
at a fantastic new rustic venue, but only recently did I have a chance to get to know Josh + Melissa Cain of The Gray Dove
How would you describe yourself?
I’m a very creative think-outside-the-box kind of person when it comes to ideas related to giving out thing new life. I am persistent at times when I have ideas and plans in mind, I like to see them through. And lastly, I’m witty especially as a default when things don’t go as planned. As a result, our venue always has fun, exciting and interesting additions!
Could you characterize your style in three words?
Eclectic in some ways. My style is basically a reflection of my life. I live on a farm and am a mother. Farm and kid-friendly is a must!
What sets you apart from your competition?
Our location, the proximity to the interstate and surrounding areas and our love of the history of our property and buildings on it.
