If you're anything like me you have a wide appreciation of mixed styles. Today's styled shoot from Austin wedding photographer Twin Lens Weddings delves deep into a mix of two styles: urban industrial meets garden. I love the idea of this urban garden wedding with its blend of raw and rough meets feminine & green. The setting for this garden wedding could not be more of a perfect stage, Austin's own Articulture. Rather then try to hide or disguise their surroundings the team embraced their gravel patio flooring, adding strong earthy elements in the form of a raw wood slice table, grassy quiet spots and drippy florals. Eloquent design choices were made for the tablescape, one that featured a mix of petite floral and gold rim china, accented by gold flatware and etched crystal glassware. A mix of seeded eucalyptus, amaranthus and coral peonies dressed the raw wood table, while petite pies brought the perfect down home feel. Taking a design note from the urban garden wedding, an anti-floral crown was woven into the bride's side swept updo, giving that perfect garden chic feel.

Early spring is a truly fun time to head to the woods. Life is still pretty quiet and the temperature is almost utter perfection for snuggling! Molly & Matt teamed up with Wisconsin wedding photographer McNiel Photography to head out to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail for a woods engagement session. After something a bit more fun & unique then a simple forest session, the couple enlisted KP Designs to create a swoony enchanted camping world for them to play in! With a few choice vintage decor pieces in place such as book planters, an old radio and retro tins made into planters, the scene was set. Literary touches were a gorgeous underlying theme to their wood engagement session inspired by something Matt's grandparents used to say. Matt's grandpa met his grandmother when he was in Ireland during World War II, and soon after brought her to the US as his bride. They always called each other their "everlovin'" as it was apparently an Irish term. Before Matt's Grandma passed away, she made a point to tell them that she knew they were each other's Everlovin'. Ever since it has stuck for them, and serves as the perfect touch to tie their woods engagement session together!
Today's loft boudoir session from the mind meld of florist Bixby and Pine and Samantha McFarlen is practically a love letter of confidence to any woman who's ever considered a boudoir session but has shied away. While the world will never get its fill of the sultry more sensual boudoir variety, the team wanted to step away from the standard, drifting into a loft boudoir session that was light, airy and filled with delightfully feminine & pretty things. In doing so the duo enlisted Unique and Chic Rentals to fill the room with vintage decor pieces, while Bixby accented the room with lush draped greens dotted by peachy garden roses, pink ranunculus and wax flowers. The girls were greeted by a wondrous mix of styling treats from the likes of Ariel Jennifer Taub, Le Salon Bridal, Malis-Henderson, Thomas Knoell Designs, Ella Moss, Lucy and Lyla, and Plum Pretty Sugar. If any had had reservations of posing for a boudoir session prior to walking into the room, I am sure those concerns melted away within seconds! The result is a delightful loft boudoir shoot filled with exposed brick walls and high ceilings. A sweetly bright and romantic setting that surrounded, allowing each girl to be filled with joy. While there are certainly a few shots that follow suit with more traditional boudoir, there is an ease...
