1. Wistful Rustic Chic Inspiration Shoot With Touches of Lace, Feathers & Snow

    There is something so absolutely lovely & dreamy about this styled shot. The overall thought behind the creation of this stunning shoot was to put together a look & feel for brides on a tighter budget. The use of feathers & lace really do wonders in this gorgeous rustic set up, bringing an organic yet elevated feel to the overall aesthetic. Two models, with 2 very different looks are featured, giving our bride to be 2 different wedding day visions. One a more classic stoic elegant bride, the other a more vivacious fashion forward bride. Both bridal looks work harmoniously with the heighten rustic setting, from the lace gowns with complimentary lace trimmed veils to the show stopping feather ball gown. In addition to the elegant design both in decor as well as bridal fashion, there are some truly lovely photographic moments, my favorite being the black & white image with our ball gown bride seated in a tall back chair, wistfully looking out the window. Allow this dreamy fall come winter bridal inspiration shoot inspire you to create you own world of elevated rustic design for your winter wonderland wedding!

  2. Burlap & Lace Define This DIY Dreamer’s Delight In A Vintage Inspired Washington Wedding

    There is so much lovely going on in this wedding I am not sure where to start! Our adorable couple, Tamara Unruh & Steve Fitchner, decided to spend their day surrounded in burlap & lace! Such a fun, vintage inspired pairing of textures, which does wonders for setting a romantic stage. Our couple incorporated many DIY projects into their overall aesthetic to achieve their rustic chic look. The aisles where lined with tall vases filled with stones, flowers & floating candles while guests were treated to a gorgeous spread of tasty treats & baked goods. As they made their way around, guest were directed to leave love notes for our couple in a well styled display featuring a vintage type writer, moss covered initials, old school vintage suitcases, and so much more! Perhaps however the most shocking detail of note, our poor bride's mother actually fell and broke her hip the day before the wedding!! Having the good fortune of being released the morning of the wedding, she was escorted by an ambulance & medics in order to be able to attend her daughter's wedding! Swoon & Pin away my friends!

  3. An Offbeat & Truly Unique Wedding At A Manhattan Bookstore

    Marisa Rothstein & Nolan Robinson wanted a unique, slightly offbeat, fun wedding in a location was sure to fulfill their needs! Landing on the Housing Works Bookstore (which is a nonprofit), they choose to focus their money where they felt it was the most important. Opting out of traditional things such as cake cutting, tons of flowers and so forth, they instead wrote unique vows for one another and other creative elements. In lieu of a guestbook (and in keeping with the bookstore theme) Marisa & Nolan had utilized an adorable "card catalog" drawer to give guests a way to write their best wishes or a note of advice to the couple. As guests arrived, they were treated to Ketubah signing downstairs, while being able to enjoy a cocktail hour before the ceremony upstairs. Immediately following the ceremony the chairs were whisked away and the crowd was swept up in the Hora dance, complete with chair-lifting and everything. Following this, guests sat down for a meal and were treated to not only the traditional toasts but a fully prepared skit depicting the couple's story performed by Marisa's sister and friends!

  4. A Touch of Africa In Today’s Stunning Color Filled Styled Wedding Shoot

    "I wanted to create something vibrant in the middle of a very natural location. I was inspired by the headpieces, the colors, the involvement of the bridal party, the jewels, the gown changes and the natural elements that made this wedding different than any I had ever seen before. So, I teamed up with Aaron Haslinger Photography, Richardson's Florist, Rusty Love Vintage Rentals, Preston's Stationery, Robert Ashtin Salon and Second Nature by Meg Browning to create an editorial style shoot that brought the latest tribal trends in fashion to the wedding scene. The team was great. The models were awesome! And, the results were daring and fresh. While this shoot is definitely an exaggerated take on a fashion trend, I think REAL weddings can be inspired by it's fun color scheme, amazing stationery, and willingness to take risks in pulling fashion trends into bridal."
