1. Poinsettia Farm Red Essence Spanish Wedding With Eclectic Detailing

    In my time I have seen some incredible Spanish weddings.  No matter what the artistic direction might be, there are two elements always present, style & passion.  When wedding planner La Puesta en Escena sent this red essence Spanish wedding my way, set in the unique locale of a poinsettia farm, I was immediately captivated by all it had to offer.  The location, the styling, the incredibly unique bouquet and the delicious moodiness with which it was all captured spoke to me.  I also love the insight on why the location was so choice, "The poinsettia, so recognized as a Christmas plant, has a lot of work, (to become a full size plant) which made me think about a wedding. It needs 6 months of preparation, from planting the cutting until it starts to bloom.  All this taking care of it with care and nutrients."  Joined by Spanish wedding photographer Carlos Lucca Fotografo, the team pulled together a dark & wondrous styled shoot that spills of moody love and deep red passion.  While each image speaks for itself in this moody Spanish wedding, do not miss the in's and out's of why each element was chosen after the gallery.  This is not your cookie cutter wedding, and for that, I could not love it anymore than I currently do.

  2. Rustic Elegant Wedding Perfection At Tennessee’s Candoro Marble Factory

    Of all the different styles one could put together when it comes to wedding design, a true favorite for me is rustic elegance. It is also, in my opinion, one that isn’t the easiest to pull off. As a rule, to craft a wedding like this, you need to start with an elegant wedding style as a foundation much the way TeamWedding, and The Bride Link have done. To then massage in rustic wedding décor, you need to understand the nuances that make it so, allowing that to guide your décor selections. Simply opting for a wood table isn’t quite enough. Choose the wrong one and it looks more ragged than sophisticated. French country style does an unbelievably gorgeous job of crafting rustic elegance. Polished, yet gently worn, natural and wholesome all while encompassing regal perfection, much the way the natural wood table and modern black plates from All Occasion Tent & Party Rentals do. Location is key, you can almost never have any sort of an elegant wedding without a venue that first exudes elegance, much like the one here at the incredible Candoro Marble Factory. Then there is the fashion, it’s pretty impossible to have an elegant wedding without stunning wedding attire choices that drip in style like the Gilded Gown and Regal Tuxedo showcased here. Driving this dreamy rustic elegant wedding home is the artful eye...

  3. Makapuu Beach Sunrise Hawaiian Boudoir Adorned By Roses

    Boudoir is often thought of in only one way…. lingerie clad and overly sexy.  There are, in fact, many other stunning & wonderful interpretations of boudoir, not all in lingerie either.  Today’s styled shoot from wedding photographer Vanessa Hicks Photography rides a gorgeous line between Hawaiian boudoir meets sunrise bridal session.  No matter which you decide to color with, it’s a delicious treat.  Starting at 4am, (4am!) Vanessa headed out with model Leslie to the rocky shores of Makapuu Beach, armed with a lush tropical flower crown & rose adorned veil courtesy of florist Creative Concepts by Jeff .  The duo found the most amazing locale for this Hawaiian boudoir meets bridals, a locale forged of volcanic earth, carved out by the mighty pacific. While some models might not have been up for the cold, wind, & getting wet by the waves, Leslie delivered in so many ways.  Wearing a simple, classic white one piece swimsuit, the pairing of the floral crown and cathedral length veil take us into an ethereal world drenched in yummy golden hues.  Leslie is one of the rare ones, able to render you spellbound by her direct to camera eyes the very same way she is able to with her megawatt smile...

  4. Early Autumn Golden Hour Dream Forest Wedding At Historic Castle Rock

    There is an undeniable beauty to the light that falls just as the sun is setting, a light lovingly referred to as 'Golden Hour'.  A warm honey hue cast all around, the light in just the right place within the sky to create dreamy halos.  A time of year when golden hour is especially delicious is the end of summer, a time when fall ever so slightly begins to peek through.  Wedding photographer Rachel Fugate wanted to harness that earthly beauty, putting together a romantic styled shoot at the Historic Rock Castle that evoked a dark early autumn forest wedding feel.  Riding the line between a indie style meets haunting sophistication, the shoot serves as a love letter of inspiration to those looking to stylistically be their own.  Another key element at play that makes the dark forest wedding so successful is the hearty earthy nod found in elements like the two tier wedding cake adorned with blooms and berries, and an utterly to die for hand-tied bouquet by Hannah Jones.  Each capitalizes on elements derived from the earth, displayed in such a way that their true beauty and rich falling loving hues become stars all their own.  This late summer forest wedding is the stuff winter dreams are made of, the kind that leaves you swoony in the head for the beauty of things to come.
