Farm to table has made a beautiful resurgence of late, not just in the designation of where our food is coming from but as an embodied spirit for design as well. When a team of Texas wedding vendors got together at the historic Grand Texana dairy barn, they knew that infusing the wedding decor with lush bounty from the earth was the perfect wedding design cue for their barn wedding. Vintage furniture pieces from Love Birds Vintage Rentals were utilized to craft a free floating fireplace mantle ceremony space that dripped in lush greens. Two unique tablescapes were crafted for the barn wedding, a smaller table set against a picture window like sliding door, while the other, a larger more stately wooden farm table, was made complete with a tumbling greenery runner. A favorite piece to the decor overall however was a farmer's market like display which featured a harvest like bounty of carrots, artichokes, lettuce and more. From a wedding design stand point it's important to realize how incredibly cool something as easily looked over as produce can become gorgeous decor. There is an earthy spirit to this barn wedding as a whole, from the floral arrangements...

Deserts are simply one of those locales that dial up the romance without even trying. Such is the case with this dreamy desert wedding anniversary session at Mt. Charleston Lase Vegas nestled between the tall canyon walls photographed by Kristen Krehbiel Photography. Driven by the vision of Kali Kingsley from A Pretty Styled Life, a bohemian infused desert wedding took shape in the form of an elevated glam chic picnic for two. Featuring a black trunk draped in gold metallic covered by black lace, gilded antlers and brush stroke stemware, all the couple needed was the perfect blanket and a few pillows! Naturally sweet noshes are the best treat like the floral shaped naked cake, covered in rich berries and cream, that perfectly accented the moody metallic styling. To breath in a touch of light boho feel, our bride donned a Nha Khanh frock featuring a gorgeous lace bust accented by the sweetest greenery floral crown. The real boho charm to our desert wedding anniversary however is our bride's gorgeous chestnut horse who made an appearance, living out every girls' dream fantasy!
I love a bit of drama and this classic vintage bridal at Biltmore Village Inn beautifully embodies just that! Wanting to work with something a bit more sensual, the team opted for a boudoir come bridal portrait session captured by Audrey Goforth Photography, tucked into one of the stately rooms at the inn. Playing off the historic bed & breakfast interior, the a deep moody palette was brought to life centered around berry rich hued florals, styled by Flowers by Larry. In order to inject a fresh modern take on the vintage bridal style, a stunning bead work lace top wedding dress from Wildflower Bridal served as the centerpiece, a departure from the more common strapless gowns we see all too often. A long Rapunzel-couture inspired braid from Love, Daisy and classic red-lip look by Beauty by Carisse amped up the overall look and feel, while a watercolor calligraphy invitation suite from Long Village Studio & wedding cake from Tiffany's Baking Co. added soft feminine touches. The result is a timeless look that is every bit classic and vintage as it is modern!
One of my favorite things that florists are doing nowadays involves a bit of modern flora hunting! Instead of heading to the fridges of their local flower markets, florists like FluidBloom Designs are opting to challenge themselves by working with greenery that is around them in the wild. Such is the stunning found forage foliage bouquet crafted for today's gorgeous bohemian bridal session at La Purisima Mission photographed by wedding photographer Alexandra Wallace. With a uniquely historical backdrop like the mission, Seabiscuit was filmed there!, Alexandra really allowed the dreamy locale and hauntingly beautiful natural light to shape each moment. Wedding dresses from Daughters of Simone flitted in the wind beautifully echoing the oversized foraged bouquet. The bohemian bridals as a whole are something otherworldly and the bouquet is everything!
