A misnomer that needs to be abolished, is that a country wedding can only be done one way. The beauty to today's utterly dreamy bohemian wedding is that it is all about elevating a country affair. Inspired by a romantic bohemian wedding with whimsical influences, a team of Pacific Northwest wedding pros set off to create a wedding of polish and sophistication. Dairyland serves as the perfect backdrop, a locale injecting just the right rustic flavor with the platform for elevated style. Utilizing a wide range of materials and textures, the team created experiences throughout the property with the keystone piece being an incredibly cool triangle backdrop. No bohemian wedding would be complete without a world of dripping greens, something From the Ground Up Floral delivered in spades from the asymetrical swag detailing in the ceremony decor to the gorgeous hand-tied bouquet. This styled shoot is a sweet love song to how a setting is just a setting, you can make it all be exactly what you want it to be.
The heavens have inspired the people of the world for centuries. Whether its the twinkle in the sky, the beauty of the twilight colors or the mystique of another place so many worlds away, our heads swim with their euphoric enchantment. Its only fitting that such a thing would influence and inspire the wedding worlds as well. The idea of a celestial wedding brings a jewel tone palette, a dash of metallic detailing, and bevvy of geometric inspiration. When our friends at Love Inc saw David’s Bridal Ruffle Trim Faux Wrap Bridesmaid Dress collection, they knew a celestial wedding was the perfect way to showcase the figure loving bridesmaid dresses, no matter your style preference, shape, size or budget.
Inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, a team of local West Virginia wedding pros turned The Carriage House into a wonderfully romantic winter wedding. Working with rich textures like fur and velvet, a complimentary color palette of deep reds and blush pinks were selected to breathe life into their winter wedding. A stunning vintage soft pink tufted couch from The Mustard Couch created the most gorgeous portrait opportunity, perfect for canoodling. Wanting to taking a playful turn, an outdoor reception table was set, lined with rich greens dotted by organic detailing such as picturesque pomegranates. Really giving off the romantic storybook feel is combination of stone locale in the Carriage House plus our bride's stunning long sleeved full skirt Hayley Paige. Maybe its just me, but this is the kind of winter wedding everyone goes nuts about!
You're not supposed to have favorites. They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart. The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it? When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel. Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me. If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth. There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success. The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor. A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout. Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy. Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details. Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...
