1. Gorgeously Moody Bridal Style Inspired By ‘La Primavere’ by Alphonse Mucha

    Gorgeous florals plus wonderfully dreamy moody photography is practically my kryptonite. Dial in the most perfect hair & makeup, a dewy faced model and body skimming wedding dresses into almost hauntingly dreamy bridal style and well... just consider me down for the count into wedding oblivion! Storyboard Wedding fave & resident beauty expert, New York City hair & makeup artist Beauty by Eden Di Bianco recently teamed up with New York wedding photographer Claudia McDade to breathe some life into a late spring bridal style session that was deeply inspired by the Art Nouveau stylings inspired by 'La Primavere' by Alphonse Mucha. To start with, generous large blossom floral crowns were constructed by New York City florist Aurora Botanica in a mix of deeply moody hues from purple, coral and minty hellebores. Each arrangement is carefully crafted to emphasize the beauty of each bloom all while playing the perfect supporting role to every other aspect of the overall look. To capture the essence that is Art Nouveau, Eden focused on perfecting a creamy, natural complexion without hard contouring and romantic but simple hair with texture and movement, a look that served to enhance fawn like Delaney's naturally soft beauty. The most perfect thing about bridal style is how personal you...

  2. Romantic Industrial Loft Wedding At Ontario’s Arlington Hotel

    When a venue is filled with exposed brick walls, floor to ceiling windows, restored original hardwood floors and unique industrial lighting, how can your head not start to swim with romantic ideas for a gorgeous loft wedding! Set at Ontario's Arlington Hotel, Florist La Petite Fleur along with event designer AWE Events whipped up the atmosphere for this styled loft wedding that felt both romantic & whimsical. To set the stage the team utilized the tall ceilings to their advantage, creating a unique suspended amaryllis floral installation that floated above the ceremony aisle. Utilizing chic vintage decor pieces, a cozy lounge was set for the couple to snuggle in, featuring a creative and cool suspended box of amaryllis that echoed the ceremony aisle which accented the air above. Sweet treats were displayed while noshes like old fashioned donuts and cakes were styled with lush mixed greens. Tables were set with simple place settings of classic white & silver, while earthy organic goodness was brought in in the form of petite succulent place cards. While classic at hear, this loft wedding has a fresh modern feel. There is much to love, however the easy star here is the amaryllis installations!

  3. Urban Garden Wedding At Articulture In Austin Texas

    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.

  4. Beautifully Moody Stormy Summer Beach Wedding

    If there is one thing I always show up for, one thing I always applaud, its that which is off the beaten path and done beautifully! When this stormy little styled shoot landed in my inbox I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Did they mean stormy ironically? I mean let's be honest, we're all basically trained to fear the elements.... 'Dear God please don't let it rain on my wedding day', 'please don't let this Nor'easter hit on the day of my outdoor styled shoot', and so on! The reality is, if you can bear it... if you can stick around, there is some real true magic to be had when weather comes knocking! There are two things about this shoot that Savannah wedding stylist Urban Poppy did that I am IN.LOVE. with. Firstly, they took the fairly standard idea of a beach wedding and... well tossed it in the ocean! Instead the crew focused on upscale elevated detailing that created a wonderfully stylish stormy dream beach wedding. In place of your standard size table, a coffee table was used inviting guests to sit directly onto the soft sands evoking a one with the earth yet whimsical feel. The table was dressed with simple white plates and silverware...
