There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning. Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see. Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list. When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement. The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool. I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story. I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind. My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light. My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin. True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened. Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...
Drawing inspiration from the floral pattern within her gorgeous open back lace wedding dress from A&B Bridal Shop, bride Camille allowed nature's own beauty to do the talking. Taking place on her family's ranch, this Texas hill country wedding is all about minimalist reserve done in an elevated chic manner. While it might not be a wedding that is overflowing on details, each and every touch is done to perfection. Petite arrangements flowed throughout, featuring a striking juxtaposition of light & dark hues. The same floral accents were used to create a dreamy floral river that wrapped itself around the handmade cake, baked by a neighbor who does cakes on the side! In true minimalist spirit, place settings welcomed guest with an elegantly tied twine and rosemary accented napkin. While every loving detail is divine, wedding photographer Anne Brookshire Photography does a stunning job of capturing the day in a larger than life way. From showcasing the swoony love between Camille & Jon to highlighting the incredible hideaway that is her family's sanctuary, this is easily one of the more chic country weddings we've seen this year.
As we shift away from the summer months, heading into the fall wedding season, there is a playful spirit that takes over. Hollywood is a fantastic source of inspiration for all things, those especially wedding. Woodland weddings are a perfect place to harness the fall energy while offering up a playland to work with. A group of California wedding pros got together, wanting to bring to life a Hollywood inspired fairy tale wedding, Snow White & The Huntsman. Taking a cue from fantasy, the team decided to articulate their vision into a woodland wedding filled with antique decor & furnishings that spoke to a time long ago. Working with pieces from a byfone era, elements like heirloom china & jewelry from Koryn of Intimate Gatherings grandmother were used. Dipping into fall's own hues, berries and blushes from The Wild Floral Co dotted the warm tone surroundings. Wanting to capture the true adventurous nature to the cinematic revision, two stunning wedding dresses dance in the dappled woodland light playing beautifully on the lighter and darker side of the story. Bringing everything together, Victoria Johansson Photography artfully captured each savory little detail, giving life to the fairy tale story.
