As I write this post, the irony isnt lost on me. When Texas wedding photographer Angela King Photo sent this dreamy styled shoot my way some months ago, I pleaded to let me hold it back with the intention of featuring it right as spring was truly coming to life. Meanwhile, here in the northeast anyway, we're on our 5/6th snow in a month.... its April, people, April. So instead, I now share this with you tied up in wanderlust for a warmer, sweeter time, living vicariously through Angela's images. I'm a sucker for flowers, this a known fact, and easily one of the key pieces that drew me to this Texas wedding. A bevvy of blooms dance through each vignette, be it the drippy garland for portraits, the petite bridal floral crown, or the lush multiple piece tablescape. A floral roll call if you will of amaranthus, blue cornflower, peach stock, and succulents, form the garland of the beautiful site for a ceremony and couple’s portraits. The bride’s bouquet is a mix of jasmine vine, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus, blue delphinium...
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 real life couple Jennifer and Chris, who married in the Dominican Republic, a team of Hudson Valley wedding vendors wanted to create seasonless styled tropical wedding inspiration. The result is a dreamy little minimalist loft wedding that blends a modern atmosphere with tropical fauna. Freeing themselves from seasonal restraints, the design evokes a windswept outdoor aesthetic in a fresh urban way by housing Lady Slipper Orchid stems in solitary glass vessels by the plenty. The bride's look is another nod to tropics, a lace wedding dress that features a convertible skirt, something perfect for tropical destination weddings. Keeping in the more modern loft wedding spirit, a lace overlay from BHLDN was added, giving the overall look a more timeless, classic feel. Simple, delicate, well appointed details are the touches that bring this minimalist loft wedding to life. There is a beauty in the retrain and flavor in the dash of color.
Raising at dawn, our bride and groom sought the sun. For the perfect locale, they headed to the open heart that is Snow Canyon Park for a dreamy intimate Utah elopement. Simple and incredibly private, it is as if the entire world was made just for them. The connection to mother earth runs deep, as does the desire for chic stylish attire. A sophisticated wedding evolves in the form of wonderfully fitted fabrics and boho bridal headpieces. The rest to this Utah elopement is all about moments captured between the two young loves. A certain vibrancy rising with the sun from the dusty yellow floors, filling the sky like a wash of love particles. Not all weddings require an audience, and those that do not, certainly do not require that you comprise on style in the process.
