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!
This little dreamy french inspired wedding is going to make your heart blush! Respectfully... I was in trouble before I even started to cull this feature! Gorgeous locale, beautiful artful photography by Texas wedding photographer Al Gawlik Photography, perfectly styled table setting complete with suspended centerpiece, a dreamy little lounge area, the perfect rustic chic dessert display and florals upon florals upon florals!! I mean seriously, its a miracle this romantic hill country French inspired wedding feature isn't pages long! Starting off with a gorgeous locale like Texas' own Garden Grove is always a good thing! Add in beautiful event design from Pink Parasol Designs and Coordinating along with gobsmackingly yummy florals from The Flower Girl TX and you're well more than half way there! With choice French inspired wedding decor details from the likes of Bee Lavish & Whim Event Rentals, Garden Grove was transformed into the south of France! Whether its the hanging wicker baskets of lilacs that gets you, or perhaps its the old iron bar cart topped with fresh madeleines you can almost smell! Or is it the most perfect rustic naked wedding cake, sugar dusted into a check pattern of course that sends your heart racing!

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...

Aptly named Shadow & The Soul, this Jen Huang Photography workshop shoot embodies a polish & sophistication that is effortless in spirit. To evoke a beautiful because you are, not because your tried, chic bride persona, styling began with a free flowing Saja Wedding Gown beautifully punctuated by a silk tulle veil & floral crown. Locks were left loose to take on a life of their own while makeup was kept just strong enough to smolder at the eye & blush at the lips. A selection of unique earthbound blooms were brought to gather to serve as accent pieces of harvest & bounty, showing off the diverse side of the floral world crafted by Saipua. To enhance the deep lush feel of the day, Lael Cakes crafted a dark chocolate two tier naked cake that was beautifully accented by the addition of a torn open pomegranate, a striking juxtaposition...
