Pure Texas bliss is the best way to sum up Heidi and Ethan's dreamy little Belton Texas wedding. Every detail was chosen to evoke an elevated sense of Texas romance, from the farm wood reception tables set with vintage chairs and china to the neatly folded napkins, each accented by a rosemary clipping to greet the guests. Mercury glass candles dotted the room providing the perfect romantic setting, while a bountiful statement floral suspended centerpiece swayed over the sweetheart table. Matching in floral awe, the couple's ceremony arch was accented by generous blooms in a gorgeous asymmetrical design that was as stunning as it was stately. To capture the southwest spirit of a Texas wedding, the groom's cake, a simple white buttercream treat baked by the Heidi's 86 year old grandmother, was topped with 2 cactus hearts, hand selected by the groom, paired with donut towers, the groom's favorite! The dreamy elevated feel to this Texas wedding makes for a chic blush colored wedding day, one I know many will love!

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!
Today's feature from South Carolina florist and wedding designer Culpepper Designs is pretty much a checklist for what I am loving these days. Gorgeous white washed industrial locale, generous overflowing floral arrangements topped heavy with lush greens, a slightly boho feel, all done with a chic refined hand! Shoot on location by the artful eye of wedding photographer Anna Duncan Photography at Southern Bleachery, the team crafted a world of sophistication in an eco-chic palette of mixed greens, soft ivory with dashes of pink. A rustic wood table served as a focal point, set with a tablescape that drew on gold detailing in the form of candle sticks, trays and metal work pieces intermixed with high and low centerpieces, giving the table the perfect amount of drama. Gold chargers and flatware for each place setting perfectly played off the dreamy tablescape while handcrafted wood Mr & Mrs signs complimented the stately rustic wood table. Hair & Makeup Artist Cotton Rouge did a gorgeous job giving each girl a unique yet wonderfully cohesive look that played up the modern boho feel of the open back wedding dresses and gorgeous 2 piece wedding dress creation. The shoot overall is simply beyond, something I know I can't wait to pin every moment of and savor!

When something dark and dreamy comes my way I always get a little more excited. Weddings are always thought of as white, bright, and full tilt classic storybook. The problem is that that particular mindset only truly appeals to a selection of bride, not everyone. I am delighted to be able to share a bridal session that features wonderfully moody bridal style that is inspired by a fairy tale with a bit of edge photographed by Magdalene Photography. This beauty is shoot on location at the secret garden like oasis of Flora Flowershop in Door County, Wisconsin. Featuring a voluminous Mori Lee wedding dress from I Do Bridal of sparkling tulle, our bride begins her journey in a gathered cathedral veil crafted to create a hair fascinator like effect. As the shoot progresses, our bride trades in her more formal veil for a wild and free organic floral crown. Her loose flowing locks and darker makeup by A&A Artistry, pick up on the more sultry dramatic cues, giving us relief from the more storied white weddings we see so often. This moody bridal session is a delight, something I know will appeal to all brides looking for an alternative to the standard weddings we see each day.
