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.
What could spell dark romance better than a moody snow filled woodland world as your stage? While a snowy shoot might have been the goal for this styled elopement photographed by wedding photographer Lissables Photography, a dreamy blizzard filled world took hold! Expressing a dark romance feel, everything about this delicious elopement is style driven. Wedding designer A Pretty Styled Life brought the drama in the from of grandeur & sophistication. Working with a dark palette centered around black & gold with deep burgundy accents, wedding decor details were chosen that echoed an artistic mod edge. Uniquely geometrical elements dotted the sweetheart table from spherical treasures to gilded sea urchin like starbursts. Sweet treats in the form of sugar dusted donuts, chocolate dipped red velvet Oreo's and a petite gold wedding cake found the perfect home among the snow dusted surroundings. It is for me however, the gorgeous and perfectly fashion forward bridal look to the elopement that is everything.

Deserts are simply one of those locales that dial up the romance without even trying. Such is the case with this dreamy desert wedding anniversary session at Mt. Charleston Lase Vegas nestled between the tall canyon walls photographed by Kristen Krehbiel Photography. Driven by the vision of Kali Kingsley from A Pretty Styled Life, a bohemian infused desert wedding took shape in the form of an elevated glam chic picnic for two. Featuring a black trunk draped in gold metallic covered by black lace, gilded antlers and brush stroke stemware, all the couple needed was the perfect blanket and a few pillows! Naturally sweet noshes are the best treat like the floral shaped naked cake, covered in rich berries and cream, that perfectly accented the moody metallic styling. To breath in a touch of light boho feel, our bride donned a Nha Khanh frock featuring a gorgeous lace bust accented by the sweetest greenery floral crown. The real boho charm to our desert wedding anniversary however is our bride's gorgeous chestnut horse who made an appearance, living out every girls' dream fantasy!
July 4th is perhaps one of the most treasured and widely celebrated holidays we as Americans share. Not only does it represent the time our country defined itself, it is the very hallmark of everything that is Americna. There is a deep passion that comes with the fourth of July, be it military praise or the ability to enjoy our freedom, we love to embrace this summer highlight. When something embodies so much meaning it inspires beyond its core, as such gorgeous red white and blue weddings take a cue, crafting serious patriotic love, wedding style. Personally I feel a palette of red white and blue can go array easily. They are three very strong colors when put together, work with the wrong tones of each and all you have is a lot of noise. Work with the right variations of these hues and you have a red white and blue wedding masterpiece. Below is a collection of some of my favorites that took Americana love, a sprinkle of Patriotic beauty and turned it into sheer magic. Blooms, brides, cocktails & treats, you'll find a bevy of patriotic wedding inspiration that will tug at your Americana heartstrings!
