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.
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.
Inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, a team of local West Virginia wedding pros turned The Carriage House into a wonderfully romantic winter wedding. Working with rich textures like fur and velvet, a complimentary color palette of deep reds and blush pinks were selected to breathe life into their winter wedding. A stunning vintage soft pink tufted couch from The Mustard Couch created the most gorgeous portrait opportunity, perfect for canoodling. Wanting to taking a playful turn, an outdoor reception table was set, lined with rich greens dotted by organic detailing such as picturesque pomegranates. Really giving off the romantic storybook feel is combination of stone locale in the Carriage House plus our bride's stunning long sleeved full skirt Hayley Paige. Maybe its just me, but this is the kind of winter wedding everyone goes nuts about!
