There is a lot to love about today's styled inspiration shoot. From an aesthetic stand point, the styling is right in my personal wheel house. I love everything about dragging furniture outdoors as there is just something that seems so against the grain awesome about it. I utterly adore the use of old storm windows gently hung from swaying tree branches, drinking jars adorned with simple lace bows, earthy lush rows of moss and so incredibly much more. However what is probably my favorite part of this whole shoot is whom the models are! Alexia Wardell Photography fall into a super cute, creative idea that is pure genius!

Captured within this wedding, an absolutely elegant & lovely affair, is a bridal portrait that literally made me drop everything I was doing and just think to myself, damn,that is one stunning photograph! (and a ping of jealousy that it wasnt me, if I am being totally honest!) After I moved passed that photograph, I was greeted with not 1 but 2 adorable flower girls, gorgeous bridesmaids in well mix matched fuchsia dresses, a very dapper looking groom & a super picturesque venue. Angela Vineyard & Brett Giarratano had a whirlwind courtship that cultivated in such a lovely day for the two of them!
Love is a stunning backdrop as it is, toss in the absolutely jaw dropping Mammoth Lake and you have the makings of the most picture perfect wedding. Erin King & Todd Gelatka tied the knot in a place that had very special meaning to them from the start. Opting to play up to & enhance the already natural beauty of their surroundings, utilizing choice florals, little birdies, chalkboards & so much more. Guest were treated to an outdoor ceremony seated on half cut logs, while a special surprise guest popped in for a visit. If that surroundings weren't enough of a treat already, as the sun set, a bonfire was light & S'mores where broken out!

Today's feature is a gorgeously styled inspiration shoot that reminds me of how wonderful it is to be girly! A softly swept textured updo perfectly pined with a peach hued garden rose gives our model a romantic feel. Adorned with a double strand tear drop pearl necklace, her lace A-Line gown is complimented in kind. Keeping with the feel of soft kisses on a summer's day, Garden Roses take center stage both in adorning our bride as well as in her bouquet & even as a message in a bottle. Garden Roses were a perfect choice for our bride as the layers of petals resembles that of the florals on our brides sash, bringing her look full circle. This sweet shoot is the perfect personification of being feminine & classic with a solid nod to romance.
