Whenever I travel there is a particular place I seek out to visit if they exist in the area, ruins. There is something so incredibly enchanting about them. The mix of man made structure, left undone, overtaken by nature. Over-sized windows that now serve as doorways, a preview into the next landscape that lays just around the corner. I have long since been infatuated with the idea of a ruins wedding. When real bride Lexi, along with wedding photographer Casey Hendrickson Photography, set off for her portrait session, they headed to the dreamy North Carolina hideaway of Old Sheldon Church Ruins. Dripping in southern bride elegance, Lexi's look is one that is perfectly on trend. From a draped & cinched silhouette wedding dress, to the pulled apart braid wrapped around her neck, dotted with baby's breath. The duo took over the ruins around golden hour only to be meet with severe thunderstorms & the threat of tornado. Not ones to back down easily, they instead yielded the inclement weather into artistry, resulting in a wonderfully romantic ruins wedding dream.
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!

Infused by a vibrant jewel tone color palette, this spirit of equestrian wedding is nestled into the forest at Chapel in the Woods. From ceremony to reception, there is an element of whimsy that carries through the day starting with the dark wood dual door entryway that seemingly floats between the trees for the perfection ceremony backdrop. A special touch is the potted ferns that line the aisle capitalizing on their forest locale vibe. For the equestrian wedding reception, a table is set within the stables, while horses take in the affair. A mix of fuchsia, purple and turquoise bring the table to life in the form of details like generous blooms and linens. A favorite touch of ours are the horse figurine escort cards that welcome guests, the perfect playful equestrian wedding touch! Whether end of summer or early spring, the mix of bold palette, wooded locale and elevated wedding details make for the perfect mix!
