1. Rustic Winter Harvest Wedding With A Boho Spirit

    Love.  Its often described through certain colors, certain flowery descriptors.  The truth is, love doesnt fit into one perfect box.  Love is also deep, dark, mysterious, brooding, angry, fierce, tormented and often wildly intense.  While today is surely to be filled with stereotypical interpretations,  I offer a version of the moody side in the form of The Gather Workshop.  A collection of Michigan's wedding pros got together to create a unique and thoughtful styled shoot that is a gorgeous marriage of rustic winter meets harvest wedding.  Working with the stark and bare world that fills our field of vision in the winter months, the team brought life to the harvest wedding by utilizing a bounty of earthly goods.  Fresh elements like ornamental and real cabbages, artichokes, carrots, peppers, apples and so much more appear in places like bouquets and table settings.  From a wedding fashion standpoint, the dress is boho chic, accented by the lush and overflowing floral crown, a harvest wedding must.  Our bride's winter wrap and antler detailing are reminders of season, while a table nestled between the evergreen's provides the perfect amount of green to take our minds...

  2. Poinsettia Farm Red Essence Spanish Wedding With Eclectic Detailing

    In my time I have seen some incredible Spanish weddings.  No matter what the artistic direction might be, there are two elements always present, style & passion.  When wedding planner La Puesta en Escena sent this red essence Spanish wedding my way, set in the unique locale of a poinsettia farm, I was immediately captivated by all it had to offer.  The location, the styling, the incredibly unique bouquet and the delicious moodiness with which it was all captured spoke to me.  I also love the insight on why the location was so choice, "The poinsettia, so recognized as a Christmas plant, has a lot of work, (to become a full size plant) which made me think about a wedding. It needs 6 months of preparation, from planting the cutting until it starts to bloom.  All this taking care of it with care and nutrients."  Joined by Spanish wedding photographer Carlos Lucca Fotografo, the team pulled together a dark & wondrous styled shoot that spills of moody love and deep red passion.  While each image speaks for itself in this moody Spanish wedding, do not miss the in's and out's of why each element was chosen after the gallery.  This is not your cookie cutter wedding, and for that, I could not love it anymore than I currently do.

  3. Brooding Romance Antelope Island Utah Wedding

    Not everyone craves a cookie cutter wedding, nor should they.  The stylish fashion forward bride is probably my absolute favorite.  Color, is nothing to her but a vehicle for style.  Black, white, fuchsia, they are all equal, what matters is how evocative one feels over another given its overall design.  For those leaning toward a more moody & mysterious wedding style, something like this Gothic chic Utah wedding hits on all the right levels.  With a hearty focus on wedding fashion, this sophisticated formal exudes atmospheric perfection.  All starting with a black wedding dress from Bling It On Dress Rentals, details like sheer long sleeves accented by hand beaded detailing and a cafe au lait underlay are the touches that elevate & add intrigue.  Dialing up the brooding romance allure, a bridal up-do just the right balance of undone polish, plays a heavy hand into the romance factor.  The rest of this dark & dreamy Utah wedding is the sweeping landscapes that is Antelope Island, captured with beauty by wedding photographer Ashley Smith Photography.  

  4. Artful Fine Art Film Noir Moody Boudoir In Atlanta

    You're not supposed to have favorites.  They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart.  The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it?  When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel.  Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me.  If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth.  There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success.  The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor.  A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout.  Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy.  Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details.  Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...
