There is something so absolutely lovely & dreamy about this styled shot. The overall thought behind the creation of this stunning shoot was to put together a look & feel for brides on a tighter budget. The use of feathers & lace really do wonders in this gorgeous rustic set up, bringing an organic yet elevated feel to the overall aesthetic. Two models, with 2 very different looks are featured, giving our bride to be 2 different wedding day visions. One a more classic stoic elegant bride, the other a more vivacious fashion forward bride. Both bridal looks work harmoniously with the heighten rustic setting, from the lace gowns with complimentary lace trimmed veils to the show stopping feather ball gown. In addition to the elegant design both in decor as well as bridal fashion, there are some truly lovely photographic moments, my favorite being the black & white image with our ball gown bride seated in a tall back chair, wistfully looking out the window. Allow this dreamy fall come winter bridal inspiration shoot inspire you to create you own world of elevated rustic design for your winter wonderland wedding!

"The concept for this stylized wedding shoot was a laid back farm feel with a touch of vintage glamour I knew the location had to be at Heaven's Ranch in Chino Hills, CA because it provided the perfect backdrop of an unpretentious surrounding that exuded a warm rustic feel. I want to thank Janelle Copeland and Fabiola Gomez from The Cake Mamas for the amazing wedding cake they did (did I mention it took them 15 hours...but the way it turned out--I'm smitten!!). I love the way they incorporated those vintage ruffles and the silver accents. And the flowers! Oh the flowers-- they are by Andria Ibanez from Divine Blooms and Designs. I loved the use of the tin, turquoise, and lace. The flowers looked so farm rustic and gorgeous! Because we love rustic details in a wedding we decided to do something fun with place cards. No more reading to figure out where you're sitting. These guests will look for their photos that they previously uploaded and sent to the bride and groom. Pictures were then attached with a ribbon on an apple that could later be given to the farm to feed the horses (yes, that's edible ink). We also love that guests don't have to walk around aimlessly looking for...

Weather is unpredictable and let's be honest, scares the crap out of just about every single bride to be! Like little weather channel hawks, we stalk doppler radar, praying for the slightest shift in wind that would secure us that perfect wedding day weather. Kristin Ward & Scott Thompson had one heck of a weather threat leading up to their wedding day! The morning of their wedding, mother nature was feeling frisky, actually leading to a tornado being predicted to drop! In an awesome twist of weather fate, the weather held off all day long! Not deterred by the weather, Kristin dressed in a stunning lace gown with a simple soft satin sash in champagne, opting to finish her look with a gorgeous lace trimmed floor length veil. Strong purples & bright greens dressed the room while guests were treated to custom beer koozies....you know, to have and hold and all! While the wind never quite died down, I actually think it made for some wonderful pictures, especially with that gorgeous veil floating all around!!

Start your week off right with a sweet Texas wedding! Melanie Daniell & Matt Bowling's wedding under the giant oaks of Texas has a dreamy country feel to it. The men were outfitted in fresh crisp blue jeans, khaki blazers & naturally cowboy boots & a hat or two! The gals donned handmade mix matched floral dress by the bride's mother! It was of the utmost importance to Melanie that they married outside under the giant sprawling oak trees, to which her dream came true when they discovered Cathedral Oaks Event Center. A sturdy branch above their ceremony space was outfitted with mums which hung in glass globes in a very Labyrinth (Ps-talking about the movie) way. Tables were decorated with a combination of white mums in mason jars and birdhouses with blue wood planter stands to display their personal photos. I must say however, I am absolutely crushing on the wedding cake! Rich butter cream frosting that was whipped and styled left to be a star in and of it self! Delicate pink roses and mums were draped down the side as a finishing touch! The cake & the wedding is so very country chic!
