A rustic winery is a wonderfully romantic setting to start off with. Add in reclaimed wood tables, a gorgeous big red barn & you have the makings for the perfect wedding backdrop. This styled shoot shows you a softer, more feminine take on a vintage inspired wedding with a blush color palette & so many wonderful organic touches that really make this wedding accessible to everyone! At the bottom of this lovely styled shoot, we have pointed out the exact things that Storyboard loves, so you dont miss a thing!

College is not only a place to learn, it often leads to not so chance meetings of soul mates, which is exactly the case with Christina Montero & Hans Reichstetter while attending Georgetown University. As life would have it, even though our couple shared a class freshman year, it wasnt until senior year, with a few more shared classes that Hans finally broke the ice! Han's proposal was completely adorable, incorporating Jake, their cat! "We were at our minuscule studio apartment on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, it was about 9am on a Saturday and I had just woken up. As I was walking to the bathroom, I passed our cat Jake and he was wearing a T-shirt. Yes a T-shirt and it said something along the lines of “Congrats on the Ring”. I freaked out, woke up Hans, who told me to continue on to the bathroom where I was faced with a HUGE collage of photos that spelled out “Will You Marry Me? ". All of the photos were photos of just us over the past 8 years. In the soap dish was the ring, and the tub was filled with roses. Hans got down on one knee and the rest was history. It was amazing! He then whisked me off to a weekend getaway in the Catskill Mountains where we could relax and enjoy our engagement bliss." Keeping with offbeat awesomeness, Christina & Hans choose the ever stunning Vizcaya Museum and Gardens keeping to a vintage glam Hollywood meets shabby chic feel, yet adding touches that kept things light & fun for all the guests. One such act of whimsy was La Hora Loca, which was inspired by Christina's close friend's wedding in Costa Rica at which when the clock struck 11pm, tons of "marti gras" type costumes were handed out to all the guests, one can only imagine the craziness that ensued! We love this dual personality wedding, from the mega glam elements to the innovative ways of keeping it filled with joy, laughter, & love!

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...
