Fantasy weddings can be a truly magical thing. In the wrong hands, a bit of a cacophony to the eyes at times. In the right hands, a beautiful source of inspiration. This styled Wonderland wedding is everything right about pulling from a storybook world. Taking a cue from simple details like colors & decor, the skilled wedding pros created an elevated take to the Wonderland wedding. Set at Wonderland In The Woods, wedding photographer Sabrina Hall Photography, captured each little detail that makes this a true beauty, all starting with an incredible dreamy blue wedding dress from Blanc de Blanc! By focusing on just one aspect of the story, the team pulled together a thoughtful tablescape of tea cups, bell jar installations, and blue glassware from Borrow Rentals that was all kinds of perfection. Florist Nikki’s Perfect Petal Designs, inspired by Alice's garden surroundings, created gorgeous floral arrangements that had structure yet featured loose tendrils giving a slightly reclaimed by nature feel. The end result is a take on a Wonderland wedding that is refined & elegant yet wonderfully magical!

There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning. Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see. Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list. When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement. The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool. I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story. I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind. My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light. My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin. True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened. Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...
