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.
Sometimes it feels like there are a million and one things to consider when planning a wedding. For anyone that is in love with the idea of a glam wedding, but not all of the extra that goes with, consider a minimalist glam take like this metallic infused South African wedding! With an eye on the gorgeous blank slate event space of The Square Cube, a team of South African wedding pros brought sparkle and sophistication with a few choice pieces. The key to all glam weddings is shine, something this team brought to life by working with a sequin tablecloth and metallic details. No South African wedding would be complete without vibrant proteas, in hues that echoed the pink palette. The beauty to this gem is in what isn't there, the clever choice of sparing decor, allowing shine and reflection to fill the towering space making for a light and dreamy South African wedding!
Whether you're a fan or not, fall is coming here in the US. With fall's arrival so does the power of golden hour in all its color drenching glory. When three wedding pros from Maryland met up for the first time they knew immediately that they had to create together and create they did! Wedding photographer Manda Weaver Photography headed to the coastal shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a swoon-worthy bohemian bridal style inspiration shoot. Florist Amy Nicole Floral took the bohemian bridal spirit to heart, gathering a mix of blooms in an untamed way, true to the bohemian nature. Calligrapher & stationery designer Calligraphette Co crafted a handwritten invitation suite that was gorgeously captured fall romance. The end result is a golden pink kiss of wind swept bay breezed hair with moments plucked straight out of your favorite dream. Fall is here, but can we really be that mad about it if this is how we toy with her??
