When you start off with a backdrop like the sprawling garden grounds of Camarillo Ranch, its easy to simply rest on the beauty that is around you. What many couple’s dont realize is that a stunning backdrop is simply the start, that armed with the right team you dial up your surroundings into a botanical wedding dream like no other. Inspired by the bohemian spirit, California wedding photographer Christy McCarter Photography, event planner Sincerely Jessie Events and Dish Wish Events along with the keen floral eye of Dulce Floral Design created the perfect boho botanical wedding that reads like a dream! Details like a wild botanical bouquet, low back wedding dress with free flowing skirt, Gypsy style sweetheart table tucked away into the garden and so much more, its easy to swoon with each little piece. There is a reason that a bohemian vibe is so in favor, accent that spirit with botanical sensibilities and its utterly beyond!
For this styled shoot we designed the look for a boho botanical inspiration, including elements of wild olive branches, eucalyptus, and light peach Juliet roses. Camarillo Ranch has numerous gardens on site so we wanted to incorporate a wild botanical bouquet and flower crown while keeping to a light and airy color palette of sage, pale peach, and ivory. The bride?s dress is tiered lace with a beautiful low back that is perfect for the free spirited bride, designed by Erin Fetherston exclusively for Free People – and for brides on a budget this dress is a steal of a deal at $375! The bride’s gold dipped geode necklace was purchased at Solid Gold Texas in Austin, TX.
The most breathtaking and unique backdrop for a wedding at the Camarillo Ranch is the giant Fig Moreton Bay Tree. This tree overlooks an expansive lawn surrounded by lush gardens and the gorgeous Victorian home built in 1892. Perfect for couples who want a dramatic and stunning background for their ceremony.
Floral inspiration: My inspiration was bohemian. I knew that I wanted something less structured for the bride?s bouquet and more free, making the air plant the main focus. The centerpieces were inspired by the gold vintage pieces used on the table. Using a gold rounded bowl as the container inspired my shape of the design, but still leaving room for a few random blooms to be free. The bouquet blooms consisted of: Rose Gard Juliet Peach, Seeded Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Willow, Olives branches, white Astrantia, and a large air plant.
The sweetheart table embodies a romantic bohemian style with the Gypsy china collection from Dish Wish, brass vessels and candle sticks, and antique crystal and amber glassware. The brass stemware was also from Dish Wish. The bride and groom seating cards are tied to deer antlers to add a rustic element, and the linen woven table runner is from West Elm.The table arrangements consisted of: Pink Ranunculus, Queen Anne’s lace (chocolate brown), Fenestra, seeded eucalyptus, white & pink carnations, Rose Venela cream, assortment of light garden roses, and blue thistle.
There is a true beauty to wedding style that is all about gorgeous bridal fashion, chic wedding details and elegant design choices that really inspires. Such is the case with today’s hauntingly romantic workshop from Ohio wedding photographer DiBlasio Photography. Set with a focus of putting together an elevated hip wedding, the styled shoot transforms the ballroom at the Double Tree Suites by Hilton Hotel Columbus Downtown with a few key stylish choices. From the top down, the workshop is set into chic motion by way of the bridal fashion. A stunning wedding dress from B.Loved Bridal, flowing bridesmaid dress in soft floral pattern from La Jeune Mariee Bridesmaids and a smart suit from Pursuit set the perfect tone. To elevate the hip wedding from a design standpoint, beautifully towing the line between stylish & minimalist, an organic palette of natural orange and deep greens were complimented with an ivory backdrop and pops of turquoise. A simple three tier place setting was accented by hand written wood place cards, while kumquats and oranges injected an organic spirit. Whether you after hip wedding style or simply craving a way to transform a space, starting with savvy bridal fashion is an easy way to find your weddings dream design rhythm.
Pure Texas bliss is the best way to sum up Heidi and Ethan’s dreamy little Belton Texas wedding. Every detail was chosen to evoke an elevated sense of Texas romance, from the farm wood reception tables set with vintage chairs and china to the neatly folded napkins, each accented by a rosemary clipping to greet the guests. Mercury glass candles dotted the room providing the perfect romantic setting, while a bountiful statement floral suspended centerpiece swayed over the sweetheart table. Matching in floral awe, the couple’s ceremony arch was accented by generous blooms in a gorgeous asymmetrical design that was as stunning as it was stately. To capture the southwest spirit of a Texas wedding, the groom’s cake, a simple white buttercream treat baked by the Heidi’s 86 year old grandmother, was topped with 2 cactus hearts, hand selected by the groom, paired with donut towers, the groom’s favorite! The dreamy elevated feel to this Texas wedding makes for a chic blush colored wedding day, one I know many will love!
Infused by a vibrant jewel tone color palette, this spirit of equestrian wedding is nestled into the forest at Chapel in the Woods. From ceremony to reception, there is an element of whimsy that carries through the day starting with the dark wood dual door entryway that seemingly floats between the trees for the perfection ceremony backdrop. A special touch is the potted ferns that line the aisle capitalizing on their forest locale vibe. For the equestrian wedding reception, a table is set within the stables, while horses take in the affair. A mix of fuchsia, purple and turquoise bring the table to life in the form of details like generous blooms and linens. A favorite touch of ours are the horse figurine escort cards that welcome guests, the perfect playful equestrian wedding touch! Whether end of summer or early spring, the mix of bold palette, wooded locale and elevated wedding details make for the perfect mix!
Having just styled a chemistry wedding myself, my ears perked up a bit extra when this geology wedding hit my inbox! Pretty weddings are pretty, but there really is something to be said for those that have a unique vision and are articulated in such a meaningful and beautiful way! Inspired by the bride who cringes at lace and feels more at home with dirt under her french manicured nails, D.Lillian Photography put together what she calls The Geologist’s Guide To Highway 1. The intimate and small setting was crafted with those in mind that love nature. Filled with delightful wedding decor that celebrates a geology wedding, details like a field guide book, camping lanterns, geodes, and potters plates add the perfect touches. In lieu of a traditional dessert display, our bride simply pops open her Outback, showcasing delicious treats upon her textbooks and supplies. The beauty to this geology wedding is that it celebrates something outside the wedding norm, all while proving to be equally as stylish and beautiful.
