    Of all the different styles one could put together when it comes to wedding design, a true favorite for me is rustic elegance. It is also, in my opinion, one that isn’t the easiest to pull off. As a rule, to craft a wedding like this, you need to start with an elegant wedding style as a foundation much the way TeamWedding, and The Bride Link have done. To then massage in rustic wedding décor, you need to understand the nuances that make it so, allowing that to guide your décor selections. Simply opting for a wood table isn’t quite enough. Choose the wrong one and it looks more ragged than sophisticated. French country style does an unbelievably gorgeous job of crafting rustic elegance. Polished, yet gently worn, natural and wholesome all while encompassing regal perfection, much the way the natural wood table and modern black plates from All Occasion Tent & Party Rentals do. Location is key, you can almost never have any sort of an elegant wedding without a venue that first exudes elegance, much like the one here at the incredible Candoro Marble Factory. Then there is the fashion, it’s pretty impossible to have an elegant wedding without stunning wedding attire choices that drip in style like the Gilded Gown and Regal Tuxedo showcased here. Driving this dreamy rustic elegant wedding home is the artful eye...

    Boudoir is often thought of in only one way…. lingerie clad and overly sexy.  There are, in fact, many other stunning & wonderful interpretations of boudoir, not all in lingerie either.  Today’s styled shoot from wedding photographer Vanessa Hicks Photography rides a gorgeous line between Hawaiian boudoir meets sunrise bridal session.  No matter which you decide to color with, it’s a delicious treat.  Starting at 4am, (4am!) Vanessa headed out with model Leslie to the rocky shores of Makapuu Beach, armed with a lush tropical flower crown & rose adorned veil courtesy of florist Creative Concepts by Jeff .  The duo found the most amazing locale for this Hawaiian boudoir meets bridals, a locale forged of volcanic earth, carved out by the mighty pacific. While some models might not have been up for the cold, wind, & getting wet by the waves, Leslie delivered in so many ways.  Wearing a simple, classic white one piece swimsuit, the pairing of the floral crown and cathedral length veil take us into an ethereal world drenched in yummy golden hues.  Leslie is one of the rare ones, able to render you spellbound by her direct to camera eyes the very same way she is able to with her megawatt smile...

    Not everyone craves a cookie cutter wedding, nor should they.  The stylish fashion forward bride is probably my absolute favorite.  Color, is nothing to her but a vehicle for style.  Black, white, fuchsia, they are all equal, what matters is how evocative one feels over another given its overall design.  For those leaning toward a more moody & mysterious wedding style, something like this Gothic chic Utah wedding hits on all the right levels.  With a hearty focus on wedding fashion, this sophisticated formal exudes atmospheric perfection.  All starting with a black wedding dress from Bling It On Dress Rentals, details like sheer long sleeves accented by hand beaded detailing and a cafe au lait underlay are the touches that elevate & add intrigue.  Dialing up the brooding romance allure, a bridal up-do just the right balance of undone polish, plays a heavy hand into the romance factor.  The rest of this dark & dreamy Utah wedding is the sweeping landscapes that is Antelope Island, captured with beauty by wedding photographer Ashley Smith Photography.
