I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

For this Little Sahara, UT (Sand Dunes) shoot, the creators / visionaries chose to simulate the Utah desert sunset with soft neutral hues of yellow, blush, orange and red with the florals as a stark contrast in the unadorned desert setting. Ambra from Query Events about the stunning model and her dress: “We paired our dark haired model with the Bainbridge Alexandra Grecco gown with tons of movement and a slit for days.” Query Events skillfully planned, designed, and arranged the florals in this gorgeous shoot, and aren’t we incredibly lucky that Callie Manion Photography was there to capture every perfect detail? We think it’s amazing, and we think you will too.

Inspired by the desert landscape, a team of Texas vendors made the trip to the gorgeous sand dunes of Little Sahara right outside of Salt Lake City. Designer Ambra Costner-Portillo of Query Events used a neutral color story with floral arrangements meant to mimic the sunset – butter yellows, soft oranges, blush and red.

 

Keeping all textures and elements as true to the existing landscape as possible, meant for a story that looks at home together. We knew we wanted a minimalist dress with zero “fuss” to really showcase how gorgeous our native Salt Lake City model is – a true desert girl!

 

 

You can just feel the desert wind in these photos! We love the location and the variation in landscape – everything came together just beautifully!

We’re swooning over this amazing indoor wedding inspiration captured by photographer and host Rachel Solomon, and planning, styling and florals by Amber Reverie. The natural light in The Loft Studio Lehi is the perfect setting to highlight the natural hues of gently aging silver, and deep color palette of the hellebore, tinted ranunculus, sweet pea, lilac and juniper that were used in this shoot. Kelsey Malie Calligraphy created the most gorgeous invitations; simple, elegant, timeless; evidence that your stationery can be one of the key elements in the collective beauty of the whole picture.

Influenced by the natural patina of antique silver, this indoor wedding design was curated using elements that manifest the organic beauty that special objects develop over time. As metals age, they take on an iridescent quality with tones of sepia, purple and subtle teal. This palette was reflected in the deep pigments of the flowers. Tender spring blooms like hellebore, tinted ranunculus and sweet pea, and fragrant lilac were paired with sculptural branches and rugged juniper.

 

 

Bathed in subdued window light, we kept the design elements surrounding our real couple few and significant, allowing their love and natural chemistry to shine through. The bride was draped in a billowing silk shift, adorned simply with a striking brown diamond ring. Together, they nestled comfortably into a natural nook, created with clusters of juniper and foraged bits.

 

 

Heirloom elements, including classical wax seals on handmade paper, spools of softest silk, a homemade pavlova wedding cake and an antique wedding crown of tiny waxed flowers, further communicated the depth of their commitment.

We think you’ll agree that the vision to combine vivid floral hues with the blue tones of the California beach is a winning combination in this colorful coastal inspiration shoot by Perfect The Event. The floral arbor by Three Petals Floral & Event Design is an absolute show-stopper, and the perfect “altar” for exchanging vows on the beachfront. The historic Ole Hanson Beach Club offers panoramic views of an expansive lawn and the Pacific Ocean’s softly crashing waves. And Lovisa Photo was there to capture every gorgeous detail of this stunning shoot.

This look was inspired by the ocean waves crashing gently along the beach and the beautiful floral that lines the coast. Between the divine blue tones of the water, and the vibrant hues of the flowers, it only made sense to celebrate the two. Having a colorful oceanfront wedding inspiration shoot meant using bright and warm toned florals, and incorporating the water with pops of cool colors in the textiles and smaller details such as our paper goods from Jen Simpson Designs.

Ole Hanson Beach Club was the perfect venue to host this California coastal dream. Since touches of glam were incorporated we needed our bridal gown to be both flowing like the foamy waves, but also have touches of bling to pair well with the details. Casablanca Bridal had the most stunning gown for our bride, and Friar Tux’s tan suit was the perfect compliment.

The design mixes in metals such as our rose gold laser cut items from Happily Ever Etched to contrast against the Spanish villa feel of the venue. Whimsical floral are featured throughout and the white hanging roses from Three Petals are intended to imitate the fluffy clouds over the horizon. Love Cakes took this fluffy feel into one of their layers, and the colors of the floral into a watercolor design for the bottom tier.

This shoot could of not been a success without such a talented team in place. Corin Cruz made our bride glow, and Baker Party Rentals supplied such an array of mixed matched wood tones that everything tied in so well. This day was captured to perfection by the infamous Lovisa Photo and Cloud 9 Cinematography. Inspiration for the oceanfront wedding couples for days!

The contrast of stark industrial space with softly flowing water colors, as well as copper and burgundy, is magnificent in this styled shoot by Infinite Events. Between the stunning florals by Stoneblossom and the classic vintage china from Borrowed Blue, you can’t help but be inspired by mixing textures and styles to transform an unadorned space into a dreamy event bursting with color and unique expression. Adeline & Grace was there to capture every gorgeous detail.

From the planner: I wanted to bring in the industrial look with metals and copper and soften it with the water colors. I chose serenity, blush and some burgundy. We had a water colored dress (it was fabulous and so fitting!) I also had our place cards made in copper wire and copper mugs to tie in the metals along with a geometric placemat. I made sure that anywhere you looked on the table or on the bookshelves, you would see something different and unique.

The inspiration for this gorgeous Spanish styled shoot began with the colonial elements of the venue, Yas Links, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The exquisite tablescapes and styling of The Purple Chair, the romantic and loosely draped florals by Volet, and beautiful photography by Maria Sundin all worked together to create a couple’s dream wedding on the shores of the Mediterranean. The quiet elegance of this shoot is breathtaking.

From the Purple Chair: Our couple were dressed with both an ethereal and powerful style; we wanted to reflect them as quiet individuals and also empower them in their relationship, fortified by their love for one another. We love the pictures of the bride softly getting ready, full of butterflies and excitement in the morning combined with the joyful strength that resounds when she is with her husband. He on the other hand is calm and reflective in the quieter moments before the ceremony. 

  The old colonial architecture of this Abu Dhabi location sparked an immediate vision of Spain for us and we wanted to reflect that feeling throughout this shoot. Not many venues can transport you back to Europe so vividly and this is where our inspiration began.

We instantly fell in love with the tactile elements of this venue and it was such a pleasure to entwine them into our narrative; the black cast iron chairs and silky smooth stone were all engulfed into the vision. We draped the venue with untamed florals and they remained beautifully dramatic against the simple lines and archways of our location.

Drawing upon the terracotta hues of the Mediterranean we wanted the table to have an effortless yet polished look. Simple details here ensured that the overall look was elegant and reflected our Spanish inspiration.
