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

We’re kicking off this holiday week with a festive editorial at Pursell Farms from Davy Whitener and Mariee Ami . The colors and details were inspired by a painting of a pheasant—the richness of the teal blue paired with burgundy, rust and different shades of brown creating the perfect fall palette. The juxtaposition of the rustic details paired with the refined elements made for the perfect combination of sophistication and southern charm. Florals are by Alchemy Event Studio and floral adorned cake by Barb’s Cake with paper by Mariee Ami.

This European-inspired shoot brought a little bit of Tuscany to Santa Ynez, California. With its limestone architecture, terracotta tiled roof, and sprawling vineyards and olive trees, Sunstone Vineyards and Winery was the perfect setting to evoke that Old-World Tuscan feel. Stylist and planner Lacy Geary incorporated designs with lots of texture with a neutral, yet rich, color palette. Plume Calligraphy introduced the look with layered, hand-touched designs and Idlewild Flora created artistic and organic designs using dried elements for the staircase and lush floral arrangements for the tablescape and bouquet. The high fashion styling and textural, romantic details are the epitome of the modern bride and all the inspiration is captured to perfection by the incredible Lynn Dunston.

Courtney Pino of Loblolly Farm designed this editorial to highlight how couples can incorporate their cultural heritage into their event design. To celebrate a Mexican/American heritage, Courtney styled with bright colors and let her floral design take the lead. Seasonal, early summer blooms of dahlia, garden rose, peony, cosmos and zinnia, steal the show in their stunning bold, summer palette. Traditional patterns, prints and bold colors brought out the essence of the American Southwest and its Mexican influence. The vibrance of the terra-cotta orange with pops of rich blues stuns in the invitations byWith Wild and Grace and on the tabletop. Photographer Kim Branagan capture all the details (including some pretty fab bridal accessories) in these fun, film images.

The team behind this Earthy French Countryside shoot at The Farm at South Mountain was inspired by the quaint countryside in rural France. Paper and calligraphy by Shotgunning for Love Letters introducing the mood with soft neutrals and timeless design. Array Designs add feminine flair with a voluptuous, white bridal bouquet that perfectly compliments the vintage-inspired lace Anna Campbell gown.  The Confetti Studio designed a table filled with greens and textured fabric, paired with tall candles complimented by the nearby farm-grown charcuterie and dessert table is nearby. Lucky for us, the team enlisted the skills of Saje Photography to capture all the details in these lovely images.

Design team Paper & Moon found inspiration for this shoot from their trips to Marrakesh where they fell in love with the colors, textures and energy. Drawing upon the juxtaposition of an earthy terracotta palette and bright jewel tone the team kept the Moroccan-inspired atmosphere casual and intimate by using traditional poufs and Persian rugs. The airy, industrial setting of Chocolate Factory contrasted perfectly with the romantic and vibrant florals by The Informal Florist, artistic cake by Cove Cake Design and layers of soft textiles and mixed metallics in the tablescape. The laid-back, cozy and boho vibes feel so right, right now and we love the way it’s all captured in these images by Studio Brown.
