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

The inspiration for this gorgeous shoot came originally from the Anna Marguerite Couture headpieces which felt “Greek-esque” in their design. The team wanted to expand on the theme by bringing in a beautiful and majestic white horse, incorporating the Greek goddess Epona known as protector of horses. The collaboration of this team including the stunning florals by Holly Viles Design and planning by Olive & Nine, they bring just the right element to help create the romantic vibe to this shoot. And lucky for us Lauren Brandon Photography was there to skillfully capture every perfect moment.

This shoot was inspired originally by the beautiful Anna Marguerite headpieces in a dainty entwined olive branch pattern. We felt like these looked a bit “greek-esque” and wanted to expand on this theme. Epona is the Greek goddess and protector of horses, renowned for her fertility and sensuality. She rides a white mare as Epona is known as the “Great Mare” and is adorned in crowns and roses. So we wanted to incorporate touches of Greek elements you can see in the blue ribbons, the stone vessel, the white horse, roses and olive branch headpieces. And we just went from there, with a beautiful garden elopement fit for a goddess.

The subtle themes of Greek culture are entwined with a beautiful mix of light and lux elements. The couple is a real couple and is so in love, it was difficult to get them to look away from each other between shots! They met and fell in love from opposite sides of the county and were inseparable immediately.

Lastly, the horse used in this shoot is from the sweetest older couple who are known for breeding beautiful Arabian horses here in Texas. This is their oldest mare, and their first baby on the farm. They were hoping that she would produce a line of horses with her beautiful white color, however, after 20 years, she never had a white foal, making her the one and only. The only white horse is actually the “Great Mare” that is Epona’s namesake.

‘Tis the season…for creative holiday color combos. We’re always game for a new palette that celebrates all the joy of the season while still feeling fresh. Cue this snowy inspiration shoot designed and produced by the team at Seventh Stem. The shoot is set in the winter wonderland of Mt. Hood National Forest and combines details in pale blush and deep emerald greens with touches of rose gold and furry textures. We’re loving the romantic, feminine bouquet and the knockout wreath all by Seventh Stem.  Lucky for us, Angela Shae Photography was on hand in the snow drifts to capture all the beautiful details.

I truly believe that the feel and style of this shoot is something any couple can incorporate into their winter wedding. This winter inspiration shoot really puts a new and different spin on a winter wedding. The color palette alone is really refreshing and not something you’d see at a typical winter-wonderland wedding. Emerald green paired with peach, cream, nude and a crowd favorite–rose gold, set the ambiance of elegance, poise and whimsy.

Wow, where to start with this gorgeous Mediterranean shoot?! The stunning images were taken by Nicole Lapierre Photography while she was attending the Boheme Workshop in British Columbia, hosted by Vasia Han Photography. The beautifully rustic venue, ​Gods Mountain Estate needed little embellishment, but White Event Studio transformed the space into a dream destination wedding with ​Celsia Floral adding the elegant floral design in the tablescapes and a bridal bouquet to die for. We’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do.

From Nicole LaPierre: The inspiration for this collection was to bring a destination feel to a bride’s local area and keeping things elegant, yet attainable. Destination weddings can often seem logistically daunting for many couples, but it is nice to find unique venues close to home, that have a look of another place, and where you can host beautiful, family style Al Fresco dinners for your reception. This will keep your guests engaged and intrigued by the beauty.

If you want a change from the traditional wedding festivities, you need to check out this bridal brunch inspiration shoot at the rustic White Sparrow Barn in Texas. Olive and Nine designed an elegantly casual atmosphere for the bridal party, who sat at a low table with colorful vintage place settings and and abundance of giant pillows and poufs. With the gentle hues of the flowers and a romantic floral crown for the bride, Blushing Blooms completed the vision for a lovely laid-back brunch for the bride and her maids. We know you’re going to LOVE this gallery of images by the most talented Katie Lamb.

The inspiration behind the shoot revolved around a bridal brunch for the modern and yet laid-back bride who values friendship and community. We utilized mauves, peaches, and organic hues, while throwing in a little bit of bold with the deep plum and sweet yellow tones.

The short, Moroccan table created a space where the bride and her maids could relax, laugh freely with one another, and enjoy friendship. The pillows and layered rugs with cowhide and woven pieces assisted in adding texture and the flare of the bride’s personality.

Vintage table pieces hinted at the bride-to-be’s forever, while the soft and delicate florals whispered new beginnings. Her peacock chair and wicker lounge area helped to bring the space alive with the touches of greenery and leathered poufs.
