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

We can’t resist a good color story and the greens in this Tuscan Dream inspiration shoot from Save The Date are making us swoon. Set at Villa DiGeggiano with it’s endless hills and lands, richly showered in sun light, the shoot is the best of old-world Italy in it’s fall olive harvesting season. Colored with olive green, mustard, white and cream colors, details like stationery by Preta Papier, florals by Tulipano Decor and dining al fresco feel simultaneously fresh and timeless. Purple Tree Photography was on hand to capture all the Tuscan-sun-kissed details and we’re thrilled to share them with you today.

Walls made of flowers, arrangements as extravagant as they come, a custom moss aisle runner as earthy as it is luxurious, silk ribbons and velvet in hand-dyed colors—the details in today’s shoot make for an aesthetic that’s lush, layered, and intriguing all at once. Francine Ribeau Events designed the over-the-top garden party details in a sophisticated, eye-popping palette—pink and peach florals by BLOOMS by Breesa Lee play perfectly against dusty blue ties and textiles, while pops of orange and gold add a little something light and bright to this summer garden affair. Rochelle Cheever was behind the lens at Rancho Valencia capturing it all—from the shoes to the hot air ballon!

Is fall seriously just around the corner?? This farm to table inspiration shoot definitely gets us excited for those autumnal vibes with it’s color palette rich in mustard yellow, cream, pink and orange. Planner and stylist Leigh and Mitchell foraged ferns to create the sculptural floral installation hanging above the dining table and incorporated organic vegetables like turnips in the centerpieces. The mood is light, airy and modern with stationery by Euni + Co. and baked goods by Bakery Nouveau. Captured on film in Catie Coyle Photography‘s signature style, the over look is delightful and has us excited for the beauty of fall weddings.

We LOVE Bella Belle bridal shoes and the launch of their latest collection does not disappoint. Fittingly titled Euphoria, the new line—designed once again by Joy Proctor—evokes the essence of happiness with abundant soft textures, floral embroidery and speckles of sequins. To compliment the collection, the powerhouse team including Tulipina and  Gabrielle Hurwitz, styled this stunning editorial filled with warm, happy colors in lush floral arrangements, dreamy gowns and textures of the old-world setting at Jardin De Buis. The inspiration is ideal for the feminine romance of modern brides and Laura Gordon Photography‘s signature soft and ethereal captures bring the Euphoria flair to every frame.

The aura of the lookbook is inspired by the euphoric nature of the shoe collection itself. It is intended to serve an edgy and fashion-forward interpretation on a bridal look. Joy Proctor once again lent her impeccable design skills and taste in styling and directing the vision of the pictorial. Laura Gordon’s signature soft and ethereal captures brought the Euphoria flair to every frame. Under Gabrielle Hurwitz’s authoritative fashion styling, ethereal gowns from Le Grebenau, Liz Martinez, and Hayley Paige provided airiness to complement the shoe collection. The inimitable Kiana Underwood of Tulipina created lush floral arrangements and centerpieces that became key backdrops throughout the lookbook. Garden roses, fern, carnation, orchid, and foraged foliage in an array of hues and textures were crafted into delightful components for the lookbook by the floral artist. Thoughtful details such as floral eye lids, a magical floral head piece, and statement-making accessories were used throughout every scene to further enhance the Euphoria theme. Last but not least, the scenic orangerie and greenhouses of Jardin De Buis provided a slice of quaint South of France, captured beautifully on film by Josh Gooden.

The result is truly a representation of the Bella Belle’s celebratory romantic aesthetics and its quest to be a pioneer in redefining bridal shoes.

The grandeur of Hatley Castle and the richness of film photography provided the inspiration for this shoot produced by Shannon Elizabeth Photography. Ornate architecture and the lush greens surrounding the property set the scene while  a meandering peacock simply adds to the ambiance. To add a modern feel, the team focused on simplicity in the details—white garden florals by Thorn & Thistle Flowers, black calligraphy on textured neutral paper by Carli Anna, and an airy Truvelle Bridal gown. It’s a palace wedding for the modern bride and it’s all captured beautifully by Shannon Elizabeth Photography.
