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

We are obsessed with the romance of this shoot. The lace. The “letter in a bottle” calligraphy (can someone please do this for their invite??? Genius!). The paper suite. The simple florals. We’re inviting you into our dreams today, courtesy of Kyle John Photography.

As promised, part two of the Moda e Arte Workshop shot by Sandra Aberg and styled by Joy Proctor Design is just as breathtaking as we promised. You head here to see our first feature of this once-in-a-lifetime workshop experience that took place in Italy along the Amalfi Coast. We thought we’d let stylist Joy Proctor tell you all about the scene, so read on below.

From Joy:

Our bridal editorial was inspired by the juxtaposition of the delicate spring blooms and the aged patina of the historic Italian churches. I chose a color palate that reflected that look, ochre, cream and hints of blush pink. The beautiful calligraphy by Abany of Brown Paper Linen was done on tea stained cotton paper, and mimicked the aged look of the church exterior. I chose an intricate stoneware plate, set atop La Tavola Linens Tuscany Mud tablecloth, which was another sweet homage to the historic location. The bride wore a beautiful gown by Jesper Hovering, which was the perfect combination of classic sophistication and feminine chic. The intricate veil by Jannie Baltzer was the most important piece of the bridal look, which added a staple of the traditional bridal look, in a modern and fashionable way.

You guys. This lakeside engagement session by Michael Radford Photography is just beyond romantic. Not only because of the killer backdrop, but also because it’s paired with florals by Art With Nature who has fast become one of our absolute faves. Don’t you just love the moody vibe of the darker flowers and suit, paired with all that gorg light? We thought you would.

But for now, let’s check out some of the gorgeousness that was shot by Sandra Aberg (and I promise…there’s more to come!)

The 4-1-1 from designer, Joy Proctor:

The terraced hills above the Amalfi Coast are home to some of the most incredible gardens and orchards. Most famously known for its lemons, and thus, its limoncello, I thought it only fitting to design a look that paid homage to this beautiful fruit. Preparing for her wedding, we followed a bride as she gathered lemons for her Mother and sister to prepare. She led the donkey through town before going to church.
