Yesterday we featured Part One of this gorgeous Cinco de Mayo inspired style shoot. Today, in part two, we see more of a rustic, natural style. The model wore three separate dresses for this part of this shoot. We love the relaxed, but utterly romantic feel of this inspiration. Again, a huge thank you to Melissa McCrotty Photography, and the vendor team who pulled this together, for sharing!

Ralph Lauren Inspired Style Shoot

Posted by Jeffra on Jan 17, 2012

About this Shoot: “The warm glow of the fall season was the perfect time for a Ralph Lauren Inspired wedding style shoot with antique decor accents and a pretty collection of flowers.  Our insanely talented friends at Rowell Photography captured the details perfectly! The decor and flowers are a perfect blend of ‘where the rustic meets the refined’! My very own mother’s bone china graced the table top and was accented with old brown bottles used once upon a time for medicines, oils and other home remedies. Flower collections of yellow and cream peonies accented with blue thistles reflected wedding flowers of times past.  Grouped together, these combinations, created centerpieces that looked both rustic and refined for a Ralph Lauren inspired wedding.” ~ Rachel, of Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design.

Outdoor Rustic, Vintage California Wedding

Posted by Jeffra on Dec 07, 2011

Keeley & Derek

August 2011

Piru, California

I have to apologize for how long this post is, but this is just one of those weddings where I couldn’t leave out any of the details. Each centerpiece is unique, every couple shot is breathtaking, the florals are out of this world, and the tiny details, which are too many to name, are beyond gorgeous!  Some of them I have to mention like, the local organic produce area on the buffet, the shabby chic sitting area, and the adorable favors which were marked, “Your Presence was Key”…

BOHO Style Shoot Wedding Inspiration

Posted by Jeffra on Oct 05, 2011

We recently featured the Glam style shoot by this group of very talented Wedding Vendors. If you missed it, check it out here: Modern Retro Wedding Inspiration Shoot. I was really excited to feature part II of their style shoot inspiration because this BOHO design is fabulous and such a popular trend right now. This style is not for everyone, but if you’re doing a more low-key wedding and want it to resemble something out of the 60′s with a modern day twist, this is for you. The concept of dull tones with vibrant hues is a classic combination, but when you mix it with vintage gowns, and relaxed groom attire you get a completely unique style, and one that you could undoubtedly make your own. A big thanks to the Entwined 2012 vendors for sharing this with us!
