Ethereal Countryside Wedding Inspiration

A composition of ethereal gowns and gorgeous backdrops is a show-stopping combo, but add in André Teixeira, Brancoprata behind the vision and you’ve got yourself one out of this world editorial. I’m talking gorgeous T Bakes treats and organic details that’ll draw you in, because this gallery is one that’ll have you pinning for days.

From Sofia Ferreira at BrancoprataT he inspiration behind this ethereal wedding editorial came from the beautiful venue, Convento de Sanpayo, located in the North of Portugal, very close to Spain.

Inspired by the quiet moments before the ceremony, we set out to curate a serene environment by creating a main character, Ana, the bride that has an extremely sense of insight and appreciation of family traditions.

The color palette was inspired by the surrounding landscapes, the richness of deep blues and greens, paired with soft, luminous shades of white.

We wanted the design to feel immensely light and airy while remaining timeless and elegant! The wedding dress designed exclusively for this shoot explored the beauty of simplicity and the importance of family heirlooms.

Lush florals with a variety of textures helped us achieve an even more natural look to the table setting. Even the sugar flowers on top of the beautiful wedding cake look real!

From Clary Pfeiffer PhotographyAlyse and Dimitry got married this April in St. Louis, Missouri. The couple was so relaxed and ready to enjoy the day with their family and friends who traveled from all over to celebrate with them. Alyse was stunning in her Jenny Packham dress with elegant draping and soft and beautiful hair and makeup. Every detail of the wedding day was timeless and classic – from the attire to the venue to the amazing spring florals – each were perfect compliments to create this romantic affair for the couple and their friends to enjoy.

Something Blue Event with Tiffany & Co. Recap

We were just a tad bit excited last week when announcing an event we were co-hosting with Tiffany & Co., and let me tell you, it was even more fab than I’d expected. We got to sip bubbly, snack on yummy treats + chat diamonds with Tiffany Chief Gemologist, Melvyn Kirtley. Sound perfect? Well that’s because it was. If you didn’t get the chance to attend, you’ll want to take a second to relive it all through these gorgeous photos.

Held at the iconic Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue in NYC, I got to meet some of our lovely SMP readers and got the chance to try on a stunning sparkler or two. Not to mention, I learned more than I thought possible about diamonds — the 4C’s, how to pick the best diamond for YOU and some fun facts about Tiffany & Co. My favorite tidbit? Charles Tiffany invented the four prong setting for diamond rings to ensure the diamond was given proper attention front and center (as opposed to having it lay inside the band as it was before he came along). How cool is that?
