This is a shoot I could get lost in all day long. And actually, I might do just that. It’s gorgeous defined. With florals from Plenty Of Petals so pretty they’ll make you squeal, picture perfection stationery from The Left Handed Calligrapher, and dreamy design from Beau & Arrow Events, it’s really hard to go wrong. But when Carmen Santorelli steps behind the camera to capture it all? That’s when we strike inspiration gold. See it all here.

From Carmen Santorelli PhotographyThe idea behind this wedding inspiration shoot came to life in the hopes to show couples that are currently planning their wedding that they can have a wedding with an Italian feel to it without getting married in Italy. We chose Lorimar Winery in Temecula as our location because it has that beautiful European castle look and feel to it, and that set the tone for the entire shoot. The orange orchard next door to the winery made for a stunningly lush backdrop, and despite the rainy and windy weather that day, we managed to show that beauty lies in the details. We couldn’t have chosen a better wardrobe than the absolutely amazing gowns from American Archive, and Thorne Artistry has done their magic, again, by creating some incredible looks. Plenty of Petals left us all impressed with the beautiful colors and textures they chose for the floral designs, and Hey There, Cupcake! created three modern and equally delicious cakes finely decorated with unique wafer paper flowers. The Left Handed Calligrapher put together the delicate stationery with peach and gold lettering, and of course, the ladies behind Beau & Arrow Events made this whole shoot possible. We hope this will bring great inspiration to brides and grooms that are currently planning their big day!
