From Erin Kate PhotographySmall pieces of Mexican art are used throughout this inspiration shoot. I wanted to keep the feel elegant and organic. Texture adds interest and is found in the form of lace, ribbon, twine, metal, and linen. The bride’s bouquet includes wild grasses, lavender, straw flowers, aspen leaves, eucalyptus berries, and lambs ear and is wrapped in linen and tied with a ribbon. The groom’s boutonniere is a cluster of straw flowers, grasses, eucalyptus berries on lambs ear and tied with twine and lace.

The couples rings are hung on twine and placed on a moss pillow in a metal heart box. The bride wears a beautiful lace blouse by Catherine Malandrino, a simple linen skirt, and distressed cowboy boots. A lace handkerchief was borrowed from the bride’s grandmother.

A sweet blond hen didn’t want to miss out on the celebration. Guests find their table assignments from a handwritten paper sign and are welcomed at their seat by a small bowl of figs. The wedding cake is wrapped at it’s base with lace ribbon and is adorned by a paper heart banner and a Dia de los Muertos bride and groom. A wooden angel watches over the happy couple and a candle alter is adorned with soft flowers. The bride and groom thank their guests for celebrating their wedding day with a simple “Muchas Gracias”!
