Whimsical Bridal Portraits from Julie Anne, Wedding Photographer

I think we can all agree that bridal sessions are all sorts of awesome.  I mean, an entire day dedicated to frolicking around the countryside (or beach or city) wearing your Big Day duds and capturing every moment in beautiful imagery?  That’s what we call the best day ever, and when it’s a gorgeous sesh like this one captured by Julie Anne, Wedding Photographer, well… seriously amazing.  See it all right here in the full gallery.

From Julie Anne, Wedding Photographer Lauren is a professional dressage and eventing instructor and owns Bigtime Eventing in Alpharetta, Georgia. Her dream was to have her bridal portraits with her horses and her dog Punch at Wilson Farm where Bigtime is headquartered. To make it extra special, I brought in Flowers by Holland and Posh Hair by Lindsay. The shoot was designed to highlight Lauren’s natural beauty and her whimsical Nicole Miller gown. We chose a fall color palette that matched well with Lauren’s brown hair. We decided to give Lauren two different looks – one for each horse! We even decorated the horses and pup to make them look dressed up! I believe all women should have a portrait session as lovely as this when they get married!

From Chancey Charm WeddingsWe had a lovely time working together on this shoot. It’s one of those situations where you feel like you’re throwing a party with close friends. Everyone working on this was completely committed to its success and had a positive attitude during the entire process, even day-of with 30 mph winds.

As a designer, I always take pride in sketching out fresh concepts for my inspired shoots and clients. I then take the vision I’ve sketched to other industry professionals for detail specifications and execution. I knew that I wanted to create a ceremony scene to highlight The Berkshire House’s gorgeous backdrop of rolling hills, miles of dark brown fences and charming weathered barn. I came up with a romantic, vintage concept of an arch backdrop filled with ribbons for the bride and groom to recite their vows in front of. I presented the concept of the ribbon-laden arch to the amazing ladies at Stylish Stems, and they took off with it! They really brought the concept to life in a way I couldn’t have dreamed of.  They incorporated lace into the arch, which we coordinated with the dress and overlay on the cake table that I personally picked out at Lewis and Sheron Textile Co. in Atlanta. Stylish Stems suggested that we bring in a chandelier over the cake table. I instantly feel in love with the idea. Event Rentals Unlimited was more than happy to provide rentals for the shoot, and the ladies at Vintage Vogue Event Rentals provided a gorgeous mercury glass cake stand for the ruffled cake, lovingly made by Eileen Carter of Eileen Carter Creations. The handmade details of custom-made earrings and a bow tie that coordinated with the ribbon sealed the feel for an adorable couple, who graciously provided us with their evening. Gisele of Happy Kiss Photography brought the shoot to life with unique angles and images full of detail and romance.

From Laura Birney EventsChurch pews in a field? Chandeliers hanging in a rustic pavilion? Sign me up! This wedding had all the elements of a perfect event and, oh, the fabulous details! Christina and Dan envisioned a vintage, rustic affair, and Chukkar Farm was a beyond perfect backdrop. For the ceremony, guests sat in church pews set in an open field. The altar was decorated with a vintage, four-pane window set adorned with hanging vases of beautiful blooms. A dear friend of the couple, Dwight Haymon, delivered a beautiful and touching ceremony.

Guests then made their way up to the farm’s pavilion area for the reception, and there was no detail left undone! Christina is an artist and a graphic designer, and she custom-made the invitations and all the beautiful paper products. She tied everything together perfectly, from the seating chart placed on vintage window panes to the table numbers to the hand-painted welcome signs. The pavilion was decorated to perfection with chandeliers, burlap and beautiful drapery. We used a variation of round and long tables and dressed them with clean, white linens. Christina provided a variety vintage bottles, vases and bowls that were set atop burlap squares. They were filled with beautiful blooms of ranunculus, anemones, godetia and astible in shades of pink, peach, coral and ivory.

Christina and Dan served amazing Korean and Thai food, which was delicious! The meal was complete with yummy vanilla and chocolate cupcakes for dessert. The guests partied on the dance floor and took pictures in the DIY photo booth until the couple’s grand exit through a sea of sparklers. The evening was filled with joy, laughter and lots and lots of love for this beautiful couple.
