Old World European Romance Wedding Inspiration

This inspiration from Ivy & Stone Photography and Fuse Weddings and Events is a 21st Century fairytale with former Bachelor contestant Michelle Money starring as its princess. Full of romantic touches—like the gorgeous Plum Pretty Sugar robe, pale blue gown, lush flowers and damask La Tavola linens—this photo shoot is fit for a modern princess. But instead of a glass slipper, I’ll take that stunning Opal and diamond ring from Trumpet and Horn. Live happily ever after in the gallery.

From Ivy & Stone PhotographyFor this project, we drew from European inspiration, drawing on various hues of dreamy blue and creamy neutrals. We wanted it to feel like you walked into a beautiful old French chateau, with ivy covered walls and ornate detailing.

We used a misty blue gown from Anne Barge. The gown was absolutely amazing! We even discovered, towards the end of the shoot, that it had pockets:) The hair styling was also french inspired with intricate twists making up the back of the hair. The style was enhanced by a beautiful piece provided by Myra Callan of Twigs and Honey.

We choose a vintage engagement ring by Trumpet and Horn. It was a victorian-aged blue stone and matched perfectly with the dress.

The table-scape was amazing! Covered with blue and cream floral linen and fine china, it felt like you were whisked away to a beautiful European retreat! We choose to use a cream sette garnished with simple draping greens. We also had hand-painted Bride and Groom signs to add a personal touch.

The florals were amazing! We used fresh garden roses in hues of citrus and lavender. The bouquet was of similar design, tied together with beautiful Silk and Willow ribbon.

Plum Pretty Sugar’s bridal robe was a perfect fit to start off any girl’s wedding day! The white silk robe was the perfect touch of feminine and pretty. We paired the robe with a tulle veil from Twigs and Honey. The veil was shoulder length and has different types of textures, which creates a depth to the piece.

The invitation suite was all hand written calligraphy by Karli Noel Caligraphy. It was done in gold lettering with accents of gold leaves. The envelope was a powder blue and had vintage stamps placed on it.

Our beautiful model is Michelle Money, formerly on the bachelor. She was a perfect fit for our romantic shoot!

The team assembled for this shoot was amazing and we hope you love the images as much as we do!

Pretty + Patriotic 4th of July Park City Wedding Inspiration

One of our country’s most beloved songs is “America the Beautiful.” And after seeing this patriotic photo shoot, I think someone should write a song about its beauty. Captured by Breanna McKendrick, this inspiration shoot is fully of lovely details from the gorgeous summery flowers and the handsome Groom’s military uniform to the stunning Park City setting and oversized American flag. See it all here.

Whimsical

From Breanna McKendrickPark City, Utah is known as a destination location for brides and grooms looking to get married deep in the Rocky Mountains surrounded by world class ski resorts and rich trees. But few people know that the charming farms and ranches tucked away in these resort mountains have a sturdy southern feel, even if they are so far away from the south. This styled session resembled everything patriotic, with the Groom in his Army Formals, the Bride in a blushing rose and lace wedding gown and the charming Whitewashed barn tucked into the mountains.

Austin and Michelle are married with a darling little girl. Austin is currently serving our country in the Army and gearing up for his first deployment, which means leaving Michelle and his little girl behind for a few months. The whitewashed barn of McPoulin farms gets gets dressed with a large American Flag each year which resonated with Austin’s Military uniform and patriotic theme. Michelle wore a classic blush pink tulle ballgown with ivory lace designed by Allure Bridal. Her bouquet echoed the reds of her gown and red lip in addition to the yellows of her Groom’s military stripe and details of his Army Formal uniform.

The military is a part of so many couple’s wedding day stories and can have patriotic themes tied into their wedding day portraits with class, elegance and without being too literal to a color pallet of Red, White, and Blue. This shoot is a wonderful example to classic military that echoes with a southern, elegant heart.

Sounds idyllic, right? Jacquelyn Hayward did a fabulous job capturing every picturesque moment, so get ready to gush over the full gallery right here!

From Jacquelyn HaywardMegan and Scott were married on a beautiful April morning in Provo – the town where they grew up, went to high school, and met one another.  The sun was shy and drifted behind rain clouds that sprinkled softly here and there throughout the day.  Megan’s dress was handmade by Scott’s grandmother.  Megan’s gown of silk was fit it to her frame piece-by-piece, then adorned with beading.  Their reception was held at her Aunt’s house (who is also the mother of Scott’s best friend!) just up the hill from the temple.  The reception decorations were simple and understated, allowing the Spring blooms to steal the show.  Gourmet pizza from a food truck was served, and harp music danced it’s tune around the backyard where friends and family gathered to support their marriage.  It was such a lovely day!

From the beautiful bride…Scott and I began a friendship in high school that had something undeniably special about it.  At first it was strictly friendly.  No hand-holding or romance began for a long while.  After high school he went away for two years to serve in Germany as a missionary.  I went to school and had my own missionary experience in Argentina.  All the while we kept in touch through letters.  When he finally popped the question I cried, kissed him sweetly, and said, “Of course.”  We wanted our wedding to be simple and beautiful.  We arranged for an outdoor reception with a gorgeous view of the valley and Utah lake.  It would be a white wedding, with splashes of color from the flowers and a blush fabric wall.  What we wanted most for our wedding day was the focus to be placed on our union and families coming together.  We still feel so uplifted and happy and supported by our loved ones.
