Romantic Art Inspired Wedding Shoot

I love when art inspires weddings. Art inspires fashion all the time, but rarely do we hear about a particular artist’s impact on a couple’s wedding style. But this shoot – inspired by Gustav Klimt - is proof that art can translate into weddings in a way that feels beautiful and utterly unique. Designed by Beau Tied Events with photographs by Sarah McKenzie, there is even more here in the galleries.

Winter

From Beau Tied Events… I’ve always been a fan of Gustav Klimt’s paintings–warm, romantic, whimsical–exactly the kind of emotion I want to evoke when designing weddings for my clients. I thought of the idea to use Klimt’s paintings as inspiration for my next shoot–utilizing his love of mixing warm hues like golds, reds, and auburn with mixed textiles and patterns. When I mentioned the idea to Sarah McKenzie, she jumped at the idea, and together we got other vendors on board. Rent Some Vintage provided the perfect eclectic boho pieces for the shoot. BHLDN lent us some flawy, whimsical dresses from their new collection, which Adorne Artistry then completed the goddess transformation through their amazing hair and makeup application. Tamara Menges Designs nailed the florals– sprinkling red anemones throughout the day, while Rachel Nieman provided the perfect stationery to compliment the theme. This styled shoot was used as a learning tool for attendee’s of the Develop Retreat for Photographers.

Traditional Country Club Wedding

I may have mentioned a time or two that no one does rustic chic quite like the state of Texas, but did you also know that they have quite the handle on traditional affairs, as well?  Yep, The Lone Star State is basically made for classic nuptials and when you throw in the talents of Keely Thorne EventsEvents In Bloom and Nancy Aidée, it takes it to entirely new level of awesome.  Bask in the pretty right here.

And a sweet film from The McKellars

From Keely Thorne Events… What do a Southern couple living in New York require for an unforgettable wedding? Just your typical Texas soiree filled to the brim with details, charm, and of course Southern hospitality! Caroline knew from the beginning that she wanted a soft, romantic wedding with a few modern twists on her traditional style and that is exactly what she received! The wedding weekend started with a a bridal luncheon at the Houston staple, Brennan’s of Houston, and a surprise shopping trip for the bridal party to the Color Bar at Kendra Scott. That same evening guests enjoyed an intimate and heartfelt rehearsal dinner at Ouisie’s Table where a live chalkboard artist detailed seating assignments as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. And the night was not finished yet….a Fiesta Welcome Party was then hosted at the bride’s Aunt and Uncle’s home that went into the wee hours of the morning and where guests enjoyed specialty cocktails and food with Mexican flair along with a mariachi serenade. Phew…and that was just the beginning!

The wedding day was a beautiful, relaxing day building up to an emotional ceremony and P.A.R.T.Y. where the band kept at least 200 people on the dance floor until the very last song! Oh…and one more event! Since the couple had so many friends and family (at least 100 hotel rooms!) that traveled near and far for the couples celebration, the parents of the groom hosted an all-out Sunday brunch for guests that included everything from biscuits and gravy to a ‘grab-and-go’ for those needing to go quickly to the airport. It was truly an unforgettable weekend for an truly unforgettable couple!

How to Assemble a Bouquet

Flowers just so happen to be a favorite of my favorite things, and a good floral DIY is much appreciated where this black-thumbed blogger is concerned, so when Tamara Menges offered up five tips to making the most beautiful bouquet, I was all over it. And then I saw the images from Christa Elyce Photography. You guys, gorgeous Tamara taught her cutie pie husband how to pull a bouquet together, and it’s adorable AND helpful!
