This dress. Just stop for a second and take a look (don’t worry, we’ll wait right here)… from the gorgeous hue to those layers of tulle, it’s pure perfection courtesy of Tara La Tour. Add in the florals from Holly Chapple (seriously stunning) and Elizabeth Fogarty’s pics and we’ve got a treat on our hands. See every lovely angle and romantic moment in our Vault right this way!
From Elizabeth Fogarty… The entire inspiration, from the cake to the invitation came from Tara La Tour’s soft and whimsical gown. We wanted this editorial to have different textures and tones. The bouquet is what makes the shoot so special with its volume and shape. It’s an inspirational piece for brides to step away from the traditional white gown and round bouquet and to embrace new designs.

Russ and Erykah didn’t want the typical wedding day. They wanted a tight-knit celebration surrounded by 15 of their dearest friends and family, so they planned what just might be the prettiest styled elopement ever. Of course, with a dress like Erykah’s you have to have a statement bouquet and headpiece designed by La Fleur Du Jour to match, and our faves Michael and Carina didn’t miss a single second behind the camera. Head to the gallery and see just how chic an elopement can be.

From Michael and Carina Photography…This elopement at the Salamander Resort in Virginia was intimate, stylish, unique and oh so romantic. The bride was rocking a lilac gown, a blueberry bouquet and romantic lace-up shoes. The couple married in a romantic Virginia setting, surrounded by only 15 friends and family. It was so beautiful!
And while it was a unique elopement, nothing was missing at all from this wedding. The calligraphy paper suite, the neatly decorated farm table, and the elegant cake, all made for beautiful accents. Personal pies made a beautiful addition to the wedding cake. This celebration was so special, and I know the trendsetting couple will inspire many brides and grooms-to-be.

Michael and Carina said it best: because we love beautiful florals (thank you Floral and Bloom), dresses (oh Claire!) and calligraphy (Poppy and Scooter has that covered), this bridal inspiration shoot brightens any day! Add in this ethereal lady – and Amie Decker Beauty’s talents – and I’m planning on printing these pics for myself. Only problem: where to start? I’ll be in our Vault as I try to decide…
