Wedding Photography by Jessica Claire
April 26, 2010

After an amazing weekend, we are rested, relaxed and coming out of the gates swingning this lovley Monday morning. If you read SMP regularly, you already know that the word obsessed doesn't even scratch the surface when it comes to how we feel about Jessica Claire. Whether it's her own insanely gorgeous wedding that we are swooning over or her latest picture perfect photoshoot, it seems that everything Jessica touches turns to wedding gold. Which couldn't be a better way to describe this next gorgeous shoot that Jessica Claire, Rebecca of Duet Weddings and Kate of Flowerwild collaborated on with their incredible skills and mad creativity...

Kate at Flowerwild...From the beginning, I knew I wanted to bring in a lot of juicy colors for Jessica's workshop. The inspiration boards I created initially were very fiesta oriented with a bohemian twist. I see so many brides looking to create something unique on their wedding day that allows them to have fun and be frivolous but still romantic. A more relaxed affair with tons of color and poufy pillows is just the way to do it!

I searched for the vintage gown tirelessly in many places throughout L.A. - and after many failed attempts- stumbled across this beauty on Ebay. Keyword "maxi dress." It was a steal when you consider typical costs of gowns. After that everything began to fall in place. My main approach to the more relaxed vibe was to create a reception area that allowed guests to sit amongst a myriad of pillows as they dined.

Our table was constructed from a vintage etched Moroccan door that made for a really subtle but beautiful relief behind the turquoise plates and bold coral colored blooms. Rebecca Stone of Duet weddings was kind enough to lend her expertise to the day - bringing in all the lovely details. Slender stemware for a touch of elegance, festive flatware for a little flair, gold fiesta flags to frame each place setting, saffron pillows and linens by La Tavola and fluttering ribbon treatments for the napkins.
