Made With Love Sasha Wedding Dress – Charla’s Bridal Portraits

Made With Love Sasha Wedding Dress – Charla’s Bridals

Made With Love Sasha Wedding Dress

The Made With Love Sasha dress was certainly THE ONE.  After many texts of photos of Charla in about 50 different gowns, it was becoming increasingly obvious that finding the perfect gown was turning out to be a taller order than any of us thought.  Many of you may recognize Charla as she is a wedding photographer and her work is heavily featured in my portfolio.  She is someone who went from vendor, to friendor, to friend over the past 3 years and I was beyond over the moon when she asked me to plan and design her own wedding.  I tend to be strongly opinionated, and I was not vibing with ANY of the dresses she tried on.  Like, zero.   We even went to Kleinfeld in NYC at one point when we were there working, and nada.  The moment this one came through in my text, I was sold.

From the designer…
We decided to take our ever so popular Frankie and take her up a notch, creating the extraordinary Sasha. She is the luxe version, the champagne style, the perfect partner for a tuxedo and the deluxe option for the bride who is that little bit more sophisticated. She is made out of the most gorgeous crochet lace that delicately covers a tan underlay creating so much contrast and her invisible neckline makes her totally irresistible. She is the diva of the two and demands all eyes on her.
So whether your style is effortlessly Boho or unapologetically luxurious you can find yourself reflected in one of these seriously sensational sisters!

 

Charla’s Bridals

When you are a wedding photographer and you are getting married yourself, bridals are a must.  No choice.  Gotta do it.  Charla had her dear friend, Krystle Akin, shoot these for her at The Belmont Studio.  She wanted something very clean with good light that showcased herself, the dress, and the bouquet with out a lot of props or distracting textures.  I think she nailed it.  Below are my favorite shots from her session with Krystle featuring that Made With Love Sasha wedding dress from a and be bridal, hair and makeup by Beauty and the Blush, and a beyond gorgeous bouquet from our friend Maxine at The Southern Table.

Moreland Landing at Palmetto Bluff | Gina and Ryan’s Welcome Party

Moreland Landing at Palmetto Bluff | Gina and Ryan’s Welcome Party

Gina and Ryan held their South Carolina destination wedding at the gorgeous Montage Palmetto Bluff, and there was never any question that we would have the welcome party on property.  Moreland Landing at Palmetto Bluff was the perfect location, and a very cool way to welcome their guests to the Lowcountry.  We started the evening off with a private tour down the river on Grace, which is a 100 year old yacht that belonged to the former owners of the land that Palmetto Bluff now sits on and was named after their daughter.  Guests enjoyed lite bites, wine, and champagne on the yacht and took in the scenery.  After the yacht docked, guests were invited to board a vintage trolley that took them over to Moreland Landing at Palmetto Bluff where they were greeted with a display of hand crafted cocktails and bluegrass music played by a live band.  We decided that a good old fashioned oyster roast and a lowcountry boil was the only way to go to welcome their guests, who are mostly from Dallas, Texas, to the deep south.  Gina loves bright colors, and while we went with more muted tones for the wedding, we had lots of color at their welcome party!  Guests danced the night away under the string lights and the stars, and enjoyed a late night snack from the S’more-cycle.

See more from their wedding day in the latest issue of Southern Weddings Magazine and D Weddings, both on stands now.

Custom Invitation Suites from 2017 – Our Top 5 Favorite

Top 5 Favorite Custom Invitation Suites from 2017

Top 5 Favorite Custom Invitation Suites from 2017

Styling wedding invitations, and wedding stationery in general, is one of my favorite things to do on a wedding day!  I could literally sit on the ground in front of my styling surface for hours moving each piece around, adding/subtracting parts of the suite and styling details, and fussing with it until i feel like it’s just right.  Sometimes there is more than one right way and we end up with a plethora of shots to choose from.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love Minted and we collaborate with them plenty, but there is just something about custom invitation suites that can not be beat!  Below are my Top 5 Favorite Custom Invitation Suites from 2017.  I worked with the designers one on one to create all of the wedding suites, which is a big part of my design services, and the suites from the editorial shoot for Adorn Magazine and the suite from the Life and Craft Workshop that I taught at this fall were collaborations with the designers, but hugely from their creative minds.  I hope you love these suites as much as I do!

 

CHARLA & JESSE

I really loved this wedding – not just because the bride is a pretty bad ass wedding photographer and friend – but also because she let me take the reins and come up with a pretty cool color palette.  I feel like my work is always the best when our clients are up for anything, and she was truly down for the journey.  I’d also like to say that it is an incredible honor any time a fellow wedding vendor asks you to participate in their own wedding, especially when it is someone who is this talented and sought after.

Our palette for this wedding was blush, ochre, shades of green blue ranging from dark to light, and pops of black, which I thought was unexpected and modern.  We decided to stay with more of the green blue shades for the suite as they have a neutral feel to them, and I knew I could add in some more color with flowers the day of the event when I went to style them.  When I am working with a designer on invitations I always like to think about not only the guests first impression of the event, but also ahead to how they will be photographed the day of.  I felt like we had enough going on with the suite with the ink bleeds, hand drawn map, sketch of the venue, wax seal, etc, so i decided to keep the styling clean and not add in a lot of superfluous styling tchotchkes – you have to know when to edit.

This wedding will be featured by Martha Stewart Weddings as well as Magnolia Rouge.  To see more from this wedding, visit Our work.

GINA & RYAN

Gina was another bride from this past year that truly trusted my vision for her wedding and allowed me to move forward with this neutral color palette knowing it would fit the venue and atmosphere she was trying to create best.  Gina is a lover of bright colors and has an eclectic personal style, but Palmetto Bluff is the epitome of the Lowcountry.  It sits right on the Ashley River and with it’s cottages designed in a classic Southern style and it’s coastal vibe, we decided that shades of sage green, soft pink, light blue, oatmeal, and pops of copper and bronze would fit into the landscape the best.  (Don’t fret, a month later we hosted a reception back in Dallas for 150 of their nearest and dearest and bright colors ruled the night!)

Once again, we worked with Chelsea at Southern Fried Paper on this suite, and I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out!  I really wanted to set the tone of this destination wedding right out of the gate, so we chose to not only feature the signature live oak trees of the Lowcountry with their hanging Spanish moss, but we also had Cachet sketch the May River Chapel where they would marry onto the invitation itself.  Gina is an equestrian and spends a lot of her time rescuing horses, so we gave a little nod to that with the horse hair wrap (faux, of course), and a horseshoe on the wax seal.  When it came to styling this suite the day of the wedding, I knew this laurel that I had sourced specifically for the chapel doors would be the perfect accent.

MELISSA & THOMAS

Melissa and her mom had a specific color story envisioned for her wedding, and I was stoked about it!  We used varying shades of blue as our base, and added in peach, marigold, light pink, and my own personal touch of the tiniest amount of lavender to make it feel more like spring.  Their wedding was at The White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Texas, which is an all white barn and such a blank canvas to create in.  I was enthused about being able to add lots of color into the space!

Y’all.  Melissa’s mom designed this suite for her.  How cool is that?!  This is why it makes this one of our favorite custom invitation suites of the year.  I just thought it was so special that she was able to be involved in this way.  We had a “Texasippian” theme for the wedding as Melissa is from Texas and Thomas is from Mississippi, so we wanted to add a little Texas nod into the paper since her mother was designing it.  We decided to go with watercolor bluebonnet petals as they are the state flower.  This ended up being a running detail through out the wedding as we utilized this pattern on the programs, escort cards, and we selected linens and plates that had a blue floral design on them.  When I was styling this, I wanted the watercolor details to be the main focal point.  Choosing a styling surface and ring box in a non-competing color as well as cutting out some petals with a die cutter from the watercolor paper helped achieve this.  The flowers act as color accents to tie it all together with the rest of the wedding design and overall palette.

SAGE + OCHRE

I stepped back from doing a lot of editorial shoots this past year to focus more on my clients, teaching and mentoring wedding planners, designers, and even photographers, and to get a little more of that “work/life balance” that so many of us are in search of.  To be honest, I kind of missed doing them.  I really enjoy the time they allow me to obsess over the details of styling that weddings don’t necessarily provide, and I love having close to 100% creative freedom to do what I want as their is no client to take into consideration.  We can try things that are maybe a little more risky, things that a bride might be nervous to have at her wedding, trends that are on the horizon – or even just ideas that are in our own heads and may never become a trend.  This particular editorial was done for Adorn Magazine and will be in their next issue that is coming out this month.

This mustard yellow is so pretty to me, but has the potential to be off-putting to a bride if she can not see how beautiful it can actually look when paired with other colors.  We wanted to be able to showcase that and propel this color forward in hopes of us being able to incorporate it into more color stories for this year.  Amy with Letter Love Studio did such a fantastic job with this suite that I did not want to style it with any flowers as I was afraid it would take away from the colors we wanted on the forefront.  I think added in these more natural elements gave some texture without competition.

Life and Craft Workshop

Like I said previously, I put aside doing some editorials this past year (and even took on 1 less wedding) so that I could open up my calendar for more teaching opportunities.  I’ve been doing one on one mentoring for a few years now, but I added more workshops to my schedule this past fall.  I’ve had a program that mainly focus on wedding design that I have taught to other planners over the past few years, but this was my first year to teach to photographers.  I’ve added a few workshops to my schedule for 2018 as well, and I’m completely revamping my one on one offerings to add on a second day editorial shoot option (more on that later).

This photo was taken at the Life and Craft workshop that is hosted by Luke and Cat Photography out of Houston, Texas where I taught styling to photographers.  I love the color story from this shoot which we ended up naming rose and rust.  I live styled 3 flat lays (invitation suite, bridal details, groom details) so that I could talk through the styling of each one and share my thought process with the attendees as I went.  They were able to ask questions about my choices as well as actively participate by making suggestions (there are many ways to skin a cat).  In the past I have always pre-styled the flat lays and just chatted about my choices while they shot, and I gotta say, I like this live styling format better.  I made several plaster boards for this shoot to style with as well as a plaster wall to display the escort cards.  Since the plaster boards have so much large texture, I decided to balance that out with some smaller textural items, specifically pieces of this Amaranthus.

White Sparrow Barn Wedding – Melissa and Thomas

White Sparrow Barn Wedding – Melissa and Thomas

White Sparrow Barn Wedding

The White Sparrow Barn is one of my favorite venues to plan a wedding at in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  As we all I know, I love a good outdoor wedding, but this barn offers the best of both worlds.  They have lots of outdoor space as well as indoor space that can accommodate up to 300 guests.  It is a great balance between having a blank canvas if you want to bring in a lot of decor, while still offering a beautiful architectural design if you want to keep things clean and simple.  It can be rustic, Shabby Chic, French country, Southern inspired, and even modern if styled the right way.

This was one of my absolute beloved weddings of the year!  Working with Melissa and her mother Tammy was a dream, and I loved the collaborative relationship I was able to have with them.  So often I am designing on my own as my clients lead really busy lives and lean on us to drive the bus so to speak, but Tammy and Melissa were full of ideas which made the design that much more personal for them.  Tammy designed the stationery, which included water colored bluebonnet petals, and we took that design element and ran it through the rest of the wedding.  I think the results turned out pretty stunning.  Hear more about their wedding below from their feature in the 10th anniversary issue of Southern Weddings Magazine.

From their feature in Southern Weddings Magazine…

HOW THEY MET: Melissa and Thomas met on a blind date bowling with mutual friends, despite her hesitations.  A few weeks later, they were set to head back to college for fall semester (the University of Texas for her, Ole Miss for him), but a few hours before Melissa left, they met up at a park and agreed to date long-distance despite the 11 Hour drive between them.  THE PROPOSAL: Knowing that Melissa loves her family and her alma mater’s home in Austin, Thomas invited her brothers and cousins for a day in Austin doing some of her favorite things (he passed it off as a Christmas gift to deflect suspicion!). They capped off the day with a visit to the Texas state capital, where Thomas proposed in the center of the famed rotunda.  HEIRLOOM RING: Thomas designed Melissa‘s engagement ring at a local jeweler, using an emerald cut diamond from his grandmother’s engagement ring. He hoped the ring would “not only reflect the beginning of our relationship, but also be a reminder of the love that came before us.” THE” I DO’S”: Melissa and Thomas were word on a picture-perfect spring day at the White Sparrow in Texas – it’s all-white modern details wooed even these two admitted barn skeptics. WEDDING GUESTS: 185  PRIDE OF PLACE: Aside from the aesthetics of the barn, the White Sparrow’s story was a perfect match for Melissa and Thomas’s:  it’s owner is a Mississippi native, and many of the barn’s materials were sourced from Mississippi, a state where Thomas’s family has deep roots. The barn perfectly embodied Melissa and Thomas’s Texas and Mississippi heritage, setting the stage for their “Tex-sippian” wedding!  RUNNING WITH IT: Their theme with carried out to perfection, from Southern and Tex-Mex food stations at the reception (including a biscuit bar and a taco bar), an Ole Miss groom’s cake, custom “Hotty Toddy Hook ‘Em Horns” koozies (Thomas‘s favorite detail from the day!), and Whataburger fries and Dr Pepper as late night favors.  MUSIC TO MY EARS: The playlists Melissa and Thomas created for each other played an important role in their long distance relationship, so choosing just the right songs for key parts of the reception was a big task. The two settled on “Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton for their first dance, and Melissa and her father danced to “Mr. Bojangles” for their father-daughter dance (and later in the evening, “Melissa” by the Allman Brothers, the song she was named after). “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks was the last song of the evening, and the two shared a final solo spin around the dance floor to “Coming Home” by Leon Bridges as their guests lit sparklers for the official send off outside.  See below for photos from their White Sparrow Barn wedding…

English Garden Wedding Editorial

English Garden Wedding Editorial

This English garden wedding editorial was actually shot right here in my home town of Dallas, can you believe it?!  Our friend Natalie of NBarrett Photography had attended a party at the home thrown by a friend of a friend and knew that she just had to shoot there!  Thankfully, the homeowner’s were gracious enough to oblige.  This really is one of my favorite editorials we have ever done and I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to blogging it.  The shame is palatable!  I think, if memory serves, this was my first foray into the style that has become known as “fine art” over the past few years, and after this I was hooked!  So yeah, this is definitely a throwback.  2015 I think?  Well, IMO, it still translates well.  Let me know in the comments if you agree, or if you think it’s so over 😉

From Magnolia Rouge…

Hello there!  It’s been a long weekend here in New Zealand and whilst it started off rather miserable and rainy, it finished off all summery like which was wonderful!!  We mooched around the home, tidied up the garden, walked the pups, did some spring cleaning, visited family, had family visit us, walked the pups again – and again, and just chilled.  Perfectly lovely!

Our first feature of the week is by NBarret Photography who collaborated with designer and stylist Birds of a Feather Events to create this soft and romantic inspiration in an otherwise pristine environment.  When you discover a stunning residence like this with it’s beautiful manicured gardens and landscapes, of course you’d want to do a shoot there!  The Southern Table put together some drop dead gorgeous florals and a lovely paper suite from Blue Eye Brown Eye tied it all together.
