I adore this shoot from GREEN APPLE PHOTOGRAPHY and ALLISON BADDLEY OF LA FETE. It’s like a fairy tale with an edgy twist with it’s neglected yet dreamlike quality. The cake by PIPPA CAKERY might just be one of my favourites ever… it’s styled to perfection!! And the gorgeous stationery suite by PINK PIGGY DESIGN looks ever so lovely laying on a bed of rambling foliage. The florals by ALLISON are the most beautiful rich combination – perfect for a winter wedding. Thank you ladies for sharing such lovely inspiration with us!
I am SO thrilled to be showcasing the new collection of STUNNING gowns from CHIAVANO COUTURE. There are so many gorgeous gowns I have no idea how one would go about making a selection! Perhaps you’d have to wear two gowns!! The gowns have been beautifully captured by LAUREN KINSEY, with florals by LINDSAY COLETTA and styling by CARLEE SIZEMORE. BLUE EYED YONDER designed a beautiful backdrop, and CLAUDIA MEJERLE has worked her usual magic on the hair and make-up.
Designer Annette Thurmon has this to say about the collection, “Amore, love. It’s the thing that makes our hearts sing and pitter patter. This new collection is all about love. The excitement and amore a girl feels towards her special someone. It is about the unforgettable moment a girl experiences when putting on a beautiful wedding gown. With fabrics soft and dreamy, gorgeous laces and silks, this collection reflects Amore. Chaviano is my maiden name and it’s of Italian descent. For this reason, the collection embodies Italian names and Amore served as the inspiration for the collection shoot as well. I hope this inspires you to share your love in a big way with those closest to you.“

In honour of her dear friends 8th anniversary, photographer JENNA BECHTHOLT put together a simple Malibu beach sunset picnic to celebrate and properly mark such an important milestone for them! Jenna says “They wanted to make these pictures special by incorporating a fun picnic theme, which ended up working out perfectly! They included a few touches of red, white and blue along with a classic apple pie garnished with a few local cherries and a blue bowtie to tie it all together! Leo Carrillo Beach in Malibu was the perfect spot because it wasn’t overly crowded, it is lined with a beautiful rocky shoreline and plant life which made the scene extra special, and we had some awesome lighting as the sun began to set.“
