I’m thrilled to share these truly stunning images by INSPIRED BY LOVE at the workshop Sona held recently in Slovakia. CIARA O’HALLORAN styled a beautifully elegant shoot which was set against the backdrop of Slovakian rolling hills, capturing the natural beauty of the historic HOTEL CHATEAU BÉLA. Working with a palette of citrus, blush and dusty pink shades florist BIELY ATELIÉR created some seriously pretty bouquets which were accented with luscious hand dyed silk ribbon from SILK & WILLOW. A dreamy blush wedding gown by SARAH JANKS as well as a gorgeous beaded one from JANA JUR?ENKO were the showstoppers.
When you think of mountain weddings you generally think of something a little rustic, so I love that Jenn & Bob broke the mold and have gone with a slightly more polished look incorporating a lot of black, grey and white. The bridesmaids look fabulous in their varying styles of black. The lovely ASHLEY SAWTELLE who captured these beautiful images, gives us a brief rundown of their day… oh can I just mention how much I LOVE their chuppah – so pretty!!
“Their wedding took place at Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek. This venue is tucked into the mountains, surrounded by Aspen groves and breathtaking views of Beaver Creek Ski Resort. They went for a delicate and timeless feel rich in Jewish tradition. They had a traditional Ketubah signing before their ceremony, which including a beautiful and handmade document that is unique to their marriage. Other details included a custom chuppah, candlelit long tables with romantic blooms on top of moss logs to tie in with the mountain theme and a delicate three tier cake with beautiful blooms.”

I never tire of Autumn colours… they’re just so warm and welcoming! Photographer SHANNON ELIZABETH and a team of Utah vendors wanted to create a shoot that was a little different to the standard bride & groom shoot, so focused on the bride getting ready for her big day with her bridesmaids… which of course is such a fun part of the wedding day process! I remember it well myself… sitting back sipping champagne, whilst we got hair & make-up done… so fun!! I’m completely smitten with anything Annie from WILDFIELD PAPER CO. does and the stationery suite she designed for this shoot is just so pretty! I also love how ST. THOMAS FLORAL DESIGN has used large autumn leaves in the bouquet adding to it’s perfectly unstructured feel.
