Obsessed with all things Southwestern the effervescent SHALYN NELSON (seriously you have to follow this gal… she’ll brighten any dull day!) travelled to Austin, Texas over the summer for a friend’s wedding and decided it was the perfect opportunity to also meet some wedding vendors in the area and style something inspired by the region. BARR MANSION was the perfect location for this modern shoot with a colour palette of neutrals, mints and bright pops of summer hues. Aztec patterns were incorporated with the rentals from BIRCH & BRASS and the dessert and treats all added to the Southwestern theme with mini cactus chocolate bites and a cake with a succulent and feather details. SHALYN’S photography is utterly dreamy and romantic and she’s captured all the details perfectly – especially the gorgeous bride who has a very soft and romantic look while wearing an edgier Blush by Hayley Paige gown from IVORY & BEAU.
“If music be the food of love, play on…” Shakespeare could just as well have been talking about Caroline and Remi when he penned those famous words, since their shared passion for music is one of the things that brings them together, alongside their love of family and friends. For their wedding in Provence, they dreamed of a relaxed, elegant atmosphere and helped to create it with a Brazilian band, who had everyone up and dancing during cocktail hour. The musical surprises didn’t stop there – during the night the couple were treated to a mini-concert by their bridal party, and a flashmob from all their guests! BUBBLEROCK were on hand to capture all the festivities!
The beautiful backdrop of Provence provided the inspiration for the décor. The couple kept things simple with just a touch of rustic, and gorgeous florals including the white and pastel flowers in Caroline’s bouquet, and olive leaves to pay tribute to their South of France location. The bride’s dress was another example of chic French style, created by Parisian designer LAURE DE SAGAZAN.

The romance of the moody Irish landscapes is undeniable and this natural and organic bridal shoot by ALYSSA JOY PHOTO makes my wandering heart happy!! This is just the sort of landscape I’d be wanting to have my wedding portrait captured in. Collaborating with stylist ALISE TAGGART & Katherine from SCRIPT MERCHANT CALLIGRAPHY, the trio spent some time in the area of Northern Ireland that C.S. Lewis was born in – and even the specific area that he was inspired by as he wrote the Chronicles of Narnia series. Working with some of his quotes, Katherine turned them into stunning works of art which fit seamlessly into the textured surroundings.
