Love with Abandon Editorial Shoot


Love with abandon. It’s quite the romantic notion isn’t it? I love everything about this fabulous shoot by ACE & WHIM, that took place at their recent workshop in Phoenix, Arizona. The beautiful desert landscape – and that crazy dramatic sky -, the gorgeous ALEXANDRA GRECCO gown, and those crazy good florals by SARAH’S GARDEN whose work I absolutely adore! 

Karie from Ace & Whim said: “The idea of all consuming love meeting in a place of total desolation like the desert is what drove the inspiration for this styled shoot at our recent workshop. Natural elements, slate tones and a grey wedding dress were perfect compliments to our inspiration. We had no idea that nature was going to take our visions to a whole new level. Only an hour into the styled shoot with our students, a Haboob (dust storm), which occur frequently during monsoon season, hit our shoot.

Stunningly romantic Russian wedding


For their wedding day, Elen and Nikolay dreamed of creating a warm, at-home ambience, a celebration that felt like a summery homemade dinner in the countryside with their nearest and dearest. A series of thoughtful touches and beautiful details created a serene atmosphere, a cozy celebration that was a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. SONYA KHEGAY captured all the amazingness of the day (and be sure to check out the beautiful Elen’s getting ready images here).

Fluttering ribbons and graceful lace, rustic wooden signage with flowing, hand-painted script, airy floral compositions in the English garden style – details that reflected the pair’s relaxed alfresco vision in shades of ivory, caramel and honey. Escort cards were attached to a board of flowers, creating a deconstructed bouquet that tied in perfectly with the bridal party’s exquisite florals.

The couple ensured there was plenty to entertain their guests once the waterside ceremony was complete. On the green grass near the marquee that housed their wedding dinner, they placed a sweet bar and a hookah lounge, where guests could mingle beneath the trees. They could also try weaving wreaths, or having their portraits drawn by a specially commissioned artist. At the end of the night, a spectacular fireworks display lit up the night sky, before guests were treated to a same day edit of the wedding film, in the best tradition of watching a movie with family and friends.

Elen invited her guests to participate in the chic country dress code by publishing inspiring images on her social networks. The bride herself wore a breathtaking Elie Saab gown, the delicate Louise, which perfectly suited her garden wedding style with its softly flared skirt and cap sleeves adorned with flowers and gemstones.
