We’re charmed with the pretty spring colours in this Texan editorial from the very lovely CHARLA STOREY. Together with stylist BIRDS OF A FEATHER and floristTHE SOUTHERN TABLE they’ve subtly infused tones of peach and yellow throughout the shoot, rather than overwhelm you with full spectrum colour. TRACY MELTON ARTISTRY has created a beautiful soft side swept hair do for the model which works beautifully with the lace WATTERS gown. Go ahead and start pinning all these pretty ideas!
Katherine and Adam Nowak were clearly destined to meet – they’d had a series of near misses over the years, including a party Katherine threw that Adam attended! But it wasn’t until both had moved to New York that the timing was right and the grand introduction was made. One snowy night, after a few blissful years together, Adam proposed in Washington Square Park, and the two city dwellers started planning a country wedding in Wyoming. Inspired by the incredible natural beauty of the location, with its aspen trees, green fields and majestic mountains, they opted for a rustic, elegant style that felt sophisticated, yet natural and who better to document it than CARRIE PATTERSON who knows this area so well. Florist Sarah Jane of LILY & CO. created wandering floral displays across the wooden tables, with topiaries, kumquats and terracotta pots. The focal points of Katherine’s bouquet were peonies and garden roses, treasured favourites of her late mother. Another family touch was the inclusion of a tradition to honour Adam’s Polish heritage, where the couple’s parents presented them with a loaf of bread to symbolise always having food on the table, and salt, that they will always enjoy the spice of life.
“We knew in our hearts if anything didn’t go quite as planned it was because of something we literally could not control. That mentality allowed us to truly enjoy the weekend and not worry about the details. It was all about the love we felt and the fun we had together and with our friends and family.
Our ceremony was incredibly special to us. We laughed, we cried, we felt my mom’s presence through a rather loud breeze in the aspen grove, one of my best friends sang ‘Make You Feel My Love’, and most important: we got married!”
VILLA SIENA offers a little slice of Italy in the midst of Arizona, and it’s elegant European aesthetic inspired Gia & Brett to have the romantic and classy wedding you see portrayed below by BRUSHFIRE PHOTOGRAPHY. In fact the three words they used to describe it were “love, fairytale and magic”! Gia wore a stunning LAZARO gown with layers of divine ruffles and carried a bouquet of white, cream and blush blooms in keeping with the romantic feel. The couple recommend the hiring of a cinematographer telling us, “Our video is my most favorite thing from the entire day. Everything goes by so fast, so seeing the emotions play out in real life was one of the most amazing memories we now have forever.“
