This beautiful ‘River of Memory’ editorial by ALEXANDER JAMES and styled by LAVENDER & ROSE was a favourite in Issue 8 of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE. With a colour palette and aesthetic inspired by the 1980s French movie Manon des Sources the natural, unkempt beauty in this editorial is what sets it apart. Highlighting a connection with nature and the outdoors, the model is a little wild, a little unpolished, but her beauty shines through regardless.
WITHOUT WAX, KATY is a super talent in the wedding world, from her stunning styling to the incredible florals she creates. So if I told you that together with her husband she has opened the most charming venue, then you can assume that it’s going to be an utterly gorgeous and stylish space!! KRISTEN KILPATRICK captured these images from the open day they held. This quaint venue – called THE UNION ON EIGHTH – is in the heart of the historial downtown square of Georgetown, Texas.
A blacksmith shop. An Oldsmobile dealership. A transmission shop. In its 85 year history, what is now THE UNION ON EIGHTH, has been all of these things. Yet, one thing has remained constant. Its unique shape, enclosed by an antiqued brick wall keeping the venue intimate and closed off from the city. Its solid, hand hewn beams. Its rugged, romantic metal exterior. The timeless look of The Union is made to fit the modern chic bride!
Vendors from Texas were asked to partake in this open house, and together executed such a lovely event with the most gorgeous florals provided from several different wedding designers and florist, and the most divine cuisine and cocktails! Brides, friends of vendors, and guest wandered around as soft acoustic music played throughout the venue. Sounds like a pretty perfect option for a modern stylish wedding!
