A coming together of some fantastic vendors and gorgeous venue, this elegant wedding inspiration shoot boasts of California vineyards’ perfect art deco backdrop and rich details. The photos are indeed praiseworthy and they give me fairytale feels! Kudos to the team behind this beautiful shoot!
Extra Special Details
Fairy tale elegance. The bride and groom did a short couple’s session with a beautiful white horse, which added an extra elegance to their event and final photos.
Surely irresistible! The venue offered a Rolls Royce to the couple for picture taking.
The flower arrangement. They were deconstructed in a way that modernized the feel and went well with the vineyard’s rambling vines and outdoor landscapes. Stepping away from a tight flower arrangement added a rustic touch to the decor. Adding touches of greenery to the chairs and tables kept the elegance but added whimsy.
The color palette. Red, white and gold.
Words From The Photographer
♥ Take risks. Don’t be afraid of blending more than one or two wedding styles to get the look your going for.
♥ Stay with the color theme of your venue when choosing your pallete, and build on what is already there. If your venue is rustic, you can blend that with an elegant style but you still have to stay within that theme somewhat.
♥ There are ways to do rustic while also being elegant.
♥ Book your vendors as a team. Try and book vendors that know each other and work together often. Vendors will negotiate on price if it means working with a group they enjoy and are comfortable with.
♥ Do some things yourself but not everything. Pick your battles. If you need to DIY, try and keep it realistic. There is a big difference between doing five table center pieces and doing 250 hand stitched guest favors.
♥ Have fun with it! On your wedding day, let it all go and just have fun.
