A Winter-inspired Fairytale shoot by Poiema Photography

"When my assistant got her hands on a beautiful, thrifted princess-styled wedding dress, we decided we just had to style a shoot around it. We went with a modern fairytale theme, with rich jeweled tones against bright whites. Apples and mirrored details remind us of one of our favorite Grimm's stories, with our bride's "skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony." Cans of Sofia Blanc de Blanc bring in more modern elements as well as white, geometric patterned linens from La Tavola's 2014 release. Guests are presented with candied apples in place of wedding cake and our bride and groom are left to dance the night away under the light of a crystal chandelier." -Wild Heart Events

Vibrant Rustic Bohemian Styled Shoot

"This is a natural and rustic bohemian inspired shoot, combining casual, organic, summery and wild elements we love! We used a real couple (actually newlyweds) to be able to capture real love! Two Sisters Farms was the perfect setting for this wedding style. With wide open spaces, wild grasses, weeping Peruvian pepper trees, the setting was very organic and light which made for perfect backdrops. The colors which inspired us were light neutrals, gold, soft pink, and red which to us felt both rustic and summery. Wild and organic florals in the color palette adorned the sweetheart table, chairs, dessert table, teepee and swing. The florals even incorporated foliage and grasses from around the property! The sweetheart table itself was a salvaged sewing machine base with repurposed wood top, with vintage pink glassware, china, gold goblets, giant decanters, gold tipped bunny place card holders and tiny succulent favors. And how could be not mentioned the gold sprayed succulent detail?" -Stacee Lianna Photography


About the shootInvitations: The invitations incorporated watercolor like backgrounds, playful fonts and subtle feathers. Escort cards were hung from trees in handmade dream-catcher like displays.

Dessert Table: We wanted the dessert table to be vibrant and fun. The main focus was the naked cake, sprinkled with sugar, topped with strawberries and a floral "Just Married" topper. Other treats included mini cheesecakes, mini cupcakes, French macarons, and chocolate mousse dirt cups, all atop a vintage two toned dresser.

The Teepee & Chair: We wanted to capture special moments between the couple in an intimate setting. The light and airy ruffled teepee combined with the bold tribal pattern rug was the perfect balance. We clipped some grasses to adorn the top and added florals to complete the look. The groom even serenaded his bride! The vintage fan back wicker chair was a statement by itself and perfect for some intimate moments also.

The Models: We wanted the dress to be very unique, summery and casual. When we found the lace poncho dress from Free People we knew we had found the perfect fit. We wanted her look to be effortless, so we did natural dewey makeup and relaxed curls. The headpiece was definitely the main focus, a perfect compliment to her dress and look. She also wore a statement feather wedding ring, smaller gold rings, and mixture of bracelets and necklaces. The groom was fitted in a casual tribal pattern shirt, tan pants and maroon shoes. His gold wedding ring was the perfect compliment to hers.

Romantic Day-After Bridal Session in San Juan Capistrano by Eyelet Images

"Jodi and Jamie had a drop dead gorgeous wedding at Brookside Equestrian in Walnut, CA... But because they were also drawn to the historic buildings and natural beauty found in San Juan Capistrano, they decided to put their wedding ensembles on once more for an encore bridal session! It was so amazing to work with them again in such a relaxed setting... pure newlywed bliss!" -Eyelet Images
