Modern Boho Wedding Inspiration Shoot

"This is the ultimate California Modern Boho inspiration. Set in the heart of the Arts District in Downtown LA, there is a perfect juxtaposition of modern loft vibes paired with overgrown bougainvillea and greenery to bring in that boho vibe. We brought in a dream team of vendors to inspire brides who love the earthy organic look, but aren't necessarily into flower crowns and dream catchers. This is for the modern bride who wants a touch of whimsy to her wedding day. We thought soft shades of blue and white would pair so well with our pantone color of the year - Greenery - which is naturally all around the outdoor courtyard of Seventh Place. With mixing brushed gold and clear glass, the modern boho look is achieved. Can we talk about her HANDMADE crochet dress made by local designer?! What a dream! Everything from the rentals, paper products, and bridal details can all be achieved by any bride right here in LA!" -Tasteful Tatters

Torrey Pines Beach Bridal Inspiration by Matoli Keely Photography

"We wanted to create an editorial that showcased soft romantic muted tones, with a simplistic backdrop that would allow these elements to truly shine. Torrey Pines cliffs and beach provided a gorgeous aesthetic and allowed the vision to truly come to life. The grey-blue dress, soft romantic up do, and breathtaking florals brought every aspect of this inspiration together with the help of incredibly talented and local Southern California vendors." -Matoli Keely Phototraphy

Romantic Coastal Elegance featuring Oleg Cassini for David's Bridal

We are head over heels over this romantic coastal elegance styled shoot featuring designs by Oleg Cassini bridesmaids dresses for David's Bridal. This new and exclusive launched in 100 stores and also online at the beginning of October. With a price range of $169.95-$189.95 and available in sizes 0-30, this collection is perfect for brides who are planning a timeless and elegant wedding!

More on this shoot: 
Our inspiration evolved from the designer himself. Oleg Cassini is a celebrity designer who is known for dressing icons like Jackie O and Grace Kelly. As the queen of timeless elegance, we were inspired by Grace Kelly, and envisioned the romance of “Grace Kelly in the Hamptons” captured beautifully on film. 
The venue, Seven Springs, is a picturesque historical estate just outside of Richmond, Virginia. Built in 1732, the manor has a rich history, included a stay by George Washington himself. Seven Springs is also home to a flock of heritage breed Hog Island sheep, who make an appearance at events for animal lovers. The gowns were the stars of the show, with dreamy pale pink lace, retro silhouettes, and impeccable beading as some of the highlights. With breath-taking cathedral veils and the perfect red lip, the brides showcased a timeless elegance that would have made Grace proud! 

At the reception, we designed a romantic table for two, complete with sweetheart settee for the newlyweds. For the tablescape, we took our inspiration straight from Grace Kelly in a scene in High Society, where she is with a model boat of the boat, True Love. As the perfect nautical touch and nod to the film, the highlight of the decor is the model boat, floating on a bed of greenery, with “Darling, let’s be adventurers” in calligraphy adorning the sail. Heirloom glassware and silverware add to the chic timelessness, while hand-lettered mussel place cards give an added touch of whimsy. Ending off the celebration was a retro caravan bar that featured scrumptious champagne accoutrement selections like lush blackberries, fragrant rosemary and a dash of pear juice.  The caravan served as the perfect bridge to yesteryear while showcasing modern amenities and stylings.  The day was complete with a champagne toast and a cuddle with Cupid, one of Seven Springs’ sheep! 

Citrus Inspired Styled Shoot in an Orange Grove

“Looking on the brighter side” were just the words that brought the inspiration for our Citrus Shoot. We incorporated vibrant elements, and strived to create that elegant and glam attitude! The smell of the succulent orange groves brought the shoot to life and inspired us to really toss in the playful and enchanting décor items, as well as in the floral design and tableware. The talented, Gabe + Brit Photographers captured every juicy (pun intended) detail and kept our vision on the brighter side.  - Pure Lavish Events
