A Romantic Wedding Shoot at Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park

"Simplicity and elegance were exactly what we wanted for our Fine Arts inspired shoot. We wanted something dreamy and whimsical, a location that provided a wild, earthy feel, and a site that provided that perfect golden hour. Utilizing the earth’s beautiful elements, Mark Martinez Photography was able to capture everything that we had dreamt of. Our palette was a mixture of neutrals. Hues of grays, pinks, creme, tons of greenery, and pops of dusty blue and antique silver. Our tablescape was vintage inspired with a modern twist. We knew that we needed a statement piece and that is when we found Borrowed Blu’s Baroque concrete charger. We paired it with a modern plate, antique silver flatware, and vintage goblets. We went with a linen textile and vineyard chairs, compliments of Classic Party Rentals to tie in our elegant look. Our artfully designed floral centerpiece was created by Marie Fabulous Flowers, who used a mixture of garden roses, ranunculus, eucalyptus, and lamb’s ear. Calligrapher, Sarah Bond used her creativity to hand-make our invitation suite and dusty blue place card setting. With all of these pretty details, we knew we needed a super chic and airy gown to make our vision come to fruition. We teamed up with designer Casablanca Bridal for their fall release, called Beloved, which happened to fit our theme perfectly. We used three female models to provide different skin tones and looks. Make-up artist Stephanie Ortiz used soft tones of pink and purple on the eyes, lips, and cheeks to reflect a romantic ethereal feel. With the help of Hair stylist Ashley Herron; she crafted three different simple, flowy, yet elegant updos. The jewelry is Petals and Stones, and the gorgeous engagement rings are from Studio 1040 Designs. The Suit was provided by Friar Tux and the entire day was captured on video by the talented Miguel Garcia Studios." -Two Sisters Events Co.
