Rustic Modern Romance

"The venue, Retreat Malibu, had a wide open space nestled in the mountains of Malibu.  I knew this would be the right space for our Editorial Shoot. It has so many different aspects from rustic, to modern to vintage. The main house is nestled around acres of palm trees and wildflowers. Malibu meets a hint of Palm Desert. It was just perfect for our Modern/Urban Romance shoot.

Every Bride wants that WOW factor, they don't want the same dress as the last bride and they definitely do not want to break the bank. We wanted to do just that and took all three factors in mind. In doing so we found this sleek low cut top at Urban Outfitters to be paired it up with a flowing blush tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle. For the reception we changed her look just a tad bit by adding a different color top but keeping that same sleek look. Of course we had to do the same for the Groom. Why not give him some edginess. He wore a grey suit with a black dress shirt from Friar Tux. Our dinner table was filled with bountiful blooms and hues of yellow, burnt orange, blousy pinks, and deep Pantone colors. We used the mix and match glasses and dinnerware from Anthropologie to bring you this beautiful setup.  Using their marble and granite cheese boards as the chargers gave it more texture and something unique to catch your eye.
