From Heart’s Content Events & Design:
This shoot emphasized my love for intimate, romantic weddings with an exotic twist, featuring some ornate Moroccan cultural details. Moroccan poufs, used at the reception table in the shoot, are low to the ground and create a very intimate feel to your wedding. The jewel tones used throughout the shoot is reminiscent of the lively colors and celebration more modern Moroccan weddings, and create a vivacious pop of color against the neutral beach tones in the shoot.

The Hayley Paige gown accompanied by the ornate crystal bolero was specifically selected to be a modernized version of the traditional wedding gown worn by a Moroccan bride at the end of the wedding celebration. The traditional Moroccan bride can change as much as seven times during the wedding celebration, but the last gown is often a stunning white gown accompanied with ornate and gorgeous jewelry.

Old Fashioned Family Wedding

 rustic wedding ideas

You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel. Traditional weddings leave lasting memories just as the ones before. Taylor and Michelle’s old fashioned family wedding took place on their family’s property and everything from the flowers to the dessert table were created by their loved ones. This fabulous day was beautifully captured by Zipporah Photography.

From Zipporah Photography:
As A wedding photographer I love that I sometimes get to see and capture things that others don’t get the privilege too see! My favorite moment of the day, other than Michelle walking down to Beautiful by Phil Wickham, was that split moment right before Michelle’s father gave her away. Taylor, Michelle’s dad, and Michelle were standing in a line right in front of the pastor. And Taylor and Michelle kept sneaking glances at each other. You could just feel the eagerness and excitement at that moment.

on what inspired the details

From Reverie Supply:
With this project we wanted to focus on an ethereal, soft yet romantic and glamorous shoot all with rustic elements in mind. The focus of our shoot was the Galia Lahav gowns, so we wished to keep everything else muted, neutral and simplistic. Early Mountain Vineyards was a perfect venue for the shoot because of the beautifully vast landscape and its subtle rustic charm.
