Preview: Romantic Redlands, California Estate Shoot

Between Los Angeles and Palm Springs is Redlands, a city where snow-capped mountains meet palm trees and desert landscape. It was a pleasure to again team up with Beatrice of RomaBea Images; we always know that her photographic eye will give justice to our shop’s designer wedding gowns. With a glorious estate as this shoot’s backdrop, the first piece of success was achieved. A handful of gowns, bouquets, vintage postcards, the exquisite work of many professionals, and an abundance of photographs later, inspiration emerged. Stay tuned for a more complete look of this shoot!

Red, White & Blue Wedding Inspiration (with a vintage twist)

Summer’s in full swing, and what says “summer” more than the Fourth of July? Across blogs and websites, there’s no shortage of patriotic wedding and entertaining ideas. However, much of the inspiration involves a classic touch or vintage twist. Either that’s the trend now in general, antiques and vintage, or simply a throwback with good ol’ Americana. Either way, we’re sold! Enjoy the inspiration in faded red, white and blue. May your Fourth be full of festivities and fun, but also incredible pride in our country, its storied past, and ultimately our independence as a country.

Floral Love: Red Roses

Valentine’s Day has passed, but love is still in the air. Truth is, we’ve fallen for red roses in recent months. A classic, true symbol of romantic love, red roses will never go out of style, nor will they cease to lose their “classic” status. One bit of advice when integrating red roses into your wedding, though: be wary of the extras. If you desire chic, pair red roses with an all-white or ivory palette, with maybe metallic accents; that combination is sure to amaze. When done right, the red rose is one of the chicest, most classic (if not overlooked) options in the book. Enjoy the inspiration!

Floral Love: Deep-Hued Calla Lilies

Nothing sets the tone of an event quite like plum, burgundy and black-colored calla lilies. In its shape, a dark-hued calla lily is stylish, an instant classic. It’s also romantic, holding a sort of magical quality. But at the same time it’s mysterious. They say a photo is worth a thousand words; a calla lily is, too. These qualities come with a cost, however, in monetary and health form. Calla lilies are notoriously higher-priced, which makes them an especially luxurious addition to a centerpiece or bouquet. And it cannot be overlooked that calla lilies contain oxalic acid and are poisonous to humans and animals if ingested. We love the look of a mass of calla lilies, whether neatly stacked or packed together in a bouquet. Not to say a single calla lily, say, in a bud vase, can’t hold its own; it can. Admire. Enjoy!
