For this Spring wedding editorial we were inspired by the beauty of Kestrel Park, a 19th Century English Country home and gardens located in the heart of Santa Ynez, CA. Hylah White Special Events chose French blue to be the main color inspiration to play off the European feel of the venue. We loved how the light shade of blue complemented the cherry blossoms that were in bloom throughout the garden, which led us to choose a stunning cherry blossom printed gown from Monique Lhuillier's unique RTW collection for our fashion forward bride's ceremony dress.

Continuing the garden inspiration our bride changed into another beautiful RTW Monique Lhuillier gown with a beautiful high low hem allowing her to show off her beautiful floral booties designed by Joy Proctor for Bella Belle Shoes. Afterwards, the bride changed into a third stunning Monique Lhuillier bridal gown with a gorgeous lace bodice and layer upon layer of magnificent tulle for some golden hour portraits in the beautiful rolling hills of Santa Ynez.

The incredible Felissa from Of The Flowers made three unique bouquets inspired by each gown. Stacie Ford and Caitlynn Demetrician for Stacie Ford created beautiful and natural hair and makeup looks for each gown embracing and playing up the bride's beautiful natural curls with delicate foliage inspired hair pieces by Hushed Commotion.

The reception table was set between the magnificent garden hedges and the stone castle-like horse stables, truly making the entire day feel like a fairy tale! Guests were welcomed to their seats with hand calligraphed place settings on their seats and each place setting had a beautiful torn edge menu with the same wax seal as the invitation.

Of the Flowers and Hylah White Special Events paired white and green centerpieces with beautiful marble slabs and a mixture of silver and crystal candlestick holders with french blue candles. Not to leave a detail untouched the scent of the flowers from the table was just as beautiful as the tablescape looked! A lovely dessert table was set beneath the blooming wisteria on the other side of the stables with macaron towers from Bottega Louie. The perfect ending to a fairytale wedding day!

Venetian Baroque Masquerade Wedding Insporation, Venice, Italy Fine Art Wedding Photography

Our Venetian elopement editorial, featuring real life married couple Irina and Roberto, was inspired by the romance of the floating city itself.  The city is famous for its gondolas, canals, Casanova and of course Masquerade Balls.  We were inspired by the Baroque paintings that covered the Hall of Music in the Ca'Sagredo Hotel and carried the palette through the shoot with black and gold as our dominant colors with deep pops of red.  Venice is famous for their glasswork and lace, which are made on the islands of Murano and Burano right off of Venice's shore and the black lace Claire Pettibone dress set the tone for the dark romance of the day, which was echoed in the lace runner on the ballroom table.  Written Word Calligraphy created an invitation suite featuring a folded invitation that opened like a letter and hearkened back to Casanova's love letters that he would write to his lovers while imprisoned in the city.  A single red rose bud was placed on the four guest's plates next to the love letter-like menu along with a miniature mask much like the one the bride wore during portraits.  We imagined the couple would enjoy a romantic and intimate meal followed by a masquerade ball of music and dancing and then a gondola ride through the canals of Venice.  Featured in the current issue of Magnolia Rouge Magazine
