When the black tie dress code was requested for Jaime and Nick‘s romantic spring Texas ranch wedding, many might have arched their eyebrows. To us, it’s a beautiful kind of surprise. It’s about highlighting the juxtaposition between unfettered nature and the high civility of floor-length frocks and black tie. In doing so, it was the florals that painted it all together. From lilac to the palest lavender, lush and romantic spring blooms adorned everything from bridesmaid tresses to the reception ceiling. Our favorite way to soften even the most rustic of spaces. Take a look into the romantic details captured by Jane Bernard after the jump.

We were so excited when Jaime and Nick came to us requesting a romantic and elegant hill country wedding on the groom’s family’s ranch. We’re always game to mix a high/low, rustic/black tie combination and this wedding was definitely the one that embodied this to the core! As you can see from the first photo, we got a little wild with the florals with the main installation being a 15′ square of hanging wisteria over the dance floor. A complete showstopper! When we meet clients who let us explore our imaginations together, amazing things always happen. Lucky for us, we had Taylor Lord there to photograph it all. Take a look at all the romantic details after the jump! Read More
Though quite the tragic drama, Atonement, the 2007 film based on Ian McEwan’s book of the same name, is exceptionally beautiful and majestic. Inspired by the film’s chateau in the english countryside and the 1930s setting, we can’t help but dream up how this could transcend into a wedding of elegant, timeworn magnificence.
It’s that je ne sais quoi that everyone wants. Next up on the list of designers we love is Rue De Seine they are giving it to us. In a sea of French-inspired everything, this effortlessly romantic New Zealand-based bridal designer stands out with a fresh take on the timeless style.
