Astronomical Twilight: Love Goes Cosmic Chic


I just love when something totally different lands in my inbox! This styled shoot designed by Francine Ribeau Events along with some other super creative Cali vendors does just that. Two bohemian interstellar travelers have crossed the stars to find each other. Rich oranges + golds of the high desert spacescape paint the backdrop for their out-of-this-world flair as they take their vows with the cosmos…

Kind of totally obsessed with that gollypod + the flowers! Super rad.

How cool are the flowers + plants in the glass orbs designed by Tend?! Just perfect for this cosmic couple. If you are interested in making your own orbs for your wedding, they sell an Orb Making Kit here.
