Fairytale Mountain Engagement Session: Megan + Jordan

Fairytale Engagement

We really couldn’t think of a better way to end the week than with an absolutely stunning engagement session in the woods, sure to inspire all of you who are booking + planning your own engagement photos! Photographer Kristen Booth took Megan + Jordan out to a remote spot amongst the trees and captured some truly magical moments on camera. There are lots of pretty shots + a sweet story about M’s first dress coming up in a sec, but first let’s hear a little more about the day from Kristen…

The session started out in the woods….a bit chilly, but filled with glowy light. Part way through, some stormy weather rolled in….the temperature dropped like crazy and there was a ton of fog. Megan and Jordan must have thought I was crazy, as they shivered in the freezing temps and I couldn’t stop exclaiming how LUCKY we were to get these conditions. Cause I loooove me some fog. I kept cheering them on, to just push through, and it would be worth it. They were such troopers, and it was definitely worth it!!!

Megan wore her mother’s wedding dress for the first part of the shoot. Her mom had no idea and was moved to tears when Megan surprised her with the images! Kristen says, I think this is such a sweet gesture and would love to see some more brides doing this!

Moody Marsala Wedding Inspiration

Watters two piece dress

How many of you are beginning to brainstorm design ideas for your fall or winter wedding later this year? If so, today’s editorial just might be the inspiration you’ve been looking for! We love the idea of including the Pantone color of the year, Marsala, into your celebration + they way today’s team (Birds of a Feather Events + photographer, Charla Storey) did so is just so good. They set up shop at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas, Texas and created a scene bursting with moody Marsala details and the most perfect florals ever, thanks to The Southern Table! Finally, the setting felt complete with an ultra unique bridal ensemble: a stunning black + pink lace + ruffle gown by Watters. Check it out…

Marsala Inspired Invitation

Southern Fried Paper nailed it with this gorgeous Marsala invite suite. The lovely calligraphy was by Harts and Quills.

This moody sweetheart table just screams romance. Wendy from Birds of a Feather Events tells us more, We were inspired by the deep tones of Marsala, black, and plum but wanted to make sure it still felt like wedding inspiration, so we added in some soft blush tones and decided to set it in a white, industrial space. We used black candles to create that moody atmosphere…

Favorite Wedding Dresses from Barcelona Bridal Week

Barcelona Bridal Week 2016

If you follow Green Wedding Shoes on Instagram, you probably noticed we were in Barcelona a few weeks ago as the US Blog Ambassador for Barcelona Bridal Week!! Barcelona Bridal Week (BBW) is considered the leading event in Spain and the European benchmark of bridal fashion. They celebrated their 25th anniversary this year and it was such an amazing trip to be able to see + meet so many talented wedding dress designers – plus a few other wedding bloggers from around the world!

With over 20 runway shows and ending with the show stopping Pronovias show (which featured top model Irina Shayk along with a bunch of other Victoria’s Secret Angels) it was quite a week!! But enough talk, let’s get to the gorgeous dresses, right?! :)

One of my favorite shows was the YolanCris show. Their designs are perfect for boho chic brides and I was loving all the floral appliques, lace, crochet and macrame details. I honestly loved every single gown of the 40 they debuted, but here are some of my faves from their 2016 collection.

The Olesa gown (above) includes one of my current favorite trends – a bridal capelet made of fine chantilly.

The Castelao gown above is the perfect wedding look for the modern bride. It has two pieces, a long sleeve crop top made of lace and a skirt with greek style valances.

Spanish designer Jesus Peiro was inspired by snow princesses and her collection was full of feathers, lace, and crop tops over ball gowns.

Houghton was the only US designer invited to the show and they didn’t disappoint! If you’re not familiar with Houghton, the collection is designed by Malibu native Katherine Polk who cites Katherine Hepburn and Bianca Jagger as inspirations – strong women with timeless style. Loved the fringe, lace, capes and overall flowiness of so many of the gowns.

I loved the floral patterns and tulle designs from Spanish designer Isabel Sanchis.

Another favorite (and new-to-me!) was the Marco & Maria show. The sheer fabrics, feathers, pastel colors, organza + tulle won me over. Wait until you see some of the details on these dreamy gowns!

And the last show of the week was the largest, the Pronovias show. I had heard so much about their shows and it didn’t disappint. The show took place at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya and with the theme, Once Upon a Time, there was a giant clock in the background with the show starting at midnight. :) Model Irina Shayk stole the show in her 3 looks including this amazing lace dress she started the show with.

The lace details on their gowns are so stunning and loved all the capes and trains on their gowns.

But the true show stopping moment? This cape gown Irina wore – talk about an entrance! And sounds like you guys loved it too since the photo I took of this dress was the most popular of my photos from the week. :) Seriously so excited for a real bride to sport a cape like this!!

So, I’d love to hear, which dresses did you love? I hope I shared a new designer (or 2 or 3) with you guys today also. And thanks so much to the BBW team for inviting Green Wedding Shoes to Barcelona. We loved your city and left so inspired. Can’t wait to return in 2016!
