Rustic Watercolor Wedding Inspiration

red bouquet

Last November, I had the pleasure of speaking at Jen Huang’s photography workshop in Santa Ynez, CA. It was great getting to meet a bunch of talented photographers and talk about what we are looking to share here on GWS and then getting to model for a love shoot with Jason (we will treasure those photos forever, so thanks so much for that opportunity!) The photographers also photographed this gorgeous styled shoot the next day with this gorgeous real life couple. I love the watercolor palette and the two Saja wedding dresses she is wearing – so perfect for a laid-back wedding. With the gorgeous florals by Poppies And Posies Events and the styling by The Source and Eye, it’s such pretty inspiration to start the year off (and lots of great photos to pin!) All the gorgeous photos are by Jen Huang Photography.

Kind of totally obsessed with her hair + makeup! Both by the lovely + sweet Nicole Deanne (who did my hair the day before which I just loved also – thanks again Nicole!)

All the lovely cakes are by Enjoy Cupcakes – their cupcakes are some of the best I’ve had and aren’t the little cakes just so super pretty?!

Flower halos just make everything so much more romantic, right?! :)
