A Love Shoot in the Desert: A Pale Pink Wedding Dress

Two weeks ago while in Vegas, I had the honor of working with Vania + Christine of Simply Bloom Photography to style a photo shoot for them. The real life couple flew in from Wisconsin (yep, it’s a good thing Krysta + Brady were prepared for the cold, because it got really cold out there!) to be our models. For the shoot, we wanted to show that the bride doesn’t have to wear white, this pink dress by designer Claire La Faye would be such a lovely dress for a wedding! I’m also totally in love with the idea of real flowers worn as a halo and just love what Layers of Lovely created for Krysta. For our bohemian bride, Lisa Strawther did an amazing job with the hair + make-up also – love the little braids!

I wanted Brady to have a casual, but hip look to match Krysta’s pretty pink dress. He is wearing a vintage tie and a black vest from H&M.

I’ve also been super inspired by paper flowers + artist Eloise Corrdanch for a long time now. That was actually one of the first things I knew I wanted to incorporate into this shoot when we started talking about it way back in November! I used this template from Martha Stewart but made my petals about twice as big for a more dramatic feel.

This beautiful hair piece is from Untamed Petals and went perfectly with the pink dress!
