In a whirlwind of incredibly beautiful, historic, and awe-inspiring scenery and in a sea of soft, serene, organic wedding inspiration… was THIS. I recently had a really lovely trip to Texas for a wedding photography workshop called The Hybrid Collective, which was enlightening and refreshing for my creative soul. Today I am thrilled to share this masterclass with nods to a Spanish culture, old world feels, and simply artistic design elements by Janna Brown Design.
Starting with the anchor of the design, the table… Janna designed this as a “drunken feast” with overflowing fruits, wine, and literary details as well with the books. The stonework from the Mission itself provided the most perfect backdrop as it felt indoors, yet outdoors and mysterious and ancient, yet refreshingly new. The models were perfectly undone with a natural glow for the bride and tousled tresses. I fell in love with her lace Christos Costarellos that fit the era so well. The florals were wildly composed, yet designed with a classic ivory and natural green color palette – I wanted to steal the bouquet it was that pretty! And finally, the ceremony space just took my breath away. The simplicity of chairs and a swag of simple greens… too good. Trips like these, shooting with fellow photographers and learning about business and art, invigorate my artistic side and give me so much inspiration for the wedding season coming up!
