INSPIRATION: "charm ~ a power of pleasing or attracting, as through personality or beauty:."
Published in Wedding Chicks.
Stirred by the charm of the South this stylized shoot on location in Temecula Wine country was at once lush and captivating. The look was inspired by the soft sherbet tones of pure white innocence, fresh peach and subtle pale pinks all set off by the cerulean blue luster.
The overall essence of the theme was captured in the flowers and table settings. With loose unstructured blooms, the alluring paper suite by Paper Villa and a combination of pottery and vintage glass we were able to portray what a relaxed and romantic southern afternoon might feel like. The dessert backdrop, a drifting ribbon wall of the same soft color palette encased in an oversize gilded frame invoked perfect southern hospitality displaying a three tired cake draped with delicate kumquats, fresh juicy peaches and luscious roses.
As evening began to fall the bride arrived in an era inspired 1954 Plymouth setting the stage for the perfect imminent wedding. The ceremony site was ethereal with its glowing candlelight, mix of classical and vintage chairs and silky ribbons draped from the willow trees overlooking a serene lake of fire.
This was an opportunity for a behind the scenes photographer, accustomed to capturing her clients designs to bring to life her own impression of a powerful, yet romantically whimsical sweet love story. Designed by L Parker Photography and coordinated by Celebrations by Diana. With cake by Bo Cakes Bakery / flowers by Finicky Flowers /hair and makeup by Runway Bridal /Wedding gowns by Elyse Rueben custom couture.

For this Shades of Metal style shoot, one look at this stunning vineyard in Temecula Wine Country surrounded by a lake of fire and water was all it took. The rare elements of earth combined with the contemporary look of metal, copper and slate allowed the designers to weave modern industrial segments with mid-century vintage pieces.
