Here's a bit of inspo that could come from a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars is the theme of this little piece of magic. Created by Houston based Sonia Melendez of C Baron Photography she says, "Okay, maybe not another galaxy, but I couldn’t resist! As Star Wars fans, we have had a roller coaster of emotions between the passing of Carrie Fisher, our Princess, and the upcoming release of the newest film. We knew we wanted to honor Carrie Fisher’s memory and share our excitement about The Last Jedi. Being in the event industry, we could think of no better way to do so than plan an inspiration shoot. Luckily, the great state of Texas offers many different landscapes one of which greatly resembles Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine. We knew there was no other place more suited for our shoot. We started planning whole heartedly knowing that the standards for this shoot would be incredibly high. We wanted every detail to emulate the films and truly feel as though you were immersed in that galaxy far, far away. We wanted a color scheme of C3PO Gold and Galaxy Black. Most importantly, we knew we had to create the perfect look to pay homage to Princess Leia. We found the ideal gown to honor our Princess and styled her hair in a modern bun. Personally, I feel as though the phrases are the most iconic portion of the film. It just wouldn’t be Star Wars without including some of our favorite quotes. We feel the force was with us as we poured our hearts and souls into creating the right balance of beauty and science fiction. We hope all the other Star Wars fans out there love it as much as we do!"

Greetings from Deer Park Villa in scenic Fairfax, California. Today we have a little peek behind the scenes of an absolutely fabulous shoot coming up on Bride Chic in about a month. Two photographers, Lara Onac and Amanda Aceves have been wanting to do a project like this since their days in photography school. Both shooters were a joy to work with as were all the talented Bay Area vendors--Maria of Studio Wildflower and hair and makeup artist extraordinaire, Taylor Gallanter who fashioned the bride to look so Gatsbyesque. Special thanks and kudos to Misha and Anna our real life couple who got to have another wedding all to themselves this time . . . .
