I love combos featuring rustic design details mixed with elegance.  This shoot is another stunner by Alea Lovely concentrating on all those imaginative and charming elements we look for to make design and decor unique.  Said Alea about putting this all together," We shot on the Longview Mansion’s grounds that had a lot of rustic structures we could work with along with the great overgrown grass. With the vision I had to shoot it I just couldn’t find a dress that matched the feeling of what we were going for so I made the dress to capture thewhimsical direction we were headed for and used color in the dress inspired by the latest fashion trend of using color in bridal. The florist used her great-grandmother’s amazing pink antique depression glass as centerpieces and accents to the flowers and cake. The cake decorator used a brush-like texture on the buttercream to give it a nest-like look. The furniture rentals used were great rustic pieces like old wooden crates, old dress trunks, rusted keys and this great wide bottom over-sized chair that looks like it came straight from the set of Alice and Wonderland. The pergola was a great accent location in front of the water for something a little different.  . . . ."

I so drool for tulle! That dress is gorgeous and I love that it's not white. GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers.

Okay, I have to be completely honest; I don't love the dress. I love the romantic roots of the dress, but not the dress. Am I just totally off base here?

The flowers, however, I adore! The colors! The feathers! Ack!
