If you're looking for bright pops of color on your wedding day this is about a good as you can get!  Just look at all the bright reds, pinks, lavendars and purples blended together to make a real berrylicious palette. Sara Miller of Sara Elizabeth Photography teamed up again with some great wedding pros and a real live couple to create this Southern charm against the bucolic backdrop of The Barn at Manor in Neunan, Georgia.  Said design and decor expert, Shayla Clay on her blog about this shoot:"Janell, of Beyond the I Do, wanted our shoot to be “different” and we both were tired of seeing the ever so lovely light olive that was going around in the bridal world. I’ve always wanted to do a deep emerald shoot, so I took this opportunity and ran with it! We decided to pair the emerald with a deep berry with hints of blush in the florals, invitations, and place cards. With such two bold colors, we needed to pair it with an element that was light and sparkly. I initially thought of rose gold, but wasn’t sure how that would look aesthetically with the emerald, so we opted for yellow gold. . . . "

 . . . . .The invitations were crafted beautifully with berry colored calligraphy and gold foil leaf details. We added a gold wax seal for the envelope to add an element of sophistication. We carried that same calligraphy onto an acrylic menu card, which was coupled with a large emerald banana leaf for each guest. The florals were absolutely to die for; the combination of pinks, berries and blush just oozed dreamy."

This is a very special styled shoot by Dutch photographer, Marije van der Leeuw of Madame Poppy,  shot 45 minutes from scenic Marrakesh.  The locale: Kabah Bab Ourika, a villa/resort in the Atlas Mountains overlooking the breathaking Ourika Valley, is a perfect spot for a destination wedding and while you're at it, why not stay on for the honeymoon?  You can't beat the romantic splendor and unmatched scenery of the Moroccan Mountains.  Says Marije: "A stunning view makes a true inspiration for your wedding.  For the styling, we have used pastel colors fused with rustic touches. Marrakesh is a perfect place to get married. Kasbah Bab Ourika with their gorgeous backdrop, excellent food, and unique ambiance was the ideal spot to host our Portfolio boot camp, a workshop for wedding photographers. "

Loving the concept for this styled shoot by one of our fave photographers, Ariel Miles. Teaming up with a florist and three recently married brides, Lauren Miller of Heritage Floral Design, created these great posies to pair up with each bride's dress and sense of style. Says Ariel: "Lauren had the vision to show three different brides and how these beautiful arrangements can make each bride diverse without a changed location. The only contrast was that they all wore their own wedding dresses, and had their hair newly styled. But the feel of every bride was different with each bouquet and I think the vendors achieved that goal successfully!"
