Back in October, we did a stylized shoot with a lot of awesome vendors! The theme was Rustic Couture and the color scheme was Tiffany blue, whites and silvers. We met up with aka photographs and headed out to Karnes Stables for the shoot on a gorgeous October Sunday.
Most of the furniture for the shoot was provided by Karnes, but we did get chairs delivered from Black Tie Rentals to fit the occasion, and they looked amazing with white tulle bows for our ceremony.
Our model Jessica had her hair and make up done by LAC Make Up Art and LG Hair Artistry and boy, did they do a great job! It only helps that Jessica is drop dead gorgeous on her own. After we got set up, we slipped her into a Badgley Mischka dress from Malindy Elene Bridal and started snapping some shots! Jessica’s boyfriend Evan came along to be our groom and they are one good looking couple for sure!
Karnes has acres of space, and we utilized a lot of it! We did shots in their barn, in various pastures, at their ceremony space and with a lot of the animals they have on site. It was a fun shoot and I can only imagine how fun a wedding would be here, given all the options they have.
We set up a bar in the back corner with signature blue cocktails to match the theme:
and used an antique dresser as our cake table for our beautiful cake from Sweet Tweets Cakery with favors scattered about:
Our reception was set up inside the barn with white tablecloths, Tiffany blue damask runners and candlebras for that couture touch:
After we were done with the ceremony and reception spaces, we moved outside for more location photos around the property.
We had a great time working with some great vendors and can’t wait to work with them all again soon. For the rest of the photos (there were over 160!) check out our Facebook album!
