From Monica, the photographer:
“When dreaming up our vision for this concept, we thought of two words, European and intimate. We live in a big city in the south and finding this gem of a venue was like finding a piece of Paris all the way in Houston, Texas. The venue itself is like a blank canvas. It is perfect for any bride who wants to imagine and design the wedding of their dreams. The clean colors and rich detail in the architecture made planning go smoothly and allowed us to dream up beautiful ideas and color palettes.
We were inspired by an organic farm to table styled intimate dinner with deep conversation and laughter – moments that are so personal and remembered well beyond the years to come. We chose to use colors inspired by the various and vibrant shades in figs paired with the gold tones of homemade paper from Lupine Letters. The bride’s bouquet featured white peonies, blush garden roses, café au lait dahlias, Clooney ranunculus, champagne roses, and bellflowers.
The wedding gown so flawlessly made by Tatyana Merenyuk was a classic staple for this editorial. The various details like the deep neck and a hint of leg peeking out made for a gorgeous statement and the dress simply moved like the wind.
This vision would not have been made possible without the effort of this wonderful team coming together. It is truly magical what can happen when given a blank canvas and a room full of artists.”
