Today's feature by OLIVIA RICHARDS might have started as an inspiration shoot but it ended on the most romantic note with a surprise proposal - well a surprise for the bride-to-be who thought she was simply modeling for the day!
Inspired by the natural ebb & flows of the rolling hills at REINSTEIN RANCH in Livermore, stylist BARI ELEXA EVENTS designed an abstract styled shoot with a lot of movement, texture, and organic elements. The main inspiration was a black and white marble pattern paired with a dusty rose pop to bring in the rustic feel of the ranch. "Texture played a big role in our design aesthetic, and was brought to life through our velvet table linen and our grooms velvet jacket from THE BLACK TUX. We wanted the shoot to have an edgy undertone to it that incorporated unique pieces such as our custom laser cut chargers from BLUSH TYPE DESIGN and in the lounge area, a cascading waterfall flower arrangement by Aubriana Kasper with THE BLOOMERY CO. Aubriana also designed the bride's bouquet and the tablescape centerpiece to incorporate lots of dusty rose coloured florals and a very organic, natural flowing shape. Elements of black tied into the shoot with the flatware, our grooms tux, and our invitation suite. ELBOWGREASE DESIGN created a custom floral abstract painted backdrop for our ceremony that tied everything together. The colours, the floral pattern, the natural movement in the wind, it was a perfect scene as the sun was setting and our couple said their "I dos"."
