Set amongst the bustling city of Houston, Texas, THE CREATIVE CHATEAU is a hidden gem for this sophisticated, yet natural editorial by Houston wedding photographer MARNI WISHART, which was originally planned for a destination in the South of France. With 2020 bans on travel, finding beauty close to home and celebrating on an intimate scale has ushered in a new golden age of thoughtful and meaningful celebrations. With concept and florals by THE PETALER FLORAL & EVENTS CO, this inspiration combines the elegance of gilded detailing and French architecture with organic notes drawn from “jardins” overflowing with dahlias, roses and pollinators. Working with seasonal fresh cut blooms, Elizabeth expertly arranged an environment as if she were recreating a moment of discovering butterflies floating through the flowers. The table is set for a meal shared with the couple’s nearest and dearest. The bride’s yellow J. MENDEL gown combines a sense of whimsy with impeccable high fashion and is accented with handmade floral crowns from ERIN RHYNE as the finishing touch.
