Inspired by an unexpected combination of elements – Summertime, Texas, and a sweet, prickly pear cactus.
A trend on the rise: the use of instant cameras and backdrops. This idea has been around for a while, but it has really picked up the pace lately. With the popularity of Instagram a lot more brides are going for laid back, intimate affairs which is why the idea of a picnic style table seemed so right for this shoot. Complete with geo rock candle holders and natural elements like peaches and pears this table really set the scene for an organic summer feel.
This fun handmade honeycomb backdrop by Bee Lavish Vintage Rentals was a great statement piece to stage the ceremony site vignette.
Bee Lavish Vintage Rentals also had the perfect pieces to create a laid-back garden party feast + we were so inspired by this look (which could work great for a bridal shower, summer BBQ or sunday brunch).
Perhaps one of my favorite parts of this shoot was the prickly pear cactus margarita hand crafted by a husband and wife team at She + Him who set out to create a unique bartending experience for couples by making drinks that are personal to them.
