Fine Art Bride Styling

We had so much fun helping  New Favorite Day Event Planning put together this fine art bride look, and could not be more stunned by the gorgeous inspiration shoot she put together! The lovely palette of emerald and jade is a nod to the heritage of San Francisco, and we love the effortless Bay Area style that she incorporated into this mix of luxe and organic decor!

We approach styling an inspiration shoot the same way we approach consulting with one of our brides - who is she and what is she looking for? In this case, our 'bride' envisioned something romantic, flowing, and with a slightly non-traditional edge. The Style 8710 from Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige has been a favorite with our Haute Brides and perfectly fit the bill for this lovely inspiration! We wanted to keep the luxe and organic vibe when it came to her accessories, and had the best time playing with our hand crafted bridal jewelry to find the perfect fit! 

We picked our T1017, a gold headpiece with crystal vines, porcelain flowers, and glittering crystals as the perfect showpiece to pair with a wedding dress adorned in gorgeous floral lace! The slightly whimsical lines of the tiara were a gorgeous match for the natural flower arrangements designed by Milsom and Bloom, and we love how Makeup by Quis used it to accent the bride's romantic chignon! The swept back hairstyle showcased our EC640 crystal drop earrings beautifully, for a hint of sparkle! The illusion neckline and lace cap sleeves needed no necklace, so we finished off the look with our RB1009 crystal belt!

Shay Mooney and Hannah Billingsley's Country Perfect Wedding

It's not every day that we get to be a part of a wedding for country royalty, so we were thrilled when Hannah Billingsley chose our jewelry for her wedding to Dan + Shay's Shay Mooney! This sweet couple tied the knot at the Mooney family farm in Arkansas. The beauty queen bride looked dazzling in a Rita Vinieris gown from Posh Bridal Nashville, where she fell in love with our dainty drop earrings and crystal bracelet!

Courtney and Daniel - Modern Southern Charm Wedding

We are so excited to see what 2017 has in store for our brides, and we are kicking off the year with a look back at some of our most stylish and unique Haute Brides who were married in 2016! First up is Courtney and Daniel, who stole our hearts with their Southern Charm wedding with lots of modern style. Courtney wore the fabulous Behati dress by Hayley Paige from Jennifer's Bridal. The amazing geometric pattern of the dress and the intricate beading on the back inspired some of the details that made their day so special and unique, including the custom jewelry that we designed just for her!

The rustic surroundings of Montfair Resort Farm in Virginia inspired Courtney and planner Jessica of It's Your Day Weddings & Events to embrace natural beauty and keep things simple when it came to the style of the big day. The organic ceremony decor showcased the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains as Courtney and Daniel exchanged their heartfelt vows. Blakemore's Flowers incorporated natural greenery into the delicate bouquets carried by Courtney and her bridesmaids, as well as the garlands and hanging vines that complemented the woodsy decor of their ceremony. 

The geometric pattern and intricate beading of Courtney's Behati gown popped up throughout her decor, including an edible recreation on their gorgeous cake from Bijou's Sweet Treats LLC! She wanted jewelry that played off the unique styling of her gown, so we worked closely with the consultants at Jennifer's Bridal to create something just for her. Including the white alabaster beading from the back of her dress into her earrings and bracelet took some of our favorite designs and turned them into something brand new! We also worked the pattern into her custom headband to add the final touch. Courtney wasn't the only one who got creative for their wedding day - groom Daniel was just as hands on, making their centerpieces, wood round card box, and leaf escort cards!
