A Vintage Glam - Rustic Chic Wedding : Inspirational Photo Shoot

I was thrilled when Suzanne of Suzanne Karp Photography sent over today's photo shoot for me to take a peek at. According to Suzanne, "wedding coordinator and stylist Leah Bertoli has all of the vintage-glam, rustic-chic wedding decor a bride could ever want, from mason jars with chalkboard labels to chandeliers...vintage picture frames, old suitcases, Shabby Chic linens, you name it!" So Leah and Suzanne decided to create a rustic yet elegant wedding that was set-up at Deloach Winery in Santa Rosa. It was a gorgeous Spring afternoon and Suzanne's cousin, Maggie, was their beautiful model. Deloach Winery is a lovely location for weddings with their sprawling vineyards, an organic garden, huge grassy lawns and a perfectly appointed guest house for the bride and groom. Suzanne says, "the photo shoot was a dream - a warm sunny day, a gorgeous model and beautiful vignettes to capture!".

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not usually a fan of baby's breath {likely because it makes me sneeze and causes my mom to have an asthma attack}, but I'm loving it in this bride's bouquet and the floral arrangements for the table {shown below}. It fits perfectly with the style of this shoot. Plus, the baby's breath arrangements are kept to a smaller size - often you see huge displays of baby's breath. But, since it's a flower that creates a big "poof of white", you really don't need much of it to make a statement.

Ornate picture frames will always be in style in my book :) And, they're the cutest props!
