Crimson and Candlelight

From the planner/stylist – “When I we set out to create this moody bohemian shoot I had many ideas going thru my head. I knew I wanted a unique location, a beautiful red head and a very cool mobile bar. I also had a macrame backdrop that I just HAD to use and so the inspiration for this shoot was born. I chose Strawberry Pines, a wedding venue located south of San Antonio, Texas with a refurbished 100 year old barn and dozens of pine trees that flood the main grounds, yes pine trees in Texas who knew! I also contacted a dear friend with a super trendy horse trailer re-purposed into a cool Mobile Bar, not many out there. I then reached out to a friend; a pale skinned, beautiful deep red head of Puerto Rican descent who travels the world in her spare time. Once I had these friends on board I sought out the most amazing, hard working vendors I know. Everyone was eager and excited to work on this project. I wanted the mood for this project to have a Winter feel which is hard to capture since we're in South Texas because I wanted to utilize the colors found at this time of year; the deep reds, golds & greens. Together we completed this look with crushed velvet draping, gorgeous fresh flowers, a delicious cake made with real wine and dark chocolate. The Mobile Bar Service created a custom Sangria, the Calligrapher traveled over 2 hours to bring in her beautiful custom stationary, place cards, mirror and canvas banner. The bridal boutique provided us with a beautiful 2 piece dress and veil, the hair and make up artist added her beautiful touches and our amazing photographer captured every detail of this beautifully styled shoot. We all worked diligently and seamlessly to create this project. We laughed and listened to Country Music as we worked because we're in Texas of course! As we were setting up the lounge we witnessed the butterflies at the bar sipping the sweet Sangria and fluttering around all of the amazing florals. This was the highlight of our day!”
