I was approached by Rachel Hicks with Rachel Meagan Photography last year to do a kinfolk inspired shoot last February. And to be honest at the time, because I guess I was living in a hole, I did not even know what kinfolk was lol. However, as I started researching, I became quickly inspired by its bohemian nature and dark color schemes. We quickly decided that we wanted the dining experience to feel like a setting that would be both modern & elegant, while also casual, and realized that White Rock Lake in Dallas TX would be the perfect location for the shoot.
One of our favorite characteristic of the landscape at White Rock Lake was the large tree where we decided to have the ceremony. I mean WOW the light coming through the trees was just breathtaking and was a big inspiration for both of us. We also wanted to create a comfortable yet elegant reception space. So I decided to make a tablescape that was low to the ground and with modern metal seating with Mexican blankets. One of my favorite aspects of the tablescape is the black porcelain china and tapered candles. I love the pop of black and how it contrasts with the white and gold element throughout the table. Overall I am so excited with how the entire shoot came together from the romantic elements of the bride's dress, the yumminess of the sun in all these pics, and even the lush food display with a chocolate naked cake. This kinfolk shoot at White Rock Lake in Dallas TX is sure to inspire the modern bohemian bride!
