I am so excited to share this styled shoot we planned and designed back in November and to see it on the Brides of North Texas Blog today!  I was inspired for this shoot by pinterest of all places. As I was browsing through pinterest one day, I came across this long elegant velvet dress, designed by Ralph Russo, and I knew it would be the perfect inspiration for my next styled shoot.  I was inspired by not only it’s elegance and texture, but also the striking color of the dress. I designed the shoot around the elegance of the pantone color of the year 2017 greenery, and broke up the color through with the use of gold, white, and grey, this helped create a softness and elegance that stood out against the green tones.

        The whiskey bar was a fun addition to the styled shoot and added masculine touch to the overall shoot.  How fun would this be for an actual wedding!?! I know in Texas guests would LOVE this idea!  And we had so much fun styling this with the bride’s velvet green dress, that could also be used as a bridesmaid dress for a winter wedding.  Overall I am so excited about this shoot and think it is the perfect inspiration for any greenery loving bride!
