Whimsical Bohemian Nuptial at the Nella Terra Cellars
I styled this editorial in an effort of bringing a pop of color to the Bohemian themed Earthy Palette. I incorporated pastel green inspired by the Pistachio Flavor that sometimes model the hue of the nut, a fair tan, too, thus making for an ideal BOHO Theme.
I brought together a team of wedding professionals in order to create an outcome that was not only unique but whimsical in its own right. After a month of brainstorming and scouting for the right venue, we landed on this beautiful site Nella Terra Cellars in the heart of Sunol. It made a perfect setting especially with the vineyards being in its full bloom at this time of the year & serving as an intimate setting enabling the photographers to capture some exclusive, jaw dropping shots in the Golden Hour! The photos showcase this most romantic journey of ‘deeply in love’ couple who wanted to keep their wedding simple & blissful with inviting just the bride’s best friend to their wedding affair!
The wedding dress was a Blush by Hayley Paige gown by La Soie Bridal. Ivory strapless A-line bridal gown with English net ruched sweetheart bodice, lace beaded trim at natural waist, handkerchief layered skirt with chapel train making a perfect fit for the Boho Theme. The rhinestone studded heels were a Jennifer Lopez in Blush.
Bride’s Jewelry were the stunning Swarovski Crystals by Atzi Bridal. A trio of beautifully faceted stones in light silk and vintage rose with gold tone - plated brass, added a touch of layered glamour around the neck along with the gorgeous light silk bracelet contributing to the subtle statement of a bohemian beauty.
The Groom’s Tux was Allure Tan Slim Fit provided by Tuxedo Wearhouse which was accessorized with suspenders, Tie, cuff links & pocket squares keeping the Pistachio flavor alive. The tan Allure tux is a powerful and popular style that caters most directly to daytime garden and destination weddings.
Jessica Han of bloomsgiving.com provided the bouquet, boutonniere & some great props like dreamcatchers, menu for the sweet heart table, laser cut signs & cake stand that added just that right hint of magic in bringing out the essence of a bohemian fancy that a couple had dreamed of. The dreamcatchers with flowy ribbons on the branches of a tree, swaying with the wind in the backdrop while the couple falls in love is truly mesmerizing to watch.
The furniture rentals, props & catering for the sweetheart table was provided by Palmdale Estates. You will notice in the photos how the theme comes alive with those little details around the table like the bird cage, succulents, candles & easel that says ‘Happily Ever After Starts Here’
Two lead photographers,Dawn Elizabeth & Ashish Tibrewal worked hard all day long making sure each segment is captured in its best possible form, from getting ready to the couple’s golden hour shots, every detail was shot picturesquely. The third shooter, Nathalie Bize came to capture the couple in the sunset hour to add another gorgeous dimension to their love story.
The cherry on the cake, the real stealer of the show was the video, from our “drone man’ (as I like to call him!) Doug Hetzler who captured the couple’s romance through his magnificent drone flying above them while falling in love and making their dreams come alive. Watch the video to see the magic unfold…
Lastly, yours truly, the bridal hair & makeup, not only spearheaded this editorial with her vision but also made sure that from the bride’s hair to her makeup everything complimented to the bohemian vibe. The messy fish tail braid with cascading petals through strands of her hair, cute little rose buds & hair vine ornamented the hair style in the most ethereal form. The makeup was natural, clean & seamless with the eyes adding the exact pistachio flavor to the entire look & charm of the wedding that she had envisioned.
This shoot makes for a great inspiration for the couples looking for a perfect intimate bohemian wedding dripping in love with a twist of pistachio flavor to it ;-)!
And ofcourse! A very big and most special Thank You to our drop dead gorgeous Bride, Karly Falkenberg and handsome groom, Adam Neisheim who gave us such a memorable experience to remember by putting in so much hard work and brining their best foot forward for this Bridal Styled Shoot!
