ornament-2Simply glorious. This is the type of photo shoot that takes me to a dreamy land I just love. From the flowers to the cake to the pristine location, everything about this shoot is stunning. And the couple? Well, they are a real-life duo, and they are a so good looking. When you take a beautiful couple, a striking color palette, and you put them all in an equally beautiful setting, the results are show-stopping. Photographer, Arpit Mehta did a fantastic job planning and photographing this enchanting love story.

“Winter brings along with it a time of change. The temperatures are cooler, the leaves fall, and the birds migrate south. All of these work together to create a beautiful atmosphere for a winter California wedding. Inspiration struck when visiting this hidden gem in the foothills of Orange County. This resort and zoological garden, Rancho Las Lomas, is nestled under an umbrella of oak and sycamore trees, a wonderland that immediately set the tone for a truly enchanting love story.

Disney’s trend of turning animated classics into live movies has led today’s brides to find themselves enthralled by those grand romances, and so we arrived at “Storybook Love” as our theme. Just like turning the pages of your favorite fairytale, our hope was to bring a fairytale romance to live. Highlighting the best of nature was our chosen color palette of plums, fuchsias, navy, and earth tones found amongst our florals. The flowers included anemones, calla lilies, spray roses, straw flowers, and seeded eucalyptus, all mesmerizing the soul and looking reminiscent of a bouquet hand-picked from some enchanted forest.

The bridal gown had to reflect the dreams of the young maiden imagining her wedding day, her transition from princess to queen. Enter the ivory beaded dress that added a warming touch to the tones. In the evening, our bride wore a cropped fur jacket, an ode to the wooded backdrop. Meanwhile, her maid-of-honor was sweetly suited in an overskirt. She, too, donned a fur covering that brought airiness to her wardrobe in the early dusk. Now, while the decision to include a flower girl is not always an easy one, we love the littlest of Pixies that are wildly unpredictable. She captured everyone’s hearts–including the ones behind the lenses. And since there is no rule (spoken or otherwise) that they must match the bride in color or style, we opted to dress the little Miss in a blush frock, accessorized with an oversized headband.”
