Set at a castle in Austria, we are living in a dream with this stunning editorial from Liliia Chuba Photography. The trio of greenery arches is the kind of lush abundance we really need right now. It creates such a striking look inside the opulent estate. With its Edwardian style, the ultra romantic billowy sleeve gown is sure to make your vintage heart fall in love. The entire look is so effortlessly elegant.
This beautiful editorial took place in private castle in Austria. It was inspired by natural and vintage architecture of the venue and Austrian love to music. The Musician and his Muse – the main theme of this shooting.

We’ve fallen into an absolute dream with this stunning seaside bridal portrait session from Krust Photography. The ocean breeze had these gorgeous tulle gowns dancing in the sunlight to create an ethereal look you can’t help but swoon over. The contrast of the feminine gowns with the rocky coast makes for some breath-taking portraits, so get your pin button ready!
I have always been inspired by the controversial beauty of Southern Africa’s coastline. Rugged rocks set side by side with the soft pastels of sunset, touching the shimmering waters of Cape town. It creates a delicate beauty, forged and formed by abrupt forces of nature. This was the inspiration for our Seascape styled bridal session. We decided to use the secluded beach “Bakoven” nestled at the foot of table Mountain, just outside Cape Town, to compliment the mood of exclusivity and intimacy. On this side of Table Mountain the sun sets over the ocean, basking rocks and waves in the last glistening rays of sunlight, the perfect venue for a private elopement.

It doesn’t get more Americana than a retro elopement in Las Vegas! Rachel and Matt attend Viva Las Vegas, a rockabilly festival, every April in Las Vegas. This time they decided to secretly elope while there and brought Andi Artigue Photography along to capture the the fun!
We really loved that the day was just for the two of us. We took our time eating breakfast together and getting ready. There were some hiccups along the way, but everything turned out perfectly in the end. Having a big space in the Neon Museum all to ourselves was really special. We love the history and all things kitsch, so the backdrop of elaborate Las Vegas fading neon signs was perfect. We absolutely couldn’t have picked a better spot to get married.
I (Rachel) always knew that I wanted to wear vintage. I’d had the perfect powder blue 1940’s two-piece ensemble sitting in my closet for ages, just waiting for the right occasion. Matt wanted to find something that coordinated well but didn’t scream “traditional wedding.” We both love how everything turned out.
Just remember that your wedding should be about you, not about pleasing other people. Of course it’s important to make sure your loved ones are comfortable, but those who really love you back will just be happy to celebrate you on your special day. We held a wedding reception months after our elopement, where we fed vegan food (our personal diets) to a crowd of meat-eaters and everyone ended up loving it. Do what makes you happy.
