Layers of You

Amorology

Today featured on Green Wedding Shoes is our photoshoot with Feather and Stone Photography!  For this shoot we were inspired by the natural array of deep colors and the beauty of an onion's skin where layers upon layers are peeled away to reveal something raw and equally beautiful within.  Textures of earthy clay and torn edged paper were used with Lovely Paper Things who created the gorgeous invitations inspired by the rings of an onion.  Also inspired by the beauty of layering, our bride wore the calypso nightfall Mywony gown blanketed with dark layers of of tulle - enough to get lost in!  Amy Clarke took our model's look from deep shades to natural as she painted her lips in a dark stain and pulled back to a lighter more nude natural state again to allude to moving toward the center of her essence.

Our tabletop was laden with rich textures and spices with floral arrangements that flowed throughout the space by Running Wild and alluded to the soft colors and texture of onion skin.  Organic textures of ceramic plates and dyed linens from Hostess Haven were set to offer a more relaxed lounge vibe with our high and low dining table combination and rentals from Witty Rentals.  The dark and moody backdrop from Back Up Backdrops help set the tone.  Guest names and seating assignments were thoughtfully pinned into onion bulbs and Hey There Cupcake! created the perfect cake to compliment the layering in deep indigo and creamy fondant.  Naturally, just as expected all this onion-inspired pretty, was enough to bring us to tears!

What's In Our File: Maria + Oscar

Amorology

You may have caught a couple of snaps on our Instagram of our couple Maria and Oscar's wedding day in Palm Springs, but before we share a little more from their wedding we thought it might be fun to take you behind the scenes!  

One of our favorite ways to get the design process started after we've met with our couple is to create a vision board.  Vision boards help us develop our concept and share with our couples the key elements that we would suggest using to really create a one of kind personalized unique design for their story.  Each couple gets their own board, and like snowflakes - no two are alike! 

Maria and Oscar's love story is one for the books.  Ten years after dating briefly in high school they reconnected, dated for seven months and knew they didn't want to spend any more time apart so they secretly eloped!  They kept this secret for five whole years before finally sharing it with their friends and family.  We really wanted to capture that romance on their wedding day, so we decided to mix elements that played to Maria's love for both her whimsical and bohemian side while also giving a nod to the desert landscape where their wedding would take place.  To bring the romance, we loved the idea of mixing moody deep shades of burgundy and wine watercolors with earthy tones and textures layered upon clean creamy whites.  Adding just the right amount of elegance to their table settings, we were inspired by gold metallic elements such as goblets and flatware and suggested custom Moroccan fabric runners that could add an additional depth to the design!  For our dessert loving duo, we had big plans for this course at their wedding that gave a nod to their love of sweets and Oscar's career as a police officer.  Can you guess where that took us?  

We can't wait to share how we incorporated even more personal elements from Maria and Oscar's love story into their wedding day.  Be sure to check back soon!

Engaging: Megan + Tyler

Amorology

Megan and Tyler's wedding day is now only a month away and we can't wait to help this gorgeous couple say "I do!" in front of all of their friends and loved ones.  Our lovely couple's style is the perfect combination of classic while staying on trend, and we've got a day that is a mix of fun and elegance in store for them.  

Megan a farmer's daughter, and Tyler a city boy, met in college.  Both share an appreciation for getting a good night's sleep (and maybe a midday nap), so when they first started dating Megan developed adorable detective like tactics to see if Tyler was in town for the weekend when he was busy taking a nap.  Just wait and see how we plan on incorporating elements of the beginning of their love story at their wedding!

What we love most about Megan and Tyler is the deep love that they have for their family and how much they value spending time with them.  They truly are the perfect pair who compliment one another beautifully.  Megan describes Tyler as her sense of calmness when things get crazy and the person who helps bring her out of shell.  Tyler admires her sense of loyalty and they way she's always by his side ready to take on whatever life throws at them.  Together they help one another become the best person they can be and we're thrilled to play a part in helping them go from engaged to married!
