This weekend’s Daylight Savings change sure did a number on me, but the extra hour of sunshine (yippee!) was more than worth it. What better way to ring in the longer days of spring than with a behind-the-scenes peek at Kristin + Kincaid’s Texas wedding, courtesy of Anne Marie Photography. K + K celebrated their May nuptials with a veritable ranch-sized celebration (275 guests, y’all!) at the famous Gage Hotel that was tailor-made for this photographer bride and her ranch manager sweetheart. The Western-themed bash was offset by a bright color palette of yellows (the bridesmaids’ ruffled Bella Bridesmaid frocks were a V3 fan favorite) and green (the florals from Statue of Destin had a Wild West flair). The bride’s favorite detail? “I could not live without my dress,” Kristin gushed of her flowered Amsale gown.
We hope your Monday’s a little cheerier after seeing Lauren + Russ’ Texas wedding. Ours sure is – though that may be thanks, in part, to Emily’s birthday celebrations! Recognize the bride’s chic, structured dress with the flattering (and oh-so Southern) popped collar? Lauren wore the same Priscilla of Boston sheath that V3 cover finalist, Josh Malahy, chose for his own model. You know what they say: great minds – and beautiful brides – think alike! There are more delicious details in the magazine. Be sure to get your copy before we sell out!
Today we want to share a peek at our Rockabilly Romance shoot from V3. This fab slice of inspiration was the brainchild of Kristy Rice of Momental Designs and Caroline Vasquez of Paloma’s Nest. Fun fact? They actually hatched the initial idea when they met at our V2 release party in Atlanta in the fall of 2009!
Caroline and Kristy imagined a shoot celebrating young love and handcrafted details in the eclectic city of Austin. There’s so much more goodness in the gallery — take a look!
