Hi darlings, this is Dani from Dear Lovers! To celebrate the fresh new year, I decided to host a styled bridal shoot inspired by romantic, European beauty. I envisioned a film shoot that was organic and whimsical, soft and romantic, and truly dreamy and timeless. Naturally, I’m in love with blush tones, wind, soft tulle, and spring florals, and I wanted to curate a setting and bring those visions to life in a beautiful and fine art Southern California venue.
After weeks of searching, I am so grateful to have found a collection of talented vendors, whose creations blended together so beautifully in Ramona’s stunning Milagro Winery. The Winery blossomed with the greenest olive tree groves, which shimmered with silver undertones and created the sweetest atmosphere. In the foreground, our bride, Becka, wore a wonderful dress by Flora and golden floral headpiece, provided by my favorite San Diego bridal shop, The Dress Theory. Her dress dawned the softest lace and a great, magical train, and complemented Kasia Jewelry’s ensemble of custom rings and necklaces. For our stationary, Melissa designed the most gorgeous set, filled with charcoal-illustrated florals, the most delicate paper, and gorgeous typography!
I am thrilled to release this collection of images that came together so beautifully on this sunny, January afternoon. I hope it inspires some creativity in your wedding planning!
