Wondering how to become an Allure bride? Here’s how!
From the Bride… Our wedding took place at a historical Farm in Southern Oregon. I was going for a beautiful rustic romantic blush wedding. We incorporated blush and ivory as our primary colors. We used vintage and romantic decor to create the perfectly beautiful palette for our romantic wedding.
The morning of the wedding it was pouring down rain. My wedding stylist, Terrie Day, called and notified me to my horror that we had to put up tents. I had dreamt of my beautiful reception area under the large oak trees with cafe lights strung about in a huge canopy. I was devastated by the weather. By the time I got in the model T to be driven down to my groom for our first look at the farm the weather had changed. The day was so romantic because of the rain in the morning and the sun came out right before the ceremony. It was as if God was shining down on us!

There’s a reason that Paris is the epitome of beauty, fine art, and style; the effortless charm seeps through everything, and we wanted to capture that feel with our shoot. We styled this modern parisian shoot with a few hints of bohemian flair, and kept it light and airy with colors like cream, blush, and gold. We anchored those breezy colors with touches of black. Our gorgeous model looked Paris-ready with her polished curls and ethereal headpiece. We wanted to capture the feel of an anticipatory bride awaiting her groom on the streets of one of the most romantic cities in the world…it almost feels like you have been swept right off to parisian streets, doesn’t it?
We also added lots of tulle to keep the airy feel, and to create the feeling of being weightless and fanciful. The tulle epaulets on the dress added a bit of fairy-tale romance, and balanced out the darker elements like the black and gold centerpieces. The gently curved and horizontal bouquet was dramatic but not too polished, and we kept the makeup on our model full of pouty pinks and delicate definition.
