Spanish Bridal Fashion

February 1, 2011

Jaclyne from Heavenly Blooms contacted me a while back to help bring this Green Wedding Shoes Cinco de Mayo inspiration board to life. After seeing John Shum’s new line of romantic Spanish inspired gowns and collaborating with many amazing vendors, we had a Spanish inspired shoot filled with succulents, a rustic ranch, colorful Jarritos sodas, papel picado, flan, pan dulce, and Mexican hot chocolate! Of course, my favorite part was shooting with a horse! We shot this Spanish Bridal Shoot at the gorgeous property at Star Ranch in Corona, CA

Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking!!!

So beautiful! I love how simple the dresses are, but still with very full skirts. Looks like an incredibly fun shoot! 🙂

This is divine…. I can’t think of a better word. Just divine!

These are stunning. At first, I thought this was a real wedding….and I was thinking to myself: WOW, I cannot imagine a better looking couple. I mean, they are stunning together. He and she are beautiful! 😉 Then i realized they are models – and rightfully so. Maybe they should get married. 😉 I loved this idea, the colors, the textures, the theme. I’m not Mexican, but I do live in Phoenix, and a lot of these ideas could be transcribed into a traditional Phoenix cultural wedding! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

This is absolutely gorgeous! You captured everything brilliantly. One of my favorite shoots!

Love you so much Stephanie, thank you for helping me style and put together this whole shoot. I tell you this all of the time, but your work is breathtakingly magical… flawless, it’s truly perfection… I am ready for the next shoot whenever you are, thread spools?? Thank you, thank you, thank you… xoxo

Thank you so much

[…] Jaclyne Breault from Heavenly Blooms contacted Jenn about bringing her inspiration board to life, and created this inspiration board to illustrate some of the other elements she wanted to incorporate. Jaclyne asked me to design the cake. I really liked the papel picado in the inspiration board, and I recreated it out of fondant using tiny cutters, cake decorating tips and various ruffle and frill cutters. I hand-cut the monogram, and sculpted the succulents out of gumpaste. Here are some other photos, including the gorgeous model, invitations by Posh Paperie, florals by Heavenly Blooms, styling by Green Wedding Shoes, and photographs by This Modern Romance. […]
