Marie Antoinette Inspired Bridals

With it being the week of Halloween, we thought it was appropriate to share a bride dressed up as one of our favorite classics, Marie Antoinette! Loved these playful styled bridals photographed by Megan Robinson and styled by Leslie Dawn Events! These two have produced so much fabulous work together lately that we are featuring them for the second week in a row!
Below is a the inspiration Leslie shared with us! Wouldn’t this concept look great on a wedding?!
“Marie Antoinette’s carefree attitude and unapologetic femininity inspired this
girly bridal inspiration shoot. We incorporated soft pink and pastel blue to reflect a fun and almost mischievous spunk. The whole feel of the shoot was to be airy and lighthearted. We wanted it to feel decadent from the lavish desserts to the Bride dripping in jewelry. With opulent dress details and desserts with crystals and lace, we hoped to capture the beauty and extravagance that pairs so well with Sleepy Ridge.”

Fall Featured Wedding {Natural History Museum}

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We always love bringing you a little taste of the real weddings that happen here in Utah. With so many unique couple and styles out there it’s always so amazing to see what choices people make on their big day and we especially love seeing their personalities shine through. Today’s wedding feature is courtesy of Travis J. Photography shot at the Natural History Museum. We are huge fans of the way Travis shoots and his style. Just love the way he captured this couple in such an artistic way and incorporating the gorgeous setting of the Natural History Museum.  All the lines and angles and modern details are so incredible and this venue is what became a big focal point! And of course we have to mention the amazing dinosaurs details… especially on the cake!

Tibble Fork Formals {Emily & Landan}

Emily & Landan are about the sweetest couple ever and that was captured in their Autumn formal session. Alyssia B, did a wonderful job catching their love on camera. Landan is a fire fighter and Emily had a long summer waiting for him, since he has been gone for weeks at a time fighting wild fires. Luckily, they will finally be tying the knot next month.  Emily’s dress is from Fantasy Bridal, and her hair was done by Aubrie Mooso at pro Do.  The gorgeous flowers held some sentimental value due to the fact Landan’s mother made the bouquet.2014-10-20_126 2014-10-20_107 2014-10-20_108 2014-10-20_109 2014-10-20_110 2014-10-20_111 2014-10-20_112 2014-10-20_114 2014-10-20_117 2014-10-20_119 2014-10-20_120 2014-10-20_121 2014-10-20_124 2014-10-20_129 2014-10-20_131 2014-10-20_132 2014-10-20_134 2014-10-20_135 2014-10-20_137 2014-10-20_138 2014-10-20_143 2014-10-20_145 2014-10-20_148 2014-10-20_149

Engagements in the Aspens {Alex & Katelyn}

Picking an outfit for your engagement session can definitely be one of the most stressful part of pictures, but it doesn’t have to be!  We loved the way Alex and Katelyn coordinated their outfits in their gorgeous engagements photographed by Valory Jean Photography. We just have a few words of advice when picking out engagement outfits!
1. Try not to be too matchy, but definitely be coordinated! If you’re wearing something fancy, make sure to have your gent’s outfit be fancy as well! Pick colors that go well together, but are different.
2. Avoid logos, or busy patterns. We love the pattern on Katelyn’s dress in these photos. It’s subtle, but adds texture and interest to help her stand out! Adding jewelry, hats, suspenders, or scarves is a good way to help make your outfit feel more put together!
3. Make sure the outfit you choose is something you feel comfortable in. You should be able to walk around and hold on to each other without having to constantly pull and tug! Maybe even take a few test photos on your own camera the day before!
4. Last of all, don’t stress about it! If you’re stressed, go back to your closet and pick out something you love wearing and figure out how to make it work!

Flower Recipe Friday with Studio Stems

We here at UBB love recipe Friday’s, we love flowers, and we also know you do too! {Thanks to all your feedback!} We are quickly headed into the colder months of the year and that typically brings a change of color palette, this year we anticipate that we will see a lot of jewel tones, moody hues, and unique varieties of blooms through the winter season. Studio Stems joins us today with a look at a simple and moody centerpiece along with its components! Thanks to Lindsey Orton for photography.

Thanks to UBB for a fun year of recipe’s! This will be my last for the 2014 year but I sure have enjoyed sharing with you readers various bloom and foliage choices used in arrangements I have made.

Metallics remain on trend but I think we are going to see a shift from gold back into silver and pewter tones as winter comes on and as trends change and shape up in 2015. This textured urn bowl is a fav among our clients here at Studio Stems so we decided to use it for our recipe arrangement. One of my favorite roses for a little bit of mood seeping through a lighter tone is the “early gray” rose, it has just the right amount of language coming from its depth of color. The deep rich tone of the dahlia used here adds even more depth, the “piano” garden rose brings in a brighter jewel tone of red adding some interest, the red magnolia leaf ties the two red tones together. Without an added color this arrangement would read maybe a little holiday with the red, the lighter tone of rose, and all the foliage, but it is completely changed by adding the delicate light blue tone of the delphinium, just goes to show how drastically something can evolve with the addition of one element!

Southwest Wedding Inspiration

We have quite a treat for you today! We were dying over these images captured by Megan Robinson and styled by Leslie Dawn Events! We thought this inspiration would be incorporated perfectly into a fall wedding. Leslie shared with us a little bit of her vision:
“I loved the concept of a rugged Wild West event mixed with the beauty of a stylish and memorable wedding. With the incredible scenery at Bluesky ranch and the beautiful horses that roamed around the large barn , it was easy to bring this vision to life. We mixed dark brown, tan, and brick colors of the desert with fun pops of teal into our table set up to create the old west feel with modern details. The beautiful horses adorned with incredible blooms kept it rustic and incorporated a soft side to this otherwise masculine theme.”
Now feast your eyes on these beautiful images!

Vintage Bike Groomals

This fall groomal shoot by Jessica Sue Anderson is absolutely lovely! We love the 1940′s feel with fun props like classic Schwinn bikes, a vintage suitcase, and a simple yet beautiful autumn seasonal bouquet by Just Add Flowers. There really is something so dreamy and romantic about shooting in the autumn and that warm light coming through on some of the shots is just perfection!

Utah Fall Bridals {Kate and Manoraj}

This is a wonderful Fall Bridal session with Kate and Manoraj.  The photographer, LeeYen Lobendahn, made this session come to life and each picture depicts how much they love each other.
They decided to exchange letters to spend a few minutes reminding themselves of how it all started before going back to the whirlwind of wedding planning. This special moment is beautifully captured in these photographs.

Fall Engagements {Cole & Sarah}

Sarah wore a gorgeous emerald dress from Rent the Runway in the first part of her engagement pictures by Jessica White Photography and we were completely smitten. The emerald dress brought romance and drama to their engagements and then they went casual for a fun mountain picnic! We adore these!
