Bianca and Vincent got engaged, and just one week later tied the knot as snow fell in west Texas – you heard that right! But although their wedding was very special for them, they never really had the time to take in their day. So a very talented group of vendors teamed up to recreate that rare snowy wedding day with this gorgeous styled shoot at the White Sands Monument in New Mexico. Every detail was perfectly captured by Vanessa Anne Photography.
Bianca and Vincent looked like a king and queen sitting on vintage rattan peacock chairs. And don’t get me started on the goblets of wine and deep color of the wooden table that pops against the white sand. Between the flowers, candles, and sensual fruits, these magnificent tablescapes were giving me major Game of Thrones meets Thanksgiving in New England vibes… and as strange as that sounds, it’s my new favorite aesthetic.
Desert Modern Florals stole the show with their rich and vibrant arrangements from the bouquet to the chairs and table décor… quintessential autumn feels. Like, really, how did a bouquet just make me want to put on an oversized turtleneck, grab a PSL and read by a fire? Oh, and the cake even got its own flowers! This naked drip cake by Honey Bee Cakes is overflowing with decadence – and that sewing machine it sits on? That was a gift to Bianca from her 100-year-old great grandmother before she passed. What a beautiful way to not just include, but put a spotlight on such a sentimental heirloom.
