I really enjoy photographing boho-luxe, rustic, feminine and chic styled Weddings…BUT…finding the perfect location, venue and vendors to pull off this particular look for your ‘Big Day’ is by no means easy. Those who have already begun their search for such places and people are no doubt nodding their head in agreement, because yes, while we all know that they must exist, it isn’t as straight forward as typing ‘boho-luxe’ + ‘wedding spaces’ + ‘amazing vendors’ into the Google engine search bar. Well, until today it wasn’t that easy anyway. Yep…let’s call this an on-going intervention of the best kind. The kind where I will continue to share my love of ‘Pinterest’ with you to help get those creative styling juices flowing, and the kind where I will, as of my next post, begin sharing with you the names of places and people in the Wedding Industry that I know you will love!
In the meantime I have tried to define exactly what Boho-luxe, Rustic, Feminine and Chic Wedding Styling is, and likewise I have included a few inspiration boards to further illustrate what a Boho-luxe/Rustic/Feminine and Chic Wedding looks like.
DEFINE LOOSELY WHAT THE WORD ‘BOHO-LUXE’ MEANS IN TERMS OF WEDDING STYLING:
The word ‘bohemian’ refers to a vagabond or a gypsy who lives their lives disregarding conventional codes of behavior. In terms of Wedding Styling, what this means is that it’s more then okay to break away from the norms of a traditional wedding. It’s an opportunity to be original and to have a wedding that truly reflects you, your unique relationship with your partner and your sense of style. Elegance of course is the key to success when it comes to styling a Boho-Luxe Wedding, so let your imagination be your guide.
