Leaving A Legacy at Aledredge House Dallas

I generally love a good photo shoot and opportunities to style pretty things are always fun. So, when Ciera of Ciera Chante Photography approached me about a shoot at the Aldredge House in Dallas, I was in! The theme was - Legacy. Specifically, how legacy impacts marriage both going in to one, and how the blessing of strong and lasting marriage leaves a legacy for the future. It was a meaningful theme and such a beautiful shoot. We wanted outdoors and of course I wanted texture. There was a vintage appeal juxtaposed with a botanical feel. My favorite was the greenhouse and botanical print sofa, I mean you just can't go wrong. Here are a few photos of our fun day.

A Pink Departure

Lately, the wedding color trends have been focused primarily on shades of blush and cream or even the punchier coral/fuchsia tones with blush and cream. These have been the go-to colors for a very good reason. It's classic, feminine and definitely a palette that is non-regrettable in 20 years. However, every now and then it's refreshing to see a departure from shades of pink. Colors are limitless and so fun to experiment with. For this particular wedding, the bride wanted a Tuscan/rustic vibe. So we combined earthy merlot shades with lavender, apricot, green, blue and champagne for a unique color spin. Succulents, herbs, thistle, and scabiosa were the main floral players. Tuscan lanterns and even an Anthropologie inspired muslin and lace arbor curtain were added for one-of-a-kind details. And, how cute is this couple :) Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!
