styled wedding shoot: navajo-inspired intimate desert ceremony

I am so in love with this wedding inspiration shoot! The idea, styling and photos come from MegRuth. Featuring feathers, ombre and succulents, this is a very on trend wedding concept, I think. And it even uses a super trendy, up-and-coming area of Vegas as the location – the Arts District, downtown.

This is the gorgeous invitation suite created by SHE Paperie.

THOSE LASHES! Lengthened and emphasized by Ciao Bella Studio and Your Beauty Call, respectively.

I love the idea of the wedding blanket ceremony being woven into the ceremony. It’s a lovely tradition, it makes for amazing photos and is an instant heirloom.

I am obsessed with ombre and dip dying to begin with, so I went nuts when I saw this cake. It’s a desert sunset cake by Gimme Some Sugar.

You can see more photos of this shoot on Meg’s blog, and also in the fabulous Style Me Pretty feature here! She even shared some how-tos for lots of the DIY elements that were in this shoot.

desert flower photo shoot

This dreamy, inspired bridal shoot comes from GabyJ Photo. It features a gorgeous model against the natural splendor of Red Rock Canyon. The fuzzy little cholla cacti and the light add texture – it’s all so stunning! A succulent bouquet from I Do Wedding Flowers and … SWOON! I’m in love.

An “Amelie” Inspired Wedding Shoot {Red Rock Country Club}

This inspiration wedding shoot from The Emerics* is nothing less than gorgeous. And imaginative! I love the film “Amelie”, and I had never considered intertwining elements from the film in the way they did. If you’re a fan of “Amelie”, you’ll recognize some things from the movie in the photos today. On their photography blog The Emerics write:

For our first ever wedding inspiration shoot, we decided to create a wedding inspired by one our favorite movies of all time, the French film Amelie.  We love the movie so much, our daughter’s middle name is Amelie!  So, if you’ve never seen the movie, I suggest you go watch it soon.  It’s such a sweet film about doing good and finding love.  It’s one of those movies that just makes you feel really good after watching it. We had so many ideas floating around but we  finally chose to narrow it down and focus on bringing out the organic elements of the movie and stick to it’s very specific color scheme of greens and reds.

I second that! “Amelie” is an amazing movie!

They worked with a team of amazing Las Vegas vendors to pull this dream into being – see below for a full list of the people who made this happen. For now – enjoy the photos, and don’t be afraid to consider different points of inspiration for your wedding if it has a theme. Let’s get to it!

*Yes, I used a capital T for the. That’s how awesome The Emerics are.

A number of the props and additional touches like the suitcase and cake table came from thrift stores! Other items, like the burlap sacks were handsewn by Jason Emeric.

That raspberry mille crepe cake looks divine, doesn’t it?

You know I’m a sucker for succulents. It’s like a tiny, perfect, bouquet … but it’s a boutonniere!

Artichokes are one of the things mentioned in the French film.

Thank you so much Jessie and Jason, for letting me feature this imaginative photoset! I can’t wait to see what else you cook up…
