When the idea of creating a Romantic Bohemian wedding came together, I already envisioned the creatives I wanted to bring onto this project. I knew that everyone would bring their creativity and talent to make this vision come to life and without a doubt, they did.

 

It all started when I came across the amazing designs created by San Diego macrame artist, Stacy Summer Malimban, owner of Knotty By Nature. She creates timeless pieces that I knew would be the perfect addition to this bohemian shoot! She recently launched her Bridal Collection and some of her pieces were incorporated in the styled photoshoot at Owl Creek Farms. These elegant pieces complimented the modern bohemian styled wedding and included an extra large six foot by 6 foot macrame backdrop that hung beautifully on a red mahogany wooden arbor, a gorgeous macrame bridal bouquet wrap that can be repurposed to be a centerpiece on the sweetheart table after the ceremony, and macrame coasters that are a wonderful addition to the reception tablescape decor. I wanted something different to spice up the shoot, so I showed her an inspiration I had for a macrame veil. Without a doubt, Stacy created a stunning double layered macrame bridal veil that complimented the custom designed bridal gown by eco-conscious Bridal designer, Krustallos Couture. This handmade boho design was the perfect dress for the occasion. The built in cape is also removable so that any Bride can enjoy two looks in one.

To compliment the stunning macrame bouquet wrap and perfect fitted bridal gown, Kristin Smith Floral Concepts brought forth her creativity by creating a dreamy boho bouquet that consisted of a assortment of protea, waxflower, garden roses, Ecuadorian roses, pampas grass and silver dollar eucalyptus. She also designed a beautiful arrangement to pair with the macrame backdrop along with a luscious centerpiece for the table scape. In addition, the boutonniere she created looked amazing against the rose colored tux by Friar’s Tux. The rose colored jacket brought the perfect amount of romance and masculinity to the Groom’s attire.

 

Keeping the Bride and Groom looking fresh and their best the entire day, hair and make up artist, Juanita, used a rose tinted lip color to compliment the Groom’s jacket and tied in the Romantic feel of the wedding. The beautiful Bride’s soft curls bounced freely and looked amazing with the macrame veil. The beautiful handmade his and hers vow books added an extra touch of romance along with the intricate details of the invitation suite made using Kraft paper by the talented Sam Allen Creates. A wedding wouldn’t be complete without the sweet elements of the day, Miranda’s Sweet Treats is a home baker that outdid herself with this beautifully designed cake. The fondant sage, cream and marbeled pink design complimented the color palette perfectly. Topped with fresh florals provided by Kristin Smith Floral Concepts.

 

In addition, Doug from Dougs drinks concocted some amazing signature drinks that not only looked beautiful but tasted delicious. The names of the beverages suited each drink perfectly. From the sparkling blood orange cosmo (Blush and Bashful) that complimented the beautiful cake to the detailed garnish of floating flowers in the “Bohemian”. From the perfect color to match your wedding palette, to the top shelf alcohol incorporated into each drink and the garnish used, Doug makes sure that each drink is made to perfection.

 

Le Petit Jardin Vintage styled and provided the rentals for the beautiful lounge area and tablescape, including the triangle arch for the reception table. Each accent piece and furniture was chosen carefully to tie the Bohemian vibe to the shoot. With “Love in the air”, a signature drink created by Dougs Drinks, the Bride and Groom sipped and snuggled as they enjoyed lounging in the decorated area.

 

Lastly, there was no doubt Owl Creek Farms was the perfect venue for this Bohemian wedding. This hidden gem is a working 40 acre farm located in the Temecula Valley with rolling Pomegranate Groves, Lavender & Blackberry fields waiting to be picked and harvested for wine, jams and soaps. From the amazing staff to their glorious bridal suite to their beautifully landscaped property, there is always something new to discover.
