From colorful florals to cute fluffy alpacas this Latin American-inspired styled shoot included so many vibrant details that truly embodied the spirit of Latin-America. The shoot took place a stunning Spanish-inspired vineyard called Running Hare Vineyard, which has a veranda with warm tan stucco that really added a Spanish flare to the table scape. Although it rained for most of our shoot, it didn’t deter the creative team from putting together a beautiful set-up and getting some stunning shots, even in the rain!


The idea for this styled shoot came from our florist, Audra Hernandez from Breathtaking Bouquets, who brought together a team of creatives who have a passion for diversity and representation within the wedding industry. Audra also provided the dress which had beautiful embroidery details that she then hand dyed into colorful patterns! The bride’s hair was then perfectly coifed in a low braided bun and embellished with vibrant flowers. The wedding party were all styled to compliment the bride and groom and got to walk the vineyard with the two alpacas Gizmo and Jedi.


As the sunset, the couple then embraced by the beautifully designed three-tier cake with intricately placed florals on each tier. We then wrapped the shoot with some gorgeous back lit shots in the veranda and as the sun disappeared, the bride and groom were given a clear umbrella to cuddle under as the rain poured around them.
