Refined RomanceDevine Ranch in Aptos, CA
For this shoot, we drew inspiration from the rustic grandeur of Devine Ranch. The backdrop of the California rolling hills, the timber frame estate and towering redwood trees set a natural yet luxurious aesthetic. We wanted to design a high-end couture, romantic and intimate setting to inspire brides around the world with the use of soft wood tones, and French lounge furniture. We created a summer brunch tablescape using blush vintage stemware and bright florals then transformed the look for night with added candles and statement chairs.
Vintage trophies were stuffed with hues of pink, purple and vibrant greens to pull in the venues equestrian flair. Custom calligraphy paper goods by Laura Hooper, made the paper suite blend seamlessly with the rest of the romantic elements. Gorgeous gowns from Amy Kuschel and Maggie Sottero made our bride look effortless and chic; styled with accessories from Untamed Petals to make the look more couture and fashion forward. Mike Larson captured every beautiful moment. This inspiration shoot’s design would be perfect for the bride looking to host a romantic intimate, rehearsal dinner or formal wedding.
