It was so much fun working with the lovely Tory of Smith + James Events and Sally Pinera on set as a wedding stylist for this neutral Ojai wedding inspiration shoot. Tory pulled a beautiful lace dress which I paired with a Trousseau & Co hat box as an option during bridal portraits. Tory brought a ton of great dried floral elements, Silk and Willow ribbons and runners to style the wedding invitations by Plume Calligraphy. I started by folding a sheer chiffon remnant to create an ethereal, neutral background. Dried flowers and mini fall leaves were placed around the suite; I broke up the fall leaves to trail through the scene. Finally, fuzzy wisteria pods found on the property, added the perfect textural accent. For favors, Tory was envisioning little herb bundles, I used one of her vintage baskets paired with wild eucalyptus to hold the bundles which were accented with a few more dried floral elements. Tory also wanted a cheese board with accents of pear, which I plated and prepped (and ate). To go with it, I made a champagne cocktail with sliced pear garnish and served it on a classic silver tray from The Ark. You can see more of this wedding editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.
