As promised I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Em the Gem images from the incredible workshop we were a part of at Kunde Vineyards. Amanda from One True Love Vintage Rentals put together this workshop and lucky for you, there is more where this came from! If you are interested in being a part of it you can sign up for the next workshop here.
We showed up at Kunde Vineyards to tons of goodies from some of the most talented vendors the Bay Area has to offer. From the lucious florals to the delicious sweets there was something in every corner of the Kunde Ruins to be photographed. Each set up was more inspired than the last. One of my favorites was the whiskey bar that was tucked away amidst the trees. It made for the perfect backdrop to showcase Amanda's adorable details and the charming calligraphy by Little Miss Press.
Amanda carefully curated every detail down to the last piece of silverware. Each handmade detail was better than the last. The attention to detail is what makes Amanda and the One True Love Vintage Team so unique. I mean, can you handle this silverware? Even the napkins were hand painted! Huckleberry Karen's florals were to die for and completed each vignette beautifully.
We styled two different looks for the photographers to capture. I wanted to compliment the color scheme and add a more fresh, modern and untraditional bridal look to the shoot. Sarah Seven's Goldie gown was the perfect gown to do just that. The textured metallic lace has that extra something special that photographs so well. I also love how structured Sarah Seven's bodices are, while still giving the feeling of a bohemian and free flowing gown. This dress proves that you don't have to be in white to walk down the aisle in something breathtaking and unique. I added a large statement druzy earring from Margaret Elizabeth that I'm still drooling over! I worked closely with Priscilla Francine Makeup to complete both looks. Priscilla's work is so lovely. I'm totally obsessed with this fishtail braid and berry lip combo.
Our other look was for a bride who likes a fun and flirty short dress. It's also perfect for a bridal brunch, engagement pictures, bridal shower, or even a bachelorette party! This Anthropologie tulle skirt adds a romantic bridal element but by pairing it with metallics, gorgeous curls and maroon booties it's dressed down enough to work for any occasion.
We also brought another Sarah Seven stunner that we decided to feature in a different way. With the sun shining on "Golden Lights" it truly made for a magical photo op. Don't you think?
As mentioned before, this was actually a photography workshop. I'll be featuring a few of my favorites from the other photographers who were there to capture all the beauty soon, so keep you eyes pealed! Now, you should probably start pinning these images on Pinterest! AAAAND GO! =)
