Happy new month, lovelies! We’re easing into a new editorial theme for this month, and I’m super excited to be covering everything green, greenery and especially Pantone’s Colour of the Year, also called Greenery. It’s going to be a month of serene greens! And we’re starting it off with this sweet bridal shoot from the wonderful Vicky Bergallo Photography and her team, which captures the lovely feeling of a long summer afternoon, dear friends, and gorgeous boho fashion. We’re also more than a little in love with the sweetly delicate stationery details, which perfectly complement the florals, and the relaxed ambience (not to mention the scene stealing flower girl!). The inspiration, according to Vicky, was “a lovely afternoon at Salt + Stone boutique venue, feminine boho dresses, and light and airy photos!” Let’s get our green on!
One of the things I love about editing SouthBound Bride is that I get to hear the most amazing love stories from couples, many of whom come from completely different places, and it’s like the world conspires to somehow, through a series of events, have them meet and fall in love (what tells you I’m a huge romantic, eh?). Jaydene and David are one of these couples, whose unlikely meeting happened thanks to David’s Mormon mission to South Africa, and progressed in the old fashioned way through heartfelt correspondence while Jaydene was on her mission. Together at last, they celebrated the second day of their wedding weekend with family and friends in the proudly South African surroundings of Harmonie Proteas, where Jaydene and her mother built a boho fantasy forest setting for their vows and reception, using some of the bride’s favourite things. And goodness, but Jaydene made a gorgeous bride in her custom lace sleeve gown, wow! With bridesmaids also in lace and flower crowns, the perfect rustic setting, and these pretty pics by Vicky Bergallo, it was a day to remember!
