Dia de Los Muertos Styled Shoot

In October I had the wonderful privilege of being a part of my lovely friend's, Kristin from Yellow Rose Co, styled shoot.  When she first approached me about the concept, I was ecstatic that her vision was quirky, out of the box, and colorful.  I mean, muertos means dead.  That word is often the last, last thing people think about when they hear "wedding."  However, as she delved into exploring and bringing life to the concept, Day of the Dead struck me as a somber and lovely way to pay tribute to your past and give spirit and fire to your future.  It is a way to remember the loved ones who helped shaped you into the person you are in that moment. On the day of your wedding, you are stepping from a life lived for yourself to a life lived in togetherness.  And much of that day is giving thanks to the support from your past.  It was perfect.

Kristin is a native of Texas and grew up admiring the markets in San Antonio.  She described them simply, saying they were lively.  She was the brains behind the colorful and spirited bouquet, designing and creating the piece that matches perfectly with the bride's bold necklace.  

I was blessed to design the wedding papers from menus to an invitation suite.  Kristin was a true soundboard during this process, allowing me to express my creativity while sharing her vision.  Giving me peace of mind and endless inspiration when hitting designer block.  The program was made complete with amazing confetti from The Confetti Bar.

How amazing is this styling? The warmth of the picture combined with festive foods radiates the purpose and story behind a Dia de Los Muertos inspired wedding.

Our amazingly good-looking models were some of the best people I have had the pleasure of meeting.  I was so impressed with their enthusiasm to jump into such an out of the box concept! 

It was such an honor to be a part of Kristin' vision.  She did an amazing job including the smallest details to the big wedding details! I can not wait to see more of her work. To see more of the shoot, please visit her website
