When we received this old world charm wedding inspiration and editorial from Rebecca Yale, we knew we would have the hardest time picking out our favorites to include in Volume 5. If we had it our way, the whole entire issue might just be about this editorial. Thankfully we have this blog to share some of the images that didn’t make the pick yet are still so stunning that we had to share them here. Planner and designer Taryn Leach explains, “Nestled in the lush, wooded eucalyptus trees atop the plunging seaside cliffs of Palos Verdes, CA there sits a stunning chapel. Saint Francis, a breathtaking chapel built from old brick and carved stone, radiated an old-worldy beauty that you might expect to find in an intimate European village. It was hard to not imagine a more inspiring location for a shoot. With Old World beauty as the foundation of our design, we drew inspiration from art history and architectural movements in Europe during the medieval and renaissance time periods to create our concept.”

“The period undertones allowed us to implement a regal element with our strong presence of golds and brass throughout the shoot, as well as the many gorgeous crowns and hair adornments that we were thrilled to feature. We incorporated couture bridal gowns from Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra and Watters to show the modern bride how she can draw inspiration from the Old World, but update it with modern couture. We embraced the juxtaposition of an unpredictable ocean in our moody color palette and wild, weedy florals, while portraying the natural serenity of the coastal fog at sunrise on a quiet morning.”
