Shotgun Wedding from The Nest, Floral Studio

Shotgun Wedding from The Nest, Floral Studio

Our shoot took place in a beautiful, historic private residence located in Westlake Texas.  This 1937 residence was preserved from the original structure created by architect Charles Dilbeck. The design concept of the shoot was that of a vintage yet glamorous approach to taxidermy. “I wanted a woodsy feeling but with ideas that an actual bride could re-create.” Florals by Nest Floral were weaved with natural elements like cotton, wheat, acorns and pheasant feathers. Our treat setup by Colleens Cakes included fall inspired colors and flavors such as mini pecan and pumpkin pies, a spice bundt cake, carrot cupcakes and caramel apples adorned with natural branches in lieu of sticks. The fine attention to details is what makes this shoot so intricate. From wooden pistols to turtle shells and antlers, you can look at the images over and over still capturing more with each observation. Our bride wore an oatmeal Watters gown found at the Bridal Boutique in Lewisville Texas. Her headpieces were those provided by Serephine and jewelry by Stella & Dot. Our groom sported suspenders and a vintage bowtie found at The Dolly Python in Dallas. Perez Photography was a perfect match, creating a dreamy look through lens for our couple. Look closely to see our moonshine station, cornbread display and tablescape design. Every little details was thought out down to the deer silhouettes as place cards or the invitation suite on wood printed by Pulp Letterpress. Rent my Dust Vintage provided fabulous vintage pieces such as the old iron and board, dolies, furs, and so much more. – From The Nest, Floral Studio
