Yesterday’s ballerina bridal editorial was dreamy, right? Today’s shoot by Alixann Loosle Photography has a similar ethereal vibe, except taken outdoors against greenery and river rocks. The team really wanted to share a bride with a bit of an edge, and model Evelyn Eslava‘s pastel locks did the trick, we think!

The inspiration: Peruvian model Evelyn, her hair, and her style.

Stephanie says, Originally inspired by a small brass four-leaf clover trivet found in my grandmother-in-law’s sitting room, I floated the idea of a St. Patrick’s Day inspiration shoot to the ever talented Cody, of Amore Events by Cody. Cody, who has an innate talent for bringing her concepts to life in the most breathtaking way, brought this St. Patty’s Day inspiration to another level. From the delicate touches on the lush green tablescape, to the playful and punchy lomo camera, each element brought its own level of style and elegance.

Stephanie says, It was incredibly inspiring to work with such an amazing team of vendors to pull together such a lovely a concept, especially one centered around a color that often doesn’t receive nearly enough love—all those lovely shades of green.

Totally agreed. Thanks to the vendors below for such a spirited shoot.
