Wine Country Meets Tropical Flair in Gorgeous Wedding Styled Shoot

What do you say to stunning 360° views that allow you to drink in everything that is So Cal wedding beauty at Emerald Peak Venue?! We say yes!  This exciting tropical inspired styled wine country shoot hosted by Alexandra David, Creative Leader for this Styled Shoots Across America event, brought together some fabulous and popular trends: sweetly bright coral tones, joyful floral displays, and a surprising pop of palm leaves playing off the rustic vineyard elements make for a truly unique-to-So-Cal aesthetic. All of this wedding gorgeousness adorned an elevated plateau that overlooks the surrounding vineyards, where beautiful stations awaited their allotted time in the light.  And OH! What light there was!   The models were at their brightest and most polished, reflecting the bright, beautiful and colorful mood of the day.  From unique balloon-scapes, to a vintage three wheeled mini-truck, converted into a mobile craft beer bar, the colors popped, but the balloons did not!  Thanks Alexandra for this pop of freshness and purely perfect style!
