Rent My Dust is so proud to present this beautiful styled shoot from New Orleans to you today!  Adri from Moss Floral asked us to be a part of this gorgeous New Orleans shoot and we were like, YES!  So our Eastlake chair traveled to the big Easy to meet the amazingly talented, Meghan K Sadler.   Here is what Meghan had to say about this shoot in Once Wed:  

This editorial focuses on the moments between a bride and groom after the wedding. When all of the toasts and all of the celebrations are over. And when all of the anxieties and nerves have subsided. The moments when the new couple make their way to their private retreat for their first night as man and wife. The editorial captures these private moments of realization and intimacy between the newly married couple.

We wanted to focus on the deconstructed moments, contrary to the perfection and precision from pre-wedding preparations. When the bride and groom can finally breathe, be in the moment, and embrace each other as newlyweds. Rich winter, and somewhat faded hues of the floral compliment the historic bed and breakfast located in New Orleans. The Alexandra Grecco gown reflects the eminent history of the city and the space. And the esoteric character of the city mimics the special relationship between the bride and groom, which is unique to them, and is to be preserved. We wanted to capture these moments in the photographs.

Ashley + Kerry = Vintage Shabby Chic Wedding at Rustic Grace Estates

Ashley + Kerry = Vintage Shabby Chic at Rustic Grace Estates


We so adored this darling Shabby Chic Wedding of Ashley & Kerry at the Rustic Grace Estates in Van Alstyne, Texas.   Ashley contact me wanting table decor for her shabby chic wedding.  She has grown up in McKinney going to antique stores with her Mom and wanted to bring that love of vintage to her wedding.  She also wanted to bring charm  to her vintage look without a lot of florals.  So we rounded up our silver teapots and vintage crystal decanters and created tablescapes that could stand a lone without flowers.  We so love doing weddings at Rustic Grace.  The antique barn is amazing and the folks are so very nice.  A HUGE thank you goes out to Ariana Nicole Miller of ANM Photography.  She shared these amazing photos with us the week after the wedding.  We were impressed to say the least.  Check out her website and tell her Rita said hello.
