Excited to learn that a few of our BSB vendors, Styled by Kelsey V. (Wedded Weekend organizer) and Camel and Birdie (calligrapher), were a part of this amazing southwestern stylized shoot, designed by Garnished Event and captured by Kati Hewitt Photography! We thought today couldn’t be a more perfect day to share some desert and fiesta-infused wedding inspiration.
Creativity was at its peak when this vendor team paired a bit of modern desert style with a touch of traditional fiesta elements. Tiny, bright potted cactus danced along the woven Serape table runner (long blanket like shawl native to Mexican and often brightly covered). Gold terrariums incorporated with white desert rocks and succulents brought the perfect amount of modern aesthetics to the shoot. The vendor team also popped in a few mini donkey pinatas to add a bit of fun to the already festive feel. We are also in love with the hand painted, 3-tiered cake, by Get Caked, added another unique touch to finish off the southwestern vibe. Last but not least, the breathtaking view of the Texas hill country was the perfect backdrop to make this styled shoot one for the books!
Kelsey is currently in Thailand for the next 6 weeks, teaching hair, makeup, and basic cosmetology practices through Shear Love International, an organization empowering local women to create their own business through hair design.
Catrina, of Camel and Birdie, is pretty much the coolest person around and personally inspired and taught me calligraphy last fall. Her heart for serving others and her community encourage us daily!
