From Paula Bartosiewicz Photography – “The inspiration for our styled shoot came from the natural elements of raw crystals, brass, and wood elements. Crystals are known for their spiritual healing abilities in connection with the Earth’s energy.

Our ideal bride is a traveler and a lover of all things Mother Nature. She is highly in tune with her spirituality and is considered a free spirit. As she often finds herself on the road, she discovered unique treasures from antique shops and outdoor markets. She is fun, loving, energetic, carefree, and has a positive outlook on life; what we felt was a true bohemian woman.”

From Paula – “The shoot took place in the woods, nestled next to a creek. The overall setting was nothing short of a magical and mystifying ambiance. The floral inspiration came from nature itself, including free-falling, effortlessly put together arrangements. It was our hope that the florals could have been grown in our bride’s garden or picked up at the local farmer’s market.

All of the table décor, except the terrarium, tablecloth, and crystals, was thrifted or antiqued: the plates, napkins, glasses, silverware, and brass flower holders. It was our thought that our ideal bride potentially possesses this type of décor in her home or discovered it during her travels. We found a diverse selection of various raw crystals and rocks, each holding its individual meaning.

The dessert table was a bit non-traditional. Instead of the typical sweets, we took the route of fresh berries, vibrant fruits and a cheese round topped with nuts, cranberries, and honey. It’s a new take on what the dessert table can have andt keeps in mind that desserts can also be healthy and affordable. The dessert table itself is antique and the rest of the elements were thrifted.”

“We wanted the overall bridal attire to look effortless, yet steer away from the traditional ideal. We feel like our bride is best represented by the Free People clothing brand, so naturally we got a dress that fit the free-flowing, mystifying, bohemian look were going for. The headpiece was handmade by myself, keeping true to our theme. We chose to use quartz for the headpiece because it holds many spiritual meanings and felt like a subtle yet beautiful touch.

We handmade numerous parts of the décor, all of which were made by Divinity Buggs and myself! We figured this would be an inspiration for future brides that it is possible to create beautiful things for their wedding day and keep it all on a budget at the same time. The tablecloth was cut and hand dip-dyed in a berry color, the invitations were handmade as well with watercolor and gold string, and our hanging quartz & crystal installation was the perfect DIY touch!”
