Step through the garden gate and prepare to be enchanted by this gorgeous bridal inspiration shoot! Elisheva, of Elisheva Golani Photography, is a talented Houston-based natural light photographer with a love of romantic images and all things vintage. She set out to collaborate with Houston wedding vendors to bring her vision to life, and we’re sure glad she did because these images have us floating through a daydream.

We love seeing our Isla wedding dress as the centerpiece of a romantic bridal look, and it is perfected by the lovely makeup from Makeup by Rivki and a profusion of paper blooms from Paper Floral Artistry. The Isla gown, with its delicate pleats of cream chiffon, moves with ease and grace, making it an ideal dress for a garden wedding. The unexpected juxtaposition of paper florals in a lush green garden setting is just the kind of dreamy bridal inspiration we needed to give a fresh burst of prettiness to our day!

I met Khrystyna Balushka from Paper Floral Artistry at the Houston Arboretum. Together we set up the set while our model Tammy was getting her hair and makeup done. I had tried my best to describe to each of the vendors what my vision was and I am thrilled to say that it came out even better than what I envisioned!
