frida kahlo inspired wedding shoot

Frida Kahlo Inspired Wedding Editorial Shoot from Ale Vidal on Vimeo.


you guys have to check out this styled wedding shoot by alejandra of imaginale design. i'm not usually a big fan of styled shoots, sometimes they just seem so forced and fake but i LOVE this one. the colors are incredible, the dress is stunning, the flowers, the hair piece...ah!! it's all gorgeous. alejandra said "The Frida shoot was such a special piece that I poured a lot of dreaming and planning into!" well, you can tell!

you can view the stills from the shoot on one of the most inspiring wedding blogs. sara burnett who runs burnett's boards has an eye for putting together gorgeous wedding boards. i'm sure you'll love them!

sock bun tutorial


when i got married i wanted a sock bun, except i didn't know that's what it was called. i love this kind of bun, especially for a wedding, and this tutorial makes it look pretty easy to do. plus, wendy, who is teaching the tutorial is so damn cute you'll just want to watch her!

below are a few photos from my wedding so you can see my sock bun!

trend: oxblood red

if you follow me on pinterest, you've probably seen all the pins in my new favorite color for fall: oxblood. it's a terrible name for a kick ass color! you can call it burgundy or wine, but those names are so 1985. so here are some items in oxblood red(ish). what do you think? do you like? 

wedding trend: grey is the new black

i haven't read 50 shades of grey but i do know that grey is all the rage right now in weddings. i especially love the grey and yellow combo, but grey is such a fabulous neutral you can pair with just about any color and it works. this post was inspired by my most recent manicure where i got the O.P.I color "you don't know jacques." LOVE it!
