Fall Sunsets Inspired this Chic European Romance Inspiration Shoot
by Brynlee Handy February 25
Even though this chic European romance wedding inspiration planned and designed by Lauren Field Design was set in North Texas, its gallery of photos from the talented Kristin La Voie Photography may convince you a venue as grand as The Olana is worth the drive! European-inspired and exquisite in every way, the sprawling property’s sculptural architecture and manicured lawn serve as a picture-perfect place for an indoor or outdoor affair. Tones of mauve, shades of plum, ochre and golden ivory create the most inviting autumnal-inspired palette while adding depth to whimsical yet sophisticated floral design. Modern and luxe in style, this bride and groom look so chic clad in haute wedding decor – with bride in a tulle bodysuit wedding gown covered in romantic 3D appliqué design and groom in a plum tux paired with black velvet loafers. Natural and feminine textures are layered alongside one another to create an elevated, European romance inspired wedding design that plays on both historic architectural elements as well as romantic, modern details. Read on for a note from planner Lauren Field Design about the vision behind this styled shoot’s upscale design and styling. Cheers!

From the planner, Lauren Field Design: “An intimate elopement editorial set amongst the European grandeur of The Olana, inspired by the fading shades of sunset in the fall. Tones of mauve, shades of plum, ochre and golden ivory are surrounded by manicured greenery and sculptural stone. Natural textures are layered alongside feminine accents to create a romantic ambiance full of chic luxe. Olive Grove Design created floral pieces for the ceremony with textured foliage reminiscent of the range of colors seen during the changing of the seasons. The bouquet was a lovely organic shape with blush, rust, and aubergine blooms. The beauty of the venue is its unique European architecture with sprawling landscape, so we knew we wanted to incorporate portraits on the cascading stone stairs and the fountain. The bride wore a stunning embellished tulle gown by Millia London with a chic black belt and sculptural floral earring and mother of pearl headpiece by Hushed Commotion. The groom donned a plum tux with black velvet loafers.”
