Flirty + Romantic Wedding Shoot

Yuuummy! This deliciously fun and flirty shoot was an absolute dream to work on! Our incredibly stylish bride, Amanda wowed us from day one with her amazing style and impeccable taste for all things pretty! Amanda and Brandon are an absolutely adorable couple and we were delighted to style this sweet and romantic shoot for them with Rachel Robinson Photography. From the scrumptious, pink Betsey Johnson dress, to the beautiful BHLDN tea length gown, the images of this shoot read like a perfect fairytale. We love the whimsical tea party and Amanda's cute "mini mad hat" and the shopping cart scene was inspired but Amanda's love for shopping! Brandon was such a good sport and his love for Amanda is so endearing. Congrats to this fun couple!

LOVE this last one!

Bammel Lane: An Evening in the Gardens

Years before we launched Recollection, I can remember my mother and I visiting the Gardens of Bammel Lane and instantly falling in love with this quaint venue nestled inside the bustling River Oaks area of Houston. We were immediately smitten with this Old English Conservatory imported from London, and the impeccably kept grounds that surround it. Recently we had the opportunity to participate in their open house, assisting in the event design from the invitations, to the decor, and more! We were overjoyed to be able to showcase our vintage rentals at this hidden gem and hope to be a part of many more events at this charming venue! Please enjoy the gorgeous photos below by Archetype Studio.
