Kelli Avila Photography & Erika Amalia Events
We hosted a Vow Renewal Styled Shoot back in November, and are SO inspired by the design and teamwork that is responsible for its creation! This modern boho shoot featured a neural color palette that compliments the fall season and brings an elegance feel to the design. So much inspiration to be drawn from the design concept of this shoot, but also the creative vendor team behind it all.
When a styled shoot first look is this authentic, you know it’s true love! Husband and wife duo Kevin and Kori made the perfect model couple for this shoot. Their love and adoration for one another is so real, and is shown even in the media from this shoot!
Erika pulled the brides drool-worthy gown from Daughters of Simone! Anthropologie’s BHLDN carries their dresses online, they have a retail store in San Francisco, and word on the street is there may be a location coming soon to Fresno! And the handmade Make Pie earrings made for fun statement jewelry.
We could go ON and ON about all of the design details of this shoot! Each element was paired perfectly and complimented Kelli’s vision for the shoot. This sweetheart table was one of our favorite features, not only was it shot in the perfect location but it also showed off some amazing texture and color with Erika’s tabletop styling.
Can you think of a better way to end the evening than with Ciao Cow Creamery gelato by the fireside in The Garden?! Sounds like a perfect way to celebrate love!
Now, let’s meet the AMAZING team behind this styled shoot!
First, we have the beautiful and talented Kelli Avila Photography. Kelli is a wedding and boudoir photographer that has a passion for capturing beauty while telling their story. Kelli dreamed up an amazing vision for this elegant boho wedding design, and teamed up with Erika Amalia Events to help make it a reality.
“The idea behind the shoot was to create beautiful work to show our brides what’s actually possible with amazing vendors. We love the boho style but wanted to do it with modern elegance. Erika really used her talents to make it happen. She sourced the details and decor, styled everything and made it happen so effortlessly. She really is a talent and incredibly organized. I chose the couple because they have such an obvious adoration for each other. Watching them together tells the story of what love really should look like. Kevin and Kori are truly a dream and the real deal. They were a no brainer when picking who could represent what we were trying to put forward. Everyone on board was a delight to work with. So happy we did this shoot and so happy with what we all created!” – Kelli
