A romantic old worldly European look styled shoot with rustic elements

Today I am truly thrilled to share this stunning and romantic old worldly European look styled shoot with rustic elements.

Honey Creek Ranch is a Wedding and Special Occasion venue in a gorgeous 5 acre country setting with a rustic reception Barn with an outdoor Chapel, and a cozy bridal cottage.

May Carlson Fine Art Photography captured some gorgeous images to celebrate the opening of this special place alongside the incredible work of some wonderful wedding vendors.



May says of the shoot…


“This amazing styled shoot was created by myself and styled by the coordinator for the promotion of the opening of Honeycreek Ranch in Spring Branch, Texas.”

“Our model bride and groom, Matt and Kristin Lowman were celebrating their 5 year anniversary! So it was perfect timing all round!”

“I wanted to create a romantic old world European look even though we were on a ranch in Texas!”

“The overall look and style of the venue is very rustic, with natural stone elements so we chose gold, red, and deep greens as our accent colors, with soft natural grey linen to compliment.”

“We used antique gold flatware and antique plates and glasses, gold chairs with white linen seats and gold candle sticks with tall thin beeswax candles in the styling with vibrant blooms to make a a bold floral statement.”



Thank you so much to May and the collaborative team for sharing their immense creativity in this romantic old worldly European look styled shoot.

I adore the bold rich tones which convey such warmth and emphasise lovely Texan hospitality.

From the most gorgeous of florals, to the most eyecatching crockery & glassware, to pretty stationery, to stunning gowns, pretty bridesmaids, a dashing Groom, to beautiful beauty looks everything is stunning.

Every part of the team has blended seamlessly to create the most spectacular of themes to show this incredible venue at its very best.
