Bridal Musings feature Gatsby Meets Gaucho in Argentina


So excited to share that Bridal Musings has featured our styled shoot named "Gatsby Meets Gaucho in Argentina"! Keep reading for more details and photos from the beautiful shoot.


"The polo fields and bed and breakfast of Puesto Viejo Estancia set the scene for this luxurious, boho bridal shoot. With flat fields of green, well-manicured lawns and an old-world estate, Burlap & Bordeaux had a blank canvas to design this bohemian dream. Popping blooms of pale pink, and tangerine, the crew went more “luxe” than “rustic” for this countryside scene.

Perhaps the best display of this upscale design is in our bride and groom’s attire. Wearing a set of different boho gowns and sparkling headpieces, the bride gives off a Gatsby vibe, rather perfect for this luxe polo estate. Saving the gaucho look for our groom, we love the idea of a classic, Argentinean hat to pair with more modern menswear duds.

We worked with an incredible team of vendors. The venue provided tables, catering, cake, venue space, polo player and horse and hotel accommodations. We worked with Akende Eventos to provide the furniture, ceremony arch, and decor.

We had our own makeup artist, Jenna N and photographer, Steven Leyva Photography brought in from the states. I brought over the linens custom made from Dreams America Linens; a cream velvet linen with a sheer tulle overlay for sweetheart table adorned with hand-sewn crystals and pearls.

Our invitation suite was custom made by Lauren of Lauren Lauren Lauren and calligraphy by Teagan. We used three custom-made dresses and jewelry from Catalina who was onsite during the shoot to style the models. Her dress designs are absolutely breathtaking!" - Claire Eliza, Bridal Musings

"If you’re on the hunt for ideas that will take your wedding to next level romance, then this editorial at Ebell Los Angeles is about to become your number one. Feast your eyes on this whimsical soft pastel wedding romance that packs a punch of Spring fever with loads of texture. Coordination, design and floral of Burlap & Bordeaux quenches your thirst for all things color with unexpected combinations of muted blush, mauve, metallic and creamy neutrals.

At first glimpse this vision comes across sweet and traditional, yet as you take a closer look at all the details that have been careful considered there is a fun modern touch. With the use of varying, fresh spring color blended with soft pastel and loads of texture the scene is not only whimsical but romantic. Details from the hand painted macarons, mini donuts, and extravagant florals stand out immediately. The subtler use of the hammered copper chargers is a fun touch next to the creamy velvet linens. Of course, for this whimsical soft pastel wedding romance to really hit home, a gorgeous backdrop like the Ebell Los Angeles doesn’t hurt either." - Strictly Weddings, see the full feature here.

Romantic and Modern Ebell of Los Angeles Styled Shoot in Blush, Cream and Metallics


We're so, so excited to share with you something we've been working on! We have teamed up with some of industry's best to stylized a photoshoot over at Ebell Los Angeles. We fell in love with the architecture and all that this space has to offer when we were invited to participate in a wedding showcase earlier this year. Together we dreamed up a design with fresh spring colors like muted blush, mauve, cream and metallics. A big thank you to Teresa Marie Photography for photographing all the beauty and the rest of our vendors (listed below!) for your efforts and hardworking making this one of our best shoots yet!


Dreams America Linens draped the ceremony structure while we, Burlap & Bordeaux, created the perfect florals to accent it. Hand-tied and custom designed, we made sure to have the florals cascading down and wrapping around the base of the altar to create a romantic and whimsical look. Amigo Party Rental provided the rest of the rentals like the gold chiavari chairs to complete the look.

The reception was a beauty of its own. Hammered copper chargers from Soiree 8 were a fun touch next to the creamy velvet linens and paired perfectly with the pink vintage glassware. We brought in a dreamy chiffon runner from Dreams American Linens and a few vintage pieces including a settee and fur drape to add a touch of intimacy. 

No details were left untouched. Kelly Patrice created absolutely the gorgeous paperie and calligraphy for our invitation set. We were sure to add a lot of details such as hand-painted macarons from Roni’s Sugar Creations, glittery mini donuts from Custom Cupcakes by Sarah and stunning cake from Cake Studio LA.

Our models Nicole and Katie were made flawless by Bliss Bridal Beauty and wore dresses by Kinsley James and Kennedy Blue. Desert35 added the finishing touches by providing fragrances for the girls.  

Overall we loved this traditional yet modern twist styled shoot we put together. There was such an elegant feel to everything but when you get up close and see all the details, there’s a fun touch to it as well and we can't get enough of it! Keep scrolling to see all the beauty!
