After the Rain: A Styled Shoot in Montgomery, TX

This gorgeous styled shoot with the theme ‘After the Rain’, symbolizes that love is not canceled. Planner of SwaLaRue Events, Anshwa Lewis and a team of talented vendors came together to create beautiful inspiration for couples looking to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony. She shares more about the vision behind this gorgeous styled shoot captured by Elizabeth B. Photography

“The overall palette design consists of : Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. This color palette sets the tone for each design element to make a statement in a sun and shadow themed hue as we transition from cool weather to seasons of warmth. 

This palette embodies an earthy, vibrant feel. 

During the Ceremony scenes we highlighted the following: 

1. Wine Box Ceremony Tradition where the couple writes a love letter to their future selves and encapsulates it with a bottle of wine to be opened on their anniversary, repeating the tradition each year and looking back on their love letters year after year 

2. Tying the Knot Tradition – where the hands of bride and groom are tied together during the ceremony to signify being bound to one another
