Orient Meets Desert

 

Endless their eyes run over Texas´ widths, the country that belongs to the bridal couple today.

Excitedly tall grasses dance with the breeze, asking her dress for a dance soon after.

The merciless desert by itself is sparsely romantic. Loneliness, drought and heat are the challenge to win.

With the help of oriental influences like colors, patterns and camels a multi-talent of creativity succeeded in revitalizing this abandoned place with love.

For this exceptional photo workshop Clayton Austin slipped into the role of an event stylist, florist, fashion designer and cake artist who left nothing to chance.

With black lace and dark tulle, he designed a bridal dress as fancy as the groomsmen that entered the limelight.

Golden calligraphy on black stationery, oriental jewelry and adorable details from the Eastern World rounded out his masterpiece.

Here photographer Christine Gosch presents us the result of this amazing workshop and takes us to seventh heaven on a flying carpet…
