Lady in Red Not all weddings see the couple in black and white. When photographer Elin Hughes gathered a team of creative colleagues at Stillwater Meadow in Aledo to collaborate on a styled wedding photo shoot, the groom wore a black suit, but the bride modeled an autumnal shade of crimson. “I wanted something that was beautiful and classic but colorful,” Hughes says. Florist Katy Lee built on the rich, romantic color with big, bold flower arrangements of burgundy and blush blooms with wild greenery, while calligrapher Madeleane Lea Deaton lent her talents to menus that promise culinary delights and a sweet quote, “You are my today and all of my tomorrows.” The venue, Stillwater Meadow, made for a setting filled with rustic romance — a chandelier hanging from a tree, a pond with a vintage rowboat at the ready and old live oaks lending ambiance. Borrowed Treasures Vintage Rentals further set the scene for a special evening under the stars with an elegant vintage couch and cowhide rug. Atop the table set for two, candlesticks with slim tapers stood ready to provide light come nightfall. But the most luminous element came from the real-life romance of Caitlin McGlaun and Marc Bautista, who modeled for the photo shoot, their affection shining through. “It’s just two people and their love story,” says Hughes.
