Temperatures may be dropping in Texas, but this minimalistic terracotta styled shoot by Amy Maddox Photography is sure to warm you up!

An earthy palette of terracotta tones with indigo accents set the mood while natural elements of dried palm leaves, pampas grass, and bright florals add a bohemian touch. The warm details are carried through into the intimate table setting by Your Butler’s Pantry with its cobalt-toned dinnerware and vintage glass goblets paired with gold flatware. This tablescape is perfect for the boho bride looking for an intimate, natural table setting with a modern twist!

The minimalist theme continues in the three-tier, white, modern and sculptural wedding cake with delicate arches by Susie’s Cakes. Photographer Amy Maddox captures the glowing bride in a simple, strapless wedding gown from Modern Affinity in natural light. The earthy palette makes its way outdoors to the unique terracotta inspired altar featuring a dramatic painted orange-hued backdrop and dried florals. 

Scroll down and enjoy this minimalistic terracotta styled shoot captured by Houston wedding photographer Amy Maddox in her signature bright and airy photography style. We love it and so will you…Check out more of her work here and schedule a consultation today!

The bakery has been transformed into an adorable wedding cake paradise with its wall-to-wall display of cakes showcasing the newest trends and techniques.
