This editorial was all about a modern and minimalistic style. Details being centered around texture and muted colors helped us create something visually stunning without being overpowering to the natural beauty of the bride.
Kara from Fresh Stems Floral and I created the hand dyed backdrop that was the perfect shade of muted mauve and brought in a romantic softness for the ceremony scene. Beautiful floral arrangements and a luxe bouquet brought in a natural feel. We wanted it bright and clean, so we went with an earthy and neutral color palette in the florals that would compliment the table scape. Because the colors were so neutral we created life and movement in the piece by choosing flowers with a variety of textures and sizes. We also used a blend of fresh blooms and dried stems to help give each piece more texture and interest. A gorgeous flowing dress really added to the romantic feel and gave the photos such beautiful movement. Hair and makeup was kept soft yet elegant, the idea was to keep the main attention on the bride’s natural beauty. Thoughtful details like the unique earrings and hairpiece elevated her look as well.
The tablescape was all about texture with tall, smooth vases, organically shaped plates, shiny flatware and metallic candlestick holders. The folded mauve napkins matched the backdrop and tied the ceremony scene and tablescape together seamlessly. And the cake, oh that cake! It really highlighted the simple beauty that can be achieved with the understated tone-on-tone arch design.
