This summer has been coasting by so quickly, can y'all believe it is almost July?! (Us either.) I guess in between weddings, photo shoots and events, we have lost track of time AND blog posts.
Although we have been MIA for a little while, we have the perfect treat to share with y'all as our big debut back to the blog world. This gorgeous dusty blue inspired editorial at The Vine featured on Inspired by This a little while back has got to be one of the most romantic ones we've created thus far. The rustic details companied by organic free-flowing flowers simply gives us all the feels.
Working with Smith House Photography & Plan our Day we really got to bring in the idea of a rather masculine color palette becoming something feminine and delicate. Some of our favorite florals used for this shoot were:
- Garden Roses
- Spray Roses
The bridal bouquet was large and lush to compliment the massive fireplace arrangement. Because the venue is so simple and raw, we wanted an element of grandeur and boldness.
However, we didn't want the look to feel too heavy, so we created an organic greenery runner along the tablescape. Gorgeous place settings and flatware by A Finer Event paired with decor from The Borrowed Flea made our rather simple runner truly POP. The "Expo" linen from House of Hough is definitely one of our new favorite, BTW.
Touches of greenery and white adorned the wine barrels and a smaller arrangement similar to the fireplace beauty sat next to the cake, created by Cakes by Gina. A single anemone was placed on the sugary, marbled cake.
Some of our favorite details of this editorial include the "blue suede shoes" by Steve Madden, the low-back bridal gown from Unbridaled, the collaborative paper products by Camel & Birdie and Lynsey Creative, the watercolor crest by Jamie Lewis Artistry and amazing glam by Misty Rockwell....seriously, that hair style is killer.
HUGE special Thank-You to our models for the afternoon, Sarah & Caleb. Not to brag, but this stunning engaged couple are KIND OF a big deal....Sarah just so happens to be Ms Texas United States 2015 while Caleb is an outfielder for the Syracuse Chiefs minor-league baseball team. [You can check out their schedule here.] Can you say power couple?!
