Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, my friends! And on Friday, we sure had a reminder that winter is sticking around for a few more weeks (freezing rain, ick). This inspiration makes me pretty happy with exactly where we are in the calendar right now, though, with touches of cranberry red for V Day and icy white and blue for winter. Kudos to Vine & Light for the lovely photos!
Our goal was to create an inspiring editorial session that captured winter elegance in an unexpected and modern way. We pulled together a muted color palette of icy blue, ivory, forest green and cranberry. The white muslin fabric throughout the design pulls from white snow, the greyish blue from icy water, and the brown recycled kraft paper from bare trees. Because of the earthy color palette, it seemed fitting to do hand lettering with a very light and free hand. The antlers were used throughout to frame different components tied in the wintery earthy feel, as well.
Love this cascading centerpiece in a vintage urn!
Gorgeous metallic china supplied by Dishie Rentals!
I am obsessed with this dress by Ines Di Santo. Fun fact – the dress was shipped directly to us from the designer. It was pulled right off the runway at bridal fashion week and sent to Solutions Bridal for the shoot! These are the first photographs of this gorgeous dress outside of the runway photos. I was in wedding heaven! I love the lace detailing and tulle overlay. So dreamy. And Josh from Willard Randall did a fantastic job styling our groom to keep up with our bride’s gorgeous look – I loved the grey and on grey layering.
Thanks again to Vine & Light and all the other talented ladies and gents who brought this shoot to life!
killer bridal ensemble! adore!
It turned out so beautifully! I was so thrilled to be part of this shoot with such amazing ladies!
Yay! Had such a blast working with this team and styling up this gorgeous model. I hope you southern gals love this look as much as we do!!! The dress from Ines Di Santo is just splendid. I almost fell over backwards when I saw it come down the runway at Bridal Fashion Week! So happy the photographer loved it as much as I do. Such a soft couture look! Can’t wait to style the next shoot!
As for the accessories…. I was fortunate enough to meet the designer of the bolero this past Fall. She makes these gorgeous lace pieces as well. The bolero can come in ivory if you want to go for a more traditional look and I’m sure she can make it without the beading as well. The earrings by Maria Elena are my favorite pieces from the collection. I actually own a pair for myself. I couldn’t resist! And don’t forget to stack your cuffs for some bridal flare by Desla and Erin Cole!
Oh joy! I just love this shoot. Thanks so much for sharing, ladies!
