Behind the Most Romantic
In collaboration with Holly Carlisle of Rosegolden, we explored the most exquisite palette for a wedding – moody, rich, and jewel-toned. We wanted it to feel deeply romantic.
Jewel and berry tones have a dramatic and sensual quality that we both found very inspiring. Using bold color can be intimidating so we wanted to explore those tones and textures to show how they can be combined in an eclectic, graceful, and balanced way.
From a styling perspective, much of the inspiration for this shoot came from balance in weight, color, and texture. Where we had ink candles, we chose some blush florals. With soft, fleshy figs, we added hard walnuts. Delicate glassware is anchored with petrified wood, almost stone-like coasters. We chose a bulky wood table and set it with wiry bistro chairs. A tulle- drenched gown balanced a perfectly structured suit. Every element had an opposite counterpart.
