SONNET
XVII

 
Brigman-(297).jpg

This elopement editorial is inspired Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII. It evokes romance in it’s most raw form. Sweet words of lettered poetry adorn gauzy fabric and cake. Taper candles, a breezy gown, and rich lush blooms all provide movement and texture. Mauve is the key color, highlighted by an incredible panel of neutrals and punctuated by deep mulberry. A large floral installation set the scene for vows. We had the lines of poetry displayed on stepping stones. A table set for two is the perfect way to have a first meal as husband and wife. 
 

An excerpt from the sonnet:

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. 
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
