Feminine Garden Inspiration

In a world filled with so much chaos, development, innovation, and modernism, we wanted to stop and celebrate something timeless and enduring: the beauty of femininity. For this shoot, we wanted to do something feminine, organic, and romantic. The muted color palette really allowed for the natural beauty of the ranch to show through. Running streams and rows of pine trees set the backdrop for this mountain shoot, along with breathtaking views.

 To achieve that soft, graceful look we were going for, we dressed the table with airy and delicate florals. We also created a table number of pressed bougainvillea, aspen leaves, spray roses, and many other beautiful flowers. We layered a  ivory silk runner from Tono & Co. onto of a blush pink chiffon linen for texture. For the napkins we wanted to compliment the scenery with green silk napkins. On top of the table sat marble taper candle holders with thin white taper candles. We chose clean white plates, gold rimmed glassware, and modern gold flatware for an effortless look.

 

Megan Joy designed a beautiful textured blush cake consisting of delicious sour cream cake with mountain huckleberries and maple buttercream, dark chocolate stout cake with smoked caramel and espresso and chocolate buttercream, and a buttermilk cake with vanilla bean buttercream.

 

The invitation suite provided by Plume Calligraphy was the perfect blend of clean and elegant. They were encased with a vellum wrap which Plume embellished with leaves and it was pressed together with a black garland wax seal. We also added pressed flowers to the bride and groom’s place cards.

 We went with a gorgeous dress designed by Flora, an Israeli designer. It had a flowy skirt and a sheer top with lace embellishments. Paired with a long veil from Sara Gabriel, it was perfect.  The subtle and soft makeup created a flawless look on our model.
