Sweet, pretty pastels for a wedding day always bring out the girly-girl side of us, especially with Amy and Jordan Photography behind the lens to capture the sublime feminine details. When we saw this styled shoot with our premier partner Kelly Faetanini's blushing lace gown, we knew we had to share it with our audience! Ashley Gain Weddings and Flower Studio delivers romance through exquisite handcrafted details, flowing chiffons and an enticing garden theme that seems to be bursting with ideas for a soft wedding day dream.
Pretty Pastels of Prints and Blush
As Ashley Gain Weddings imagined - the art of a brush stroke can say it all. By weaving in hand-crafted designs from the calligraphy ink, hand painted flowers on the cake, the florals on the bridesmaids dress to the tiny rosettes on the china we experience the authenticity of art through various textures. Her inspiration behind the shoot began with the delicate floral pattern of Jenny Yoo's bridesmaids dresses. While so many brides have a hard time going choosing a "pattern," these dresses allow a bride who wants something different a little different for her bridal party, yet still achieve a timeless-romantic look. The look superbly balances designer Kelly Faetanini's "Helen" fit and flare gown with alencon lace and soft blush tulle skirt that features a peek-a-boo lace neckline detail and metallic beading.
The Garden Loving Bride
The printed bridesmaids dresses in turn inspired Jenny Sanders of Graceline's stationary designs with watercolor and torn edges. The simple and ethereal color palette continues to shine through with the selected china showcasing pink and gold saturated hues that added hints of soft-spoken glamour. Flower Studio's floral arrangements and bouquets matched the overall feel of the romantic while not deconstructing the look of the dreamy glam concept. The blooms paired nicely with brass/gold details in the candelabras while harmonizing the china and flatware. Nothing was understated on this tablescape. Rattan chairs, wood and heavy natural fabric upholstered furniture along with a vintage ceremony window pane allowed the team to retain the overall vibe while getting too formal. Even adding in a natural runner at ceremony that led to the large bare pillar candles standing on the floor created a dimension of authenticity. Top of mind was the "garden loving bride" who still wants the dressy table and a detailed centered experience for her guests.
