Whenever we get the opportunity to be a part of a styled shoot like the one featured in this post, we are beyond thrilled. We get to roll up our sleeves as artists and dream up something within an original idea set forth by visionary collaborators.
This styled shoot was organized as part of a photography workshop hosted by Laurenda Marie Photography, who also captured the beautiful photos in this post. The atmosphere that she and floral designer Melissa Anne Floral Co. created feels so relaxed and effortlessly elegant. We wish we could jump right into these photos, grab a cupcake, and revel in the magical mood they were able to capture.
For the suite we focused on pairing dusty blush tones with modern serif typography to give the whole ensemble an intimate structure. Placing a delicate floral illustration onto a diagonally cut vellum layer made the suite feel so elegant and harmonious. This airy detail was also introduced with both the festivities directory and onto the place cards that were attached to the menus for a subtle pop of charm. The final touch: a rose gold wax seal with a simple floral emblem.
A small detail we love: removing a single corner of both the invitation and menu. It's a very subtle element that brings so much balance to the design as a whole.
Can you tell yet how much we loved working on this suite??
So many things about this shoot remind us of a whimsical tea party reimagined as a sophisticated yet laid back gathering. We're absolutely in love with all of the the warm tones that dazzle throughout the whole setting, especially across the charming table scape (those crystal glasses though!).
The contrast between the romantic color palette and natural textures of brick and wood throughout the venue round out the entire ambience of the shoot. Just look how stunning this floral arrangement looks against the dark wood table:
A huge thank you to Laurenda Marie Photography and Melissa Anne Floral co. for bringing such a beautiful vision to life. We're so grateful to have been a part of it!
Now excuse us while we daydream of peonies and pastel cakes for the rest of the day...
