We had such a great time designing this styled shoot for our friend, the talented Justin Lee Photography at 501 Union with the newly formed planning company, One Six 9 last spring! The girls at One Six 9 had an initial idea of a luxe burgundy wedding theme with geometric elements - we had always wanted to do a styled shoot with the color palette and the shapes! To create that opulent fall look, we used deep marsala tones with fresh berry and light blush shades to complement and contrast. All the flowers we used - ranunculus, sweet peas, garden roses, scabiosa blooms, hellebores, astrantia - were highly textured and multi-toned to add extra dimension.
We took the idea and ran with it so we made the bridal bouquet super luxurious and organic. Floral elements of hellebores, jasmine vine, sweet peas, ranunculus, scabiosa, Queen Anne's Lace, garden roses, dianthus, and eucalyptus.
The arch was built with copper piping, and we covered it in lush florals for an asymmetric, organic look. Floral elements featured in the arch include garden roses, phalaenopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, lisianthus, and snapdragons, and greens like seeded eucalyptus, feather eucalyptus, and plumosas. The aisle had wispy stems of plumosa and dainty pink wax flowers wrapped around the chairs.
Tables had four lush arrangements spilling over their vessels, and the ones placed at the ends of the tables had extra greens and sweet pea stems added to elongate the arrangement.
The floral chandelier, made up of several geometric wire ornaments, was filled with roses, cymbidiums, jasmine vine, eucalyptus, and cascading white phalaenopsis orchids.
