Love, Lavender & Lemonade: A Styled Shoot
Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope you have all got off to a great start to the week! Today we have something extraordinarily beautiful for you to swoon over. This shoot is perfect for those of you who find inspiration in nature and have a touch of rustic flare. With olive trees, lemons and lavender being prominent throughout this shoot I can only imagine how sensational the aromas were, I just wish I could have been there. One can but dream!!!
Here is stylist Katie Baxendale to tell us more…
“This shoot was inspired by the natural, beautifully serene surroundings at Rock Creek Vineyard. I wanted to use the “fruits of the land” as main players in the décor. Lush with a gorgeous olive tree grove, vibrant patches of wild lavender and rows upon rows of magnificent grape vines, this private estate offered every element for a breath taking wedding backdrop. Wild deer were continually crossing our paths, galloping majestically through the nearby meadow, as were incredible birds, feasting on the fruits dropped from the orchard trees. The owners and manager of this boutique winery treated us like family, offering their home, land, tasting room (and wine) to us with open arms.
Hues of mustard, lavender, creams, olives and greys were brought together, by mixing in beautiful antique furniture and props from Pieces of Time, stunning floral arrangements and garlands from The Pollen Mill and custom signage and vignette styling from Seamless Details. Crystal Lynn Collins Photography masterfully captured the true beauty of these colors and settings in her images.
Soft curls and natural make up, emphasizing the bride’s striking eyes was flawlessly done by Jessica Elise, which complimented the cream vintage lace gown the bride wore, effortlessly. Everything was natural, with just enough vulnerability to show that weddings in nature are intended to be just that, naturally beautiful, without too much fuss. When the canvas is strewn with beauty, it only needs small touches to make a big impact.”
