The bride and groom featured in this styled shoot were married two months before this shoot took place. Their real wedding was featured on sister publication Wedding Fanatic (For The Love of Purple) and leaped at the chance to participate in another wedding shoot. They had so much fun because the pressure was off, no guests were waiting for them and they could just focus on each other.
A bit about the shoot…
When I first viewed the tented space, I decided I wanted to work with the traditional elegance of the all white tent, but add a splash of color and modern flair. I was inspired by blue toilet but did not want to go overboard with the pattern, so there are hints of it in the cake and stationery, and of course through the blue and white color scheme. I muted the strong navy blue linens with the filmy white floral appliques for a romantic and luxurious effect. Touches of platinum were added in the glassware, tableware and chargers, which echoed the candelabras. The framed guest seating charge included more frames for an elegant effect. The pretty sweet table of petit fours and other sweet treats was a special touch that served as a centerpiece to the room.
The Planner’s Advice
♥ Have a separate wedding session after the wedding day. You will be able to relax and take fantastic photos as all of the stress of the wedding day and getting to your guests is off of you. Remember to have fun, this is a party is to celebrate the two of you! Make sure to incorporate elements of your relationship into all features of your wedding to create a great, personal wedding.
♥ Work with the reception space to develop your theme and decor rather than working against it, to create a cohesive and comfortable ambiance.
♥ Include special touches like sweet treats, savory bars, entertainment or interactive stations to make your guests feel special and welcome.
