Valerie is on the blog today sharing all about this elegant autumn inspired shoot!
When Christa Taylor approached me about collaborating on this photo shoot, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I have had the honor of working with Christa on past weddings and style shoots and have great respect for her impeccable style, incredible attention to detail and beautiful photography. Her joyful countenance and professional attitude make her shoe in for wedding photography. I jumped at the chance to work with her again.
Autumn in the PNW can be lush, colorful, and romantic while we wanted to highlight the natural, seasonal elements of the season yet staying away from stereotypical oranges and yellows. Building off of a classic navy base and adding seasonal fruits, wood elements, touches of gold, and lush greenery to complete this abundant and elegant shoot!
One of my favorite aspects of shoots is watching every vendor bring in their own execution and interpretation of the look. Lux Sucre wowed us all with the incredibly detailed cake, complete with gold leaf and wine sauce. Katiedid & Co beautifully embodied natural elegance with her watercolor and gold embroidery hoops for our creative spin on keepsake place cards. Letters & Dust brought in her amazing talents with beautiful hand-lettered mirrors. Kelsey Malie Calligraphy pulled together gorgeous elements to complete this custom invitation suite. Flowery Farmgirl did an amazing job pulling in beautiful PNW elements to create the lush hanging arrangement and highlighting seasonal foliage, rich colors, and textures in the stunning centerpieces and bouquet. I brought in a natural cotton runner, fresh currents, and pears to complete the farm-to-table, abundant tablescape.
All the details
From custom painted chargers and a locally focused menu to the unique cigar bar and vintage getaway car, this shoot was full of gorgeous, thoughtful details. It was truly a joy to work with many talented women to create this shoot. We hope it provides fresh inspiration and ideas to future brides!
