We’re huge fans of today’s DIY project, not only because we’re rose gold and copper-biased, but it can also be done fairly quickly and customized to whatever size you’d like to use. We chose to create a delicate cake topper, but you can certainly recreate the tutorial on a bigger scale to make a garland or a larger wreath to display at your reception (or even in your home). Thank you to Opal+Rose Photo for capturing the step-by-step images and end result!
I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.
As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.
As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.
Just in time for delightful fall weather, Ashlee Mintz Photography graces us with this equally-delightful bridal inspiration. Designed by Arielle Fera Events, the shoot is set in a lovely moody color palette with the prettiest shades of seasonal colors outside of the norm of oranges and browns, like cool plums, charcoal grey, and navy blue. Lightening up the wedding editorial are the exceptional dresses in neutral shades to die for. Let’s not forget about the insanely-good arrangements by Allium Floral Design; from the wedding centerpieces to the bouquets, the floral designs were one of the many cherries on top of this wedding shoot!
From the photographer, Ashlee Mintz Photography: Collaborating with Arielle Fera Events to bring this dark moody vision to life led to the most beautiful, gothic, and romantic wedding inspiration. This shoot has a lot of different elements/details, from the lush floral tablescape to the cabbage that lies under a marble name card. The palette included rich, deep tones of purples, blacks, charcoals, and blues. These jewel tones evoked the most magical setting for a stunning bride and her bridesmaids.
