Something about jewel tones and the autumn season just make them perfect for each other, don’t you think? This creative team of Ashley Slater Photography, Michaela Noelle Designs, and Lindsay Coletta Designs certainly seem to think so, and we agree. Deep and dramatic floral design merges with rich berry hues to create an absolutely magical wedding inspiration shoot!

From the event designer, Michaela Noelle: Deep berry hues mixed with feminine gold touches, whimsically designed floral arrangements with plenty of greenery, vintage china carrying out our color story, the most elegant chandelier, a dessert bar unlike anything we’ve ever seen, a romantic and flowy gown, and a stunning bride and groom who share a sweet love story. This is what our romantic, wintery inspiration shoot was made of. When we dream up the inspiration shoots for The Bloom Workshop guests to practice photographing and styling, our goal is to create something exceedingly gorgeous, different from what a bride might choose for her actual wedding day, and put together a story that is filled with unique, tiny details (perfect for the prettiest of detail shots!).

My personal favorite color is purple, but it’s often hard to find an elegant way to incorporate this hue into design schemes. The right shade is key! Because we wanted to design a scheme suited for both Fall and Winter, a deep plum and berry-purple seemed perfectly appropriate. I kept calling the palette “berry”, so from there we came up with a berry inspiration shoot, adorned with edible and delicious varieties of berries, seen in many aspects of the design. From blackberries dripping from our main floral centerpiece, to raspberries and more blackberries gracefully draping off every square inch of our dessert bar, it certainly was a shoot filled with inspiration. Each of the artists involved in the day poured their heart into their portion of the design. I loved how the two set ups (the dining table and dessert bar) complimented one another, by tying in the gold and berry elements, in the most beautiful of ways. A bold color palette is worth the risk, especially when paired with soft details!
