Ballet Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What could be more perfect for a Valentine’s Day inspiration shoot than one influenced by ballet, one of the most romantic dances of all time? Michelle Boyd Photography and Katy Bohls of Without Wax, Katy put together this absolutely lovely photo session with an inspiring tablescape, incredible floral design, and some truly elegant design ideas for any Valentine or wedding.

From Katy of Without Wax, Katy: When I hear Valentine’s Day, I think feminine. Soft, graceful and elegant. And to me, the essence of feminine is a ballerina. How they seemingly float on air as light as one could be. Our model, Cassia Wilson, is a trained ballerina and currently an apprentice with the Austin Ballet. She has an amazing ability to glide effortlessly, making each movement meaningful.

Michelle Boyd’s talent is incredible. She was able to freeze frame the fluidity of each delicate motion without fail. Part of the day was spent shooting in classic black and white film. Doesn’t it just make your heart skip a beat? Makenzi Laine created a modern take on a classic bun, and polished Cassia’s natural beauty with soft makeup and the most stunning deep plum lip color. The color palette, while not your typical Valentine’s combination, is the perfect balance of understated sophistication and wildly romantic. Rich tones of berry blues and plums, paired with fuchsia filled the table, as the centerpiece danced and took center stage.
