There’s nothing dreamier in the world of poets than Pablo Neruda and his romantic sonnets. With phrases like “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where” (perfect for vows, right?), it was only a matter of time before beautiful wedding inspiration was born from these verses. A loud thank you to For the Love of Juneau for the wonderful photos with oodles of ideas to fawn over, Simply Charming Socials for the darling shoot and all of the creativity woven into it, and to Studio Aesthete for mimicking romance into flowers.

From designer and stylist, Kristine Cholakian Cooke of Simply Charming SocialsOur creative team collaborated in the mountains of North Georgia to create a dreamy elopement editorial shoot inspired by the romantic words of Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda. From the poem, we interpreted phrases such as “salt rose” and “the light of those flowers”… We wanted to display romance in it’s most raw form and the day was captured just so by Briana Luders of For the Love of Juneau.

In designing the shoot, we chose a palette of crema, sandalwood, mauve, mulberry, sea foam, and stone and incorporated these new neutrals into each element of the elopement from florals to place settings. Sweet words of lettered poetry adorn gauzy fabric and stepping stones. Lairsey Paper Co. also penned a full invitation suite in mulberry hued ink and we finished it off with vintage stamps. The flames of taper candles, a breezy gown, and rich lush blooms all provide movement and texture. We wanted each moment to feel natural and romantic as the wind blew. A hanging floral installation but Studio Aesthete sets the scene for vows. Mauve is the key color here, highlighted by an incredible panel of neutrals and punctuated by deep mulberry.

The bride and groom are dressed beautiful in very textured fabrics. The Elizabeth Dye gown, with it’s lengthy train and flowy long sleeves drapes so well on the auburn haired bride. And paired with a silk tulle veil from The Sentimentalist and a modern updo and fresh makeup by Hope Ferguson, she looks timeless. The groom is handsomely dressed in a fitted wool suit by Commonwealth Proper, a favorite custom menswear shop in Atlanta. The colored flecks in his suit and tie complement the beautiful tone in his eyes. During the ceremony couple reads the sweetest words to each other in an intimate canopy of greenery and garland and also joins their fabric-swathed hands in an old-world wedding ritual.

A draped table set for two holds precious place settings for mister and missus. With layers of gauzy fabric to tiers of plates and paper, each detail is unexpectedly matched to create exquisite seating for the couple for their candlelit post-nuptial meal. Other details include a fruit-adorned vanilla bean cake, amethyst colored champagne flutes for the bubbly, and a gorgeous vintage ring from Trumpet & Horn.
