Ralph Lauren Inspired Shoot

We can always count on Adam Barnes Fine Art Photography to bring some serious sophistication to the wedding world. Today’s styled shoot, put together by Fête Studio with flowers from Anthomanic, seamlessly blends equestrian-inspired style with farm elegance for a look that’s reminiscent of archetypal Ralph Lauren.

From the event stylists, Fête Studio: For this Ralph Lauren inspired style shoot, we wanted to capture the designer’s unique talent for creating a style that looks simultaneously aristocratic and naturally elegant. Inspired by the crisp whites, dusty lilacs, powdery pinks and dove grays of Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2014 collection, the color palette set a romantic tone to complement the classic beauty of Mount Ida Farm in Charlottesville, VA. Then, to create a more dramatic look, we added accents of burgundy and navy and lots of texture, including plaid linens, wooden details, a long table garland, feathers, and a grand bridal bouquet of lisianthus, scabiosa and waxflowers.

Paying homage to Ralph Lauren’s equestrian flair, we dressed our bride in a second look with a black blazer, top hat and riding boots to pose with her husband and the magnificent Clydesdale horses in a field overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. We sought to craft fall wedding inspiration that exudes timelessness with a touch of drama, a nod to Ralph Lauren’s iconic brand.

Allied Arts Guild Wedding

Mint green and navy blue – has there ever been a more calming color palette? Jackie and Jeff’s wedding was a celebration of over six years spent together, and they wanted the big day to reflect their love for each other and all of the special people in their lives. Edyta Szyszlo Photography, Katie Rebecca Events and Unveiled Grace Events all hopped on board to make their vision a reality!

From the bride, Jackie: Jeff and I had been dating for just over 6 years when we got married and we basically wanted our wedding to be a really fun celebration with all the people that were important in our lives! When we began wedding planning we knew a few things that we definitely wanted: food trucks, the color mint green, and succulents. From there, our color scheme and decor evolved. I am big into crafts and details, so as wedding planning progressed, I really focused on the small and personal details and DIY stuff. Pinterest and etsy were constantly giving me new ideas and more crafts to take on (probably too many)!

We had tons of DIY projects. The aisle was lined with mint, navy, and gold yarn pom poms made by bride and groom. The ceremony backdrop was strips of coordinating fabrics and ribbon, attached to gold chain, with pom poms and fabric ends, and the aisle seats were decorated with alternating fabric strip tassels and pom poms. Our guest book was home made painted wood hearts glued to mat inside gold painted frame in alternating navy blue and mint hearts. Guests signed the hearts with a gold pen. The escort cards were home printed and the shape was punched out using large patterned hole punch, with gold glitter tape added. Escort cards were attached by clothes pins (ends dipped in navy blue or mint paints). I made all of the table runners and guest napkins in coordinating navy blue and mint green fabric. The succulents beneath bell jars were grown by groom’s step-mother, and potted in gold painted votives, while the succulents that were scattered on dinner tables were grown by groom’s step-mother and cut by bride and groom’s step mother a few days before the wedding. The comments that we got from guests were mostly related to: 1. how good the food trucks were, 2. how many little details we covered with the decor, 3. how fun the dance party was (including a choreographed dance to Timber).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Personal touches go along way! We got sooooo many compliments for all the small details and personal touches that we had throughout the wedding. If you are going to take on DIY projects, start early and limit the number of crafts you do! Also, get comfortable delegating tasks to friends! They are always willing and wanting to help. Our wedding planner was really great for month of coordinating and planning a timeline for the wedding. It saved us from having to deal with all the last minute vendor coordination that month, and helped set up all of the decor just how we envisioned it.

Bohemian Nouveau Styled Wedding

Note to self: if you want to see bohemian wedding inspiration done right, look no further than the talents of Off BEET Productions and Karma Flowers. This team made sure to let the natural beauty of their surroundings shine through, accenting it with impeccable floral design, boho gowns from Stone Fox Bride, rentals from Rent Patina and some added one-of-a-kind details we’ll wait for you to discover for yourself!

From the stylists, Karma Flowers: We wanted to create a Neo-hippie-Earth-lovers style wedding and were inspired by the gorgeous natural scenery at Cedar Lakes Estate in Port Jervis, NY. Wedding Paper Divas provided cute whimsical invites with purple feathers which helped us choose purple tones as an accent color. Stone Fox Bride wedding gowns were the perfect bohemian style to go with this shoot and when we saw their gowns in violet, as in real weddings, we started planning everything around the gowns. We kept our groom casual, with rolled up pants, and often shirtless and barefoot. (Can we start a trend here?) We “tattooed” our bride and groom with metallic Flash Tattoos in gold and silver, which reflected the light so well and really popped in the photos. Karma Flowers created an amazing flower crown with feathers, yellow peonies, Purple Smoke bush and flowing bouquets to compliment both the colors in the gowns and the natural setting. Rent Patina set up a perfect lounge area with a teepee, wooden stools, lanterns, hammock, pillows and rugs; the perfect scene for everyone to sit and start a drum circle. We wanted to create a very natural, wild, and free feeling in every aspect of this wedding.

Color was truly the most influential piece of the overall vision for this styled shoot. We knew we would be working with the vibrant colors of the Stone Fox Bridal gowns set against the browns and neutrals of the Cedar Lakes Estate backdrop. Our focus was to complement both with the flower and greens choices. The free form bouquet was a mix of Clare de Lune yellow peonies, purple Smoke Bush, blue Delphinium, and purple Scabiosa among cascading greens. The result was a saturated color against the airiness of the dresses, and we tied in the floral crown by using many of the same elements in addition to pheasant feathers. The second bouquet was a mix of pink Peonies, red ranunculus, and blue Thistle and the color popped really well in the shade of the pine trees. The dried orange headpiece and tassel necklace designs were inspired by the bouquet, using some of the same elements and adding the Scabiosa and Delphinium of the first bouquet to marry the two looks.

The colors and stem choices were then directly translated into the tablescape designs. The first centerpiece mirrored the bouquet and we used blue plates, patterned napkins and a beautiful leather and fabric table runner. The look was completed with the dried oranges and petite candlesticks. The second tablescape had more of a refined main piece, complemented by deconstructed smaller pieces in brass vessels. The look was completed with the Wedding Paper Diva menus and loose stems to provide both color and texture on the plate.
