Blush and Berry Wedding Story Inspired by Vintage Botanical Paintings
You know those luminous tablescapes, pastel blooms and ethereal wedding dresses that leave you feeling like you can fly? It’s one thing when these exist in their own parts, but when you combine them all, it creates a sense of magic and otherworldliness we didn’t know we could feel before. If you haven’t guessed it, that’s what today’s blush and berry wedding story is all about! So sit down, pour a glass of rosé and let Louis Armstrong’s La Vie En Rose croon in the background, because this delightful garden wedding inspiration is chock full of details you’ll want to take time to admire.
Fine art film photographer Carlos Hernandez is well-versed in the art of capturing a feeling. Soft, yet powerful, his images transport us to this very garden, abundant with stonework and wild ivy.
When we first spotted this tablescape, we suspected Kaleb Norman James Design had something to do with it. His signature fine art event design style plants the seed for inspiration everyday, and this dreamy editorial is no exception.
The bride in today’s garden wedding inspiration boasts a bold, yet enchanting hair and makeup look from Jen Lagers.
Bella Luna Farms is ripe with flora + fauna that has us ready for a spontaneous trip to Seattle – it’s nestled in a forest only 30 minutes from the city!
From the stylist, Kaleb Norman James Design: The inspiration behind this shoot came from the beautiful setting of Bella Luna itself. From its ivy covered walls and old world charm, we set out to create a tablescape that was garden inspired, with a focus on blush and berry tones in the floral and decor. The cake took inspiration from the stone work throughout the property, accented with paper sugar floral reminiscent of the centerpieces. The paper goods took inspiration form vintage botanical paintings and a number of the stonework carvings on the farm.
Sugar fruits and leafy petals bedeck this artfully-crafted cake from The Cakewalk Shop. Aren’t you a sucker for texture too?
Would anyone less than Dior provide these muddy pink bridal heels? Evidently not!
And of course, a loose twisted ponytail as dreamy as this calls for a wedding dress designed just as intricately. Flora Bridal accepted this mission, and the result is a beautiful v-back gown with pearl buttons, embroidered lace and a botanically-inspired bodice we can’t get enough of.
We are weak at the knees over these illustrated paper goods from Grey & Cake. Dont’cha think every invitation suite deserves an art card like this?
You can snag this sweeping gown at The Dress Theory in Seattle too!
The vintage tabletop pieces were handpicked from the treasure trove at CORT Party Rental – such beauty!
We’ll forever be lovers of fresh garden weddings, it’s true.
