Lake House Bridal Inspiration
We at Ruffled are unabashedly obsessed over gorgeous floral design (tag us #ruffledblooms with your dream-like florals!) and bridal story captured by Alexandra Elise Photography is one to gawk over and over. First, it’s set in a lake house and The Rowland House has such a neutral palette for this eclectic shoot to shine bright. The lake house creates such a great backdrop that contrasts just right to make the colors and itself stand out. Second, all of the colors are so vibrant and rich. The blending of the blues, greens, hints of reds and oranges were all done so effortlessly. And last but not least, would you take a look at the bloom styling by Stacy K Floral?
From the photographer, Alexandra Elise Photography: I recently photographed a styled bridal shoot at The Rowland House which is one of the Inns of Aurora. This styled shoot was a wonderful collaboration where each vendor truly drew inspiration from the gorgeous lake house. The Rowland House is filled with colorful and eclectic design pieces which you can directly see featured in the bouquet and paper goods. The eclectic theme carries through the unique tablescape, featuring a wide variety of citrus fruit. The aroma of the decor itself was amazing! We styled the shoot around simplistic, modern bridal looks because the house and the florals truly spoke for themselves.
Throughout the shoot, bright orange orchids stood out so well against all of the blues. As main centerpieces, the florist packed bowl urns with greenery and dotted ranunculus, roses, and chrysanthemums randomly in the planters, then scattered the area with citrus fruits like moody-colored blood oranges and fun green limes.
A simple and classic invitation suite like this softens the whole look of the shoot, allowing the style and the colors to take center stage. This is a great idea if you feel that your wedding is becoming too punctuated with your theme: dress down your stationery a bit and go for a sleek and modern look!
