Lunaria is one of those delicate floral stems we feel #blessed to have as humans. So when we caught first glimpse of this lunaria wedding inspiration, we caused a not-so-casual scene. These round silver dollars float through the naturally lit loft space with intention and grace, decorating the seating chart, sugary cake and even the bride’s hairpiece as they go. So if you’ve hopped on the dried money plant train (one of its 8,000 names), then we are pleased to pull back the curtains on this gorgeous scene!
Ohio-based wedding photographer, Kathryn Frugé, traveled all the way to Kentucky to help bring this vision to life. Je t’aime these images forever!
This shimmery dream would have never happened without Kristin of The Gifford Collective. Her eye for style is evident in the way she tied climbing greenery, embroidered lace and bold gray velvet textures together to create a finished look that leaves us breathless.
From the stylist, Kristin of The Gifford Collective: When Kaytee from Roots Floral Design mentioned her interest in incorporating lunaria into our editorial wedding styled shoot, shot in Lexington, Kentucky at The Livery – I was sold! Kaytee wanted to utilize the delicate dried flower to show that when designed well, dried flowers can be gorgeous and add a romantic elegance to bouquets and table arrangements.
As each vendor came on board to collaborate we chatted about the shimmery white, silver dollar-sized seed pods and ways we could weave them throughout. Kristen from Five Dot Design had the brilliant idea to mimic the lunaria by using capiz shells to create a beautiful seating chart and Rebecca of The Cookie Social created a simple but stunning two-tiered cake that made the perfect backdrop for the dried plant pods.
Lunaria + anemone is a dynamic duo if we ever saw one. You go Roots Floral Design.
I was inspired to use a muted tone-on-tone color palette and the luxurious velvet linen and matte dinnerware from Bryant’s Rent-All paired with the leather napkin ties created the ideal mix of masculine and feminine. Shelbi Lawhorn kept the makeup fresh and flawless and the soft updo was perfectly highlighted by the lunaria. The structured lace bodice and striped full skirt on Nolan, the Tara LaTour gown from L’Atelier Couture Bridal Nashville, paired so well with the cement gray suit from Generation Tux.
The natural light provided by the skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows in the horse stable turned event venue allowed Kathryn Frugé Photography the opportunity to shoot a mix of digital and film. Brides looking for a fresh take on a monochromatic color palette will find loads of inspiration in these images!
